A couple of points I wanted to address here.
First, Tough did make the announcement before I had a chance to do so. We were in the midst of launching the NHL program on very short notice ourselves, so I had simply not gotten to make the post on ABW
yet. Again, I apologize for that lapse in communication. Hopefully, you can understand the position we were placed in.
Secondly, if I could have given you all more notice, I would have gladly done so. We didn't know that NHL was leaving CJ
and coming to BeFree until the day of the actual move. As the deal was being put together, no one ever got around to informing the Online Marketing team here of a transition date. So what happened? All of a sudden we get news that NHL has to be transitioned to BeFree in 2 days. CJ
sent out their communication to affiliates (I know a lot of you say you never got this email, but I am only repeating what I was told by CJ
), and GSI hurried to get the program live on BeFree.
As for why the old CJ
links are redirecting to the NHL homepage instead of the standard "this link is no longer valid" page. I will get in touch with the old CJ
managers and see why this is happening.
