Default Watching game on TSN or ABC/ESPN?

First time this series I've seen a game on a diff channel besides TSN, currently on Bell ABC Channel 1211.

So you guys sticking to the usual TSN broadcast or watching Game 7 on ABC/ESPN for a change?

As weird as this may sound, the colour quality is actually different on ABC than TSN. For some reason, on TSN the picture is much clearer. It's like there is a cloudy haze over the ABC signal.

I loved that ad at first. But the repetition is tough. It seems like there are only 8 ads that get run continuously these days. The moosehead ad was killing me for a while. Even with the side boobage.

Outta curiosity, did the ABC commentators make any mention of the questionable calls that happened? I would note that they didn't always go the Nets way either.

I watched the ABC feed to see how biased it would be. It wasn't too bad. They never said anything like "that's just a bad call". Ross got called for a blocking foul and the replay showed that his feet were planted before the contact but Mike Tirico said something like "well his feet were planted but his upper body was moving - it's a 50/50 call".

Small stuff like that and the Tirico "American players in Canada miss the comforts of the US" comment made me roll my eyes sometimes. The comfort of a warm handgun is maybe what he's talking about.

I thought the list of players with US connections was really odd, but then he went on to talk about Toronto in a very positive light in terms of being the 4th largest city in North America and how the players have made something special all on its own. I think the intent was to show how Toronto was no longer afraid of US players not being happy here and needing to rely on european imports.

I was curious to check it out, but I had a sense of loyalty to stick to some classic matt and jack.

I watched the ABC feed in it's entirety.

They were very objective IMO.

Only issue was pronunciation issues with Vas-quez (Hubie) and Sammons (Tirico)
