Renaud Lavoie leaves RDS to join TVA Sports
 
Whoa. RDS loses a ton of credibility imo.

@TVASports:

Wow. That's just awful for RDS. Loses their main insider and at the same time, one of the few people bringing any semblance of professionalism to the network. Ouch.

I hope that it can only be good for everyone. Let us hope that RDS learns that they are a freaking joke and that they need to bring their game up.

It might just have been the reason for which Renaud left. Tired of the ******** childish broadcasting quality RDS perpetuates.

As far as I know, they can clean house at that station. Maybe keep Pierre around. That's about it.

It's all about appearance. This is a much more brutal move for Lavoie than it is a bad loss for RDS.

Grand larceny!

RDS > TVA Sport...bad move by Renaud

Oh man. This means Luc Gelinas will do more interviews? :(

He went to TVA Sports :laugh: I doubt he cares about the quality of the broadcast.

Can't wait to see who RDS tries to promote as their ''informateur hockey'' now. Ugh.

EDIT: I could see LeBrun being on RDS a lot more to take over the role.

I'm a bit surprised that TVA added another ''insider'' since Pedneault already tries to be one. At some point though, TVA needs to deliver actual good pro sports content to be truly worth watching, not just stuff I can watch on Sportsnet.

The Russian General 08-07-2013 04:51 PM

TVA Sports is still new and they have a lot of work to do to improve the quality of their network. That said, bringing a guy like Lavoie can only help.

Huge loss for RDS.

CrAzYNiNe 08-07-2013 04:53 PM

You all still watch RDS? I stopped watching when they posted an article about Pacioretty, where he was being insulted by the writer. The writer was saying it was about time he was sent down and a lot of other non sense. I can't remember who wrote the article but I do remember it being taken down shortly after.

It was posted on the website, but anything RDS I boycott

He left for the $$$

Their ratings are awful, really really bad. They don't compete with RDS at all in any way. His salary will be much better, that's for sure, but that's the only positive point.

Lars Mon Amour 08-07-2013 04:55 PM

Holy ****, it made me jump when I saw this on Twitter! It's kinda hard to believe...

JayKing 08-07-2013 05:00 PM

Terrible for both sides, but I feel like it's worse for Renaud.

Hannibal 08-07-2013 05:01 PM

Bad move for RDS and terrible move by Lavoie!!

attachetatuque 08-07-2013 05:04 PM

Meh, don't really care for RDS. They are a total joke. I haven't given TVA Sport much time, so don't really care much. Can't say I'm a fan of Lavoie. Sure, he knows the right dudes and can answer text messages, but I've always found him quite annoying.

FrontierPsyCHiatrist* 08-07-2013 05:16 PM

My hate for TVA Sport is growing every day... and this move won't help :(

JackZap 08-07-2013 05:31 PM

Surprised they let him keep his twitter feed

shamrun 08-07-2013 05:31 PM

I can only assume that TVA sport spent a lot of money to attract him. He had (IMO) a nice gig at RDS. Maybe TVA offered first class accommodations when he travels to places lol. Anyways...RDS will need to replace him with someone that has real contacts.

MXD 08-07-2013 05:32 PM

From where I'm from, that's called a lose-lose move.

VanNistelrooy 08-07-2013 05:33 PM

Ma parole!

Crimson Skorpion 08-07-2013 05:33 PM

Has to be about money. What else could there be? Less politics, maybe. Lighter work load, perhaps. Still, sucks for RDS.
