    The greatest closer in the game over the past 15 years has pitched his final home game at Yankee Stadium tonight and not one of Canada’s two sports networks show the game? Instead they show NFL on Sportsnet East, Ontario, West + Pacific. And they show the Blue Jays on not one but two of their networks?

    TSN + Sportsnet dropped the ball (no pun intended) with me, tonight.

    Darrell = terrible TV executive.

    NFL game dwarfs whatever ratings a Rays/Yankees game gets. This is why we have highlight shows. Watch it there.

    TSN couldn’t show it if it wanted to, and Sportsnet has a deal with the NFL.

    So much for dropping the ball.

    Opinions here have been awesome lately. Also with Rivera, there’d be no guarantee that he would, what’s the word I’m looking for, play.

    I understand all of what you said (above) but to show the Blue Jays on “TWO” Sportsnet channels (Sportsnet One + Sportsnet 360)!?! I thought the idea of having acquired the Score was so that Sportsnet could show multiple “different” sports games and cater to their fans?

    Is that really necessary, for a last place team who’s game had no level of sports excitement at all in whether they lost the game or won against the Baltimore Orioles?

    If anyone thinks that “Robbers” acquired the Score to provide more variety of sports programing must also believe in the tooth fairy and that the Easter Bunny drives a Toyota.

    I don’t know what the timing was like, but one of the SNets – probably 360 – could have broken away to show the end of that game, once they saw Rivera was coming in. Surely someone had to at least have been looking for that. I know it wasn’t necessarily his last potential game, but definitely his last potential at home.

    That said, I wasn’t watching any of that, so for all I know they could have 🙂

    James Mirtle reads the CBA and finds clauses that could help the Leafs (and others). Interesting article.

    Andy Frost’s favourite caller, “Mike in Buffalo”, interviews the always entertaining Bill Watters for 30 minutes. Just as good as any Leafs talk on 590 or 1050.

    Could Damien’s mic not work more often, as what happened during thursday 6 pm hour of pts?

    Rogers has got the Blue Jays so pressed up against their lips – it’s insane how absolute OVERKILL they are about the Blue Jays success or annual failure.

    It also happened on Wednesday with one microphone resulting in Cox changing chairs. You’d think they’d have fixed it before Thursday’s show. The professionalism of “Canada’s most listened to sports talk show presentation”!
