The league needs to be recording the feeds from all the production cameras in the arena for each game from now on. The system needs to be overhauled. And they need to take a commercial break and give Toronto enough time.
Relying on 3rd parties is fine... as long as the contracts that are drawn up have some teeth to economically punish stations that do what FSN did. It doesn't sound like that happened.
