It's not really an away game, so why does the WCHA get the rights and not BTN+. Why not at least both? Huh? I want answers!!! :mad:

Actually, if I am not mistaken, these are technically home games for NMU. They get the gate (and TV rights). They just know that they will make more $$ if the games are in Green Bay, than if they are in Marquette.

Ok. I want DIFFERENT answers! :mad:

Thing is, if I send the WCHA 9 or 18 bucks, I'm really just encouraging this sort of behavior. Yet, I probably want to watch the games.

It's a conundrum.

It would be nice for it to fell like a home game. Last year the crowd experience sucked.

I have hatched a brilliant plan to offset the cost of streaming this weekend's games:

Everyone not going GB just come over to my house for drinks by the pool* followed by the Badgers vs. NMU on the big screen both nights! Only $2 at the door!**


*BYOB

** Airfare, ground transportation, and accommodations not included. Some surcharges may apply.

Can you just periscope the event from your house?

Sad how technology knowledge dropped in the state of Wisconsin when I left...

All my neighbors in Florida basically came to your house during Irma and did they complain?

(Well, actually--yes, they did, but that's beside the point.)

Stop being so cheap. You can probably fly direct down here for a couple hundred bucks.*


*$2.00 Cover charge not included. Other surcharges will apply.

For everyone else, Rockford to Punta Gorda is cheap and direct. Book now! Only 4 seats left at this price!

I for one am shocked, SHOCKED I tell you! --at the apparent lack of enthusiasm displayed thus far by members of this board for traveling 1600 miles at your own expense to watch what will probably be a very shaky feed of Badger Men's Hockey. Where's the team spirit?! Where's the pride?!

And most importantly --> Where's my nine dollars for the game fee?!! <--

Fine. I was saving this, but I will even sweeten the deal with a coupon good for $1 off a Moe's Southwest Grill Homewrecker Burrito for the first 6 bookings!

Ready, set, Go!

I was all set to pull the trigger on it until you got all crazy about it. Now forget your coupon. I'll just listen to the radio feed instead.

Man, that just hurts.

Perhaps I should have been more clear, (although I thought my having a submarine would be clue enough) I live on the Gulf of Mexico in SW Florida.

You can actually get here non-stop via not going to Madison.

But fine....

Great News! I've completely solved the whole airfare to Florida thing that seems to be a snag in my plan.

Turns out you don't actually have to BE here... You all can just send me money! Problem solved! Hooray!



On another front, Since Tony changes the lines every day, I'm again curious to see what today will bring. Will Zimmer-Ford-Freytag stay together? How many more combos are there while still keeping Frederic-Wagner and Malone-Johnson together? Inquiring minds want to know!

Ooooh, sorry, I would send you money, but I'll be taking a very expensive trip (i.e. leisurely stroll) to LaBahn Arena tonight instead. That's really too bad.

Wow...I mean I offer an all inclusive* weekend in beautiful SWFL with Badger hockey and my exclusive company for only $2.

But noooo Wisko, that's not good enough!

Ok, fine. No worries... I come up with a even more brillianter plan that literally saves you guys hundreds, in fact, almost certainly, thousands of dollars! (accounting for all the surcharges)

And this is the thanks I get????


Ingrates! The lot of ya!

Fine. I don't need you guys and your $2. There are dozens of convenience stores around I can just knock over. This is Florida. Nobody even notices.


Win or lose tonight -- doesn't matter -- I just hope the boys have good jump and we can start building some consistency.

Lastly, I was lying about the "doesn't matter" part. And the lose part. Just WIN BABY!!
