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.

    • Used the impulse mayflys today, the fish were not biting well. I ended up catching a few nice gills on the mayflys but more fish with  the demon/ waxie combo. I want to try some lighter line with the horizontal jig /impulse mayfly and see what happens. Maybe 5 years ago I moved away from winter panfish fishing. I am so glad I am back catching panfish, a very enjoyable way to pass a winter morning!
    • 13 years ago I had my heart set on a Lund, I went with an Alumacraft because I could rig it out nicer with the money I was allotted by my better half at the time..........no regrets.
    • Ive owned 7 Lunds and don't see another one in the future.  Also been looking at the A-crafts.  The 205 trophy.  Have a 13' Lund Tyee 1800 now.  Good boat but its too light for big water.  Really like the fit and finish of the Aluma's.  The black windshield trim is sharp and the carpet on the top of the gunwale is also nice.  Really impressed.  Not gonna take out a mortgage to buy a glass boat either.
    • I’ve never done anything with mine. I store it standing up and in the fall change the oil if I remember. Haven’t had any issues yet. 
    • I had problems with my 02. I found that the plug on the truck side going to the plug at the bumper was corroded. I hope that made sense I cleaned it up and put dielectric grease on it.    
    • I would put some Seafoam in the ga.........................  oh never mind. 😁
    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever.
