NHL  > General NHL  > VERSUS is awful
April 10, 2009, 08:25 PM
I love how there has been some great games with serious playoff implications lately but Versus still doesn't even show hockey most nights. They're still showing MMA fights for 2005 most nights and when they finally do show a game they show Colorado (a team that's already eliminated vs. San Jose (a team that pretty much has the 1 seed locked up). That's how you market the NHL. Don't show playoff atmosphere type games where both teams are fighting for a spot or at least positioning. The best way to gain a bigger and better fan base is to either not show games at all or show games that nobody cares about. It's such a shame that such a great sport gets crapped on so much due to awful marketing.
