    If Flo had one-time pay-per-view for a game or weekend, I'd be in. But I object to their policy of auto-renewal until you specifically cancel.
    BTN used to be an auto renewal, but at some point they changed that. My monthly subscription expired and I freaked out a bit since I did not know they got rid of the auto renewal. I very much appreciate this policy. I usually don't subscribe since I see all the women's home games in person and usually most of the men's home games were on some sort of cable channel.

    • I decided "to heck with it" and purchased both BTN+ and FLO early on. It's a little pricy but I think it's been worth it.

        Agreed...It's also been nice to see Hockey East games on CBS Sportsline for free. A bit of a bummer though, that I haven't been able to see toothpaste take on the fighting nurses so many times.

          Hockey Easy games are on CBS Sportline for free? That's cool. I'd like to watch but I barely have enough time to watch the UW men and women play.

            I have been able to see the top teams from Hockey Least (NE, bc, BU, and Providence) so that has been nice. It helps that the start times are an hour earlier here in flyover country plus I have a flexible work schedule.

            • It's a great day for hockey.

              More importantly, it is essential that the ladies go hardcore on the anti Covid front or they will be denied a second straight ncaa opportunity. This popped into my mind because the VB team has shut down due to covid. It would be a shame to throw the opportunity away.

              MJ made some interesting comments about the impact the Fr have had this year. One point that has stuck with me is he said that high scoring HS F's usually don't have to play much D in their own zone and they don't play a lot without the puck on their stick, so that is a big transition for them when they get to college. Put that on top of the disjointed season, being sick with covid and the season being 1/3 in length they haven't had a lot of time to develop these skills they need to. He said usually at the 1/3 pole they sit down and look at the past 3rd of games and game plan for the next 3rd in areas to get better. So he's essentially telling me to take it easy on the Fr. Ok, MJ, I will. Plus let's face it, the schedule has been brutally hard and they have had little opportunity to play weaker teams to have success that breeds success/confidence.

                Much the same as what happened with UW women hockey back in Nov/Dec with Ohio State: VB played Michigan State last weekend, Friday and Saturday, and then Michigan State reported positive tests late Wednesday or early Thursday. Shortly after, UW VB against Nebraska this weekend (a #1 vs #4 matchup) had been cancelled "out of abundance of caution", and then by the end of Thursday UW had positive tests.

                In VB in the COVID era, there is no direct contact between opposing players. They don't 'switch sides' of the court between sets like they normally would, they don't shake hands before or after like they usually would - they rather comically wave to each other from opposite sides of the net. And even though they have people on the sidelines disinfecting the balls as the rotate in and out of the game, there is hand contact with the ball back-and-forth, along with sweating and high-fiving with teammates. The bench players who don't see the court during the match would have even less chance of 'contact' with the other team, but again much high-fiving with players coming off the court; it is completely engrained in VB culture, they couldn't stop it if they tried.

                That they have to miss at least two weekends, particularly vs Nebraska, is a total bummer. If everything goes 'perfectly' they will get to play Northwestern having had literally no practice before the morning of the Friday match. And then they would have a mid-week match vs Minnesota, who IMO are a bigger threat than Nebraska; both Wisconsin and Minnesota were national Final Four teams last year.

                As I said, much like the hockey team, nobody did anything 'wrong", just played the wrong opponent on the wrong day.
