            We have TSN to cover every single game! And have the backing of one whole country + fans from different parts of the world. For example, this guy right here from Seattle

                The worst part about TSN/TSN2 is that they are the only cheap ass sports channel that isn't in HD. If that's not bad enough, they make the Raptors games small and widescreen, so I have to zoom in twice just to make it fill up my HD TV. I hate TSN...

                  It's the sort of schedule where we may get off to a rough start by playing away so much. I figure there will be tons of "I told you so's", "They suck!" and calls for heads to roll...followed by a better record towards Xmas and lots of high expectations and hopes.

                    And some people who don't live in North America only have Raptormage.

                      I always have a major problem with the lack of Toronto coverage on American television. First, when you can't see the team and don't follow it, often commentators and fans come-up with ignorant opinions and misconceptions, that do a disservice to the Toronto players, fans, and the city itself. Bosh, among other stars, has mentioned the lack of media coverage in the US as a major pet peeve of his...and was one of the reasons he left.

                      1. Lack of media coverage, breeds ignorance and misconceptions.
                      2. It's harder to attract and retain players..

                        Why would you expect anything else from Americans?

                          That was my first thought when I glanced over the schedule. There doesn't seem to be a lot of practice time or days off...though maybe it's always been like that and it was only slightly more condensed last season after the lockout.

                          Last season: 66 games over 123 days - 1.86 games/day

                          This season: 82 games over 169 days - 2.06 games/day

                          Probably not the clearest metric to illustrate it, but oh well. It looks like the condensed schedule wasn't as extreme as it was made out to be. But any bit of rest helps.

                            ummmm....I don't know how to tell you this, but....your mom lied and just didn't pay the extra $7 bucks for TSN & TSN2 HD.

                            sorry champ, if it makes you feel better I'm too cheap to afford it too.
