    Thanks for posting this info! I couldn’t find the kickoff time on the CFL website. Major sporting leagues never make the most basic info easily available on their websites. It’s one of the most annoying things. It’s sad to hear about Nickleback though, what a spoiled opportunity.

    Incredible that Canada’s National Championship football game is not being broadcast on CTV or CBC. I have satellite and don’t get TSN. I went nuts this morning trying to find out where and when the game was being broadcast. I’ve been to a Grey Cup party just about every single year of my life. No wonder the CFL is in trouble gaining viewers! Who made the dumbest decision ever to only broadcast on TSN – a channel millions of Canadians don’t get?

    Thankfully the game is also on TSN.ca, so I get to sit and squint at my computer screen, which is better than nothing. Hopefully next year – the 100th celebration, will be on a national network. These big network execs just keep making dumber and dumber decisions. It’s no wonder why people are moving away in droves from “standard” TV.

    What with everybody Slamming Nickleback?! I like Nickleback. ALLOT OF PEOPLE DO!! It’s not their fault THE MEDIA PLAYS THE CRAP OUT OF THEIR STUFF!! Thats Your end mates!!
    Elvis Presley even phoned a radio station to make a request TO PLAY SOMETHING ELSE BESIDES ELVIS when the station had decided to play ONLY ELVIS ALL DAY IN HONOR OF his show the next night.
    Nickleback I’m sure isnt thrilled about the over exposure either. Thank-God for your Car Stereo,……is Chad aloud to drive again yet?? HHHmmmmmm

    It happened to Journey,…. Foreigner,….. they get slammed ALL THE TIME! THESE GUYS WERE GREAT IN THE DAY And Commercial success now makes them a target?!?! You guys in the Media did it man! Getting somewhere in music is tough enough, (( dont ask me how I know that ))…. let them enjoy the ride you dorks. They dont need your bull.
    Anyway,……. cut them some slack cause in 10 years or less your going to be hearing it as elevator music to torture yourselves even a bit more.
    THAT INDEED Mite be painful..

    Cheers
    Dave
