Of course we all know Ottawa has a huge french speaking population and they NEVER take the Hab games off of TV ever. Which has put most of the Ottawa based Leaf fans in a corner.
Incorrect. If you want to cry that Leaf fans can't watch Leaf games in Ottawa you can take your complaint directly to the Leafs. It's their fault the games aren't shown.
Ottawa has said that it will show the games on the condition that when Toronto isn't playing the Sens are able to broadcast in the GTA. The Leafs said no thanks, so Ottawa said fine, but we aren't going to show your games in Ottawa.
In the case of Montreal, the reciprocal agreement went ahead without a problem.
