I present to you the latest columnist to jump on the whine wagon during the 2007 NHL playoffs.
Dan O'Neill of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:
Hockey is a tough sell on television. But try selling network execs on tight-checking games that might last 2 1/2 hours, might last all night. They'd rather show "Gunsmoke" reruns. The NHL should not try to tailor its game for television — this isn't the NFL. But if a change makes the game more accessible and more dynamic to the casual audience, the tail wags the dog.
How many times can a columnist contradict himself in one paragraph? O'Neill's going for the record, it seems.
Dude, shut up.
