All of this Homer hate in here is just pathetic. You are all sad people.

#2265341 Nystrom hit on Letang

Posted by cnot19 on 01 March 2012 - 10:03 AM

I think it was a clean hit. Letang put himself in a terrible position at the last minute, at that speed its hard to change course at the last minute.

#2263298 How to watch TSN Tradecentre in US?

Posted by edicius on 27 February 2012 - 09:43 AM

cause you probably still have to install the plugin.

Nope, I installed the plugin (I've used Veetle at home before). Firewall's blocking the feed.

Sportsnet has a feed up today, so that's something.


#2259869 Kyle Quincey traded to Detroit in 3 team trade (TBL & COL)

Posted by RedWingsRox on 21 February 2012 - 04:51 PM

Looks like some kid named Quincey is thanking his lucky stars.
Agent to Kyle, 'You've been traded from Col to Tampa.'
Quincey, "Oh ...".
Agent, "Wait, you've just been dealt to Detroit" ...
Quincey, "OMG, is this for real? Tell me I'm not dreaming!"

#2259319 Sharks May overcome your streak. Otherwise it would be a great game.

Fun Fact: Joe Thorton cries more then Cindy Crosby. Someone should re-post the picture of Mule using a light saber to cut off Joe's legs.

That animated gif was the single greatest Photoshop War win of all time.

As requested. Credit to kook_10, this was brilliant!

#2259221 Canucks Vs Detroit in Motor City

Posted by evilzyme on 20 February 2012 - 08:20 AM

I don't see it as big as what most Canuck fans think it is. I would rather not have Detroit lose either of these next two games against Chicago and Vancouver, but reality says we will fall to one of them or atleast drop a game in the near future. To think the Wings can continue their outstanding streak at home for the remainder of the season with majority games being played at home is unrealistic. To think Thursday's game is anything more than a regular season game, well you'd have to be a Vancouver fan.

My response was aimed solely at the "blaming" comment. It's one thing to set up such a site, but another to then complain when the copyright owner steps in and exercises their legal rights.

I really didn't see him as complaining. I think it was more of just letting people know why it wasn't there anymore and to thank people for using it. But that's just how I read it.

It probably happened because it's so obvious it didn't need to be mentioned. OP isn't naive I'm sure. No need for "Duh, what did you expect" (paraphrase)or other remarks. thanking him for his time and efforts was really all that needed to be said.

I can agree to that. On the same token, bitching about the NHL solves nothing either. A simple thank you, as you said, is really all that is required.

Hello fellow Red Wings fans. Before the 2011-2012 NHL season started, I decided to register the domain freeredwings.tv and operate a site providing live streams of Detroit Red Wings games. Yesterday, I received a cease and desist email from an NHL attorney ordering me to stop any and all unauthorized streaming of NHL copyrighted works. With the recent arrest of a Comstock Park, MI man for copyright infringement, I have made the difficult and unfortunate decision to stop streaming NHL games. I am expecting my first child in August and I cannot get arrested, especially over something like this. I would like to thank the letsgowings community for always linking to the site in the GDT and being grateful and appreciative fans. I hope you enjoyed what I was able to provide. I would have loved to continue providing the service, but you can thank the NHL for ruining the party.

Sorry that happened to you. I know many people really appreciated you streaming the games but of course you don't need to deal with legal problems. Good luck with your new little one!

I'm sorry to hear about this. I've been very thankful of your site ever since I started experiencing problems with drumnj's stream. There's no way for me to be able to afford the channels needed for watching NHL here.

Thank you for everything. It was great while it lasted.

I would have loved to continue providing the service, but you can thank the NHL for ruining the party.

While I confess to having watched a streamed game or two after losing the battle for control of the family TV, I don't "blame" the NHL for anything in the C&D letter. Let's not kid ourselves, unauthorized streaming of copyrighted programming is blatantly illegal. It doesn't matter if it's "for profit" or done as a service for fellow fans. I'm sorry that you no doubt had the daylights scared out of you when you opened the letter, but could you really not see this coming? You registered a domain that screams "Hey, free illegal streaming of Red Wings games over here!!!!" I mean, dude......!

It's also not a Crosby-lovin'-Bettman thing. Show me one major sporting body that doesn't defend their broadcasts in such a manner.
