Well friends, I've had it with football on TSN. To pay for their TV contract they've added 3/4 hour of commercials. At the 2 1/4 hour mark we used to be just wrapping up the game. Now at that mark we're about to start the 4th quarter. When the CBC had the contract we could at least be sure that games were over in 2 1/2 hours. Now we have to put up with 3 hours. If I invite a few freinds for a double-header they have to commit to 6 hours instead of 5. When they have kids that extra hour is a big deal.
Before all of the conservative voters got their way, the league was subsidized by a CBC contract that paid far more than the rights were worth. Ergo - we had a better football product and fewer commercials. Now, I just can't stand to watch.
I will continue to watch the MGBs so long as the game is interesting. As soon as it turns into snoozy time I'm gone though. As for the rest of the schedule? Hey I have better things to do and you can only flip channels for so long.
I now have a better appreciation of the complaints by the ladies about guys who can't "finish" and just go on and on and on and .....
