CBC Adds Canucks-Preds game

Post by Island Nucklehead » Tue Oct 17, 2006 9:13 am

Saturday, just for us special BC folks, CBC will air the Canucks-Predators game at 8pm EDT. We'll get the first hour of Rangers-Leafs then it'll swap over. Looks like since we're not in the basement as predicted there's more reason to show our games!

Not to fear, Island Canucklehead, I'll be at the game (unless the Cardinals beat the Mets in the NLCS), and will file a fearless report not far from the Gaylord Entertainment Center!

Thanks you Eastern CBC Gods for doing what you are supposed to do and serve all regions of the friggin country. Maybe they are realizing that they may lose the rights to hockey in the next couple of years and are pretending to care about the West. Better late than never I guess.

It's retarded how the CBC ignores the rest of the country. I'm sick of watching nothing but Leafs games. Actually I'd have to say TSN does it as well. Tonight is a prime example, Flames and Habs would be a good game to watch, but yet they opt for the Sabres and Flyers. I'm assuming Sportsnet has the rights to tonights Canucks/Oilers game otherwise I would have made the same argument.
GO CANUCKS GO !!!

At least CBC isn't as bad as TSN.

CBC is much worse then TSN......TSN has at least every Canadian team on 6 times, where as the National game (that being the early one) is 90% of the time Toronto. There's a lot of times Ottawa or Montreal is involved in a better game but they put on the Leafs. For example, Montreal is playing Colorado this week-end (Theordore's return) and Ottawa is playing New Jersey, 2 better games in my opinion, BUT the Leafs/Rangers game will be the national game. Once again, Leafs get the attention.

I would much rather watch Jagr, Shanahan and The NEW YORK Rangers... then a crappy Av's team and a so-so Habs team


Sens are struggling they are not better then the Leafs...and no one cares about New Jersey.

I would rather watch the Rangers high powered offense and Mats Sundin and the Leafs than...... Christobal Huet and the Habs

Is it only being broadcasted in BC? Or do we miserable Albertans get to see the SECOND Canucks game on CBC this year as well?...

I remember before CBC did double-headers (and before all-sports networks came to Canada), Canucks fans in the East might have been lucky to have seen two or three Canucks regular-season games a year, and that was usually when they were playing the Leafs or the Canadiens.

Wrong. Before Sportsnet came along, TSN completely ignored the west. There is a reason they were called the TORONTO Sports Network. Only now is TSN showing the west some love.

I didn't have a problem with that. I don't normally see those two teams play so I loved to watch the game, I'm tired of seeing the mediocre Canadian teams over and over again.

I'm not saying TSN is good, but at least they're showing at least 6 games of each Canadian team.

Where as the CBC caters to Toronto games first, and claim to be unbiased because they show other teams but only in their region. WHat pisses me more about them is when the Canucks have a Saturday game, and one of the Alberta teams has a game as well, BC is the only region to get the Canucks game.
