In Topic: Looking to cut cable, how to watch wings games?

25 April 2014 - 02:04 PM

Legally (which is the only type of conversation allowed on this site so they won't press charges against Matt), your best option is Centre Ice.  The bad part about it is that if a game is available in your area, you are blacked out. 


Unless I'm mistaken, I believe that this means that you would be blacked out for any games on FSD if you live in the Detroit area.


I did try it during the half-season following the lockout, and was blacked out for Wild games since I'm in the FSN area, which sucked if FSN decided to show the Twins or T-wolves or something stupid like that.


You're also blacked out for anything NBC-related and anything on NHLN, which really sucked for me since I can't get NHLN and don't have an expensive enough package for NBCSNBS.


If you have a fancy phone, you can go that route and I think you get games regardless of where you live, albeit on a teensy screen.


They kind of have you over a barrel for legal viewing.  Bastards.


I looked into Center Ice and discovered local games would be blacked out....   stupid cable.   Was talking to WOW today and they tried making me an offer I couldn't refuse for Cable+TV which is less than half the price of what Comcraptastic is charging me, so I might go that route.

The Wings look completely outclassed and half asleep the last 2 games.  I was excited after game 1 that this was going to be a fun series to watch, the new guys looked hungry and the whole team was competing well.  Jimmy looked good too.  It looks like the team from game 1 went home, and I have no idea who's playing now.  Not sure if it's the pressure or Boston stepping up their game after the loss, probably a combination of both.

I have my Molson and Jameson ready for this.... LGW!


Hoping we get game 1 Jimmy instead of game 2 Jimmy.  He got m hopes up, only to fall apart on Sunday.

I remember Steve Yzerman night being pretty long, maybe an hour and a half?  I'd say get there 2 hours before to be safe.

In Topic: Hockeytown authentics is not really authentic

Ugh, Reeeeebok!!!!!  I knew this was going to happen sooner or later.  I haven't shopped for a jersey in a while, but when looking for a winter classic authentic I ran into the Indonesian made "authentic" edge jerseys (indo-edge).  I wouldn't mind if they dropped the price on these, but they're still charging a premium.  And as stated above, they market them as "what the pros wear" which is a lie.


You used to be able to get a real good quality replica back in the day, when CCM, Koho, Nike, etc made them.  Materials were nice, constructions was great, and they last forever.  Reebok replicas are not as nice, with thin material.  Looks like the authentics are going down the same path.


There are still ways to get authentic Edge 2.0 jerseys just like the team wears, some Canadian shops sell them. Frozen Pond had them, but they look to be sold out.  You can get the regular team jersey though: http://www.frozenpon...ey-jerseys.html


It's Canadian made, and is the exact item they're going to wear on the ice.
