A 25% raise for white collar workers when minimum wage stays the same? Sounds like capitalism to me.
Getting back on topic: CBC might have kept the league going during the dry spell, but TSN brought it out of that dry spell. Generally I'm a fan of the CBC, but its football coverage is subpar. Take radio, for example: when was the last time you heard a decent discussion of football on Metro Morning? During Grey Cup week, when its sister TV stations were planning the big broadcast, the radio stations were pointing out the failure of the Renegades seven months earlier. The CBC gives me the impression that they are going through the motions with football; there's no sense of occasion or planning like they have with hockey.
On another point: if the CBC pulls out of football completely, it will dampen the value of CFL broadcast rights. Only one bidder means it's a buyer's market. Would Rogers try to compete with TSN?
