Next Thursday 7:30PM ET is the season opener with Saskatchewan @ Hamilton. I’m sure TSN was/is planning on giving it significant coverage to give the season a nice positive kickoff.
I’m sure all CFL fans want that game to have as much media and fan attention as possible for the same reason. If you do - then you have got to be hoping that team that is hogging all the media attention in the country right now wins tonight and then again on Monday night to lock up their series.
Otherwise guess what night Game 6 is scheduled for and guess which sports network has the rights to it? If you guessed Thursday night and TSN - you would be right.
The CFL opener will be completely lost in the shuffle and likely relegated to just one of the TSN channels with little or no sports media coverage at all ifup against a Game 6. Not exactly the sort of kickoff the CFL would have hoped for.
