If the league brass and the PA can't get their collective heads out of their collective butthole, all the teams will get ZERO games televised by CBC.
(Then Ron MacLean might need to moonlight over at the National or something. :emot-parrot: )

People who label others as bandwagoners, people who tell other people "how" to cheer for their team, "how" they should act or what they should wear to "support" their team, people who only want to hear positive thoughts and don't want to read about how the team can do better - these are people who are insecure and uncomfortable within their own skin.

I'll support my team the way I choose, thank you very much. You can choose to support your team the way you want to, and I won't judge you on it as long as you don't try to force your beliefs on me. I'll also be quick to point out where I think the team can do better, because identifying that there is a problem is the first step to fixing it; denying or ignoring a problem won't solve anything.

Go Canucks Go.

just to comment on my own post, I could care less if the Canucks are broadcast nationally or on the CBC. All I want is to watch them on Saturday Night.

I used to love Canucks games on CBC on Saturday nights before. Now with Mark Lee, Kevin Weekes, Ron MacLean, etc. it is unwatchable.

Think it's a joke that the Sens get 18 games and the Jets get 21 games on CBC while the Canucks only get 15. Both of those markets don't get come near the Canucks in ratings.

Didn't we have quite a few more national tv games 2 years ago? It seems that the Jets have taken away some of our games <_<

TSN is also a national broadcast, and one where I would MUCH rather watch the canucks. Save for the exceptional commentary of Jim Hughson, the network has 0 personalities I like.

i have posted this before...and i will say it again. it is all about regions and truck deployments.
...regional broadcasts.

CBC has 1 time slot for the 7pm game because it only accouts for BC/AB/Sask, everyone else is roughly 3 hours ahead. No one in Toronoto/Ottawa/Maritimes will stay up to watch a 7PM PST broadcast so why would they broadcast 2+.

Montreal and Ottawa will probably share their truck, Toronto will probably get their own, and Winnipeg with probably get their own.
Vancouver, Edmonton and Calgary will share for the West.

This makes it so at least 2 games will be available for watch during Eastern Prime time.

Makes much more sense. Why would CBC show 2 PST games..say Calgary vs New Jersey (broadcast Nation wide) and then show Vancouver vs Columbus (BC&Yukon only)

Winnipeg would probably get their own because they are a regional market since their timezone is Central Time. aka 7PM CT is 8 EST and 5 PST.

Feminism will be outlawed. Mostly because it's a backwards idiotic viewpoint that doesn't serve any real progressive purpose.

Hate CBC. Makes our games un-watchable. Defiantly against the Prairie teams. Kevein Weekes was a bad goalie, he is a worst commentator. He makes me want to kill myself with his dullness.

Cbc is awful. Mark Lee is the worst play by play announcer. How he got that job just amazes me. You got PJ Stock doesn't know jack all and that's surprising considering he is a former nhler. Don Cherry is over the hill and basically senile with all his wtf rants.
Jim Hughson is the biggest Canuck homer and his bias turns me off. Casey Campbell... ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Another awful hire.

TSN should show all the Canucks games. Love their coverage. They actually know their sh*t!

I don't care about CBC; they suck. It's a shame that we only get 10 TSN games, though.

Kevin Weekes may be a likeable guy in person. But he goes speechless too often in key situations and glorious moments. Remember Alex Edler's end-to-end goal? All he could muster was... [silence] ho ho ho...wow....[more silence]...
