    More clear than ever that Anthopolous and Beeston went rogue on their overlords, and paid the price for it. Cheap fucking organization content to be middling and have all the baby boomers still tune in to Rogers Sportsnet and watch them.
    Raptors fans are very, very lucky that Bell and Tanenbaum own the balance of MLSE.....

    • Were Rogers always cheap? I mean I remember them spending a lot of money on guys like that Canadian catcher they had and that shortstop that was perennially injured. Or are they only cheap because of their dumb NHL package they bought? When does that expire by the way?

      * Edit - expires in 2025-26.

      So if your a Jays fan, I'd wait until at least 2026 before tuning in again.

      • I don't disagree with the NHL point but then it's disingenuous for Shapiro to be out there saying the expenditures are tied to revenues, especially when Rogers itself has a big say in what is actually booked as revenue..... another reason why MLB doesn't want corporate owners anymore and I don't blame them.

          The walk up gate evaporated last year in August. You couldn't give tickets away. A few nights there were less than 10K actual bums in seats in September. No surprise that concessions and merchandising are way down. Harder and harder to sell advertising spots on a broadcast that is losing viewers as well. And .. they are getting poked with broomstick by MLB to get a new stadium.

          Yes.. they have turned us into Cleveland. Its not rational to hate the Shatbot like the fan base hates them...but the celebration will be pagan when Rogers whacks these two guys and then sells the team in some convoluted fashion to MLSE of which they are already an owner. Only Rogers.

                Heard a blurb about the possibility of David Price returning? A kind of salary dump by Boston. Not quite sure about Ryu's health bonafides but ...
