I get NESN, and the guide says they are covering game 3 - Boston vs Montreal. They even covered the pre-game show, and then they CUT to some useless crap with some fat goggle-wearing stammering idiot, and his sidekick who looks like an Auschwitz survivor, and a 3rd buffoon who looks like Dracula. (I think it says Dennis/Callahan show)
Why the HELL would they block out the game???????????? and show this crap.
Do they want you to pay more MONEY to see it????
IDIOTS ! ! ! ! ! ! !
VS is covering BUF-PHI
Sunshine is covering TAM-PIT
I never dreamed in a million years that NESN would pull this kind of crap.

I feel your pain. Have dealt with this kind of thing from time to time. VERY frustrating and it's all about greed of course. We have Center Ice and why are some games on 4 different channels - 2 regular, 2 in HD, while another game is only on ONE channel NOT in HD. Blockouts are the STUPIDEST thing because why do you want to **** off your local fans?
