Default Raptors in Punjabi

CBC will broadcast the Raps game against the LA Clippers in Punjabi next week. I think its a cool idea with large segment of fans being Punjabi. I have listened the leafs game in Punjabi and they sound pretty good.

The CBC was just promoting it. It's going to be on a few different channels, including 401 on rogers, which is the sports preview channel.

Because they tried it with the Leafs and it was very successful. CBC also tired Cantonese as well but it didn't work out so well.

Oh balle!!!!

This is kind of cool to get people into the games but i don't see it really helping bring fans out or anything.

Will be funny to listen to the "phrases" when plays are made..cant wait!

most people that speak punjabi or hindi or urdu can generally understand eachothers language.

At least most of those from india/pakistan. Maybe not so much here in canada. I dont speak urdu or hindi but can generally understand what is being said when someone speaks to me in it.

I'm Punjabi as well, and I do have to note that whenever I go to the games there's always a large amount of the audience that looks punjabi/desi
