  1. I say give the new girl a break. On the other hand, as for the Canes, they aren't new to the game or the job, it's not their first time, they stunk Sat night. No excuses imo, they ALL should have been playing/practicing when they could. Here's hoping they got their butts handed to them after that showing and Tues night will be different.
  2. I lived in Columbia/Lexington awhile ago and TW sucked then to. Now I live in VA and Cox sucks the same. Can't help you with that. As for which team is your "home/blackout" team per CI/GC, they each have a place on their sites to put in your zipcode (look under "help") and it will tell you which is your home/blackout team. Doesn't matter what you think "should be", matters what they think. I live apporx. halfway between the Canes and the Caps, thank god my blackout team is the Caps. It's all stupid imo, we're paying to watch the games, we should be able to watch who we want, sellout or not. For me, I'm not going to drive ~3-4 hours and buy a ticket just because it's not sold out and I can't watch it on tv. When I can go, I do, has no bearing on ticket sales/blackouts.
  3. Bring on Tues night, forget about Sat night!

      Yah....that didn't go too well

  4. Being an out-of-marketer I can't speak for much of any of it, I'm at the mercy of what gets shown on CI/GC and for the most part it ain't much when it comes to anything but the actual game itself. No pre-game, no post-game, not much in between either, even commercials sometimes as we get the "privilege" of listening to that gawd awful "music" instead. Yeah, I actually sometimes enjoy watching out-of-market ads, even though that Kangaroo ad with Victoria and the other Storm Squad girl used to make me cringe (no offense girls - love ya all - you all rock!! ) But let me try to put it into perspective for the lucky folks who get to watch all the extra stuff, I think I'd rather watch Chantel fumble her way through (hopefully) first game nerves than not have the option to see any of it at all.
  5. Welcome from across the pond!! Love your av! I'll trade you a US hockey game for a Euro "football" game someday.
  6. Mods, if this isn't the right place to post this please move. This is a followup to something I posted in the GDT last night (sorry - that probably wasn't the best place to post and I've since deleted it, but I was totally frustrated at the time, and being new I can't start a new thread yet). Cox and CI didn't show the game here in Virginia (channel 673 had the notice "to subsrcibe please call blah blah blah..."), I called Cox and they said it was blacked out. Our blackout team is the Caps, not the Canes, but whatever, I was talking to Cox "support". I hate CI anyway and wasn't going to pay for it this season. So I signed up for Game Center which I was planning on doing anyway after the free previews of CI ended. Got to watch into 1st period intermission, than GC died and I could never get back in. It kept loading and loading and loading and loading... Wonderful way to start the season, thankfully it looks like I didn't want to watch the game anyway. Since we can't get Fox Sports here I'm screwed. Wondering if anyone else had issues getting the game outside of a direct feed of Fox Sports via cable or sat? Any suggestions appreciated.
  7. Thanks for the VA welcome!

  9. Thanks for the welcome. And thanks to the admin who finally got my account working!!
  10. Glad to see it wasn't just me who had problems (although sorry to see any of us had problems). I received the email with the discount code and link, but when I tried to buy my ticket I got an error saying the order could not be processed (nothing wrong with credit card). Tried again and got another error message saying there was already a payment pending on my account. Tried several more times with no luck, kept getting the same two error messages. Logged into my Ticketmaster account and there was no record of an order. Tried calling Canes Sales and after more than 90 minutes on hold I gave up and called Ticketmaster. Explained to them what was going on and they looked and couldn't find an order either. Transferred me to someone else who took my discount code and found me a ticket, but the discount didn't come out to 50% off the base ticket price, it was more like 45% and after they tacked on their ~$12 service fee PLUS taxes the ticket was almost normal price. Kind of disappointing the way it went down, but still happy to be able to see a game anyway. Let's Go Canes!!!
  11. Hey Gang, New to the forum, not to the Canes. Can't wait til Tuesday night, sounds like we'll have a great crowd. Having pre game food and bev across the street at BB before the game. Come say hey!
