Want to watch NFL TV? No problem! The Raptors? Suck it!!

The point is, two business giants are, simply, screwing basketball fans in the biggest market in the city. Simple as that. Blame Rogers, blame TSN, blame Maple Leaf Sports but blame someone ‘cause you’re really getting the short end of the stick.

Sucks, doesn’t it?
That's Doug Smith writing in his blog today. And yes, yes it does. It's hard to understand how the optics of this work for Rogers. Extreme Sports went off the air this month. Replace it with TSN2. Done. Ok, so it's probably a little more complicated than that, but come on! Get it done.

Harassing Rogers and TSN (audiencerelations@tsn.ca) with e-mails can't hurt. Since it's publicaly listed I don't feel bad in posting TSN's audience relations phone number either - 416-332-7660.

NOTE: It's just been reported that the Raps go at 6 p.m. tomorrow to avoid Game 5.3 of the World Series.

Tonight's TSN schedule:
8:00pm Cleveland vs Boston
10:30pm Portland vs LA Lakers

Does it not seem like they're even rubbing it in at this point?

TSN has never rubbed anything in its competitors' faces.

Opening night in the NBA, and we on Rogers saw *nothing*. Well, we did see Gary Payton and Chris Webber moving their mouths with Ahmad on NBATV. Shudder.

I would trade my car for ESPN right now.
