Most people don't want to pay the SV let alone the BV.
    This is why i dont give a rats*** about what the BV is and i recommend everyone else to avoid using it too as a tool on cards made after 2005.

    Cards made after 2005 to me have limited intrinsic value, and carry no importance, so I am with you on that one. Lol. To me they are simply a commodity to make money on.

    For Panini, it's a small loss in the grand scheme of things. Hockey accounts for less than a fifth of the cards they release.

    This is a make or break deal for Upper Deck, and it wouldn't surprise me if it proves to be a massive white elephant. The company has been on the brink of disaster for quite some time and with hockey's razor-thin profit margin, if they don't find a way to make it quickly profitable (in other words, we the collectors will be bent over a rail for a subpar product), they'll be headed down the tubes quickly.

    The NHL is the same league who signed a TV deal with the Outdoor Life Network over ESPN. They changed the way they measure attendence just so they could claim record numbers of fans were attending games post-lockout. It's a league that doesn't know what the hell it's doing in anything related to marketing. This deal is further proof of that.

    Which has now become a very viable Channel in the NBC Sportsnetwork. I'd say that has worked out nicely. They also signed the deal with Versus, who had already transcended the old OLN and was under new ownership.

    The NBCSN gig is the smartest thing the NHL has ever done in terms of television. Certainly that was not the pie in the sky that all Americans think that ESPNBA is, but it is now paying off. Disney needs to learn a lesson, and the NHL gave them some stick back for assuming that Hockey was dead.

    News flash Americans, I like my Sports Channels to cover Sport, not spelling bees, cheerleading competitions, and chess.

    TSN covers all that. Poker too. It's not an American phenomenon. Sometimes, just no one is playing.
    "He's gone crazy," "You have to snap out of it," "Take your meds," or, "Don't be such a downer" serve only to mock, belittle, and make light of mental illness. Such phrases only continue the negative stigma and keep those who suffer from getting help. If these phrases, or phrases like them, are part of your at-hand vocabulary, you are part of the problem. #STOPtheStigma

    Why is no one even making mention of this? The OP was vilified by some people on these boards. Yet, in the end...
