Dead serious,   Bud.  We needn't to keep our Canadian istitutions strong.  Be it through supporting sports, arts,  radio,  t.v. , the list goes on.

At least 3Down will likely have some banner headline material, if the ratings are as low as they probably will be (especially when they don't include RDS which televises every Al game and drew 250k for a game earlier this season.)

TSN knows the CFL has a very dedicated following. This might be a savvy marketing move with more fans ordering all 5 TSN stations...just in case so they won't miss any games.

TSN is going "all out" for the NFL this season, along with CTV1, CTV2, TSN1, TSN2...and so on. The CFL is probably an afterthought, other than utilizing the solid CFL ratings on TSN to market the NFL (with slick CTV NFL ads shown during CFL games promoting the Sunday 1 pm kickoff of the HUGE NFL matchup...but little mention during the telecast of a CFL game in the same Sunday time-slot on the network they're watching.

I guess the fix is in...enjoy it while we can, with the next generation probably having no football, not even a "quirky" one which predates the American version (but try to find out about it in the history books with the media largely shunning the league.) Nobody will care, I guess.

I am with you 100 % on this Preisst.
Our tax dollars should stop funding CBC.
The govt should not be in the business of being in business.
I avoid CBC as much as possible.  My news comes from CTV and Global.
With the exception of Murdoch Mysteries and Kim's Convenience, it is complete crap.

TSN isn't going in anything with the NFL. They aren't doing anything new this year. Do you live in the mountains?
TSN will always have the CFL on their main channel TSN1.  TSN2 was the alternative programming so the US Open golf which is the biggest event going on in the world has to be provided on TSN1. Its not that complicated.
Football is the biggest sport in North America including Canada. And in Canada its #2. And there isn't a sport that comes close to Hockey and Football.
The CFL is TSN's main priority and they aren't stupid knowing the fans could easily tune to the alternative guide as it said on the bottom screen for 20 minutes and was mentioned in commercial break on TSN1.
And not sure where others live but on TSN1 the game was on most of the 1st qtr.

CBC at a time was the best sports network probably in the world. Everything they did was top of the line.

How CBC did HNIC was even copied from CBS on how they did the broadcasting. CBC has and had at the time the best producers and stagehand in the world.

Great example is when they did the CFL on CBC they won countless awards for stage production and producing. CBS sending their guys up when they did the '98 Grey Cup was a sign that CBC  knew what they were doing.

The graphics was not notch, the quality of production, and feed, was at a time unbeatable.

Another great example is how Dragons Den production team was sent down to the USA when Shark Tank was canceled on ABC. The network was so high on CBC level of talent they had them come down and redo the entire show for the 2nd season and most of the 3rd season.

This is how Dragons Den cast was put on Shark Tank.

What they hat they need to do is restore more funding to CBC, if tsn stop supporting cfl,  and pick it up again if no other station will,  some things I'm just all right with the gov't helping out where needed.  Lots of job off spring from sports,  ask the community owned riders.  Or should that go to ?

MORE funding for CBC ?  F that.

If that is the case better be giving the same to CTV and Global.

They are both Canadian networks.

CTV and Global can not get funding.

CBC is the only one for obvious reason. I agree CBC should get more funding. I have no problem tax payers paying for CBC tv/radio. CBC in its prime with HNIC/CFL/OLYMPICS/PRIMETIME/COMEDY SHOWS was the best on tv in canada.
