Maybe their contract with the Panthers is better?

Hasn't it always been that way? It seems the Lightning are the red headed step children of Sunsports... as well they should be. Considering all that the Turds have accomplished in their glorious history.:wink: I mean they did make it to the Finals before us. The fact they were swept is of little consequence to them. I have learned to ignore the setup of the front page of that site.

I should have been more specific about that. It just seems to be every time there is a Lightning and Turds game being broadcast by Sunsports, the Lightning get shafted by having a small picture while the Turds have a larger one. I apologize for the confusion.

Why doesn't Sunsports have a Sports Desk show like pretty much every other Fox sports channel???

The ratings for 'turds games are WAY below Bolts games, so they need the extra publicity.

I did see the actual numbers a few weeks ago, could dig them up if anyone's interested.

I'm sure you probably know this, but they're not both on SunSports, the 'turds are on FSN Florida. I think both state B-Ball teams use both channels, but not 100% on that.

I just surprised they were able to get enough Panther watchers to formulate a report.

I'd be interested if you have the time and energy.

I have seen the Lightning games w/ the big header too, while the turds get the smaller one; not sure if it is a conspiracy but I will be looking for it now that you mentioned it for consistency
