CBC execs are evidently crying poor because Andrew Raycroft can't stop a beach ball and Woz - well, because of Woz.
I was tipped off by Bitter Leaf Fan that the Leafs' poor on-ice play in recent seasons has been cited as a reason that certain CBC programming is being cancelled. Apparently, the argument goes something like this: no Leaf playoff appearances = less advertising revenue = less money to pay for programming.
Now, I've been there, brother. Who among us hasn't found ourselves the unfortunate victim of unforeseen circumstances well beyond our control, from time to time? Such as, for example, with a belly full of beer at 2:45 a.m. but not so much as a plugged nickel to put down towards a pepperoni slice or a trip home on the TTC?
In the spirit of public service, therefore, I've put together some financing suggestions for the tall foreheads at the CBC who got the network into this mess and I've published them here.
What say we compile a list of such high finance pointers and pass them along to the network execs? Enter your suggestions in the comments below.
