TSN began their 2011 CFL coverage in earnest tonight with their Training Camp Preview show.
To be honest, it was a rather underwhelming effort. Not much insight was gained on any of the eight teams. The show seemed to be used to simply pump you up for shows to come, like the Huddle for Haiti special that will air at the end of the month.
The segment on the Ti-Cats was quite short. Each analyst – Matt Dunigan, Jock Climie and Chris Schultz – talked about an aspect of the team. Climie and Dunigan focused on the running game and Avon Cobourne, while Schultz talked about the Secondary. Nothing much was gained from the segment, as each man pretty much stated what most fans have been thinking.
The show may have been a small disappointment, but it was still CFL talk, and I'll take some CFL talk over no CFL talk every day of the week.
The show was meant to act as a primer for what is to come, and I guess in that respect it accomplished its goal, because I am primed and pumped for the start of the season.
