TSN2/Rogers theory?

I saw this on another board and it makes alot of sense.TSN/TSN2 are part of the CTV Broadcasting co. which is own by BELL?The Ontario pention plan has recently bought BELL.It sounds to me like the OTPP might be playing hardball to stick it to Rogers and try to lure some of their customers over to Bell.

On the other hand Rogers has a bunch of channels in direct competition with TSN. There is so much conflict of interest that it's ridiculous. And yet we have nothing we can do in the face of such a cartel.

This is totally an MLSE fault. They shouldn't have sold the distribution rights to their product without first making sure their target audience actually gets access to the said product. MLSE lawyers must get involved ASAP, up to and including voiding their broadcasting contract with the TSN altogether and moving the games to different channels. RapsTV even, if that's what it takes.

At the very least, they could re-broadcast games on Raps TV on Rogers in parallel with TSN2 and fuck the exclusivity.

If Rogers never gets TSN2 MLSE will lose a lot of money, which I know no company wants to happen
