Here’s the thing—Ads on jerseys are coming, we can’t avoid that. And frankly, it’s not going to take anything away from the experience of watching NHL hockey. If every team has a small patch on the upper right or left chest or down by the hips, it’s not a big deal. Most of us won’t even notice it after a game or two. Plus, if it’s more revenue for the teams/league, that could lead to a higher salary cap and more room to play with roster-wise.

Take MLS for example. People wearing freaking Quaker jerseys. Took me 2 years to figure out it meant Chicago Fire.

We all know it is coming in the not to distant future, but Bettman saying something like this just leaves a sour taste in my mouth.

He will call the patches sponsorship and not advertising to correct his words from today.

In other words, we couldn’t find anyone to pay the ridiculous sponsorship fees we are asking for because our USA tv ratings are horrendous.

Greedy little prick will implement this before addressing CONCUSSIONS because it puts $$$$ in every ones pockets.

I know when I’m thinking about history and tradition in regards to the NHL the first name that pops in my head is always Gary Bettman.  tongue rolleye

Read the quote boys,
“I am a believer in the history, tradition and exactly how special NHL sweaters are.”
Does he outright say there will be no advertising?  No, he does not.  Weasel.
