Just wondering if anyone thinks that the Leafs, if purchased by Rogers, would be more likely to relinquish their de facto veto over another team in the southern ontario market. There may be 2 reasons that I can think of. As a publicly traded company with financial responsibility to the shareholders, would it be financially beneficial to take the approximate $100 million windfall they would reap from the 2nd southern ontario team (SO2), considering that it would likely not affect their profitability even with the presence of an SO2? One of the arguments that is often brought up is that an SO2 team wouldn't affect the Leafs, but might affect the raptors. This doesn't necessarily have to be true, as scheduling can be accomodated for all 3 teams. For instance, the raptors play a lot of sunday afternoon games. If the SO2 team made sunday night their 'regular' night, then that's a good starting framework to have all 3 teams playing at different times. The other factor is that rogers is obviously among other things a tv company, and their main reason for purchasing mlse is to have teams to feed their tv content. If they were to allow an SO2 team in the league under the condition that rogers gets the SO2 teams tv rights, then that would be another huge benefit. Thoughts?
