This controversy has been going on for years. I would rather the CBC continue broadcasting the CFL, the Briar, the Tournament of Hearts, the Commonwealth Games, etc, as they have the experience and expertise to do so. As well, (not that it was apparent last game) the CBC has a mandate (official or not) to be impartial in sports broadcasting. My thoughts would be that private national broadcasters would be highly partial in favour of teams owned/located near the headquarters of those companies (imaging CTV or Rogers showing blue team games - shudder).
What do you think?
