    Is it just me, or is it kind of silly for Versus to put up a graphic labeling Vancouver-Chicago as a “Bonus Game” when it’s only a bonus game because they’re too cheap (or have visa/passport issues) to send a crew to Canada or the west coast?

  2. Jeff says:

    There is no Visa/Passport issue. Simply put they are too cheap. They picked up the CSN feed because they own it. Comcast owns VS.

    They are just too cheap. I love how partisian it is to use the Chicago announcers and how good it will look after this when Eddie O does the Western Finals. I know he will do fine but I do think its a bit funny. Also tonights game was in Chicago, which is not in Canada or the west coast. Although they might be, I have never understood why my state of Minnesota is in the Northwest in the NBA and NHL. I mean we are north and west of some places I guess.

      I know, they truly are cheap-asses. And hilariously, Chicago is basically the west coast to Versus. Peckham and Ahlers are the only play-by-play guys allowed west of Detroit, I believe.

    who cares? they are showing the game… God, people will find any reason to bitch and moan.
