Exclamation Sportsnet to air the NBA and the Raptors again. CBC and The Score are out.

Say what you will about Sportsnet, but I missed having all the other NBA west coast games on late at night.
Also, this presumably means more Jack and less Leo.

Rogers Sportsnet, which got out of the basketball business three years ago, is getting back in.

Sources say the channel is about to finalize a three-year deal that will give it 35 Toronto Raptors games per season, as well as other National Basketball Association games. The 35 games will come at the expense of the CBC and The Score, neither of which will carry the Raptors next year.

TSN and TSN2 will share the remaining 47 Raptors games.

All games will be carried nationally, which may mean some of the games will be aired on a yet unlaunched Sportsnet channel.

Shame. I also enjoy The Score's broadcasts.
However, if it means more Jack and less Leo, I'm all for it!

I like Sportsnet, they show some quality HD programming. CBC was alright, and I enjoyed the highlights during timeouts on the Score. I prefer if games from TSN/TSN2 were gone though, don't like TSN's broadcasts (no highlights during timeouts, and plus personally i don't have HD for those channels)

Really? Sportsnet 2? If it comes out it better be for free... Otherwise that's like half the season listening to the radio

I liked The Score's coverage quite a bit, but this is another in a long stretch of bad signs for the station.

Show the games and as I recalled before Snet showed more. So a win for me. I could really care less about extended coverage thats were I usually shut the tv off and go to sleep.

Hey maybe the score will show more NCAA that would kick ass
