Re: Rogers considers selling Blue Jays, Cogeco stake

Back in late October Didn't Rogers also consider selling the naming rights to the Rogers centre?

Re: Rogers considers selling Blue Jays, Cogeco stake

I've been telling you for how long?  These completely STUPID people over-extended themselves and they look to be ready for huge financial difficulties.  Going for sole rights to the Blue Jays and most of the NHL games PLUS owning a major stake in MLSE, running a bunch of radio and TV stations, and trying to do all of the other stuff they do?  WHEW!!!  It's too much/too many balls to hold in your hand...let alone juggle.  Doesn't matter how they spin it.  They can't afford all of this Sportsnet programming.  Even ***I*** could see that...from the outset.

Bell to the rescue?  Ya right.  Their raft has holes in IT...hither and yawn.  Managementwise?  They're not so wise.


The less 'Cyber Space' knows about me the better.  As a result I do not use my real name.  I would be willing to use yours' though.  No?  OK then.  So you 'get' it.  We're good.

Blue Jays' rights - how to determine what's more profitable in the long run - licensing or ownership?

Re: Rogers considers selling Blue Jays, Cogeco stake

They're apparently no longer sellers. Although last year in the standings, for all but the last day of the season, the Jays were IN the cellar...
