Niners To Play 2 Upcoming Home Games In Arizona

(AP/CBS13) — The San Francisco 49ers will play two home games in Arizona after new coronavirus regulations put in place by Santa Clara County officials forced the team to find a temporary new home. The 49ers (5-6) will host the Buffalo Bills next Monday night and Washington on Dec. 13 at State Farm Stadium, home of the Arizona Cardinals, because they won’t be able to practice or play games in their home in Santa Clara County for three weeks. The team said it will have information on practice arr...

Have We Been Here Before?

from Kevin McGran of the Toronto Star, There have been no serious negotiations between NHL commissioner Gary Bettman and NHL Players Association executive director Donald Fehr for more than a week. The last time they talked, the league basically asked to reopen the just-signed extension to the collective bargaining agreement by asking for $300 million more in concessions from the players in order to play some kind of season in 2021. Nothing since. U.S. Thanksgiving might have ...

Alexander: It turns out Pandemic Sports wasn’t as simple as we thought

We became complacent, didn’t we? We saw the NBA operate successfully in a bubble for three months. We saw Major League Baseball weather an early rash of COVID infections and not only play all but a handful of its scheduled games but get to the eighth inning of the final game of the season before its postseason bubble was pierced. Surely, expanded testing and stringent protocols even without the benefit of bubbles would enable the NFL and college football and basketball to roll through the advers...

How Much Did Alberta Give The NHL For Advertising During The Stanley Cup Final?

from Alex Antoneshyn of CTV Alberta, Alberta paid $4 million to National Hockey League Canada to advertise during the Stanley Cup Finals in its capital city. The contract between Alberta Communications and Public Engagement (CPE) and the NHL ran from July 1 to Oct. 1. “The NHL playoffs taking place in the Edmonton 'bubble,' including the Stanley Cup Finals, was a major opportunity to showcase all Alberta has to offer to millions of viewers outside our province. The contrac...

Notes On Our Game

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun, - NHL commissioner Gary Bettman is adamant there will be a hockey season. It has become personal for him with ownership divided on whether or not to go forward. The questions now are, how long will the season be and when will it begin? … And, still, there’s no deal with the players, who are being asked to give more money back after agreeing to and signing off on a salary clawback in July. The threat for players now is the possibility of no money for ...

49ers Can’t Practice, Play At Home For 3 Weeks Under New Santa Clara COVID Restrictions

SANTA CLARA (AP/CBS13) – The San Francisco 49ers may need to find a temporary new home after Santa Clara County on Saturday banned all contact sports from holding games and practices for the next three weeks. County officials issued the directives in response to rising cases of the coronavirus in the area. The rules take effect Monday and will last until Dec 21.

The View From Both Sides

from Eric Macramalla at Forbes, Requesting amendments to a ratified agreement is a big deal and the NHL knows that. So to approach the Union for further concessions means the league is seeing something new and material that requires urgent attention. Indeed, the NHL believes that its financial assumptions have so dramatically changed such that this coming season is no longer financially viable within the four corners of the existing framework. So what has changed for the league? It’s ...

More Women Needed In The NHL

from Matt Porter of the Boston Globe, While other sports, slowly but surely, are putting women on the sidelines or in the big chair in the front offices, hockey has been a bit slower to include. There has, however, a spate of hires in the last few years. Taking stock of the NHL from a gender diversity perspective: ▪ The most visible of women in US hockey has been former Northeastern star Kendall Coyne Schofield, who blazed a lap around the rink at NHL All-Star Weekend in San Jose in 2...

Ask Seattle To Pay Ahead For Immediate Relief

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, If the NHL needs another $300 million in order to proceed with the 2020-21 season, and that is essentially what Sixth Avenue has represented to the NHLPA, why don’t Gary Bettman, Bill Daly and the Board simply ask Seattle to advance up to half of the $650 million expansion fee that is currently due before the Kraken’s inaugural 2021-22? Wouldn’t that take care of it, and more appropriately, than the owners approaching the players with hands out ...

Tops Draft Picks For 2021

Checking In on the Big Ten

Two-and-a-half weeks into the season, the Big Ten has emerged as one of the victors in this strange season. Whether it has been the league’s rigorous testing protocol or just dumb luck, the league has now managed to play 12 games without a cancellation; a remarkable achievement given the cancellation rate for the rest of college hockey is hovering above 50% at the moment and those Big Ten games have been played in states where case numbers have surpassed the CDC’s previous worst possib...

What Side Will Blink First?

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun, We don’t know if that will be the NHL commissioner Gary Bettman or NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr, but the clock is ticking and the sense is if a season is to begin Jan. 1, then a deal has to in place by Tuesday. The word is that during a conference call last week, the players told Fehr not to pick up the phone or budge on the union’s position and, as a result, there’s been nothing but silence between the two sides. The players aren’t h...

Videos- The Boston Gardens In Table Hockey Form

from Darcy Seaton of CTV News, Trent Buhler is crazy about his Boston Bruins… and a fan of old sports venues. “I’ve been to some of the old greats but I never actually got to Boston until it was gone,” said Buhler. That led to a project he started more than two years ago. Buhler decided to turn a table hockey game into a replica of one the NHL’s most famous arenas – the iconic Boston Garden. “It borders on insanity for sure but it's definitely a labour of love,” said B...

KK- Relax Mode

I am officially in kick back mode or get ready for Thanksgiving on Thursday when I will be hosting a few friends. I am in charge of the deep-fried cajun turkey, mashed potatoes and the stuffing. Since my close family no longer lives in the area, I appointed myself as the patriarch of friends for the day.

One Big Reason To Play This Season

from Kevin McGran of the Toronto Star, If there is a motivating factor for both the NHL and its players to get this season underway, it’s money. The NHL is heading into the final season of a 10-year contract that gave NBC and its cable partners national broadcasting and digital rights in the United States. It amounted to $200 million (U.S.) a year. There’s a pot of broadcast gold waiting at the expiration of this contract. If the season is played, the NHL could enter into new lucr...

A More Realistic Start Date

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, The lack of progress over the last five days in crafting protocols for 2020-21 would seem to jeopardize the NHL’s targeted Jan. 1 puck drop on a hypothetical 60-game regular season. Indeed, a 48-game season beginning the third week of January appears the more likely objective. The 1994-95 lockout season began Jan. 20 while the 2012-13 lockout year opened Jan. 19. The parties must agree on health and safety protocols outside of a bubble. With...
