They gotta go.
Bad enough with games Thurs Fri Sat Sun, four days all stretched out. These holiday weeks are unbearable. I got into football mode Thurs (but had to miss the game because of work and the game in the eastern time zone (!). Then two whole days of NO football. Then one Sun and 2 Mon. This week is ridiculous.
I get into football mode for the weekends, then I do other things during the week. These Thursday games are just wrong. Just when one week finishes, the next one is already upon you. I hate it. BC plays on Thurs, Winnipeg plays on Sun. These are rivals in the standings. When one team wins, you want to see if the other team can keep pace, but then have to wait THREE DAYS! It's stupid.
This is all just my personal perspective, but what about the players? Some teams get a 5 day week and others 9!! Mind you they make sure that teams seem to have maybe 1 rest day difference max when playing each other, but even that must make a massive headache for the scheduler for no reason whatsoever.
Yes I realize that the move is for TV. Yes I realize that the league is becoming less and less gate driven, but I just can't stand these Thursday nite games. They drive me nuts. They have to stop. I don't ever want to see them again.
