Dallas Stars Advertising Humor

A bit of an NHL tie-in to the whole Tim Donaghy NBA referee scandal here. The Dallas Stars decided to use some advertising on a billboard (above) involving the NBA's latest problem.


"If you've seen the billboard near American Airlines Center, you might think the Stars should be sent to the penalty box for slashing another sport when it's down.

Or you could soak in the message – "The only thing our refs shave is the ice" – and do what Mavericks owner Mark Cuban did.


"I think it's hysterical," Cuban said. "Good for them. It's a fun ad."

NBA commissioner David Stern isn't laughing. But then, how many Stars home games was he going to attend anyway? "

They often say controversy creates cash. In this case, Dallas Stars are looking for more fans to show up for their games. However, something to ponder- who's to say how many other professional refs may have ever been involved in "fixing" games or point spreads?
