#2261125 Real Sports on Lokomotiv crash

Posted by Zata fan 40 on 23 February 2012 - 06:19 PM

I watched the whole thing. It was mentioned that Russia's 2nd tier air travel companies which most teams use is about 3% of the world air travel but accounts for 40% of the most recently major crashes. They interviewed a guy high up in the KHL. He says teams use "few dollars" to arrange best air travel possible. The interviewer called him out at how ridiculous it sounded where they pay players millions but yet only have a few extra dollars for travel. Barry Smith said there were trips where he could pick his seat up and move it around on the plane. They also interviewed a player (who was blacked out for anonymity) and he said they were told they would be flying on a new plane but it ended up being real old and beaten up that it even had the Russian players asking why they were on this plane.

Anywhere online to watch the whole thing?

Anywhere to watch the whole thing? Saw what was on the link and that was only like a minute or two.

As much as I'd like to see the Leafs and the O6 teams in the East,I'd miss just as many in the West.

Here is a better option for you...hunt down a blank replica on ebay(usually get them for 15 to 20 sometimes even less) and send them to SportsK. Keep the money in the US and in Michigan and get professional customization for 47 bucks. No money going to unregulated theives and you support your LOCAL economy for a good price.

It's a nice knee-jerk response, but when you think about it, it doesn't hold water.

Let's go with a head-to-head comparison. Datsyuk, home jersey, size 50.

From shop.nhl.com

  • Appliqué numbers/letters, not stitched.
  • No fight strap
  • Thinner material
  • Cost- $149.99

From ECSeller
  • Stitched numbers/letters
  • Fight strap- at least on most
  • Thicker material
  • Cost- $49.99

If you ignore the seller name, the NHL "Official" one should be cheaper- thinner material, iron-on patches. Yet, it's triple the price. I already have authentic Chelios and Helm jerseys, I buy the T-shirts, and I go to the games. I feel no need to drop $150 for a lesser jersey.

Please explain how my "knee jerk reaction" doesn't hold water? Are they stealing? Yes they are. That is plain and simple and always a problem with China and not just in stupid jerseys. Maybe you would feel different if someone else stole your idea/work and made profit from it while you lost. Don't worry about ties to organized crime/terrorism(don't kid yourself and think that it's not true), jobs are lost, economy is affected, child labor laws violated,health concerns, loss of tax revenue,etc. So enjoy your stolen goods for cheap,but the long term effects will cost you far more.
