TSN will become the main NFL network in Canada. They already have a lock on the CFL. More soccer. I expect more U.S. college stuff. Regional NHL hockey. I suspect they'll do just fine.

Good idea. I'll cancel SN World for the summer. They have nothing I want in the summer. Won't resubscribe until there's a must-see match during the season. With TSN having more games and some on NBC,...
