Since the beginning of the season, CBC has been listed in the Sens broadast schedual as playing tonights Sens-Sabres game. This week there was a condescending little blurb in the paper saying first that the game was cancelled - then another saying that they had never planned to play it in the first place. I guess what they meant to say is that they never intended to air it, despite initially putting it on the schedual. Then - the excuses. Its not a home game! it is from the States and more expensve. Okay-next Satudary the Sens play the Flyers, an Ottawa home game. Even the CBC must have known something about the history of these two teams and that they would be battling it out for lead in the Conference. But no. HNIC sees it as their raison d'etre to promote the Leafs relentlessly,game in game out, year in year out, so the game will not be shown ,even regionally(airing it nationally would, of course,be out of the question for HNIC) If they dont want to play the Sens on Saturday.nights, and it certainly seems that they don't (unless of course, they are playing the Leafs )they must give up their rights to play the Sens and let TSN or Sporstnet-or anyone else for that matter-step in.
