FSN Wild Coverage

Recommended Posts

Anybody else annoyed with the promos they keep flashing that take up a third of the screen? Other than that, coverage is very good. Arguably the most unbiased coverage of a MN team. Rodent team coverage is almost unwatchable. Maybe with a couple more decades of rebuilding, we'll get to see some non-homer broadcast teams.

I would agree that they get irritating, but I guess they've got to pay the bills. It's nice that almost all of the games seem to be on this year between FSN and 45.

Those pop ups bother me too. Also, I can't understand why Terhar (sp) is doing the broadcast...doesn't seem to know the team by the numbers, or more importantly the game....

Yeah, but it sucks for those of us in South Dakota when FSN doesn't carry the Wild Games that are on 45. We don't get any of the games on 45. At least FSN picks up the Twins games that are on 45 for broadcast outside of the Channel 45 cable coverage area. We just get screwed on the Wild coverage.

And the Gophers broadcast team needs to realize that it is Fox Sports North...not Fox Sports Twin Cities. They are the home channel for the UMD, UND, SCSU, Minn State-Mankato, etc. They need to be a little more unbiased when covering those other teams in their coverage area.

For the most part, I like FSN's coverage of both the Wild and Goph's. Let's just say the Wooger's delivery is unique. Funny guy,

My two beefs are: 1) They need more commercials; they're all are the same! Remember last year with that Excel energy commercial? (Whisper) We helped save $10,000... Ugghh, saw that one 500 times.

2) And this one is unexcuse-able. Give a WCHA score update on the ticker! I don't mind watching the Gophers (UMD fan here) if that's the only college hockey shown. But would it kill them to include it in their updates that flash every 10 minutes?

I totally agree with you on this one. As a SCSU fan, I usually end up trying to catch scores on the news or logging into the internet. I think many people (even Gophers fans) would appreciate more regular WCHA updates.

Is FSN hockey (Gophs and Wild) broadcast in High Def? I am a DirecTV subscriber and I heard many of the Fox Sports Nets are in HD but not sure about FSN. Just getting my HDTV deleivered this weekend and can't wait to see HD Hockey.

You're going to LOVE hockey in HD. I think HD was made for hockey. I’m not a Direct TV guy but I do get games in HD every Thursday night on HD Net. I also get the ABC games in HD that they occasionally broadcast on weekends. Usually Sundays around 2:00 I think. My brother-in-law has Direct TV and he told me that there are some games on FSN broadcast in HD but not all of them. I have not heard him mention any Gopher games but I know he's watched Wild games in HD. Make sure you get HD Net! Their HD is the only one that is broadcast in 1080i. The other channels are 720i or 720p. You can really see the difference. All the games in HD look much better than the digital or analog, but the games look almost 3D on HD Net. Good luck. You’re going to love it!

Wild TV people stink.

Simply the worst in NHL, but maybe work for FREE or Excell Dogs.

Laughable!

I have HDnet and those games are outstanding! Unfortunatley with Dish Network they are blocked out every time the Wild play because it's shown on FSN or Ch45. I remember there were some Ch45 HD games, but I always seem to miss them.
