Default NBC screwing Detroit and Canadian Wings fans

Just heard that NBC is not allowing the Wings to show game 6 on Joevision, and also not allowing CBC to show it as well. As if that asshole Bettman and his tricks aren't bad enough, now NBC joins in on the screw the Wings bandwagon that screws the fans as well.

I had a hunch feeling that's why games 1 and 2 where back to back as well, because NBC didn't want to waste monday night prime time on a hockey game so they pushed for a sunday game.

I'd be surprised if CBC couldn't broadcast the game though.

what he is saying is that they will not allow the redwings to have joe vision for game 6 because they say that it will hurt the ratings
cbc went ahead and said to the wings that they will honor nbc and not let them show it on the cbc channel at the joe
they are doing the same for pitsburg as well
they didnt get to see the game 5 beating it mellon for the same reason
but you can bet if it goes to a game 7 they will change the rules i bet

this irritates me. joe vision or any similar event at another arena is a good thing. money gets spent, concessions are open and those people are working who would otherwise not be on that day.

It's because it's hockey. Outside of the snowbelt, no one gives a fukc, so NBC doesn't give a fukc either.

RE: Your imposed black out of the Stanley Cup game 6 broadcast at the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit.

Dear Sirs,
 
I had not planned on attending the JoeVIsion broadcast for Game 6.  I had intended on watching the game on NBC in the comfort of my home.
 
However, due to your insensitive corporate network decision, I will now be taking advantage of our ability to watch CBC in the Detroit area.  I am boycotting NBC for the remainder of the playoffs.
I am also encouraging others to do the same through a variety of social and hobby websites.
 
There are many watching options here in the Detroit area.  Many sports bars will be filled with people cheering on our team.  The number of people at the Joe would not have made a significant difference in your ratings.  In fact, I know many who have opted for a sports bar since the Joe is not available.  In other words, no ratings gain for you.
 
You are also not helping the economic problems in the Detroit area with your decision.  People who would have had employment opportunities during this event are now without.  Charities that would have benefited from attendees admissions and concessions will now have to also do without.
 
I say, shame on you for your greedy stance.  I would hope many more follow my lead and bring your ratings down.

Sincerely

how many people attend Joe Vision? 10,000 at the most? NBC is worried about 10,000 local hockey fans? What a bunch of asshats

People in Michigan need things like Joe Vision to get us through the crappy days. Anything that helps unite Michiganders should be a good thing. Way to kick us while we're down, poopface.

Just another reason why the NHL needs to get away from dealing with NBC. NBC is dictating to the NHL on how to run their schedule even when it comes to the Stanley Cup Finals. Ridiculous!
