It is and I don't think it's much of a surprise either. NBC or whoever has the rights to the Olympics pretty much dedicates their sports networks in primetime to the Games anyway.


It's like two weeks long. I think they'll be ok.


The NHL makes exactly the same amount of money from NBC no matter how many games they broadcast. 2 weeks dark doesn’t dent the exposure of the league. The league loses absolutely nothing from this.


To be fair to NBC, the timezone difference between America and South Korea means there'll be Olympics events happening during US primetime and Late night so both NBC and NBCSN (let alone the other networks like CNBC and USA that will probably be used) simply won't have room in the schedule to show NHL games on NBCUniversal networks

booz, I was planning to go to South Korea for this, the XXIII Olympic Winter Games, alas it looks like I won't be going because of the lack of NHL players playing. If I want to go see some shitbag nhl burnouts, I'll just go down to the ahl game down the road.

There's a great pond on Caldwell Rd in between Eastern Passage and Cole Harbour. Give donnie and the boys from channel 10 a bag of hash and they'll put it on tv.

Hmm... I never considered it, but I suppose now that Alan Eagleson is out of prison anything is possible.

Looks like they got wise to it:

The forums are currently turned off for migration. We'll be back ASAP.


You just can't beat parasites like these.

What a fucking disaster. Their search function doesn't work properly and if you try to go to the prior link of a thread it bounces you to the subforum.

I love how they're closing every thread about this topic of the new forums, and the lounge is only open to some people. "Troublemakers" excluded.

My password doesn't work anymore, and the e-mail address my account was attached to is long gone.

Not that I'm upset, the new format looks just fucking terrible. I stopped coming here with the format switch, but dear god there is so much worse.

The change caught me by surprise too. Luckily I kept the same e-mail though. Dropped by here to see how things were going and it seems fairly quiet. I don't come here often enough. A lot of good posters here with a keen sense of humour.

I will say, I don't know what's going on.
But you already knew that.
I haven't been at HF for a long while.
Must be six years.
Around that time I did a recruitment operation using the bytown boozers spare account.
Percy Leducer or something like that was the handle.
May have picked up a few users here that day.
But she went down in flames and was a banning in store for poor Percy.
Is Gee Wally still alive?
We had good times at that place.
Some guy named Newfie Jesus showed me how to use this new invention called the Internet.
We were pals I think.
Lots of good times there I recollect.
Thems, thems were the times.
I have reproduced now life is much different.
I write this letter in near total darkness and silence while the wife tries to get this baby who hates to sleep, sleep.
I miss Alberta Yote and can't believe he was a bank manager.
I wish he was my bank manager, we'd both be in jail.
I just went over to HF.
That site keeps getting incredibly cheaper looking.
It's like it's going back in time.
Using worse and worse technology and platforms.
Are they still owned by a porn site?
Maybe a porn site will buy this place.
That would be pretty cool.
Anyway, good greetings to all and to all a goodnight.
I can't believe you read to this line.
Was sveiglar an alt account?
Don't tell me my heart can't take it.

It is being reported that JT Brown is considering taking a knee in support of the views of the NFL. Let me make this perfectly clear. I am a retired USN Vet who has had family give everything so these high priced athletes can get paid rather well to play a game. If Brown opts to take a knee, I will no longer support him. If and when he comes down to Syracuse, he will be the subject of a lot of heckling and taunting the likes of which have not been seen in this city since the days of PJ Stock and NEVER against a home team player. If the Tampa Bay management supports him, I am done with the Lightning as well. Athletes are entertainers who should leave the politics to our so called politicians. Say what you want about Syracuse, we support our military and understands what it means to stand for the National Anthem. Perhaps if any of these individuals care to switch places with a member of our military and do a tour in country they would understand the significance of what honoring the National Anthem and what it means to the families of those who gave all.

The American soldiers should get the respect of the public the same way athletes do: by winning something.

http://hfboards.mandatory.com/threads/b ... s.2401283/

I was browsing this ad/filth infested forum & it hijacked my browser - it also deleted all my passwords on LastPass somehow before printing random things (had to stop it all). I'm doing a full malware/virus scan just in case, I've also noticed my browser's been a lot slower than usual lately (every since a couple of weeks)... I can also confirm that this website is constantly downloading and uploading stuff (my bandwidth on this web is completely out of whack). I've tried to do whatever I was told on the Support subforum, but after this hijack - I most certainly don't feel comfortable anymore.

I'm on my mobile posting this. I might drop by from my mobile from time to time, but I'm extra cautious. I urge everyone to take precaution.
