Well, if TSN is not on basic cable in some markets it's an outrage and something should be done about it. Write letters, complain to your various levels of government reps, picket, start a campaign, change providers, whatever, but don't just complain about it and then take your ball and go home. That's just lame.
The CBC, while available everywhere, was a pathetic, amateurish, lack lustre, careless production in the last few years before it was unceremoniously not even invited to bid on the TV rights. Meanwhile, TSN has taken over, given the CFL the respect it deserves, and has reaped the benefits of record numbers of viewers for some games and consistently dominating numbers for most. And all while apparently not being on basic cable everywhere.
