    The Blue Jays are dead – killed by their owners. Whoever thought-up lets charge them more to watch our games should be terminated for being so stupid. I will never have a Rogers product again. I don’t need the Jays I have the Yankees.

    The Blue Jays are far from dead-

    It’s so easy to criticize large companies…

    How soon we forget that TSN 2 needed to do exactly the same thing to get cable companies to put their new channel up as well…

    I cannot believe that the CRTC approved this channel. There isn’t enough programming on the existing channels to possibly justify adding yet another pay sports channel. Unfortunately, thanks to all of the lemming hockey fans, they’ll have no trouble finding enough suckers willing to fork out the extra bucks to get their fix. I wish Shaw and Telus had stuck to their guns and simply refused to pay for SN One.
