11 days to preseason
Heres something for us to gnaw on:

I don't watch/follow "woke" sports, like the NFL
so I’ll take your word for it Zontar… I’m sure there will be some bugs to work out, but at least they’ve been working on it elsewhere first, it saves us being the guinea pig.
With so many platforms between the old school laptop/desktops and the ever evolving smartphones I imagine it’s a job to keep it all functioning for everyone. That being said, without criticism, who would change anything; it must be wonderful as is! So, if it REALLY SUCKS, let’s LET ‘EM HAVE IT, lol.
I have wondered about "thumbs up/down" set of toggles vs. "rec" only, but i’m probably better off with the safety of just "3 recs" rather than seeing "7 thumbs down" that would probably accompany my comments.

Just read up on this… the "Sponsor Ad" will be limited to 3.0 × 3.5 inches. About the size of the old school "Goals for Kids" patch.
a) certainly not large enough to be overly distracting
b) not larger that the helmet stickers of last year, and who paid attention to that, really? I’d occassionaly think "yeah, they’re doing that…" but ask me who other than Bell was on a helmet in the playoffs… can’t remember, don’t care.
c) "Goals for Kids" or "Husky Oil" may be a charity vs a corporate sponsor, but they are still ads, so lets not say this is anything new.
Over the boards goes Ehlers...
this shift brought to you by Skinners in Lockport, there he goes behind the net, little give and go with your Safeway #81 Kyle Connor, turned over at center, picked up by Sidney "US Steel" Crosby, slips through the D, and BAM! beats Pavelic. Pavelic, brought to you by Sunny Days Beach Balls, cause Pavelic can catch one of those. We’ll take 30 second break, brought to you by Molson, and be right back.
The worst for ads on everything
When I still watched it, all I looked for was the 20 car. Some days it was Home Depot, other days Mobile 1, another it was Bass Pro… could have cared less, all I was looking for was the number 20 (when he got half of Haas, then it was AJ Foyt’s #14)
You see what you want to see.

screw the ads
so long as I know what color my team is wearing, and i can see the number of the player that scores, i’m good.
Don’t want a sweater with the sponsor on it, don’t buy one. Just remember, when you want to watch these guys for free on the local telly, the revenue has to come from somewhere… (you ain’t watching the ads during intermission when you’re taking a leak, makin a sammich and grabbing a beer).
After 2 games you’ll never pay attention to it, unless that is your personal devil that you just can’t let go off, at which time i’d say "Charlie Brown, go give Lucy a nickel"

You know hockey cards have advertising on them (the maker) right? Gonna have to squint real hard to see that advertising on the sweater on a damn hockey card, especially when all the kids care about is which player is on it.
Maybe we can get Buff back for a season, if we get him a sweet deal, say 12M, paid for by his own sponsor Mack Trucks.

Catchy! Too bad it’s owned by Airbus and La Belle Provence. That’s enough to gag a maggot right there.
But it sounds Canadian, so wrap yourselves in the flag and jump onboard!
BRP would be a better choice, but it’s 50% owned by Bain Capital… bunch a greedy b@stards right there. Winnipeggers would buy a jersey just for the spectacle of burning it at Portage and Main in outrage.
BDI Jets! Everyone loves Ice Cream! We even have lactose free! And it has year ’round appeal! Nothing makes me think of the Jets in August like a good dose of brain freeze!

3 things guaranteed in life
Death, Taxes, and advertising.
You can create the best gadget known to mankind, but if no one knows about it, who benefits?
So long as the patch on the jerseys isn’t too gaudy in size, meh… is what it is
