Unhappy Raps TV

When did they start airing paid programming?

Perhaps it's been there for a while and I just never noticed.

I guess they've got bills to pay. hehe

coincidentally, i was just going to start a thread about Raptors NBA TV.

This is the first season i have ever watched the channel since picking it up in October.

and i must say i freaking love it.

It's a great channel.... so much better than GolTV (which i dropped in order to get raps TV). I don't know about you guys, but after a win, i love re-watching the highlites and the re-plays. Game in an hour is absolutely awesome for that.... and all the player and coach interviews are really nice to have considering i didn't have access to it previosly.

REally happy i have this channel now... disappointed i didn't figure to get it before.

They've had the informercials since the season started I think. Not long, and mostly on weekends.

I find there is a lot less as far as coverage of scrums after practices. There's just much more of a low-key media presence than what was there before. I miss the Hoops show too. Stuff like that was pretty thin on real content, but it was good for tuning in and out and leaving on for background noise. There's just much less basketball chatter when it was so bottomless before.

Raps Tv isn't as good as last year or the years before. They took off Hoops with Eric Smith, Full Court press, and have cut the Pre & Post game shows in half.

All that and Gate 5 blows big hairy moose cock.


All that being said i still love having a Raps channel, mainly for the highlights, game in an hour and some of the specials they have, such as behind the draft and Training camp.

There is some X's and O's type stuff done in some of the pre-game shows. Which I actually prefer. The half-hour format was a bit too long for me.

Full Court Press needed to quietly die off ever since Norma was canned, and they added the porn background music. It would be great if they could get it back to where it had been with quality guests and a solid format.

Full court press was great without Norma Wick. Jack Armstrong, Eric Smith were great on that show. Plus i disliked Norma Wick anyway.

The format without Norma was impossible to watch, and that background music was impossible to overlook. I can tune out Devlin easy, but put porn music behind Jack's chatter while he's talking to someone in a production truck, and you've got a mess.

And Norma was fine as well. I'm with Fancy there.
