I have been watching some outstanding videos (courtesy of CBCnews cfl show last night which set up the online site for archives) and I have to say what an amazing job CBC did.
The theme music (they had 5 of them) all of them except for the last 2-3 seasons were amazing. The late 80s/90s theme was one of the best theme songs in history.
The graphics/font/color scheme on CBC was by far the best. They were geniuses as they started that color scheme which CBS sports copies (which is fact from the show) The sports producer of CBC assisted CBS sports doing a company changeover in production in the late '90s.
It also appeared that the tv was bright/contrast and not a bold appearance like TSN did at the time and even today (though HD has changed quality)
I miss the CBC sports team. Well at least we got the olympics.
