    Honestly, why in the world would ESPN, the company, not the website, care all that much about Toronto? Their main business is their television product. We don't get ESPN up here. The website mostly mirrors what they show on TV - it goes hand in hand.

    And the even better question. Who cares.
    hahahaa

    welcome to 2014, where web hits matter.



    They take advantage of Toronto the same way the MLSE does..... they get maximum output with minimum input.

    Do I need to explain this too?

    Oh buddy you're in deep aren't you?
    You got the tinfoil hat on right now?
    Consider that Toronto and Montreal basically receive the same status as middling franchises in the mid west, yet carry the clout, and in most cases, much more clout than most of the teams in the US eastern seaboard not named NYC..... the situation is pretty plain to see..... consider this:

    Fox Sports sportscaster Joe Buck attributes the shift to the economics of running a business. "If you think there is a perceived East Coast bias, guess what? You're right. That's where people are watching, that's were (sic) the numbers are."[8] ESPN ombudsman Le Anne Schreiber wrote that fans should forget about expecting equity in teams the network selects to broadcast. "It is long proven in NBA and NFL and MLB that spreading the wealth to 30 or 32 teams is a prescription for deflating ratings," said Len DeLuca, ESPN senior vice president for programming.
    The problem is that "Canada", for a few reasons, and YES, they exist, culturally and politically, is NOT included in the East coast bias bonanza. Never has been, never will be.

    So Suck it Phaneuf.

    someone got a problem with tin foil hats!?

    Toronto is taken advantage of as essentially the US market. 1 out of 6.5 Canadians live in and around Toronto. They assume we will eat up mostly American content...and they are mostly correct. Someone made the calculation that the airwaves were best served on their current model. I don't see their internal metrics but I know they get an influx of hits on Canadian stories

    Unplug bud, red pill or blue.

    I always find it interesting that people believe that every big company is always 100% about what they are doing.

    Give your self more credit. they are people, and people drop balls.

    ESPN drops the ball on Canadian coverage pretty regularly.

    Then they hear about it, loudly, from canadians, then they respond with coverage.

    You wanna sit and take it fine.... think about it during free agency when Lebron or Durant pass Toronto up as a desirable destination because they are afraid of coverage.

    Try the big picture one day, I hear its to die for

    almost 5 million in the GTA. Borders means shit, its about Ads. And they drop the ball in canada. stats show that th eGTA alone is MASSIVE on espn, they know it and dont cater to Toronto because its a self sustaining market, they dont need to. Learn a bit about the way it works. Yes, Toronto get fucked, big time.
    The day you know more about data and making money than Disney is the day I will legitimately be crazy.

    hahaha you're crazy because that stiff is Jason Collins, the first openly gay player in professional sports.

    You're crazy because Phil Jackson is one of the two greatest coaches of all time signing on run the biggest NBA franchise in one of the biggest cities in the world.

    You're crazy because the media, even the news, doesn't work on the basis of equal rights. You give stories that the majority of your readers want. Go to TSN.ca, I bet there are a lot of Canadian centric stories, go to BBC.com and I bet you'll see mostly European sports coverage, and if you go to ESPN you'll see mostly coverage about the big cities and big players and the rest of the time divided evenly between the other teams, because that's what the random reader wants.
    Go fuck yourself for calling me "crazy"

    Its a big splash page, the word toronto should be on it.

    I know exactly who Collins is, I worked in the media, i get it..... but hey, theres 2 links......

    explain the rest.

    calling me crazy..... fuck that noise.......

    enjoy not seeing the word Toronto ANYWHERE on the front page.

    But hey, Brooklyn signed a ten days stiff for the remainder of the season...thats there..... and the Knicks got Jackson.

    Tell me again how I'm crazy, and that th US media doesn't fuck Toronto, and that the Brooklyn game WASN'T HUGE.
