I'm curious to know to what degree media coverage changes in the cities that have both a CFL and NHL franchise.
TSN1050 radio here in Toronto is broadcasting most of the day from the Mastercard Centre - the Maple Leafs practice facility and site of their training camp, which I guess opens today.
Now, I understand that hockey is the number 1 sport in the country, but, at least in Toronto, the media coverage of all things Maple Leafs is insane.
Last year, the same TSN1050 radio station - the "Voice of the Argonauts" - moved their broadcast of a regular season Argos game to an affiliated (non-sports) radio station, so they could broadcast a Maple Leafs preseason game!
I. WAS. PISSED!!
I won't continue my rant, but I'd like to know if the CFL gets bumped down in coverage once the hint of NHL starting comes along.
