Gary Bettman and the greedy NHL BOG have once again put the fans a distant second in their haste to make a buck, or a few billion.
The new exclusive deal with the B grade wannabe sports network, Rogers SportsNet for the national rights to NHL hockey - effectively kills hockey on TSN... and with that, very likely spells the end of specialty channels such as TSN Jets.
Fear not Leafs fans, SportsNet has cut a sub-contract with CBC to allow HNIC to remain on the air Saturday nights.
This wouldn't be such a big concern if SportsNet was not one small step above minor league/amateur level.
Hopefully this will force them to bring up the program quality and hire pro personnel now.
