Blackhawks....hmmmmmm...

some good may come of that a-holes death.....

Report: Hawks To Televise Home Games

CHICAGO (WBBM) -- A published report indicates the Chicago Blackhawks are in talks with Comcast SportsNet to begin televising home games, maybe even as early as this season.

According to the Chicago Tribune, new chairman Rocky Wirtz -- named head of the Hawks following the death of his father, Bill Wirtz last month --told employees in a memo the Blackhawks met with Comcast executives last week "to begin discussions about getting some home games back on television this hockey season."

Rocky Wirtz's decision is in direct conflict with the hard-nosed stance his father took. Bill Wirtz refused to televise Hawks home games because he said in part it would hurt game attendance and it was unfair to season ticket holders.

"When in doubt, use full throttle. It may not improve your situation, but it will end the suspense."

What crack was he smoking? So, instead new fans are not gained by limiting exposure. And season tickets holders are AT THE GAME, not home watching it on TV. LOL
