  • The GREAT Walter White

    TV ratings down? Did everyone like how when the game ended last night and it went right to the road to the Winter Classic on tsn. one of the few times I didn’t mind that, didn’t want to dwell on the loss…

    Still though, how often would a leafs game be telecast on tsn and not have a post game show? lol.

      I am a Leaf fan but I agree with you. If you are being treated as a 2nd class fan then it is wrong.

      Here are two hot links for making complaints to TSN. They do not ignor them. They make decisions on how many complaints they receive.

      If you decide to send them some feedback I suggest you try to keep it professional looking.

    Love the sites, love the content, have been reading and commenting for years here.

    But the ads and stuff are absolutely killing my iPhone’s browsers, and it’s getting worse rather than better. I’m having to interrupt the page as it loads before the ads come up, and routinely have to refresh pages multiple times before i can comment or even finish reading an article.

    I get that you guys have bills to pay, and I’m glad to do what I can, but I’m far less active than I used to be on the Nations Network sites because they are becoming a pain in the butt to read. I guarantee you I wouldn’t be a regular here if the first article I read had crashed my phone’s browser twice, but It took three tries just to post this comment.

    I don’t know if it’s just me, but I have an iPhone I just bought about 6 months ago, and I think lots of people have those, so it’s probably not just me.
