Well after moaning for a few days about the Lions and Canucks playing at the same time it happened. My wife has tickets for her company suite for the Canucks. Meaning we are going to miss the Lions game tonight and had to give away our tickets.
Seriously CFL, Hockey Night in Canada has been around for how many years? You didn't think that starting in October any city that has a CFL and NHL team might have such possible conflicts? It is too hard for you to look at a calendar when drafting your schedule? You don't care because you have our seasons tickets money already? (I shouldn't blame the Lions staff for the tools at the CFL doing this)
And before you disagree with me, notice how the NFL is mid season and the CFL still plays on Sundays. They are fools if they lose even one fan to a game when they know that the NHL plays on Saturdays and the NFL on Sundays.
This is a big game for our beloved Leos, and with my luck it will be blacked out so I won't even be able to watch it on the TV in the suite. Thanks for nothing CFL.
Seriously, there are 8 teams. It can't be that hard to make a schedule that doesn't risk such conflicts. And if it is for you guys, call me and I'll do it for the price of my seat (I'll still pay for my wife).
