TV timeout troubles

I have an issue, a serious issue, with these "TV timeouts."

I was at the Oilers-Canadiens game and Montreal was fighting to get back in the game. Seemed like every time in the third period, when they put pressure and gained momentum, Dwayne Roloson would cover the puck, and "tweet," there is a three minute TV timeout.

What a way to ruin momentum.

Want to increase scoring? Get rid of that stupid timeout.

I don’t care about advertising; I care about hockey.
