It's the "convergence of the medias", To me, it's stupid monopoly.
Hey boys, dont talk about things you dont know.

Le club de hockey Les Canadiens was looking for a partner to cover ALL games and SRC was not ready to go with that idea. They only want to show the saturday games because it's getting more people and for the easy reason that it's a simple schedule... you dont have to move talkshow and teleseries around when game are one week the monday next week the wednesday.

As a Telecaster it's perfectly normal that if RDS was showcasing the complicated game of the week they should also get the easy game of every saturday. It's just plain logic.

And stop crying about having to pay to watch the game.. you pay for everyting in life.. and I consider paying 10$ a month is worth a lot more then enduring the Sauvageau every saturday.

To Resume : SRC outbid themself by not wanting the whole Shebang.
