    Actually, now that I look better, there are three threads, make sure you spank the other guy!

    And what does that have to do with the TV time outs making all of the games even across the country? Especially since the rule pre-dates games being streamed by quite a while.

    You were televised through ESPN3, though.

For instance, a team that isn't as deep has an advantage for TV games, when the non games they had to deal with the players they had. Those 3 min of known stops per period make a big difference WRT rest. Now all the games are the same, regardless.

    I recall that but I never truly bought it since both teams on the ice are playing by the same rule in that game. Teams already play on different rink sizes with which I also have no issue.

    But if the stoppages truly bring revenue into smaller market teams then I am more willing to tolerate them.

The rule was put in place well before streaming was like it is- and it was because games that had TV coverage had timeouts, and others didn't. Which does make the games very different. Some conferences had a lot of TV games, some had almost none- so the rule was to make all the games the same.

    Now it works out to allow advertising.

    ECAC doesn't, with exception to now the 10 minute rule to shovel (they don't do 3 breaks in a period unless it is televised).

    Not all leagues did that. The Big Roll-a-D20 might, and I was a little surprised AHC does. ECAC doesn't, with exception to now the 10 minute rule to shovel (they don't do 3 breaks in a period unless it is televised).

    I think it's the interpretation. A slash to the body is always a penalty. A tap on the stick and the player drops the stick shouldn't be.

    But that's me, not our overlords.
