"The National Lacrosse League announced today that the league has reached an agreement with VERSUS to air nine games during the 2011 season. The national television package will feature regular-season and playoff games, culminating with the NLL Championship Game. The broadcast schedule will begin with the live telecast of the 2011 All-Star Game on February 27 at 2:00 PM Eastern. The full broadcast schedule will be announced at a later date. "
Wait a second....is the NLL actually making forward progress? It seems like its been so long where I have heard an announcement from the league and was exited rather then confused and a little disgusted .
The one problem with versus is one that american NHL fans are currently facing: VERSUS is seemingly on channel 17and a half. Not many serves providers carry this channel. If you have Satellite TV under anyone else but Dish Network or DirectTV, you're sh*t out of luck.
I commend the league on their timing though, it seemed to distract everybody from lapdancegate. Did I just remind everybody? Sorry NLL.
I just find it suspicious that they make this announcement without a schedule of games. It seems like it was almost released early to get our minds of lapdancegate.
Good move NLL.
Theres going to be an All-Star Game!!!
The game takes place at the Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, New York on February 27 at 2 PM. The 2011 NLL All-Star game presented by the Oneida Indian Nation will be televised live nationally on VERSUS!
