THIS HAS TO STOP. IT'S TIME TO MAKE OUR VOICES HEARD.
I'm furious. I'm angry. I'm incensed (spl? Don't care...too mad).
Seriously, it's enough now. It's time for a change. I've dealt with this in silence for many a night. Indeed, the solution to the problem was easy; but, there should be no need for a solution, as this should not be a problem today.
We have been watching hockey for many years. We have had the luxury of pvr for many years. Why is it, today, that we still do not have a full time allottment for scheduled hockey games??? (Yes, that's what I'm upset about. How can you not be?!!)
Seriously, have you ever (EVER!) seen a hockey game end in 2 and 1/2 hours? Has it ever happened in the expansion era? Why do I, the consumer, have to take added precautions to ensure that I can watch the full event? Heck, hockey night in canada last week went well over the three hour allottment CBC so generously provides the viewer.
But no, not TSN...not Sportsnet... why must we suffer so?? (I just realized I will be missing the end of last nights game because i forgot to record the HOUR after the game... jeebus!)
I'm serious about the following statement and I come to the good folk of the SB nation community to make our dreams a reality:
We need to start a petition to get both of these inept, inconsiderate entities to change their misbegotten ways. I'm writing this post because a) I really am annoyed, b) I'm sure I'm not alone, and c) I have no idea where to start. Simply emailing them will accomplish nothing...
Please help, SB Nation!!
Thank you for listening.
