That interview with Sinopoli in the press box, overriding the play was awful. I don’t want to see sinopoli learn the telestrater while missing action on the field. Piss poor direction. 

That's twice Suitor has done that. The first with Keith Urban pushing him to do pbp at the 2019 GC & now with Sinopoli & the telestrator. He thinks he's funny but he's brutal.

At the risk of being called contrarian (which let’s face it some will do any time I comment, so let’s just go ahead) the most popular or at least most talked about innovation in NFL broadcasts is having the Manning brothers sit in their rec rooms a country apart jawing about things and having guests on during the broadcast, with the actual play by play a distant second in terms of focus, and the game itself in a small box in the corner. And college football does that “5 different telecasts” lunacy for the championship with the game-long  sideline reports, advanced stats booth, in studio commentary and pretty much anything other than a “normal” broadcast. So it’s not like the CFL is doing something other broadcasts aren’t doing in their own way.

Now do I like it? Absolutely not. And certainly it doesn’t seem like most die hard purists do either, judging by the message board responses. But it’s about attracting new eyeballs with new gimmicks. They are not at risk of losing the folks at MBB with this new approach (people enjoy screaming about their hatred of Suitor in multiple posts more than just muting him and synching the radio broadcast, it’s like a drinking game), so they won’t worry about angry comments so long as those comments keep coming. I think it is being poorly executed and a bad concept, but it seems to be the way of the future in most leagues, not solely the CFL, and my demographic is the way of the past.  So right or wrong, I think that’s why TSN assumes some (not us, but a target demo they want) want to see a new wrinkle. 

What does the Manning brothers talking on another ESPN channel have to do with anything. If you don't want to watch, don't. Watch the traditional broadcast. You have a choice.

Was just responding to the question “why would TSN assume we want to watch interviews when no other network does them”. Was just pointing to an example of how the NFL does a whole game of it and it draws a lot of eyeballs and is seen as a fun innovation. As for your advice, you could follow it yourself with all the Suitor hate. Mute the TV, synchronize the OB broadcast from the radio or streaming to the video. You have choices as well.

I can't help it that on just about everything here you seem to always want to swim upstream from everyone else against the current. That's just you being you.

took a look on the innernets, at tsn salary.

 

glassdoor .... reported salaries seem not very good, by todays standards.

 

I suspect they dont have the best people available working for them. 

they laid off some people,those left are probably overworked.

bell media. 2021

 

"This is the fourth round of layoffs at Bell Media this calendar year after successive restructuring at the executive level and middle management in January, followed by job losses in sales, administration and news, among other positions. In February, newly-named Bell Media President Wade Oosterman signalled to employees in a memo that restructuring had been “completed.”"

 

does not excuse in game interviews, or, Suitor.

Suitor would be almost tolerable if he didn't yip Yap about the same thing incessantly over and over...or interject with his assumptions on things which most times are wayyyy off....and talked to his audience like they aren't 4 yr olds

Suitor should watch video of him doing games in the late 90's when he was just starting out with TSN. He may remember that being simple is indeed more. However more isn't necessarily better. He actually just described the play & then went on to the next. Sometime between then & now he became a monster in the tv booth.

TSN needs to revamp all around...they trumpeting this25 yr stuff and they haven't really progressed or improved their product other than the standard change to technology....if anything the content and commentary has regressed and got stale

Agreed. Their best commentator was Leif Petterson & he died 20 years ago.

Dustin Nelson is quickly turning into Rod Black.  He is either not paying attention to what's on the field or has vision problems because he seems to be getting players and plays wrong increasingly with each game he calls.  Just do the freaking play by play and don't be afraid to interrupt Suitor with that play by play when Suits is rambling.

He's not as bad as Black,  but he is trying a bit hard with the jokes in the game.

He has a terrible vocabulary.

Take a swig any time he says "catched" instead of "caught."

The Keith Urban one was by far the worst and painfully awkward. Felt quite bad for the guy.
