FSN Pittsburgh Screws The Flyers, Pulls A Wanndstedt

FSN Pittsburgh is being investigated for use, or lack thereof,
of their available camera angles during last week’s 7-4 Flyers win.

Simon Gagne’s goal was called off, despite the availability
of a camera angle that showed the puck CLEARLY over the line.  FSN refused to send that video feed to NHL
Headquarters in Toronto, or show the play on their air.  No doubt, the producer for FSN likely had a
mustache and resembled Dave Wannstedt, the way all Pittsburgh people do.  

Wannstedt

CSN, who was broadcasting the game for the Flyers,
was using the FSN video feed and did not have the option of sending the feed to
Toronto.

This brings up an interesting question, do road teams not
have their own cameramen?  It was always
my understanding that road teams brought their own cameramen for local
broadcasts to road games.  I think this
is the case with the Phillies, as you will routinely see announcers mention
cameramen, and then see them wave back.  It
may not seem like a big deal, as during good broadcasts it happens seamlessly,
but you will hear announcers mention something and then the camera pan to that
person, location, object etc.  Perhaps on road games, the announcers are at
the mercy of what is on the screen?  Something
I will have to take notice of.

Either way, fuck Pittsburgh. 
They have been kicking our ass in hockey for three years, and now they
can’t even let us have our own goal?  F
off, Dave Wannstedt.

From now on, when someone screws Philadelphia sports, we're going to refer to them as "Pulling a Wannstedt."

    Penguins are notorious for cheating to get a win, it’s really sad.
    Crosby dives all over the place to get a penalty
    He then cries like a little baby whenever he gets hit, and now the broadcasters are cheating for them!
    Pens can’t win without cheating
    You can’t spell Crosby without CRY

    They did have this feed on CSN however they did NOT have the closeup that FSN Pittsburgh showed here. It’s at about 6:17 of the above video…click pause/play beginning around 6:14 and you’ll see the puck over the line.
    What a joke…the NHL reminds me of WCW sometimes. Not to mention think about the rule interpretation. Even if there’s no camera angle that shows the whole puck over the line at any one point, if the whole puck comes BACK over the line, make the deduction (that’s largely what the CSN Philly replay showed, minus the zoom that FSN Pittsburgh had). Penny short and pound foolish on this interpretation – be real.

    While we’re on the subject of Pittsburgh crybabies, don’t forget Hines Ward of the Steelers. Biggest crybaby among WR’s in the entire NFL! Any defenseman gets within 3 feet of him and he wants an interference call. Sorry ass….
