Time for my yearly post about the lack of news of US broadcasting rights for the upcoming season.
I can't understand why the CFL can't partner with someone down here in the States for a multiyear deal. July and August are dead months in the US, and there is NOTHING on (sorry, I don't consider poker playing a sport).
After the World Cup, there won't really be anything worthwhile to watch, unless you're a WNBA fan. :roll:
I thought NBC did a pretty nice job last year (although there should have been more games broadcast, IMHO), and they definitely did better than the NFL Channel did the year prior (with NFL training camp news replacing the TSN guys' analysis) + the NFL pretty much dumped the CFL when the NFL regular season started (we pretty much had to scramble to see the Grey Cup - there was NO playoff coverage at all!)
Anyway, I hope NBC picks up the CFL again, or maybe one of the regional networks down here (like Altitude, etc.)
