Every email helps. Inundate them with emails. When they realize how many of us they've p*ssed off, maybe they'll do something about it!

I wasn't quite as polite as you guys here.

Quote:
Why is there no coverage of this game? It's being played in Ottawa, not like you have to go traipsing all over hell's half acre to set it up. There's not even any local/regional
coverage. How stupid is that?

I, unfortunately live in Toronto, and my only access to Sens games is through Center Ice
which picks up its feed from other broadcasters. Since CBC has the rights to all games on Saturday night I hold you completely responsibile for screwing up my evening.

Why you discriminate against the Sens is beyond me. At least give local coverage and then I can pick it up. You're so Leafcentric it's unbelievable. All Leafs all the time. Makes me sick. Bad enough I have to live in Toronto. Watching the Sens is one of my greatest
pleasures in life and because of your stupidity I have to go without seeing them tonight.

It's no bloody wonder that CBC is going down the tubes. Why not give people what they want? Hockey on Saturday night is like a religion. Why not cover all the teams? Not everyone is a Leaf fan. You have the resources to do it, you choose not to. If it's a budget thing, cut from somewhere else, not hockey coverage. Use your heads for once.

A disgusted Sens fan.

I understand your commitment to Toronto hockey, you are a company who needs to cater to the larger markets. However, you are also the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, not the Toronto Broadcasting Corporation. I find it very unprofessional that any Canadian should be totally cut off from watching their team play due to your monopoly on Saturday Night Hockey coverage. There is no excuse for this. Not only are you offending many people by your actions, or lack there of, you are preventing other markets, such as Atlanta, from being able to have any hope of seeing their team play as they do not have the same local market strength we Canadians take for granted. This means you are also stunting the spread of Canadian values and passion.

I am very disappointed in the CBC, though it is not a surprise. I feel more should be done to rectify these situations; what is being done goes against many things I thought Canada was supposed to represent.


Sincerely,

A very upset Canadian

Like I said in the other thread email HNIC sponsors. CBC is screwing them as well and you can also hold them responsible and ask them to put pressure on CBC to cover more viewers

So I got friends from Toronto coming down for the weekend who are big Sens fans and we got nowhere to watch the damn game. This is pathetic. I e-mailed CBC and was quite nasty to them, I think it's totally unacceptable.

Wanna see Kovalchuk and the red hot Thrashers who are off to a good start. This sucks!!

Just looked over our broadcast schedule, even worse than I thought. Tons of Saturday games not being shown, including two Sabres games.

After tonight, seven games aren't going to be on TV in the Ottawa region. Five of them are Saturday games.

I wonder if CBC was expecting this kind out backlash from Sens fans. You have to think they'll do something about this and throw another game or two on Saturday nights. That's just truly sad that there's two Sabres games not being broadcast either. What the hell is wrong with them??

Here is hoping for an Ottawa win and for the defense to be able to contain Kovalchuk.

They have been getting this type of backlash for years. I am sure they were expecting it.

To whom it may concern,

I would like to complain about the lack of a broadcast for tonight's Ottawa Senators game. I know the CBC holds the rights to all saturday night games and I find it unacceptable to prevent us from watching our team play at all, much less on the traditional day to do so!

A regional broadcast, at the very least, should have been done by the CBC crew, since your contract with the NHL prevents other stations from doing so. We are now stuck watching the Maple Leafs once again.

No canadian hockey fan should be unable to watch his own team play on a saturday night, and it is our own government funded station that is ensuring it happens over and over again. Very disappointing.

Happy thanksgiving!
A Sens fan
Done and done.

You can add this to the Roy Mlakar list of screw-ups. Prior to inking the new CBC contract he(the NHL) had every chance to lobby the league, get them to pass the rights for any Saturday games not shown to other broadcasters (TSN,Sportsnet).

Instead we ended up with a 1990 type contract with blackouts and many local games not shown. Glad to see the NHL continues to lead the way into the future....

What a shame, I was so excited, and now I'm just gonna go into work for the evening instead. **** the Leafs, I refuse to watch CBCs monopoly coverage of my most hated team.

Edit: Complaint sent, and I was not nice about it.
