"I’m working through the sections and will return them to you ASAP."

Don't know what this is.

Detritus on the 'clipboard'. I had meant to copy paste a portion of your post. I guess I failed the 'copy' part.

It is greed, plain and simple.

The NHL is a business. They will do what they can to increase revenue and value. I don't have an issue with that. Advertising on the 'boards' doesn't bother me to the point that I complain about it. It wouldn't on the jersey either. When and if it affects attendance and ratings (long term - which is the tricky part to focus on), then they will stop. Same with ticket price increases. The end of humanity won't be driven by overt advertising that you can walk away from.

If you want to make the case that under the radar and targeted advertising money, like drives social media revenue, has an insidious side to it, I can see that trend. But 'Dunkin Donuts' behind the net, sorry that is not the 'end of civilization'.
