CBC Stands Behind Cherry

from William Houston of Truth & Rumours,

An apology from Don Cherry for telling a Toronto radio reporter to “f-off” during a profanity laced tirade on Sunday is highly unlikely.

  Scott Moore, the head of CBC Sports, says Cherry is not to blame for the incident and in fact was incited by the reporter who was overly aggressive.

  “I think the apology should go the other way,” Moore said in an email.

  Moore went on CFRB radio in Toronto today at noon and stated the network is throwing its full support behind Cherry. Moreover, sources confirmed there will be no apology from Hockey Night In Canada commentator.

I Have To Ask Why?

Last night I stayed up late to watch the Kings/Canucks game, all in SD (standard definition) and have to ask why?

I am now watching the same game on the NHL Network in glorious HD along with 7.1 surround sound.

I have also noticed a lot of complaints from hockey fans lately who state games are listed as HD on Center Ice but they are not getting the game in HD.  I too have noticed and have to ask why?

If you can’t be at the game, the next best thing is to watch a hockey broadcast in HD.

I also know sometimes carriers have bandwidth issues and don’t broadcast in HD, then if that is the issue, it should not be listed on Center Ice as HD.  Correct?

Caught On Tape

Earlier today I pointed to a story on Don Cherry responding to negative remarks made about him.

Now, William Houston of Truth & Rumours has more,

Scott Moore, the head of CBC Sports and advertising sales, is expected on appear on at least one Toronto radio station today doing damage control.

  My guess is Cherry, through the CBC, will issue an apology later today to the reporter and the public.

The NHL Equipment Manager

Mike Rucki of On Frozen Blog tells all we want to know about the Sports Jobs with Junior Seau…

Tonight is the premier of the NHL Equipment Manager episode of Sports Jobs with Junior Seau on Versus (11:30 p.m., again at 2:00 a.m.). Seau accompanied the Capitals for their trip up to Boston to open the season.

This first clip shows Seau struggling to pronounce “Leonsis” before he joins Ted in the box for the game. Note the inadvertent cameo by Kurt Kehl, the Caps’ VP of Communications.

Oilers Go The Online Route

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

Tomorrow (Wednesday) night’s date in Tampa between the Lightning and the visiting Edmonton Oilers. It is one of two games this season the Oilers are unable to broadcast through traditional media outlets, according to Allan Watt, the team’s vice-president of communications and broadcast. As a result, for the first time in their history, the Oilers are making the game available on their website. Game time is 5:30 MST; but the broadcast will kick off 15 minutes earlier with a pre-game show.

Watt suggested the Oilers were “venturing into new territory with this webcast” (true) and that it would provide fans with “a unique new format to catch the game” (also true).

To enhance the overall viewing experience, the play-by-play team of Kevin Quinn and Louis DeBrusk will be tweeting with fans throughout the broadcast via Twitter.

Who Do You Want To Follow?

from CBC,

Online viewers will have personal control over a near-ice-level perspective as the Hockey Night in Canada All Access Cam makes its debut in Friday’s telecast of the Montreal Canadiens’ centennial anniversary game against the Boston Bruins.

The new camera will give viewers logging on to CBCSports.ca total freedom to choose where they focus their attention during the pre-game festivities and after the puck drops at the Bell Centre.

“It’s a cool innovation. We’re always trying to bring the event to the viewer,” said Hockey Night in Canada executive producer Sherali Najak.

Developed by Immersive Media in Calgary and sponsored by Chevrolet, the circular camera, smaller than a soccer ball, has 11 lenses working simultaneously. The different views are pieced together by computer software, giving online users a real-time 360-degree view of the action.

Does Junior Seau Know Hockey?

from Greg Wyshynski of PuckDaddy,

Next Wednesday (on Versus) is the episode featuring Seau as an equipment manager for the Washington Capitals. He spoke with us recently about working that sports job, gauging the toughness of hockey players and the impression Alex Ovechkin(notes) made on him. That, along with talk about his three days as a reporter for Sports Illustrated, concussions in the NFL and NHL and attempting to be a TV star after football. Oh, and a strange moment involving man-on-man tickling. Enjoy.

On a player to player basis, who has more equipment: Football or hockey?

Oh, definitely a hockey player. There’s so much more going on. They wear leotards underneath those pads.

What’s that one stud’s name?

Ovechkin?

Yeah, Alex. Watching him, you’d think that he would be a prima donna. That guy is a jokester. He lightens it up. The reason why the Capitals are doing so well is basically because the guy puts it in perspective. He’s not bigger than anybody on that team, and he cares for the players in that locker room, which I got to see firsthand.
