It looks great on a HDTV...I wonder if TSN can get their cameras to do this at all stadiums.
It's a shame they have to back to the dome !
hmmm I think making Ivor Wynne look good is gonna take more than a different camera angle. :lol:
But you're right, Empire is simply beautiful!
I hope the new stadium in Ottawa will look this good...
Actually, I think I know what works with Empire that makes it seem so fantastic. It's that old-school, classic feel. It looks like a stadium from the 1930s or something. Here in Winnipeg the Goldeyes are a big draw (independent baseball) partly because the stadium is so beautiful...it looks and feels like you're in a 1930s stadium, which really adds to the experience.
I think the tendency is to build futuristic stadiums, cutting edge, etc. But i think both casual fans and the hardcore feel a little more excited to walk into a new stadium that feels like it has roots as old as the league itself. If they can build a new stadium in Ottawa that captures the history of CFL football, I think they'd draw more people on a consistent basis.
for sure thats a nice ballpark in the peg but i think, its hardly popular, i mean it seats like 8000 max and rarely sells out and tix are 5 bucks.
trust me if tix were 20 30 40 bux for less than minor league baseball, ppl wouldnt show up.
ok, let's not talk out of our ***** right now.
they average about 6000 a season, once it's all said and done...and tickets are not $5....they range from $7 to $18.50, and it's ALWAYS the cheap seats that are the most empty.
yes, it's still cheaper than football games, but I'm just saying what I know...if they didn't have a nice ballpark with great concessions they'd draw a lot less people....there's a lot of people at those games that don't care about baseball at all. Friends can easily get their non-sports friends out to games because of the stadium.
i would go if the team was actually worth watching, i've been to at least 20 games, and i don't think i've once seen a home run, my grandparents love it because its not too exciting but they also love watching curling...
I've been really impressed in general with TSN's camera work this year so far. They clearly invested in new camera's and technology and they must have a new producer or something, becuase the camera angles are way tighter and there are so many shots of the play from field level. Its fantastic.
I think the next step for the league from a marketing perspective is for the fans to get to know the players, and the new camera work by TSN will go a long way in people being able to recognize the players.
Keep up the good work TSN in helping to grow Canada's game!!
