Not sure what this means but I doubt if there is anything "free" about it. You probably have to be paying for Sportsnet already in one way or another.

^ With a product like that I could see them having a free tier, but you have to pay if you want to get the good stuff, whatever that might be.

elly63 Oct 7, 2021 6:34 PM

As the article said there are paid tiers but I just wonder what you have to have to get the free tier.

Shawinigan dodged the issue by wearing an alternate jersey with a big S on the front.

The other logo was pretty visible in the faceoff circle at centre ice, though.

And they didn't use their current logo in the 50th Anniversary crest, so it looks like they're doing a slow rebrand and phasing things out.

Acajack Oct 12, 2021 9:13 PM

I still think the logo on the left looks fantastic, though of course I realize that it's not acceptable in the current climate.

Dumb question. What Is a Cataracte?

A waterfall. Nothing to do with your eyes. Unless you're using them to view the falls.

Cataracte, which evokes the Spanish word for waterfall (cataratas) is not the most commonly used word in French, though. Everyone says "chute(s)" these days.

Another alternative word for waterfall in French is the archaic "sault" which is found in lots of place names.

Ok thank you. Which leads me to the next question.
What is the corellation between a waterfall and a traditional head dress?

He talks like he looks forward to what's next, but doesn't specify what that is, so while he didn't get walked to the door and disappear from any mentions, it also sounds like it wasn't his decision to end it either.

Likely the continuation of Bell letting go of senior long term anchors who they felt were too expensive to keep paying from similar layoffs last year.

Canada lost their 2-leg Rugby World Cup Qualifier to Chile, 22-21 for Canada at home and 33-24 win for Chile at home. By losing, Canada misses out on the RWC for the first time ever (since it started in 1987).

We beat Chile 56-0 in 2019.

Now, the South American nations are rapidly improving, I don't want to take away from them.

But this is an exceptionally low point in Canadian Rugby history. At one point were ranked 11th in the world, and have fallen pretty much non stop for the last 5 or 6 years and now sit at 23rd. We've utterly failed to adapt to professionalism.

Perhaps more importantly than the prestige and awareness that comes with attending the WC, we now lose out on high performance funding from World Rugby. I have no idea what the effects of that will be, but it will surely make it even harder to get back to respectability.

I'm mostly worried about how this affects the grassroots. When Rugby Canada had to play in the last-ditch Repechage tournament to qualify for the 2019 World Cup, Rugby Canada jacked the dues up $20 for every amateur player in the country to pay for it.

Nineteen NFL teams bid for int'l marketing rights
BY BEN FISCHER
10.26.2021

NEW YORK -- Nineteen NFL clubs submitted 28 different bids for international business rights as part of the league’s plan to allow teams to sign marketing and media agreements in foreign countries, according to a league source. The most bids were submitted for Mexico, followed by the U.K. at No. 2 and Germany at No. 3. Five other countries are being pursued by at least one other team: Canada, Brazil, Australia, China and an undisclosed European country that isn’t Ireland, the source said. Teams will find out by December who gets which markets. This will be the first time NFL teams will be allowed to work in foreign countries in the same manner they can develop revenue and fan engagement in their domestic home markets. Historically, the league has centrally controlled global rights.

The source said league execs are pleased with the number and distribution of bids, along with the overall quality of the proposals. Before the September deadline to apply, there had been some ambivalence among teams for the international program, questioning whether the return was worth the effort. Teams with a robust, well-developed business in their home markets will have an advantage in their pursuit of international markets.

Separately, the source said things are “looking good” for launching the NFL’s first regular-season game in Germany in '22, but stopped short of confirming it will be that soon. The league has selected finalist cities for hosting rights, but has hedged on whether it would happen in ’22 or ’23.


Emphasis added mine.

Anyone want to take a swing at which team(s) bid for Canada rights? Can't think of any that would make logical sense outside of Buffalo.
