I posted this on twitter earlier, but various folks are telling me that TSN is about to announce an exclusive deal with the NFL for broadcast rights to games in Canada. Various reports are conflicting this morning on what the deal will mean. I’m told that Thursday night games will be on TSN. I’m trying to get more info before elaborating.
Several people alluded to the fact that the deal with James Duthie would see his scope expanded beyond hockey and it appears that nfl football is on his horizon.
Meanwhile, the stories making the rounds right now about the Rogers NHL deal really went down are, if true quite amazing. I’m waiting for a couple more sources to confirm before saying more.
