Blue Jackets will get national TV exposure twice in 2011-12

The Columbus Blue Jackets have earned some repect this off-season with all of the bold changes they’ve made. But they still have to earn the respect of the television networks to get more games on national television.

The NHL Network has passed them up for this coming season.

The National Hockey League has released its 2011-12 television schedule and the Blue Jackets will get two late-season TV dates on Versus, the NBC Sports Network on March 28 against Detroit and April 5 at Colorado.

There is flex scheduling and there is a chance if the team is winning as the season goes along, they might receive a few more dates. But sometimes, the team’s losing ways in the past and small TV market has worked against it. However, as the saying goes, “winning cures all.”

The Blue Jackets are not the only team that won’t be shown on the NHL Network this year; Phoenix, Florida, and Edmonton are the others.

The Minnesota Timberwolves fired Kurt Rambis on Tuesday, ending more than three months of rumors and speculation surrounding the coach of the NBA’s worst team in 2010-2011.

Rambis could never get the T-wolves going in two years. He had a record of 32-132, which breaks down to 15-67 in 2009-2010 and 17-65 in 2010-2011. Not enough progress for David Khan, President of Basketball operations to keep him on as head coach.

Rambis had a 4-year contract and Minnesota will have to pay him the remaining two years worth $4 million on the deal.

The 53-year-old Rambis won four NBA titles while playing with the Los Angeles Lakers. He also played with Charlotte, Phoenix and Sacramento.

Shock in Tulsa! Richardson resigns, Edwards takes over


Nolan Richardson has resigned as coach and general manager of the WNBA’s worst team at 1-10, the Tulsa Shock. He will be replaced on an interim basis by Teresa Edwards.

David Box, one of the owners of the team, says that Richardson stepped down after going just 7-38 in just over a season at the helm. In his final game, Tulsa lost to Phoenix, 86-78.

Richardson was lured out of retirement to coach women’s basketball for the first time, in the city where he build a productive men’s program at the University of Tulsa.

The Shock were the former Detroit franchise, but most of the top players did not want to move from Michigan to Oklahoma.

Edwards, who is an Olympic gold medalist who is going into the basketball hall of fame in August, made her debut on Sunday in a rematch with Phoenix.

She’ll be the coach for the rest of the season.

Cincinnati Reds third baseman Scott Rolen knew he was going to the All-Star Game in Phoenix as an injury replacement, but now he will be a starter in the National League lineup.

Rolen became an All-Star for the seventh time when Atlanta Braves third baseman Chipper Jones was placed on the disabled list with a torn meniscus in his right knee. Rolen was ranked second among third baseman on the NL Player Ballot.

The 36-year-old Rolen in 62 games this season, is batting .241 with five home runs and 36 RBI’s.

He has been an All-Star with St. Louis from 2002-2007 and with the Reds in 2010 and now 2011.

Rolen will bat ninth in the NL lineup.

He’ll join three Reds teammates in Phoenix: 1b Joey Votto, 2b Brandon Phillips and RF Jay Bruce.

On another note, Rolen is one double shy of joining an exclusive club of major league players at his third base position who have collected at least 2,000 hits, 300 home runs, 1,200 RBI’s and 500 doubles.

Hall of Famers George Brett and Atlanta’s Chipper Jones are the only third baseman who have accomplished the feat.
