#2348964 WOW Cable Subscribers - FSD, FSD+ Issues During Wings Games

Posted by Holmstrom96 on 29 January 2013 - 10:51 PM

The last few games, especially the game on the night of 1/29/13 WOW Cable cable subscribers have had video quality issues that range from "annoying" to "unwatchable" to just plain no signal at all.


Here's an example of the way WOW Cable subscribers experience Detroit Red Wings Hockey:  https://www.facebook...200521990521174


Please understand WOW customers, you ARE alone in these issues.  Folks on these forums have reported NO issues with Comcast, U-verse, and DirecTV.  Only WOW Cable has these repeated outages affecting FSD and FSD+ and Red Wings' game coverage.


For those of you that are sick of missing hockey games and watching as the audio cuts in and out, there are a few things we can do:


1.  Report these unresolved issues to LARA (Licensing and Regulatory Affairs):  http://www.dleg.stat.../videocomp.html

2.  Light up WOW's marketing tool, their Facebook page:  https://www.facebook...owbuzz?filter=2

3.  Light up their Twitter feed:  https://twitter.com/TheWOWBuzz

4.  Call WOW and tell them that if you don't get service, they don't get paid.  Demand a partial refund.  Call them at (866) 496-9669.  Take option 3 (service issues) then option 1 (video service)



Light 'em folks, let them know we didn't wait this long to miss the 48 games that we do get!

Not sure if this has been posted yet but here's Tootoo's first fight.  I hadn't seen it because I only caught the third period. 


What's with the refs jumping in so fast??



And his second fight.




So far he's squaring up when he fights, bringing energy, hitting guys, no cheap stuff...   I'm coming around on Tootoo.

#2345635 Schenn suspended 1 game for a clean hit

Posted by toby91_ca on 23 January 2013 - 09:30 PM

I understand why some people have a problem with the suspension, but they need to get over it and understand that you can't hit like that.  It really isn't that difficult to avoid.  The video even acknowledges that players will leave their feet sometimes on natural follow through, but he clearly went airborn long before contact.


If the shoulder went into his chest, it would simply be a 2 minute minor for charging.  Since it made contact with the head, it's a suspension.  Simple as that really.

#2333151 [Retired] Official Lockout Thread

Posted by Nightfall on 31 October 2012 - 07:11 PM

Just a quick note to those of you who I have been interacting with....

First off, I would like to apologize for my crappy behavior. I have sent out a few parting shots at people, and this isn't the way to act on a public forum. As many of you know, I feel strongly about this situation in blaming both sides for their conduct. I also understand that I am in a forum of people who, as a majority, like the NHLPA and what they stand for. While I don't agree with everything everyone says here, there are some good points being made for the NHLPA that I acknowledge. There are also some things which I believe to be incorrect that I have tried to correct people on, but not the right way to do so. Some of the parting shots I have thrown people have not been right and I wouldn't like it if I was put in your shoes.

To put it simply, I am going to be tossing in discussion points, but I won't be engaging people in active discussion like I have been. I really have been almost emotionally involved in this discussion because of just how upset I am with the NHL and NHLPA with this whole mess. This lockout has consumed me to a certain point, and that is bad for my health. I have spent time on social networking publicly speaking about the faults of both of these sides and how upset I am with them. This is not the kind of person I am to be honest. This coming from someone who is positive, energetic, a leader, respectable, and most importantly, a real hockey fan.

To those of you who I have upset, I apologize.

To those of you who are typing up responses to things I have posted here, don't anticipate a reply.

I will still be active, but I am really going to knock things down and go low key for a while. Its time I put this lockout and the way I feel about it out of my head and concentrate on something else. Maybe computer games, work, refereeing hockey, or any one of the many things I enjoy doing. This lockout is really upsetting, but its time to move on.

Thank you all!

#2311173 Paul Gaustad re-signs with Predators

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 29 June 2012 - 04:01 PM

He wouldnt be awful compared to some other names mentioned on this forum like Ott and some other injury ridden players. Price is the key factor which im sure he will get overpaid like everyone does. Blahhh....

Ott 39 points 278 hits +5 on a non-playoff team last season. Gaustad a whopping 21 points and a -1.

I'm just sayin.. both guys come at about the same price, Ott will double up Gaustad in points, hits, and he will drop the gloves and stick up for his teammates. Not seeing the appeal of Gaustad over Ott.

#2270816 Call the team out

Posted by 55fan on 16 March 2012 - 05:54 PM

Yeah, I'm still waiting for an answer for all the posters who make that comparison.

All 764 of them.

Oh, blast. I hit the +1 instead of the reply. Ok, next time you say something cool, I won't plus you. Knowing you, I shouldn't have to wait long.

I can only speak for myself on this, but where I'm seeing the comparison is in the attitude of people around here.

In 2008 we had a top pairing of Lilja and Lebda. We were missing Hasek, Cleary, Lids, Raffy, Kronner, and Cheli. We didn't yet have Stuart. We had Garret Stafford. 'Nuf said.

We lost 10 of 11 games. We were at the top of the heap before that. People panicked. Hair was torn out. People gave up and whined and wailed.

Fast forward to today. We were at the top. We had a herd of injuries. We've missed Howard, Pavel, Bert, Lids, Eaves, Jonny, and now possibly Joey and Mule. We are losing games. Cue the panic, hair tearing, whining, and wailing.

There are a lot of differences between the two seasons. I'd say more differences than similarities, but the similarities are there. We're not tearing it up, especially not on the PP this year, but we did have a nice little win streak going.

So there are some comparisons, and since 2008 ended up groovy enough, we hope that the similarities continue.

There's your answer. I'm sure you'll rip it to shreds. You have a good enough memory and you're knowledgeable enough that you've already made these connections and you're just challenging people to come out and say that the similarity is that we've had injuries and falsely come to the conclusion that since we had injuries then and won a Cup that injuries mean that we will win a Cup.

But I think that the people making the comparisons are doing it less because they think that we are assured of a win, and more to challenge the whiners and nay-sayers who think that because we're in 4th place, we are doomed to miss the playoffs, and it will be the '80s all over again.

In other words, people are making the comparison to a Cup-winning team to prove that winning a Cup despite injuries has happened, not to predict that it will happen again. Why? Because it's so much more polite than saying, "Shut the f*** up." every time someone wrings their hands and waves their hanky.

My $.02. If I was paid by the word, I'd charge you more.
