    So what can we expect from TdF coverage on TSN2?

    It'll probably be the Versus coverage and pq should be good, the only downside i can see is that TSN seems to be quite rigid about their commercial spots...you see it in their Grand Prix coverage...most exciting part of the race? doesn't matter...commercial break! Hopefully it won't be CAVENDISH HAS RENSHAWS WHEEL......50 METERS TO GO....."Ladies...does your man smell like me....." The really good news is we won't have to watch 2 million commercials for Mantracker..Repoman...Survivorman etc. Are there really people who have so much free time that they'll watch crap like that, or are channels like Outdoor Life designed to lose money to help out Rogers tax situation?

    I'm pretty sure they'll stick to VS's commercial time slots. But it is TSN, and you're
    theory may be right.

    Heck, why go to commercial when they can cut away to the umpteenth replay of Sportscentre instead. Hopefully their controller is more alert over the next few weeks...
