People like to whine about this and blame the media. Why does the media do it then? Because it is WHAT THE FANS WNAT TO SEE. Check out the all-star balloting.
Or how about this-try getting a ticket in Calgary, Edmonton or Vancouver during this western road trip, you will pay a pretty penny because he is a HUGE DRAW. Then try to get a Devils ticket for a western road swing....shouldn't be a problem. That in itself says volumes.
The only comparison I can see is when people whine about how much air time Tiger Woods gets. Myself, as most golf fans, tune in to see what Tiger does, not what Joe Blow Smith does.
Sorry, Parise is not the reigning scoring champion, MVP etc.- Personally, I look to see what Sid did. Most do.
Furthermore- Him making his first Western Canada appearance WAS THE BIG STORY OF THE NIGHT.
Sounds like you are more jealous than sick. If it were Parise or if Sid played for the Devils then you couldn't get enough. Gauranteed.
