Thumbs down Doug Smith: Raptors big shot upset with Sportsnet

Quote:
In a discussion with one of the biggest shots of all around the Raptors yesterday, the topic was the relative euphoria around the Heroes Of The Hardcourt after Sunday.

The conversation, almost verbatim:

He: Yeah, but I was ticked off when I got home.

Me: Remember a bad play or something?

He: No, I watched TV.

Me: I know, no Dancing With The Stars re-runs, what a crappy night.

He: Shut up. I watched Sportsnet. We were like the 10th story on the news. Beat the Lakers for goodness sake. The Lakers! We were after the Edmonton Oilers skills competition. The Edmonton-freaking-Oilers skills competition. Do you believe that?

Me: Ah, yeah.

So true...for me. But, what can you do; different strokes for different folks.

It's like ppl only like hockey because they are told to.

Sportsnet dropped all their pro basketball programming a couple years ago.

Sportsnet may actually be the worst channel on television, period.

Sportsnet doesn't really seem to care about basketball so if and when they talk about it you have to realize they don't have a fukin clue.

It's the only sports dedicated channel with Rogers basic cable, so it's a little disappointing if you're a student on a student package like myself.

The sports networks here suck most of the time...............i know personally I do not need to see 98676 replays of the 2008 World Series of Poker and Poker After Dark with a bunch of fucking morons that talk more than they play poker when there are oodles of NBA games that are not being shown

Me and you both. My roommates and I didn't hesitate to fork over the extra change to get the other sports channels.

Sports coverage in this country sucks, period. TSN/SN can't stand giving any kind of major credit to any sport other then Hockey, it almost seems like a petty jealousy thing.

A skills competition??


Truly pathetic. Yet nothing new.

Do you really think it's jealousy or a company looking to actually make money by broadcasting stuff that poeple actually watch?
