Default RapsTV Frustrations!

I'm so sick of the pre and post game personalities.
Also, how can they not be embarassed by the Full Court Press program, with the cheesy soundtrack, dude in the control room cam. There's nothing wrong with being amateur, I guess if you're creative about it, but the sad thing here is that they probably actually think they're cutting edge. or even sadder, that this is the best they can do with the paltry budget they've been given by the trillionaires at MLSE.
This guy articulates my frustrations with the broadcast, and some of the hinderances at developing the raps as "Canada's team" best.

I also think, interestingly, that my wife got the guy from the frank's red hot commercials mixed up with paul johnson the other night.

Yeah, only time that I thoroughly enjoy their pre and post game shows is when Jack makes a cameo appearance. Paul Johnson and Sherman Hamilton are so dry and boring to listen too, its almost as bad as sitting through analysis from Rod Black and Brian Heeney on TSN.

I totally agree! The content sucks this year... is anyone else sick of the double interviews in the post up show? They interview guys once which is cool , and then play the exact same footage 15 mins later!!! What the hell is up with that?

The Full Court Press show is a joke, and floor level now has the Swirsk on vocals but they left the 'with norma wyck' in the graphics. Pathetic!

Full Court Press is unwatchable right now... the 'idea' to have a guy in the control room is soooo bad that is not even funny... if they gave camera, microphone and $10 to bunch of 12 year olds they would do a better job.

+1. I watched FCP the last few years a lot because it WAS actually interesting with their takes on the stuff around the league mostly. Dan Gladman is a huge pansy douchebag and makes for a horrible host, and the control room thing is a joke. WTF were they thinking? They shoulda got Cabbie to host that show or something.

It makes you wonder why they got rid of Norma to not replace her with anyone. Pathetic. Reminds me of where i work... anything to save a buck.

FCP sucks because there is no Norma, there is no Press, and there is that background music that just reminds me of cheap porn.

I've definitely been watching a lot less of this channel in general.
