Hotstove Talks Winter Classic

from CBC,

Hockey Night in Canada’s Hotstove Panel added their thoughts on the future of the outdoor game, after Hockey Night in Canada analyst Elliotte Friedman shared that the event has generated interest as far south as Dallas.

Jerry Jones, owner of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys, has expressed interest in hosting the NHL’s Winter Classic at the new Cowboys stadium, Friedman said.

“It would be a huge financial windfall, but of course, it wouldn’t be a true Winter Classic,” said Friedman.

The latest Winter Classic matchup, between the Boston Bruins and Philadelphia Flyers at Fenway Park on New Year’s Day, was widely acclaimed as the best in the event’s three-year history.

Major networks and the NHL are now more excited about the Winter Classic than the Stanley Cup playoffs, said host Ron MacLean.

Canada Deserves A Winter Classic Game

from Chris Zelkovich of the Toronto Star,

Friday’s NHL outdoor game at Fenway Park is creating a fair bit of excitement around the CBC.

But as much as Hockey Night In Canada executive producer Sherali Najak is looking forward to using his Green Monster camera and capturing the history of the first NHL game played in the house that Ted Williams built, there’s one thing that would make it even better for him and the CBC: another game in Canada.

“That would make a huge difference for us,” Najak says, recalling the initial outdoor game in Edmonton. “The buzz on Canadian soil is always more special for Canadian fans.

“Hockey is our game and people will watch regardless. But when you take over an NHL city with an outdoor game, it’s something special.

“I think the country deserves a game here.”

CBC Stands Behind Cherry

from William Houston of Truth & Rumours,

An apology from Don Cherry for telling a Toronto radio reporter to “f-off” during a profanity laced tirade on Sunday is highly unlikely.

  Scott Moore, the head of CBC Sports, says Cherry is not to blame for the incident and in fact was incited by the reporter who was overly aggressive.

  “I think the apology should go the other way,” Moore said in an email.

  Moore went on CFRB radio in Toronto today at noon and stated the network is throwing its full support behind Cherry. Moreover, sources confirmed there will be no apology from Hockey Night In Canada commentator.

I Have To Ask Why?

Last night I stayed up late to watch the Kings/Canucks game, all in SD (standard definition) and have to ask why?

I am now watching the same game on the NHL Network in glorious HD along with 7.1 surround sound.

I have also noticed a lot of complaints from hockey fans lately who state games are listed as HD on Center Ice but they are not getting the game in HD.  I too have noticed and have to ask why?

If you can’t be at the game, the next best thing is to watch a hockey broadcast in HD.

I also know sometimes carriers have bandwidth issues and don’t broadcast in HD, then if that is the issue, it should not be listed on Center Ice as HD.  Correct?

Caught On Tape

Earlier today I pointed to a story on Don Cherry responding to negative remarks made about him.

Now, William Houston of Truth & Rumours has more,

Scott Moore, the head of CBC Sports and advertising sales, is expected on appear on at least one Toronto radio station today doing damage control.

  My guess is Cherry, through the CBC, will issue an apology later today to the reporter and the public.
