RDS and TSN are owned by CTV... Does this mean RDS and TSN will use the song?

I think that's a reason to love 'em. They're playing a game with CBC and imo it's a rout. They've provided better coverage and while CBC dicked around, they went in and signed the ufa from under there noses.

Personally I care a lot about all of the issues that you listed above. But it doesn't mean I can't find something you find trivial important.

You just don't get it.

It's one of those things the little guy can still hang on to for a feel good moment.

you hear about politics , it's followed by bad news.
you hear about health care, it's followed by bad news.
you hear about education, it's followed by bad news.
you hear the hockey song, it's followed by a hockey game and thats a feel good news.

Good. TSN is better than CBC in every way. If CBC wants to count dollars and cents and leave the song up for grabs, they deserve what they get.

Good on TSN for capitalizing on this and doing what the fans want.

When I first read that CBC wasnt renewing, I said to myself "I wish TSN would acquire the rights" and look what happened!

Im really happy with this move. TSN will give it the respect the song deserves.

That pretty much seals it. I doubt I watch CBC at all next year Jim Hughson is calling the game or there is no other choice.

TSN is such a joke, they don't deserve the song.

This is song is a throwback to all our childhoods. It brings back the memories of staying up late on Saturdays to watch the third period of Habs / Hartford on SRC. It brings back

This thing is so energetic it made intermission away scores reports EXCITING when the right announcer did them with it as the background song.

I think this song is excitement. Good hockey is excitement.

Like Dave Morissette said:

"When I lined up on the ice for my first game with the Canadiens, the national anthem was playing but all I was hearing in my head was the Hockey Song."
