Well TSN is kicking ass with their CFL broadcasts, and if they are doing pre-season now I'm even more on board. Only thing is they are making big money on the back of the CFL, and when it's time to renegotiate a deal, CFL WILL get a substantially larger chunk of cash.

Makes sense to me, I know the TSN mentality if you will, gives full service to the CFL and hockey and other stuff like curling which I like at least the highlights. Sportsnet, way too much boring baseball although tune in a bit to CHL stuff and The Score doesn't register for me any more since they dropped the CFL show with Duane Ford although I do watch some CIS stuff.

I would like some more stuff like whl and cis out west on tsn. Get rid of poker

What, you mean you don't enjoy watching a sports network televise fat, creepy guys in dark shades sitting around a table? :smiley:

Took up curling this year and its quickly becoming my second favourite sport after football both as a spectator and participant..
