Personally, I'm cool with the NFL being complemented by the AFL. It's different enough from the NFL product without being too gimmicky. Plus, if there was really more demand for football in fall/winter than supply, wouldn't people just watch the CFL?
They are on TV. Versus (the new television sports network) covers most of them and CBS or NBC is covering the finals along with Versus. I imagine that if you had a local team, you could watch them on your local channels. I love the Blackhawks, but they haven't been worth a crap since the early 90's. My 2nd team is Anaheim, so it's not like I can catch many regular season games. Versus covered the playoffs extremely well, though. Playoff hockey this year was nothing short of incredible.

The NHL has a horrible marketing crew. For instance, the ONLY size jersey you can buy is an XL and they cost right around $100.00. Now, I understand that jerseys are supposed to be big, but I could NEVER even come close to fitting in an extra large. I'm not paying $100.00 for a bed sheet. Unfortunately, that's all they offer unless you buy childrens-sized jerseys. They need a new campaign or something. Because, beside myself, I only know two other guys in the state that give a crap about hockey. One of them didn't even watch a game all season.

It's pathetic. And, all these people thinking about going against the NFL should really take this into consideration.

Yeah, I know. It was a poor attempt at being funny.

Excuse me for getting off the subject, but I was living in Tampa when the Lightning won the Cup. My first live hockey game was the first game of the eastern conference finals against the flyers. I was immediately hooked and watched every minute of every game for the rest of the playoffs. The NHL had made a fan out of a dyed in the wool SEC football lovin' Mississippi boy who's never worn skates. I couldn't wait for the next season...and it didn't come. After the strike, I swore off hockey (like a lot of fans) and moved on to soccer.

I just hope athletes and owners in other leagues see what happened to hockey and before that, baseball. Could you imagine an NFL strike? I would go insane! And the NBA would be finished if they striked (struck?).

I want to get behind the VooDoo and support our local teams, but Arena Football is too painful to watch. It's garbage... probably only fun if you're playing. I can't watch an entire game. Maybe I'm just ignorant?
