    I see Bill O'Brien throwing shade at NLLTV on Twitter.

    I don't know if it was like this when you posted your comment but if you put your mouse over the ribbon of games at the top of the page, the Bandits/Rock and Mammoth/Stealth game say "View" and if you click that, you can watch the games. The Georgia/NE one doesn't have that on it which may be due to the issues they were having as the game aired.

    It's kind of hidden but I happen to have found it by luck. Which isn't good if you're NLLTV.

    I totally forgot how bad the on-demand video quality of NLLTV is. Too bad too, since the Rochester feed was actually rather solid live by Rochester standards.

    Also, the YouTube highlight video quality seems to kinda suck through week 1 also.

    I didn't find the video bad, but I did find the buffering and disconnects bad. I missed at least two goals in the New England game because of that.

    Twitter, on the other hand, seemed flawless.

    I was pretty happy that highlights were a thing this year , but one min long and not including every goal doesn't make sense...

    I get not showing every goal, but I agree that having the videos be only 90 seconds or so is almost pointless. They really should be more like 3-4 minutes long at least, with the length depending on how many goals were scored.

    Well, I do agree. At the same time, 90 second highlight reels are good for TV sports news reporting and encourages being a little more in-depth with the report.

    See, for the local affiliates a highlight reel that short is very appropriate. But for the NLL's official YouTube page? It's barely even an appetizer. It's almost more of an annoyance. I wish that the NLL's YouTube page highlights followed the NHL Network's On The Fly format where they let you get a good feel for the game.

    Leafs produce a "game in 6 minutes" video clip that they share throughout social media. Shows 30s of action around every goal, fight, big hit, whatever.

    These are great if you missed a game you wanted to see.

    Maybe the new guy the NLL recently hired will do something about that.

    So, he's no spring chicken. I like his experience. Sounds like a good hire.
