omg we are exactly 3 weeks away from first pre-season games. training camps are starting in two weeks. i know some of you don’t care about pre-season but i like it. i like knowing who the new players are and what the depth options are at each position. can’t wait for game threads. my beer isn’t the same without football lol.
the full schedule is posted in the CFL Schedule Calendar and i will link entries to game info as the season goes on.
3down nation reported that only 44k watched the 2 rounds of the draft due to the leafs game. Sure hope this early start to the cfl season doesnt get buried with edm and toronto in the playoffs. Even though they both lost the first game they are favoured to move on to the next round.
Watched sportsdesk late after the draft was done. The first 20 min was leafs. Then the dallas game. After that the nba playoffs. The second half of the hour started with the leafs again. The cfl draft made an appearance at the 44min mark and had 2 quick stories and done by the 45 minute mark.
I know they did a lot to lead up to the draft but it seems to be tossed aside pretty quick.
Tender it? no one else has the capability.
Sportsnet only has facilities in Toronto to broadcast the Jays and Raptors, when they broadcast Jays and Raptors away games they get the other teams feed but use their own announcers.
They have contracted out their NHL broadcasts so they can use the CBC facilities.
Global wouldn’t have the capability. CBC is getting out of the live sports.
Sports in Canada is now almost entirely on the two sports networks.
If you watch the Jays, Raps, the CFL or the NHL you need to subscribe to TSN or Sportsnet.
You can also stream both of them and that’s the future
No not at all.
I think TSN does a great job and when I watch the CFL in the US on ESPN2 or ESPN+ it’s the TSN feed and it’s professional.
I may get tired of the non-stop yapping of Glen Suitor but I just mute it when he’s on
The only surprise is the BC at Calgary 226k ? I know it’s a Thursday night game but it’s two west teams.
Friday night game big audience for the Bombers at 511k
Ottawa/Montreal at 452k not bad but take away the French audience and only 278k in Canada.
No surprise the biggest audience is always the Riders at 535k
Friday will no doubt be the biggest TV audience with the two most watched teams - Bombers/Riders
And the Thursday night game Ottawa/Stamps will have the lowest TV rating
