Stupid, stupid stupid Canadian channel. Since Golf went an extra round they screwed the tennis fans over and got rid of tennis today to show golf.

:mad: :fiery:

:bigcry: Between poker, bowling and fishing, they're really turning into a sports network :rolleyes:

Are you sure this is true? On the channel where they show what's going to be on at a certain time (Channel 5 in my area), it says they are showing the NASDAQ-100 Open at 1:00 PM.

Honestly. I want to ask them to show ratings. How many people watch fishing and bowling and how many people watch tennis.

Hey leave bowling alone, they only show it like once or twice a week. But the fishing that is on for hours a day needs to go.

this is my complaint:

Okay, I have been watching tennis for five years, now. You guys used to share tennis with Sportsnet, right? But, why the heck doesn't Sportsnet show anything now, because YOU GUYS DON'T SHOW ANY FREAKING TENNIS! You would rather show FISHING, BOWLING, and POKER?! ISN'T IT A SPORTS NETWORK!? GOD! We have the biggest tennis stars in the world playing this week: Roger Federer, Andy Roddick, Serena and Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova and you are showing FISHING. FISHING!?!!!! GIMME A BREAK! LEARN HOW TO MAKE YOUR VIEWERS HAPPY!?!!! GOD!

Show some tennis, won't ya? Thanks for your time.

The reason sports net doesn't have the wta contract no more is because they had bad ratings when they had it

i don;t know much but fishing may not be a sport, and im sure poker is not a sport cause if it is then that makes the cigar smoking, ugly shirt ,stupid hat/sunglass wearing players "athletes" and i refuse to taint the word that much...come to think of it some fat guy drinking beer sitting/sleeping on a boat waiting for fish isn't an athlete unless you consider sticking a worm on a hook athletic, then more power to ya...

I'm surprised fishing gets ratings but hey, I guess there's lots of outdoorsy people who need to know about lures and hear big-fish stories everyday. Now I'm learning about the Canadian sportfishing championships :hearts:

What is wrong with you people on TSN? You have tons of viewers for Tennis and you shove us off like we're nothing to you people! Even if and you are showing golf people will be tuning into NBC anyways so your broadcast means nothing! You have caused so much anger directed in your direction because of your disregard to your tennis fans that mostly prefer the Wta Tour(check wtaworld.com if you don't believe me)!! Fix up your act if you would like us to keep watching your network.

Thank you for your attention...(not)

i understand why they are showing golf though. Its the TPC, which is like the nasdaq 100 open of golf. It would be like cutting the final of the nasdaq to show opening rounds of some other sport.

well, what else is new?

I can totally understand that hockey, football or basketball are more popular,

even golf, and curling (although I totally hate it).

But poker? give me a fucking break, that's not a fucking sport, sitting down on a chair playing cards is a sports?

Next we will have a masturbation contest, that in any case at least is more physical than poker.

And poker shouldn't be encouraged, they are promoting all those healthy life styles and they include poker? gambling is sooo healthy.

Really when ESPN looks good by comparisson, you know have the biggest shit you can possibly have.

It's raining in Miami at the moment so no tennis for anyone :p

The reason they are showing Poker is to fill an hour. Tennis was to come on at 1:00pm. But they're picking up the golf coverage instead at 2:00pm so they're not going to show tennis for only an hour and then cut away. The Poker is just there as filler till the golf comes on.

does anyone now if they are going to show tennis at any time today??TSN schedule says 1:00 p.m and 3:00 p.m.

BTW, the Nasdaq-100open site indicates "play suspended". Maybe this is why TSN switched to poker.
