Show the CCA your displeasure at the fact they took curling coverage away from TSN. You have until Friday night to sign it!

The CCA did a dumb thing. Sure, CBC may reach more homes, but a lot of people have cable or satellite these days. It's not rare for rural folks to be part of the 100 channel universe anymore.

The evening draws won't be on live. Who's going to stay up until after the late local news to watch a game, midweek, that's been over for 2 hours?

I guess TSN couldn't offer as much money, but this deal is no way to grow the game.

TSN also provides the best curling coverage IMO......

no they are not. that is one of the problems from a fans perspective. there will be limited tape delayed coverage of weekbnight games on the national network after the late local news.(who the hell is gonna watch a game that has been over for 2 hours at 11:30??)
other coverage will be on a subscriber only channel called CBC Country Canada?? I dont have it, and arent going to be paying for it.
and TSN said they arent going to be picking up leftovers, which means NO coverage on TSN at all.
The CCA dropped the ball, all the momentum the sport has picked up in the past few years largely due to TSNs coverage has taken a giant leap backwards as far as the fans are concerned.
