Well Sportsnet is longer...so it's able to go into greater detail and cover more sports....but Don Taylor is censored on Sportsnet...

Do you mean the old Vancouver based, CKVU (before Global) Sportspage?
If so, that was a great show when Don Taylor, John Shorthouse and Dave Randorf were hosting it
It went downhill after Taylor and those guys left, it especially tanked when Sean McCormick came on.
He's a complete idiot-stick.
Speaking of idiots, didn't Little Scotty Rintoul (sp?) help pilot Sportspage into a smokin' hole in the ground?

I'll also take this opportunity to say that I lost a lot of respect for Taylor when, immediately after the Moore/Naslund/Bertuzzi incident (which is what it really should be called because it happened in that order) Taylor jumped up into the driver's seat for the Vancouver media bandwagon to have Bert hung by the neck from the Grouse Mountain Skytram.
He went on and on and on about what a criminal Bertuzzi is and he should be banished forever to a far away land.
It got old real fast.
I once watched a live broadcast of Sportspage from the control room at CKVU back in the late 80's.
Taylor was hosting and he was on fire, everyone in the room was laughing at his very witty comments and delivery.
I wish he could get back to that style, it was very watchable.

I would watch whichever one didn't have Don taylor as a host. Carson, Shorthouse and Randorf were all solid, but I've never really taken to that comb forward ,chipmunk cheeked ,lousy imitation spewing, lacrosse pimping idiot from burnaby.

Never saw Sporspage (BC only I presume) and Sportsnet sucks balls.I prefer the Score over anything, seeing as those guys are always making me laugh.
