      I guess I missed something. What was the issue with Belarus?

          Pretty much everything. It's a client state of Czar Vladimir I's new Russian Empire.

              The Politico article also leaves out that the president of Belarus' hockey federation was banned from entering Latvia due to sanctions and he's currently under investigation by the IIHF for the involvement in the killing of a protester. And not as in he ordered it. As in he my have committed the actual murder.

              It's probably best to host everything in one location anyway given Covid.

                Yeah this is probably the biggest thing that contributed to the sponsors threatening to pull out. Skoda (aka VW) was likely the biggest threat, they've been a lead IIHF sponsor for decades.

                        Oh yeah. I forgot that was Belarus.

                          NBC has told distributors and some sports leagues that it plans to shut down its NBCSN sports channel by the end of the year. Story coming in SBD

                            Isn’t the US TV contract up soon, like after this season or next?

                            I’ve heard the NHL wants to get away from NBC.

                              I heard just the opposite: that NBC could not wait to dump the N.

                              Isn't NBCSN folding or something? Everything Bettman touches dies?

                              Edit: 1 post lower down. LOL, I am very attentive...

                                ESPN has been rumored to want it back, and Buccigross has been dropping a lot of hints on Twitter.

                                So ESPN will have NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, NCAA everything, three tennis majors, and basically every non PL soccer league.

                                NBC will have NFL, Notre Dame football, Premier League, NASCAR, horse racing, golf, and the French Open.
