    Just checking in to see if Rogers and their money-grubbing TV schedule still sucks. Aaaaand... yup.

    I'll consider it a successful year if the Habs do just two things: 1) Make it to the playoffs, then... 2) Win the final game of their season. Hab fans want choice! Sign the petition to give us back our games! http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/no-habs-blackout-rds

    Good thing they're renovating the dressing room. Sounds like it was a little too cozy in there! Hab fans want choice! Sign the petition to give us back our games! http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/no-habs-blackout-rds

    Last year I paid the equivalent of $0.60 per game to watch all regular season games on RDS. ($7/month for seven months). This season, 33 games are being broadcast which means that a subscription to Centre Ice (it's offered to me only as part of a "Super Sports Pak" bundle) gets me the other 49 Hab games... for $287. Even after I subtract what it cost me last season to have RDS, (I've dropped the subscription) I'm still looking at a $238 increase to get all 82 games... a 485% cost increase over last season. Would you be happy if the product that you consumed last season cost you 485% more this season? Would you not call that an opportunistic rip-off? RDS had been making money off of broadcasting all Hab games nationally, and Rogers could have picked up where RDS had left off. Instead, they came up with a plan to move the majority of the games to Centre Ice just so that they could squeeze as much money as they could out of Canadian hockey fans. Hab fans want choice!

    I think that you'll be OK with RDS, Ian. Though you've been nominated to hold Hab game viewing parties for those of us in the blackout area! ;) Hab fans want choice! Sign the petition to give us back our games! http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/no-habs-blackout-rds

    A number of posters on here west of Belleville suggesting that purchasing NHL Centre Ice will be a good way to stick it to Rogers while being able to get access to all Hab games... NOT TRUE. Rogers purchased all rights on all platforms, INCLUDING Centre Ice packages. That was part of the $50 billion headed into NHL coffers. Check out the terms of service on NHL.com; every single penny that you spend on Centre Ice will go to Rogers. That's why Rogers is limiting the number of games available on broadcast TV; instead of raising their own cable rates and looking like the bad guys, they're hoping that you'll buy Centre Ice at grossly-inflated rates. We can sign as many petitions as we want (and I still encourage you to do so) but the most effective way to hit Rogers in the bank account is to NOT purchase Centre Ice.
