TORONTO FC & MLS TV RIGHTS???

In a surprise move The Score - Canada's third all sports network behind TSN & Rogers Sportsnet has made a big move into the Soccer market. With ratings and interest in soccer at all time high in Canada - the Score has paid over $1 million per season to carry the English top flight. Some are suggesting that an MLS deal is also the works, with Gerry Dobson confirming Sportsnet is also interested.

Just my opinion, but The Score is not a great spot on the dial for MLS. Their numbers are weak and their non stop ticker is very bothersome!

A traditional station, TSN, Sportsnet and/or FOX would benefit Toronto FC much more!
