  1. Net Neutrality 2017

    You're simplifying it a bit too much. For folks who live in the sticks, there is no incentive for a company to run miles of fiber/ether for a couple subscribers. You won't make up the capital costs. AT&T was a government-granted monopoly for phone service, and they recouped their money by being the only option for phone and extremely healthy corporate welfare. For large cities, yes the telcos have failed. And yes, there is a marked lack of competition for high-speed internet (I built my house and my options were FiOS and Xfinity<-- worst rebrand in corporate history). But some of that is on the localities - you know how expensive and difficult it is to get anything done in NYC? Wanna get 1G speeds to NYC? It is going to cost tens of millions dollars, not counting the time. There are 2 sides to every coin. There are some valid concerns with how companies will abuse their newly rediscovered "freedom" and there are some valid counter arguments to why the rules weren't great. It is rarely as one sided as it is presented.

    Umm, WiFi for the last mile might. But guess what is sitting behind the WiFi connection? An ISP’s network consisting of fiber and ether. 5G is the next wave in population centers, with LTE fall back. Won’t work in the country.

    Puck bounced over his stick. Not exactly a bad play by him, just a bad bounce. Which is happening mire more often this year than in years past. Seems like the Capital One ice is the worst ice in DC in a long time.

    And now a dirty ass knee on knee hit from Hartman on Ovie. Intentional. Stuck it out wide. And Wilson wrecks 2 Hawks. Ovie got 2 games for a knee on knee like that against Carolina. Next time Hartman steps on ice he should be forced to answer the bell.

    I really don't like the current environment of "guilty upon accusation" that seems to be taking hold in this country.

    Dillon got a game for his slash on Bowey.

    And here is Dumbo Joe. Notice Joe is looking down at Oshie to line his hit up.

    Bowey checked Dillon on the halfwall and knocked him off balance. Wilson moved both hands to the butt end and chopped down on Boweys wrist/hand from over his head. Got a 5 min major, but there were only 4.6 seconds left. One of the worst slashes of the season by far and deserving of at least 2 games.

    San Jose can eat a bag of dicks. Dumbo Joe and Dillon should have earned multi-game suspensions. Dumbo Joe looked at Oshie the entire time and aimed his hit. And Dillon swung the stick like an axe. Don’t be surprised if Bowey broke something. One of the dirtiest games games I have seen a team play in a LONG time.
