Hockey fans:tired of watching the Maple Leafs each Saturday night on Hockey Night in Canada? Sign this petition nullOnLine Petion.
This is my first post to rabble, so in case the URL doesn't work here it is: http://www.petitiononline.com/hnic/petition.html
Let's get the tired old CBC to change.

Later
finally

If you don't want to watch it on the CBC get the Leafs Channel. Or the NHL channel or one of the half a dozen other sports channels that cover Leaf games.

aaahhh but the other channels are mainly pay channels which not everyone gets. As far as telecasting western games the time zone difference just assures viewers of two games. Not too mention the games have a rather large viewer share therefore garner a good amount of money for the station which should appease those who feel they get too much government money.

It was one thing when I lived in Calgary... where the Flames would get the odd doubleheader and they'd show the Habs or Sens periodically, but in Saskatchewan I guess the good folks at CBC think everyone lives for the Leafs.

God I hate Bob Cole!!!

i'm sure your loyalty runs VERY deep with the CBC, but perhaps you could do something like fly a kite for a few hours on saturday night.
or how about turning the channel?
either way, stop complaining.

2 signatures! With a movement like that, your cause will not fail!

Sorry, just teasing, finally. Welcome to babble. Unfortunately I'm not a hockey fan, so I can't bring your petition to a grand total of 3 signatories, but I'll send it to a couple of friends for you, how's that?

Thanks for the welcome. Flying a kite in Winnipeg in winter will either get me sent to the local psych ward or on the news. Thanks for the idea. Watch your local CBC news. Oops they gutted that one too.

What other games would they show on the CBC out there? I hear people in Newfoundland have the same problem. I can see why they would want to seperate, being forced to watch hockey games from imperialist federal territory.

While we are signing peitions, I want to start one up to get that Disney trash off the CBC on Sundays. It's like watching a hockey game, that is.

So I should maybe rethink that Disney Store gift certificate I got you for Christmas?

Okay.

As a Leaf Fan, I'm telling you know I've collected all your names and sent them off to CSIS, for anti-Canadian activities.

You pushed me to it, and you know it, so don't whine.

IS there no one from the west? This petition is starting to sink faster than the Reform Party. Or is it CRAPP? Or DC/PC ?
