Rumor has it CBC is dropping the iconing "Hockey Night in Canada" theme song.


This is just wrong.


Anyone else hear about this?

CBC pays $500 everytime the song is played. They have renewed the rights to the song every year with Dolores Claman, but they decided not to renew the rights to the song this year - so no more Hockey Night in Canada thing. Maybe the CBC will outlaw Christmas next because it too is a tradition, and has been around for years.....very dumb idea CBC....

they say its because they want to go in a new direction but i think its more to due with a lawsuit filled by the owner of that songs rights also they were seeking exactly the same amount as the previous contract cbc is acting real stupid

Yeah I heard this yesterday too. If they drop the song it will be a BIG mistake, it's a Canadian icon and a Saturday night tradition. But wasn't there a rumor a few years ago that they were going to drop Grapes?? Hopefully, they get their sh*t together!

I walked down the ile at my wedding to this song and think this is unacceptable.
Don't mess with a man's wife,
Don't mess with a man's car,
Don't mess with a man's favorite TV show theme song!

This is such BS :flame:. It's like the time a few years back that Ron Maclean was going to leave. The public backlash fixed that quick and I think it'll be the same thing with this.
