Why was yesterday's game at 6PM? Absolutely ridiculous trying to get to Agganis for a 6 PM game in Boston traffic on a Friday night. I asked two people at the arena why. They both looked at me like I had just dropped him from freaking Mars. 😱

Because of the horrible contract with ASN network. Using NESN announcers but studio group is unwatchable they get 2 games by starting at 6. Did Wisconsin Denver later but NESN did not carry.

TV wanted a double-header with a later game out West.

You can question whether that's worthwhile, but Agganis really mismanaged the change. I feel bad for people who looked at ticket with a 7:30 time and never learned that start had been moved up by 90 minutes. And at the end of the game, it was a clown show getting out of the parking garage: just one exit gate was open and obviously the traffic police hadn't learned of the shift as they were scrambling to get up to Comm Ave long after lots of people had left the building. Those are first-world complaints, I know, but it shouldn't be that hard to get the word out.

So the game was showed on a delayed schedule? Can anyone double confirm? Why on earth start at 6:00 to only show it on tape delay?

Between the first and second periods, clueless studio host asked clueless studio analyst this important question: "Did you expect Michigan to score two goals in the first period?" :rolleyes:

It was delayed on SNY in NY/NJ/CT with a 7:30 start. No Denver-Wisco game.

Studio guys were beauties. "never played at Agganis, but my friends tell me it's awesome" :)

Delayed in MA too. My dad left at the end of the 2nd... Got home to Waltham to turn on to see if he could catch the end of the third, and got to see.... The end of the second!

At least two people in my group didn't know that the game was at 6 pm until...6:15 pm. We all can argue over the 4 pm games, but these 6:00 times are absolutely brutal for everyone involved. It's 100% solely for TV, BU hates them as well. Ticket sales suffered too, every other Michigan game at Agganis over the years has sold out or been virtually sold out, this one wasn't even three-quarters full. Considering both Northeastern and Providence were both much fuller I have to assume were this in the normal 7:30 slot, it'd have been either sold out or nearly sold out. Good luck getting anywhere in Boston at 6:00 on a Friday without leaving at 3:30 or 4:00. Comm Ave was a parking lot outside Agganis before gametime.

Really? Interesting...it was live on DirecTV. Did you watch on cable? Maybe your carrier delayed it?

It was my dad so I'm not 100% sure. He has FIOS... But I don't know what channel. I assumed NESN

Hmmm...so here's the deal. I DVR'd the game. The way DirecT does it is you schedule the show, not the time slot. So I guess it's possible that even though it said "6:00p.m." in the guide, the game actually wasn't on at 6:00 but it recorded anyway because the link was to the program and not the time. Did anyone actually watch it live? Because I can't understand why they would list it at 6:00 if they were going to delay it. It was NESN, because it was Tom Caron and Billy Jaffe. And they promoted the 2nd game (Denver) during the broadcast...I just didn't leave it on long enough to see if it was actually shown.

Either way, I've got to say that if I want to watch a game from the West, I'll either DVR it or stay up and watch it. But I don't agree with moving games in the East to 6:00 (and I get it, TV RULES) and I don't think the execs get it that the number of watchers they actually "gain" is next to nothing. I'm not sure the executives get that with the congestion in the East, many can't get to these games on time. But the SCHOOLS know, so apparently they are not protesting - just taking the money and looking the other way.

No worries, you guys could be down 10-0 entering 3rd and still pull a point out of your ***

Not even kidding when i say i am seriously considering not going to the BC-BU 6 PM game. Might give tix to my dad and just watch the rest on tv when i get home from work at 6 or so.

Not for nothin' but the play McLeod blew that directly led to the 4th Michigan goal was the worst I've seen at Agganis (or anywhere else) this season. Atrocious.
