    If you turn him down though, you lose the noise of the crowd, which really adds to the occasion in this case. I found him mixing up the names more funny than annoying. IMO nothing can detract from a classic match!

    Give the Guy on CAN TV some cred, it cannot be often that they have to comment on Badminton matches (if ever before), it is hard to be a commentator. TV is easier though, try doing radio commentary :eek: !

    True, but did anyone see the game aired on CBC at 7:00am EST between Zhang Ning and Mia Audina? That was pretty bad commentating and they commentated like the viewers were utter newbs as though they've never seen badminton before (which is probably true :p)

    Anyway, it's great TSN is FINALLY airing some badminton. But it sucks because I'm busy at ALL those times... Thursday is school (2:30 pm est) for me and if it's only a half hour, I won't make it in time to watch :( . The Saturday one is like in the middle of the day when I'm out playing badminton practicing for tourny and sunday... if that's REALLY 1:30 am... then I'm scared if it's 4:30 am EST lol.

    yah, i watched (ZN vs MA), it was ~ 5am here. Volume was on but i didnt pay attention to the commentator, I can see what's going on. The big plus is when it's on cbc live, it was super clear compared to tapes and encoded disks, i can see the beads of their sweat.

    I was watching it with Satellite TV on a 65" TV teehee. MA was pretty close in that game but at the end, ZN pulled away and made it look pretty easy.

    Too bad TSN is using the World Juniors only as fillers though =/ I hope in the future they might air it for longer than 1/2 hour.

    The Tennis Masters ended at noon so TSN skipped the badminton show. Now, it is showing Canadian Sportfishing: Bottom Bouncing for Walleye. :(

    I didn't have a chance to watch the finals so I hope they will show them on this Sat and Sun. I did watch the other live matches in Richmond.

    TSN only showed the last few points of the last match instead of the full 3 matches. Tonight, they showed the man single and double. Other than the distracting and bad commentaries, it was quite good.

    It was a repeat of the first showing. Sure hope the remaining 2 shows have something new.

    I could be wrong. Could it be that this is the only show? There is only one same show and not a series of different shows. They show it on different dates but it doesn't mean that we are going to see different shows. I mean they could have summarized the whole things into one show.

    (Just checked back from the Ontario badminton website)
    It looks like they are the same.

    The first scheduled time is Sunday, April 03 at 9:30am
    Pacific Time (this is the re-scheduled date from March 13th) Other
    broadcast dates (same half hour program) include:

    That's very true. They really could just be re-airing that half hour show we saw the last night.

    Just sent my e-mail thanks to TSN. But, I don't think they check their e-mail. It is probably there just to show that they care about viewer opinions. (yeah, I am a skeptic).
