Thumbs down Sportsnet frustration

What the heck is going on at Sportsnet? Their HD schedule is looking pretty thin these days; in fact, there's nothing listed after the NASCAR race on Nov. 6, no indication anywhere on their site as to whether they'll be carrying any NBA games in HD, no word yet on CHL hockey in HD, and why couldn't they make an effort to do tonight's AHL game from the ACC in HD. We already know they won't be producing any NHL games in HD because of the regional nature of their rights and the the HD channel is national. We already know they won't be doing any Raptors' home games in HD because it seems the pinheads who run the ACC are still stuck in the 1990s.

It is becoming extremely frustrating to be stuck on the sidelines as HD sports coverage explodes south of the border yet seems to be slipping backwards up here: two years ago, Sportsnet did all their Raptors home games in HD, now, nothing; Raptors TV HD is approved, yet won't be broadcasting any of their Raptors games in HD either; TSN is making a token effort with 27 NHL games in HD, yet they choose to show the SD feed of other games they have the rights to and are being produced for other markets in HD.
