All 'Caps Matches to Be Televised on TSN

Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

It should be a little easier to catch a Whitecaps game next season

You've all probably heard the news by now, so I'll be brief. The Vancouver Whitecaps and TSN have reached a deal to broadcast all of the Whitecaps matches on the station beginning in 2014, while also expanding the roles of on air talent, like Luke Wileman and Jason DeVos.

According to the press release, the boys will be a bigger presence on twitter throughout the year, and will also include regular news reports, and analysis. TSN had already lost the NHL to Sportsnet, so I imagine they wanted to sink their claws into something to steady themselves. They've done that with the Vancouver Whitecaps.

What does this mean for us? Well, matches should be easier to catch, especially when you go out with friends to a sports bar. It means a stronger commitment to promoting the game, and the team, which can only be seen as a triumph. In essence, the deal isn't going to change much, but it's still has to be considered a victory for MLS, and more importantly, the Vancouver Whitecaps.

From my point of view, as a guy that uses his computer for the majority of his sports viewing, as long as MLS Live still gets to broadcast Whitecaps matches, I'm okay with all of this.

What do you guys think?
