But it does appear CBC is going downhill
Neither of which is on the CBC.

Telefilm and CBC are two different things.

CBCs hockey coverage has been slipping big time over the past few years. Its decisions such as this that boggle the mind. They keep mister senility himself but not a song that is more cherished that a man in wacky suits. Anyways, I am not too displeased. I almost exclusively watch my hockey on RDS even though I have difficulties in understanding French.

Yet look what we have today - SRC is out of the hockey picture all together, RDS is doing incredible business coast to coast, and Canadiens fans couldn't be happier.

3/11/2006 convinced me that HNIC is beyond saving. Let it - and CBC television - die.
I watch all my Habs hockey on RDS even if the game is on CBC. Cant stand the coverage on CBC. Don Cherry = . He irritates the hell out of me.

BTW, what happened on that date?

Boom-Boom Geoffrion's number was retired and CBC did not show the ceremony at all. One of the most emotional sports-related 'events' (terrible word to use, I know, but I can't think of a better one at the moment) I've seen as his family was all there and he had passed away that day.

I just don't think that tax dollars should pay for a TV station. I'd rather we spend that money on more meaningful things.

I wonder what the result would be if someone was to start a "should public dollars stop founding CBC" poll on this site.
So, you would prefer your news to come from private corporations? You would prefer there to be no publically funded, publically controlled (The public in Canada just does a very, very pathetic job getting their voice across and allows the minority interest groups who know how to do it to control that) television in Canada?

Some people need to consider that, you know, its not just Hockey on CBC.

It's a god damn hockey board. If I want to talk health care I dont do it here....
Not talking about this board, its in every fricken paper and the front page of Yahoo. The National starts off with this news as its lead story, and finishes with one of our soldiers dying. Its gotten the nation more riled up than sending our men and women to Afghanistan.

You haven't seen this retarded country in this much of an uproar since Ron MacLean's contract wasn't renewed in 2002.

That jogged my memory. I remember having to watch that emotional ceremony on RDS. No mention of it on CBC.

Hockey is a huge part of the countrie's identity. The Hockey Night In Canada theme rivals our natinal anthem in popularity. Anything that affects in anyway the country identy or perception of it will cause interest.

I think this is slightly exaggerated, the song isn't that old compared to the history of HNIC.

So, we agree.. dead soldiers don't effect people like HNIC. What a country we live in.

Now, as to the contents of what's on it, I think a lot of what they do fund is crap, which is a flaw. But that's largely personal taste.

I think they should actually get out of the news business and get into the entertainment business. Show movies, TV shows, comedians, opinion, talk shows, sports, etc. from Canada and Canadians only.

Too often, they show Disney movies and concentrate on news, which while interesting and I am fully convinced independent, is not the place of a public broadcaster in my opinion.
I would argue that the private sector can provide most, if not all things better than the public one, and that a free-market TV environment is best for the artists and the viewers.

Instead of having a panel of government employees decide what is worth broadcasting and what isn't, I think the viewers who pay for the entertainment should do it via the free-market.

Public entertainment is nice and all, but it raises taxes and makes it less likely for an individual to spend money investing in a private domain. CTV/TSN/TSN are all private and offer much better quality than CBC, having more of them is better for everyone, including the artists that would have depended on CBC before.

Here's my last point, all government is force, it forces you to do certain things and act a certain way to keep an free and civil society, do you think forcing citizens to provide entertainment falls into that category ?

Would it be ok with you if the company who owns CTV sent out a bill to everyone in Canada, regardless if they receive it or not, forcing them to pay for their expenses ? And if no, then why are you ok with the CBC doing the same thing ?

Hockey is the common thread of this nation. Its Canada's religion through and through.

And HNIC was its vaticant and for the longest time. So accept the fact that the masses are very interested in what goes on in regards to the institution that brough live hockey to every television accross this great nation of ours.

As for the retarded comment, hockey is our sport...check out the soccer nations during the world cup or as is at the present time, Euro Cup. They go ape **** over all that involves their clubs/nations/players/etc

If you loathe this country so much, you have a couple hundred others to choose from.

First CBC loses Cuthbert, then the sacred HNIC song.

Cherry will retire and they'll be forced to get Pat Quinn to be the new Coach in the Corner.

CTV acquiring the theme is a great development, IMO, since almost all the games I watch are on either RDS or TSN. The only time I ever watch HNIC are playoffs and the odd game when the Leafs aren't playing at 7 pm.

CBC dropped the ball big time, and they look like fools. You can't even make the money argument, since they're paying Don Cherry 7 figures to spew racist crap and ignorance.

My bet on the new CBC theme: an embarrassing hard rock version of the Stompin Tom Connors hockey song.

I love the country, shake my head at the people who can't live without a theme song. OMG! Change! Change! Not change! How will I go on with a new song opening HNIC!

I've been watching hockey since the 60's and i have heard that tune too often to even guess how many times. However, I really don't care if they play it before games or not. It is window dressing. And if the 2.5mm price tag that was asked for was correct, I can't say I blame CBC for letting the option slide

It's just not that important

I mean is somebody going to watch more hockey elsewhere just because the tune is played there? It will always be the hockey for me

Agreed...but watch out for the bleeding hearts who love the song as much as the game...all this foolishness boggles my mind, and I have been a fan for 40 years of the Habs, but honestly couldn't care less what tune is playing for the network who broadcasts...

This couldn't have worked out better. Hockey's best theme song moving to a far superior network in which audiences only continue to grow. Being able to hear it on a nightly basis from now on, wicked.
