Careful What You Wish For

From Greg Wyshinski at Puck Daddy

You want unrestricted access?

Be careful what you wish for.

But the truth is: We don’t really want unrestricted access, do we? HBO’s “24/7”, for all its glory, wasn’t a few episodes of raw footage. It was constructed by editors, probably vetted by the League, and anything that came close to the Simmonds/Avery affair was left on the editing room floor.

(Unless you really believe there was no crossing-the-line trash talk at any of the games HBO covered, which would either be miraculous or an argument for better quality audio equipment.)

The rink is a cesspool of lawlessness and unconscionable behavior that exists solely to gain a competitive advantage. Forgive the Sin City cliché, but in most cases what happens on the ice stays on the ice, or is later avenged on the ice.
