The only consolation to the black out was that we we spared for a few minutes of not having to listen to the worst anouncer in all of of sports, Jim Leahy!

The PUC should investigate Oceanic immediately, considering that Oceanic has come forward to say "We will not issue a refund."

This is Oecanic having the full weight of a monopoly on its side and the consumer consistently gets screwed out of what they rightfully payed for.

At the very least, this constitutes a "breach of contract", as the PPV is a contractual agreement with the customer and they failed to deliver on their end of the contract.

I watched the game in a bar in Kalihi and I demand a refund on all the beer I was forced to drink and all the pupu I was forced to eat during the blackout. They made me do it -- honest!

I celebrate this awesome win and really enjoyed rubbing it in to those that took Fresno State. But in reality, Fresno State is still the better team. On Saturday, it was more a case of Fresno State beating themselves (six turnovers) rather than the Bows beating the Dogs. But it is still an awesome win and I celebrate this great victory. And I celebrate really rubbing it in to all those traitors who bet against Hawaii. I hope you guys lost your shirt and pants on that game.

I still demand a refund from Oceanic for all the beer I was forced to drink during the "Technical Difficulties"

No Matter what anyone says about UH they area still an awesome team. THEY TRY THEIR BEST...They had an awesome season last season and not ever year will be the same. Supporters out there just give up to early!! I have faith in the Warriors. I also would like to give credit to the O-Line who hardly gets credit. You boys just keep on doing what you have done this past game against Fresno. I am very very proud of you all!!
Don't listen to the supporters who just give up on you all lets see them do what you all do I bet that they can't. PEOPLE JUST THINK THAT ITS SO EASY.

This was an AWESOME and needed win for the University of Hawaii. Winning against 22nd ranked Fresno, when everyone was predicting a 21 point loss to Fresno is indeed AWESOME!

It also changes what the rest of the season will look like!

If anything they should give us a refund for each time that the camerman got faked out and wasn't following the ball and we couldn't see the play...

We should have a 25% refund. Oceanic cheated us out of 1/4 of the game.

Fresno was way overrated hon. They will never appear in the top 40 again. They are a bad team. Warriors are an improving minor league team with a soft schedule where the games are played mainaly at home.

Jim Leahey should retire. They should just show the game without Leahey and simulcast Curran & Kekaula's radio play by play. Mo bettah!!!

Kekaula is a homer and cannot call an objective game. Fresno flat out stunk and kekaula pretends the warriors beat a great team. Warriors are done for the year.

The game between LA Tech and Boise was much closer than the final score indicated. Warriors need to stay focused and to play at the same level (or better) as with SJSU (but w/o turnovers/personal foul penalties) & FSU to get one game closer to the 7 win magic number. 2 down 5 to go:-)

"The Warriors caused the Turnovers" .... that good football

Face it the Warriors went to Fresno to win... and that they did... the hold team has unified and plays with Heart... unlike earlier in the year...

We paid for the entire away games (1st quater included). Oceanic should give a refund for not providing on their promise.
