    Does Rogers put something into its water that turns all employees into shills.

    Danny Dichio ‏@DannyDichio
    Excited to be part of Sportsnet’s 16th season of Premier League coverage with @SNGerryDobson @craigforrest1. Best coverage in North America!!

    Obviously if your coverage includes Dobson and Forrest it can’t be the best in North America (or Toronto for that matter). That said, Dichio was quite good today. He almost made Dobson and Forrest seem like they were alive. I said almost. Unfortunately for Dichio, it’s 1 against 3 (KJ, DeVos and Wileman).

    How did Kansas City get a better soccer stadium than Toronto?

    Being fully enclosed and having a partial roof makes a big difference as many smaller EPL grounds also show. First the Skydome now BMO, we’re always stuck with third rate structures.

    What network employees DON’T say things like ‘join me on TSN/Sportsnet/CBC/NBC etc for the best coverage there is!’

    He’s not a media reporter or something. He’s promoting his own show.

    Regarding BMO Field – yeah, it needs some work. I find in Toronto, we tend to get 2nd rate arenas and stadium that improve over time.

    Look at the ACC. Try to find clips on YouTube of when it opened. It looked so bland – they’ve done some major improvements in and out of the arena. Same with the Rogers Centre (even though it’s still the worst stadium in baseball).

    BMO Field is fun to attend, but it always strikes me as a stadium that was built quickly and possibly cheaper than other stadiums because they didn’t think this MLS thing would fly. Well, the league appears to be solid so they should renovate it.

    Remember that the city still owns BMO Field, not MLSE. I would assume that if MLSE is going to spend a lot of money for a better soccer stadium, it would likely only happen after they were allowed to buy BMO Field, or it would be an entirely new stadium somewhere else.

    It still annoys me how no one is the media bothers to pick up on the fact that Canadians are shut out of watching La Liga (Spanish football). Canada is the only free or unfree country in the world that can’t watch Barcelona vs Real Madrid legally due to Beinsports owning North American rights to Spanish, French, and Italian soccer but not having a channel up here or willing to sub license the rights.

    When it comes to the world beyond local sports teams and the NHL our media takes all its cues and gets all its talking points from ESPN and other US media outlets. Since US medias ignore Europe (and every other continent) there’s little chance of our old guard even noticing Spanish soccer. It’s hard to imagine the likes of John Shannon having an informative discussion of the subject.
