    Does mlse have a particular reason for not plugging to to ESPN for those games? Best i can come up with is that you're paying Matt jack and leo for 82 games regardless and want your moneys worth.

    But in the playoffs, blue Jays use the American broadcast and it has a way more big time feel. Raps still dont do it in playoffs
    My guess is that Rogers/Bell don't want to give up the air time....and neither do their advertisers.

      MLB dictates that all post season broadcasts are their total and complete domain. No local crews. So no Buck and Pat when the Jays went to the post season those few short years ago.

      As to why TSN/SN doesn't swipe the feed from ESPN .. maybe there is something in the tv rights agreements that says they can't....or perhaps advertising revenue they have to forgo if they put on a local production.... just guesses.

        Probably the best answer. I think I've only seen 1 or 2 raptor games ever called by a non-local crew, when they were on ABC a couple playoffs ago
        It's Klaw Season. Time to hunt.

          Well, leaving aside DS' answer and all the obvious rights-holder issues, Rogers would never air an ESPN feed, as ESPN owns part of TSN, so it wouldn't showcase it's competitor. That would be bizarre.

          It also makes zero sense as to why TSN would pay ESPN to air a feed of a basketball it has already paid once to broadcast.

            People see what they want to see. Theyll watch hockey and go "this guy ALWAYS gives the puck away he sucks." And conviently forget all the good plays just focusing and looking for the giveaways
            Good ole confirmation bias

              I'm an unashamed hop-head. 80+ IBU IPA's is where it's at. It's like good red wine or spicy food, after a while more is betterer
              Collective Arts (Hamilton) Ransack the Universe or Rhyme and Reason, Flying Monkeys (Barrie) Hoptical Illusion or Smashbomb, Amsterdam's (Toronto) Boneshaker. I used to like Mill Streets (Toronto) Tankhouse Ale until Labatt's/Anheuser/InBev bought them and now I won't touch it out of principle. Their session Ales and IPA are only OK.

              Pilsner Urquell is great as a trainer beer Wheat beer? Blah!

              Bigger beers from smaller breweries that don't have to pasteurize or otherwise preserve are better lol but they sure aren't for everyone.
              I'm also a big hop head, and love a good beer. I even got into making it myself.

              I think the big thing for anyone, is finding a beer style they like. Some dudes love wheat, others stouts. Other's like big bitter hoppy beers, other like citrus fruity NEIPA. I think the biggest issue with a lot of craft breweries is that they try to make a bunch of different styles to feed everyone tastes, instead of picking up a couple they are really good at.

              Personally I love most things from Bellwoods, Blood Brother's and Burdock in the city. I'm down with IPA, (especially NEIPA's, IIPA's Milkshakes) Sours, and Saisons. But beer changes as it ages, some are better young, others are better aged. As someone who has tried literally hundreds if not thousands of different beers, I will say that just because I didn't like a beer, doesn't mean its not good. Someones else's pallet might dig it.

              After making it myself, I will say, that the big breweries beer's taste a lot like corn or rice (they use a lot of it as it's cheaper than malt) If that's what your used to it tastes fine (in university I had no problem with it) but now after tasting others I will say its not my favourite. I'll still drink it though.

                    Yes it sounds like your a hop head �� Amsterdam is ok went there years ago it was only place to get beer when beer stores were closed on sundays. I frequented upper canada brewery in the 80s me and my crew knew them so we got free testers - for hours .if im not mistaking upper canada was like the first “craft” brewery around mid/late 80s IPAs I dont get. Wheat beers are tha bomb bro. Cold hoegaarden in their frozen mug is delicious heaven
                    Upper Canada was the first "macro" micro got huge and had at least 10-12 beers. It started in 1985 and was one of the biggest independents in Canada until Sleeman (also a massive independent at that time) bought it in 1998 when they proceeded to kill all but two labels. The original owner of Upper Canada (Frank Heaps) then funded his son and some buddies to start Steam Whistle Brewery in Toronto.

                    Sleeman was eventually sold to Japan's Sapporo Brewery in 2006 for $400+M

                    I won't buy any of their swill any more either

                    Every beer lover needs to put the Great Amercian Beer Festival in Denver on their bucket list but
                    you need to work your liver up to it!

                    Independent micros or nothing!
