Let’s just start our own ******* league.
that must be thr improved online presence that Nicky Sak was talking about.
like, seriously, a student chapter at a third rate community college is run more professionally than this place sometimes
Now when you try to purchase the NLL Monthly Pass on BRLive you're greeted with a "This event is not available for purchase at this time. Please try again later." message. How odd since it was working fine yesterday.
Way to grow the game NLL. You never ******* learn.
NLL - day late and a dollar short since 1998.
Crazy to think how it felt like the NLL was on the verge of huge things in 2005 when games were broadcast on NBC. In hindsight, that was the peak and glory days of this league. I hate to sound like a cynical and crotchety chap, but I do feel sorry for new fans who didn’t experience the days of 1999-2006ish. To me, those were *the* years to be an NLL fan.
Trying to limit the refunds they have to issue when they cancel the season in 2 weeks?
it's funny to reflect and realize that having Jennings at the helm was the high point.
I actually think he came closer than anyone before or since to actually making this sport almost major. in some ways I feel he was a victim of circumstance and bad luck/ timing as well.
Sounds about right. It would figure the first time I get season tickets to support my local team the season gets cancelled. (probably)
I think we're still a number of weeks away from the NLL cancelling the entire season. The rumor from Steve Bermel was that the date to come to an agreement for the season to go as scheduled is sometime between Nov. 10-15. And probably for every week after that if there's no agreement in place, another week gets lopped off the schedule.
The target to cancel the season outright could be as late as Jan. 1 where they could still have a season but chop it down it 8-10 weeks and re-write the schedule. The question is how deep do the players want to dig in to risk losing an entire season.
This. The players already have other jobs, so it's not like other sports where most of them are rich enough to be able to afford a year-long sabbatical to fight for their perspective.
I think many of the elite players will lose a sizeable chunk of dollars.
I think many of the journeymen will lose a nifty bit of pocket money.
More than the money, the one thing that they are all losing is opportunity. Your body only gives you so many years where you have the potential to be a senior men's pro athlete.
A strike or lockout takes one of those years away from you.....and maybe torpedoes a few fledgling and struggling franchises, so, when the dust settles, there are fewer jobs to go around.
Here is an email I got directly from the league regarding signing up for NLLTV---
Users can signup for a B/R Live account and then purchase the subscriptions they desire. The users who have purchased already will be ported in and sent an email with further directions ahead of the season. The platform is currently rolling our in Canada and the same process will follow.
NLL TV Also now will direct you straight to the main page. Seems like it is B/R Live or nothing for coverage.
I am bit concerned about BRlive after the debacle they had on Friday for the Woods-Mickelson ppv match. People who bought the match had trouble purchasing the feed and BRLive eventually made it free during the event.
You would figure with how much they hyped the event, that BRLive would not have had this issue. Now with the NLL, my hunch is that BRLive doesn't care too much and access may be hit and miss at least to start the the season.
I read the linked article and a couple of others. It sounds like the technical problem was with way too many people waiting until the last minute to try to buy it and overloading the subscription service. There wasn't any problem streaming it out to everyone.
I'm sure this is a lesson learned for B/R and is unlikely to be repeated. Also, NLL subs aren't going to come anywhere near Woods-Mickelson numbers (as sad as that sounds). Either way, I'll make sure to have purchased my sub a few days before the first games.
I guess I shouldnt be surprised that so many people would pay to watch that on Thanksgiving Fri. Night. Both have huge cadres of fans. All.the women crashed early after their super bowl. And the only thing on was some rivalry college football games
I got an email today from BR Live with my NLLtv subscription coupon code. I easily signed up and I'm now ready to go for the full season.
Apparently there's a bug that's not allowing Canadian fans to submit their coupon code. B/R is working on it.
I got that email too, but after I had already submitted my code successfully.
Has anyone tried using the Canadian code? I have been waiting for another email say that they fixed the bug
