    For me, I like to have the better announcers on the broadcast. At the very least, a fresh opinion from the Devlin-Jack-Leo homer crowd
    Yea.. but the drawback is you get some of those "celebrity" announcers who end up making really dumb comments because they haven't been watching the team all year.

    US national TV games are an indication of how popular your team is. Popularity means exposure, which means advertising & sponsor dollars for teams and players. Teams and players care a lot about being on US national TV - especially Chris Bosh.
    Okay, I agree that the advertising and sponsor dollars might increase for a US nationally televised game, but I don't see how that affects the actual performance of the team. We're really just talking about more money for people who wear shirts and ties, not people who wear Raptors uniforms. The cap remains and I doubt 1-2 games that Americans get to watch will convince MLSE to pay luxury taxes.

    Also, in all fairness, Chris Bosh is an idiot.

      Which is still a nice change of pace from Jack and Leo; who watch the team all year and make dumb comments.

            Agreed. The unabashed homerism is nauseating. They're MLSE employees, so its not surprising, but they have become progressively worse since the Raptors started winning. At least with ESPN/TNT/NBATV the announcers try to be impartial, and they don't wail about officiating. I swear, if I hear "contact, no call" one more time...

              I doubt that Chris Bosh is the only NBA player (or agent or sponsor) who cares about the level of national exposure the player's "brand" is getting. It's pretty obvious that exposure does have some effect on how much a player can earn in endorsements, beyond his salary. I believe there were some players who had shoe deals that would increase in value if they played in bigger markets.

                    I had a season ticket holder grab mine. Ticketmaster was fucked and she got an email from the flames with a new link, at 5:36. (Presale was supposed to be 5 but it wasn't available)
                    Went to the new link, best she could get was 11th row in the 200 level. Kind of dissapointed
                    It's Klaw Season. Time to hunt.

                      Yeah it was fucked. We got 12th row on the 200 level. Might have to try again on Friday to see what's available.

                        Yeah that's kind of my plan too. I set a dollar limit to get into the lower bowl, I wanna go full fan boy and get close to the bench for warmups. They're not coming back anytime soon lol

                            Pre-sale didn't work for me and the first few times I searched for tix on ticketmaster there weren't any available. Got lucky on my third try (someone must have dropped them). I have front row first level of stands for Calgary.

                              Congrats, you got very lucky. I wasn't able to improve my seats from the pre-sale, but that might be because I was looking for 4. Did you get 2? Either way, that's awesome you got in!
