NHL  > General NHL  > Can Versus possibly be any worse?
June 3, 2009, 11:12 AM
Hockey is in my opinion the best sport in the world and it's being ruined by the NHL and Versus. Only die-hard fans will watch the NHL because the coverage on Versus makes me actually throw up in my mouth a little sometimes. First of all, they don't even have a post game show after game 3 of THE STANLEY CUP FINALS!! They went directly to Sports Soup? I thought they were joking when they said they were going to Sports Soup right after the game. Then there is the awful camera work. Numerous times during every game something important will be happening right when, instead of showing where the puck is, they will just randomly zoom the camera in on a goaltender that made a save 2 minutes prior that isn't even seeing any action at the time. The only thing that may be worse than all this is their analysts. It seems like every game they pick one team whose nuts they want to hang on and then broadcast the game as if the other team is completely getting screwed. The intermission report is also an absolute joke. Keith Jones has no business being a "professional hockey analyst". I think he's predicted like 3 playoff series' correct this entire Stanley Cup playoffs. Are there any other sports that have half as bad marketing and television as the NHL?
