Tired of being blacked out

Al Greenwood, Macklin Sask.

I live a few hours from the local NHL team and as such I have very little time to get to Edmonton or Calgary to watch a live game.

I get my hockey fix from NHL Center Ice and I have finally had it with getting cheated. I am sitting at my desk writing in anger instead of watching my Hawks play the Flames because there is no local broadcast that isn’t blacked out except pay-per-bend-over-and-grab-your-ankles.

I pay a lot for my hockey programming and yet it isn’t enough for Gary and the gang. I for one am disappointed a league that needs all the fans it can get would pull such a thing.

So much for growing the game, Mr. Bettman. My family won’t be watching.
