I'll still try to catch the trade deadline on TSN if I'm not busy that day
I miss the TSN panel duthie is great.
However this just proves my point further....how many years in a row has duthie joked about how there's no big trades and he wants someone to pick up the phone.
It seems that's all he says for the first four hours while they highlight someone like Matt Martin moving teams and they list players that could be on the move and almost none matter....it's just boring.
I love July first give me that day over deadline any day yet that barely gets coverage.
I heard the deadline show this year was going to be humongous big
The biggest ever from anyone ever. Some dishonest media so dishonest! Say it's not that humongous big but it is! Ask anyone! I was just asking my people great people by the way so unfair how they say we're all insane on twitter about how big it'll be and it's just so totally huge!! So totally dishonest how CNN doesn't say it's gonna be that big I hate CNN and watched it for ten solid hours yesterday just to confirm I hate it nothing good said about me. Huge trade deadline show this year. The biglyest!
Coverage starting at 6 AM (RDS does this) is excessive as no deals happen until much later. However, like someone here said, it's not like there's anything better to have on TV.
Where I really wish they would step up their game is the draft coverage, especially round 2. I don't understand why they fill that coverage with irrelevent interviews instead of discussing each and every single pick made as they happen (and trades as well). No network has done anything to address this yet and I feel like it's long overdue (we should start a petition or something).
Anyhow, trade deadline is #3 behind the draft and July 1st for me in termes of hype.
