is the blackout lifted for bc - rider game on june 25th, 2006?
I dunno Im trying to find out if the blackouts only in regina cause i live in saskatoon and i hate listening to games on the radio.
me too im in saskatoon i know some bars will have the game but would stay home and watch on a sunday night.
the blackout is province-wide. And as of last night Tsn was still advertising it as local blackout in effect but they dont have to announce until shortly before the game i believe
Aw that sucks. Im 13 so i cant go into any bars. Ohwell
TSN is allowed to lift 2 blackouts every year, unless the game is sold out, then they are allowed to show it.
I believe it is the team itself that makes the decision on which blackouts to lift, and they generally lift additional blackouts if the game is 90% or more sold out 48 hours prior to kickoff.
HD from access cable carries the eastern chanels, so I had it on the HDTV, but it wasn't on the regular TSN channel. So if you can get HD from the east, get it.
Nothing I can't stand is someone who claims to be a rider fan but never comes to the game.
21,000 for a season opener. Thats pathetic. What are we, the Argos.
Everygame should be a blackout. 620 does a better job than those CBC or TSN clowns anyway. I just wish they could get rid of that TV delay so I could listen to the radio and watch the game .
Road games only
Only once in over twenty years have I been denied a ticket to a 'rider's regular season game because they were "sold out." I am always a "walk up," meaning that I get my ticket just before game time. If you are just looking for one ticket, you'll get one. There is no excuse for not being able to get a ticket to a 'rider game if you want to go. They rarely sell out. Even if you are dirt poor and can't afford to go, they even give tickets away to Regina's "less fortunate."
I don't go to as many games as I once did because I am getting a little sick of the dirty language of some of the idiotic fans sitting around me. It is getting worse rather than better. There is no way I am going to a sporting event with my child where the most common word heard is the "f-word." The other fans keep me from rider games more often than not. I may be oversensitive, but filth is filth.

You should educate your children on the meaning and proper use of these 'filthy' words.
Ever think the reason children think these words have great meaning is cause they dont really understand what they mean? all they know is they arent suppose to use them.
herschel, while the language won't keep me away from a game, I agree with oxbow. Filth is filth and foul expletives really do not have any proper use in the english language. It is sad that we cannot take a child to a game without having to worry about what they may hear.
Narles, i get what your saying but i think you are missing my point Words are words, they only have the meaning YOU give them. People who "swear" place little value on them, where you chose to place a a greater one. We should chose to listen to the meaning trying to be communicated rather than the words used.
Which is worse calling someone an idoit or yell F*** when you screw up. I would think that as a parent you should be more focused on what they are trying to communicate rather than the words they use. also it pays to rememeber that what you find non-offensive someone else might find offensive. take eating a hamburger, to some people cows are sacred and you may be offending them without even knowing it.
A person's parenting skills or religious beliefs are hardly the issue. Personally, someone who is defending the use of foul language in public is not someone whose advice I would follow when it comes to teaching my children right from wrong. No where in polite society is foul language acceptable. I have been to numerous sporting events, including 'rider games where fans have been escorted out of the statium for being overly vulgar. My clearest memory dates back to the days when Reggie Slack was quarterback and during one of his less than stellar performances, a fan who was by no means a young man, kept screaming at the top of his lungs throughout the first half of the game "bring in f***** Mason" (the backup QB at that time). Funny thing is that he was sitting up in the nose bleed section so I doubt if the coaches could hear him. But the volunteers who do things for people at the games definitely heard him. It was not long before he was being escorted out of the statium.
But why is it that you think f*** is a filthy word?
Be honest with yourself why do you thihnk filthy words are filthy is it cause your parents told you they were.
why is SH*T A filthy word? do you know why? look it up the reason its looked down on is that the english thought thaat using the scotish word shite showed your lack of breeding. people who used shite or sh** were therefore thought less of.
but hey i bet you look down on it for some other reason eh?
To me, language such as that used frequently by people shows a lack of intelligence required to phrase things in a less vulgar way. Those words have harsh sounds and are unpleasant to hear - regardless of their origins. My family had few restrictions on language that way, but I feel a public place is no place to use them. It sounds extremely uneducated to do so, in my opinion.
You guys.... You guys are fighting over words that really dont matter. This is where we talk about the riders - no tthe words that come out of our mouths, filthy or otherwise. You sounds stupid really. everyone is entitled to their opinions. THis thread started out on the TSN and CBC Blackouts, not vulgar words as some would call them.
Good lord you are from PA, that is probably the most vulgar place in Sask you should be used to it by now.
Becoming accustomed to something doesn't make it right.....
