    Please Please stop quoting the troll, I have him on ignore and my day is much better when I do not have to read anything he has typed.  He is just a troll try to get attention.  I have never put anyone on ignore before but trust me it is worth it in this case.

    Ah - ha !

    So, you do not deny that Edwards may have bigger plans in mind than just simply being a homer hockey broadcaster ???

    Well, we're certainly through the looking glass here, people

    Again, I reiterate that the CRTC provides a wide range of programming that reflects Canadian attitudes, opinions, ideas, values and artistic creativity.

    How would NESN, an American network broadcasting American teams, fit in in anyway with the CRTC's mandate ?

    If your Revolutionary Edwards comes to Canada, he will be in direct violation of The Broadcast Act (section 3.1(d)(ii)) of the CRTC.

    If we apprehend him on these charges, we will reform him from his wayward ways by having him listen to Celine Dion, eat three square meals of poutine daily and dress in a Habs jersey.

    You have been forewarned !

    Adieu !

    As a Canadian I have no issues with saying, the CRTC is a joke.  Maybe the CRTC should focus on removing sex, drug, and alcohol talk from our radios and televisions as opposed to censoring Hockey.

    It doesn't really matter whether you think that the CRTC is a joke ?

    The Broadcast Act (section 3.1(d)(ii)) exists.

    If I must pay the CRTC bills, I want the CRTC to ensure that it follows its mandate in providing Canadian content -- not American content.

    There are six Canadian hockey teams, and the Bruins aren't one of them.

    [QUOTE]There is no way even if you had Direct TV which carries NESN once the game starts NESN goes black (outside of New England I believe). You have to suffer through listening to terribly called games. I laugh when people complain about Jack n Brick as I have suffered the last 3 years of having NHL Center Ice. Some of the regional Fox Sports announcers for Carolina, St. Louis, Anaheim, Pittsburgh, Detroit, Dallas etc. Terrible!
    Posted by SanDogBrewin[/QUOTE]
    You certainly appreciate Jack and Brick after listening to most other teams announcers.Living in Canada I have to put up with that blowhard Pierre Mcguire most games.Pierre knows more about hockey than anyone.Just ask him.And what's with the French-Irish name anyway?

    Yea & I have called the CRTC. I have called my Goverment rep. I even had over 3500 people sign a petition in my birth home in NB. All Bruin fans & Red Sox fans. I got a response from the CRTC quoting their law about having Canadian content. The Goverment rep basically sent me an F.O letter.

    Yea, I know it show's on the center ice package. Sometimes it'll be Nesn! You never get the pre or post game shows. I can't watch the BUZZ, or any other Bruins shows. Hell, even Charlie Moore has some good Bruins on his fishing show!

    Then why are you wasting your time on an American newspaper website?  The new season of Being Erica started last week!

    In the meantime, enjoy protectionism while you can.  The second an American government decides the CRTC's mandate runs counter to NAFTA, you'll have to stream Being Erica live because it's time slot will belong to some reality TV show about compulsive eating/gambling/responding to trolls.

    You're a little bit nuts. Overall I don't have a problem with the CRTC, and I respect their mandate, but sometimes they pick and choose what rules they're going to use and when. How is getting NESN any different than getting TBS, CNN, MSNBC, Fox, Fox News, Fox Sports World, ABC, NBC, CBS, BBC, BBC News etc. No Canadian content, and all are available north of the 49th.

    In fact, I used to be able to get NESN years ago in Calgary on Shaw, then the CRTC arbitrarily changed their mind.

    It's because those are Nationwide networks. Stupid I know.

    So what you are saying is, that if Edwards were allowed to be viewed in Canada, he's become a dominant personality and replace Cherry?  That he would push out all Canadian content, so that it is replaced by his smiling mug?  You fear him that much?

    Miller I check this forum every few days and it’s obvious that you post here on a daily basis. You are responsible for half of the posts on this thread alone. You don’t like the bruins, but you must enjoy having people react to your posts. It might be time to look at what you’re doing with your life. I’m sure you could find better ways to occupy your time than cyber agitating on a rival team’s cite. I think having your kind of attitude would make it pretty hard to enjoy life. Enjoy the rivalry and stop trying to wake the bear.
