Afternoon Line- David Shoalts

After 2 days talking to Rogers employees about Ron MacLean and other changes coming (on Monday, they think) one thing was loud and clear.

In hockey dept., morale could not be any worse. I knew it wasn't great but depth of despair among some surprised me. They expect the worst.

I love it.

As much as I hate this awful, awful Rogers deal, I love that this is happening to them.  Under any other entity this deal would’ve been a license to print money.  Only Rogers could f*ck this up so completely.

Anyone that thinks this is about Rogers is nuts. All seven Canadian teams flopped and too many regular season games are lacking in action and excitement. Coaches and systems and shot blocking have choked the life out of the game. The NBA and NFL figured out that scoring and stars sell. The NHL thinks that shot blocking sells and Major League Baseball thinks that 3 1/2 hour games and a nonstop parade of middle relievers sell. Two leagues that get it and two that don’t.
