According to Sports Business Daily this morning...
Will Greg Proops host this network? Seems a lot of work for one man...
(Sorry, couldn't resist.)
that's the best the marketing dept. can come up with? "VERSUS"? ... geez
Well that makes sense. Get OLN and Center Ice both VERSUS only needing Center Ice to watch the playoffs in years past.
Awful awful name
Whatcha bet folks tune in to hear Bible scriptures hehe... get it?
- eh nevermind...
I don't care if it was called "Steaming Pile of Monkey Dung", if they showed as much hockey as they have been showing, I will still tune in.
I dont know any of you people so I have no shame.....so I will say....that I actually like it
I've totally enjoyed the craptastic quality "simulcasting" OLN has been doing with CBC over these first couple of games ... jesus christ it sucks watching CBC via OLN or Versus
Makes total sense:
Man VERSUS bull.
Survivors VERSUS the island.
Keith Jones VERSUS a collective yawn every time he speaks.
Sounds like a epic name to me. This is something for the ages, I guess.
V-E-R-S-U-S, not V-E-R-S-E-S
I'm so glad I am in Canada. What a joke.
Yeah, what the hell is the Sports Business Daily, anyway?
SBD is a Industry trade paper that is internet published
they also put out the Sports Business Weekly, which is in the print format.
Yikes. I assume it'll be presented as " VS. ".
Horrible choice. OLN is fine.
Except that almost every single idiot sportswriter, and a good portion of the fanbase, insists on continuing to call if the "Outdoor Life Network", a name they havent been for some time...
OLN is brutal. "The NHL on the Outdoor Life Network!!!" Brilliant....
Change is good in this case.
Why not Comcast Sportsnet? Sometimes the simplest solution is the best.
Probably too similiar to Foxsportsnet...
And that name for a network is very vanilla.
You can even leave out the "Net."
Versus. That's just lame. They really don't have anyone to tell them that's lame?
I was just hoping for CSN, unless that's already taken.
So your choice for a National Sports Channel would be the name of a corporation followed by the word "sports".
Hmmm, lots of branding opportunities there...
