Redwings should be available for all to watch

This is an absolute outrage. I'm going to cross over and become a democrat, a liberal of the greatest proporions, a fascist, a progressive, and make a law making it completely illegal to put a Detroit Redwings game on any channel that can't be picked up by all sports maniacs.

Here my Redwings are up 4-0 and set to move into the next series, and I can't watch the game. Ahh, what is a man to do. That does it. The conservative movement has failed. I will no longer associate myself with a movement that can't even succeed at bringing me the Redwings game.

It must be George Bush's doing. It's his fault. He didnt' do anything to stop the free marketing of NHL games. We need to have more regulations on TV sports. We need to make sure great games are brought to all the good folks (especially me). Who cares about the NHL and the Redwings making more money free marketing their product on TV channels that are unreachable by all Americans. What they are doing is unfair, and must be stopped.

We need to make a law banning the free marketing of the NHL, and make it available to all the good people. This is a people movement. It's for the morale of the people.

It is absolutely unacceptable that someone like me shouldn't be able to watch a Redwings game. And, if my new progressive law is enacted, no more Redwings fans will ever have to suffer.

Thanks for allowing me to rant.

Too funny. But why stop there. The Dems should just ad Direct TV as an entitlement, then everybody wins.

I think I'll drop versus after the series but until then . . . GO WINGS!

Go WINGS!!!!! They win.

Freadom can you go to a sports bar and get some wings and watch the game? We can compromise, I can appease your need to watch man sports as long as screaming is at a minimum. BTW my husband bless his heart has been a Detroit Lions fan his whole life. He is avid. Its a painful life. I am going to try to keep from my son. It is kindof a bummer because the Lions are the same color as BYU and he HATES BYU with a passion. GO WINGS! :)N

Great point Nikki. We need government funded daycare so that I can go to the sports bar if I can't pick up the wings on TV. Better yet, gov. funded delivery service to deliver some wings from the sportsbar.

Nikki, your husband is a Lions fan out there? God bless him. It's tough enough to be one here.

Hey, blame Satan himself, Gary Bettman, so-called NHL president/commissioner. Why in the name of Lord Stanley's Cup is the NHL on some cable/satellite network called VS? Bettman, like baseball's so-called commissioner, Bud Selig, seem hell bent on destroying all that is good about ice hockey. How about some real marketing of the NHL? It is what it will take to break through. It is certainly better than soccer! And, what is worse than being a Detroit Lions fan? Being a fan of the Los Angeles Kings!
