..and I thought the Phoenix Coyotes unis were bad..oddly enough, although advertising is omnipresent in sports here ("This quarterback sack brought to you by Avalanche biscuits,,,,and he goes down like an AVALANCHE"...(quote from radio play-by-play of football games), they don't allow advertising on uniforms here yet. I wonder why there is this gaping omission in an otherwise blanket coverage of possible sites. TV in the USA is experimenting with a gadget which projects advertising onto empty areas of the field, arena etc during games. The ads are only visible to TV viewers...it must be horrendously distracting. We already have to put up with a computer highlighted puck in games shown on Fox network..allegedly to help dim American fans follow the play. Why they think a wobbly white dot is easier to follow against white ice than a defined black dot is beyond me. There are two neat things about it though...you can 'see' the puck through the boards as if by X-ray, and when it is shot hard a red comet-tail appears behind it as it speeds towards the net...
