I'd be thrilled for Ray if he got the gig, he's the best. Sucks that he wouldn't be doing any TSN work, though.

They missed out on gnabing Cuthbert by a year, too. Put Ray & CC together again and you've got magic.

Wayne might be going on TV.


That sounds like a... dreadful move. Has Wayne ever said a bad thing about anyone? Has he shown any kind of proficiency at being a good analyst and breaking down plays?

But hey, if they're willing to pay him a ton of money, good on him. It won't make the broadcasting any better, but still.

Name recognition in the states. Nothing more.

Hockey might be the absolute best sport on earth at getting "name recognition" without any other qualifications.

Could have used that money he wasted on the irrelevant UN security council seat to save the CFL.
I'm a big CFL fan but giving taxpayer money to a pro sports league (especially one that primarily employs American citizens) is a non-starter for me. Pro sports either pays its own way or it goes away.

And that goes double for using tax money to subsidize the building of stadiums or arenas for pro sports franchises. Worst possible allocation of public funds outside of casinos.
