Exclamation Rogers & TSN2 Update

It's starting to look more and more bleak guys.

I talked to a couple of people in the middle of last week and there had been no movement on the impasse. Rogers is being intractable in the talks, Iím told. TSN has somehow convinced just about every other cable and satellite broadcaster in the country to take TSN2, Rogers is the lone holdout.

Figure out whoís the villain in this travesty yet?

Iím looking directly at Rogers. And you should be, too.

Iím going to try to get someone, anyone, on the record over there this week because I want to hear what their explanation is. Gimme a day or two to try and track it down.

But for now, make plans to go somewhere next Sunday to see the game Ďcause you probably wonít be able to sit in your Toronto house and see it.

Why should ROgers have to include TSN2 in their packaging. Hockey-crazy TSN can go sit on a butt-end. THe fact that the game is on their second station makes them the villain in my mind.

Because Roger's own hockey-crazy Sportsnet decided to not show the Raptors or NBA games anymore.

TSN put a Hockey Game on second network? LOL I worked there I would say hell could freeze over. Half the NHL could go bankrupt and they still would not do that. But I do agree TSN is part of the blame they all are really it starts with the Raps allowing this to happen in the contract they signed off on.

I'm guessing they might! If not Sunday then at least down the road if things don't get resolved!

Man, that's just depressing. Please delete if this Q cannot be asked, but can we get a streaming (??) something of the game somewhere.

Yeah, check the game threads on those days and we usually have steaming options available then.

Cheers mate. Fuck it all, if I can't see the game on TV, I might as well go to the lab., do some work, and watch the game on the internet. Bah.

The best you can do as a Raptors fan is to find out the email address of those who represent Rogers for TSN2 negotiations and send them the well-known "message" (cursing, cursing, cursing ... )
