Afternoon Line -Rear Admiral On ESPN

Even allowing for the dopey blackouts to protect some shitty RSN's interests while shutting out NHL fans in Montana, Idaho, and other places that are nowhere near an NHL city, how the f*** was Edmonton @ Boston last night only available via streaming on ESPN+ ? Seriously, what is the logic here? It's ESPN's 'Hockey Night' with a dream regular season match-up and cable/satellite subscribers were unable to watch because it was not being shown on television. Make it make sense.

-Rear Admiral of Bar Stool Sports has more on this topic.


Here again we see why I have NONE qualms about using grey-market streaming. 


Tough to disagree. It’s like solving a goddamn mystery about how to view each game, and why am I paying for ESPN+, directv, and Hulu and sometimes none of it even works? Maddening.

I was at my friends to watch the Hawks vs Red Wings Wednesday and the game was on Hulu that carries TNT. During the first period Hulu lost its brain and the stream cut out. Much swearing was involved as we tried to reboot and get the game back while the screen said “loading” or it popped up a “we are having problems with this game right now” message. 
The league is run by idiots.

We did get the game back on after about 10 minutes of being pissed off.
