Expect Sportsnet to be more open to regional interests, and less likely to sign the MacLean/Cherry gong show.... if they get the rights.


From the article.....

Bettman (that little prick) wrote:“There's probably no more iconic brands in Canada than the CBC, Hockey Night in Canada and the NHL,” he said. “That accounts for 60 years of a great relationship, which is unprecedented because we work so well together.”


That can be paraphrased as, "I can stick my dick so far up CBC's ass and they will obligingly take it, write it off as great chemistry between business partners, and then pay me more money to keep doing it because they know that they would lose a fortune if the NHL wasn't a part of their broadcast every Saturday night."
