"Provincial" Media

Not a single story from our so called provincial media regarding your he Herder game last night or the fact that also he Cataracts can wrap up the Provincial Sr Hockey Championship today. Nothing from NTV, CBC or VOCM. Guess if it didn't happen on the Avalon its not worthy of their coverage. Oh but ...

SHAME ON VOCM

More typical east coast bias in the media today. This time from VOCM which says the Herder has been "relegated" to a contest between the Cataracts and the Royals. Relegate: "to consign or dismiss to an inferior rank or position." What a ridiculously condescending choice of words. There's only one Se...

Re: The Herder is ON.

How does a amateur trophy be won by semi pro teams ???? There are two problems with this question: 1) There's no documentation linking the word amateur with the Herder Trophy. All references say it is simply to be awarded to the best senior hockey team in the province. 2) HNLs constitution lays out...

Re: Another opinion piece

This guy has posted so much misinformation the past few days I'm refusing to read this one. Don't trust my blood pressure to handle it.

Re: Some FACTS Carl

In the past couple of days I've read where former journalist Carl Lake has written that the Herder is supposed to be between the east and west. There is of course no documentation or evidence to back this up. There is however plenty of evidence to the contrary. According to former Telegram publisher...

Re: No herder for 2015 - Telegram Article

What the hell does the fact that there were few sellouts in CWSHL have to do with the story? Just another snide jab from the townie media against senior hockey outside the overpass. Attendance at CWSHL was more than 10 times what AESHL attracted. CWSHL didn't ask for this series. Neither did the AES...

Re: Some FACTS Carl

"It has to be east vs west to be a provincial championship"....why??? Based on that logic why would it be fair to exclude, Labrador or the South coast or any other part of the island? Seems like what he's really saying is that it doesn't count, in his mind, if a team from the Avalon isn't included. ...
