Seems very strange that Keith Pelley was ripping the CBC for such an “unacceptable broadcast” on Monday, and is now saying that he expects the CBC will improve things to an acceptable level in just one week?
Something is not right with that…
hellothere, you wrote "
Remember that no other T.V. network will take CFL games because they don’t want to appear to be, SCABs"
I don’t think other networks can be considered scab labour if they were to take over any of these broadcasts. They would be if CBC paid them to provide the coverage, but I can’t see that happening either. TSN/CTV is the rights holder to the games, and you’d have to think that they could exercise the right to protect their property (CFL broadcast rights) by ensuring that the games are broadcast to certain standards, including announcers.
I’m sure this is a big legal mess, so we are left with announcerless games. On the bright side, no Walby!
