There is a new webstream link.  There is a new webstream link.  There is a new webstream link.  I wasn't sure if repetitiveness or bolding was more effective; so you got both.  There it is above.  I have no real answers about it other than to say the intent here is to provide a better quality product.  I've looked at a sample stream from NMTV and it looks pretty good.  My only advice to anyone wanting streaming web content to work ... make sure you have enough bandwidth.

The chat room is below.  Once again the only person willing to take on the moderation responsibilities is BBEF.  I've asked and asked that some UAA fan take this on and have had no takers.  So this weekend is the last home weekend where I'll utlilize the chat room here on the blog.  I'll still host during road series but I'm seeing no benefit to anyone during home games.  Participation seems to be dropping like zombies in a post-apocalyptic horror movie.  So unless I hear some crying from the wilderness consider this the last home weekend with chat.

do we know if the video is still free?

I'm assuming it is. The page asks you to put in a zip code is all. My guess is they're tracking who is actually using the feed so they can determine whether to charge for it next year. If most of the users are from the opposition hometown then they probably ought to charge for it.

Have you stopped sending questions to the coaches?

Despite BBEF's wrong minded tiggie infatuation, it is nice to be able to continue a little hockey talk after the games in the central or mountain time zone end.

And I cheer for the Seawolves unless they are playing the Pioneers.

Donald Dunlop said...

Yes BBEF, I have stopped sending questions. The complete lack of response being the driving factor in suspending that effort.

BBEF said...

I enjoyed reading them...So...there's that.

Has anyone tried the Ticketmaster site for the deal tonight? I've been trying it all day, but for some reason it doesn't seem to be working. :-(

BBEF said...

You usually have to book 24hrs in advance for Tickets West - not sure about Ticketmaster.

Worked fine for me this morning, used code UAA.

I must say that I was impressed for much of the night with the Seawolves' play - clean, hard and disciplined. They probably deserved a better result. The Pioneers took over the last 12 minutes of the game as good teams do, and got the result they needed at the end.

Tommy Grant is probably the most underrated player in the league. And was also impressed with Bailey's work down low.
