    Perhaps I will send this inquiry, as I’m fighting the urge to type in CAPS. HEH HEH HEH
    Do we NOT think that there is going to be a huge complaint to the league for this DAMN VERSUS JOINED IN PROGRESS thing ??? What does this say to the DIRECT TV subscriber who paid for the CENTRE ICE package ???
    On another unrelated topic, do ya think that the KINGS can possibly upset the CANUCKS in their series ??? I’m assuming we’re in agrement that the WINGS won;t have a problem with the DOGS, as well as the SHARKS over the AV’S. Lemme know. TOM

    I sent an inquiry to the league for a clarification of that damned versus JIP crap. I suggested that the Hawks game be carried on one of the direct tv hockey channels of 770-784. Once the East conference game is over, then the coverage on 770-784 could terminate, in favor of a versus exclusive, so that Hawk fans don’t miss the action. And don’t forget; with S.D.O.T., there is always the chance we could miss most of the game. THAT JUST PLAIN IS STUPID !!! I gotta believe that there is gonna be major fallout from this boneheaded schedule. If I get a response from the league, I’ll pass it on. H T H
