    Default 7:30pm Start times this season

    It hasn't been officially announced yet, but the Raptors are moving to 7:30 start times for weekday home games. They've been discussing it on The Fan yesterday and right now with Eric Smith.

    I think this is way better as it's gonna give people a chance to either get down there after work in good time, or even to get a few things accomplished at home, like make my dinner without missing the first quarter plus!

    I'm a big fan of this too. It gives you a chance to relax and I really don't see a difference in a game normally finishing at 9:30 and 10:00... I like it

    Really nice for parents out there too - getting the kids to bed and being able to watch most of the game just got a lot easier.

    I get way too anxious for games so waiting an extra half hour is not ideal for me

    This is huge for me, that's for sure. Plus taking the train in from Hamilton to catch games and still having time to eat will be a nice change.

    Many of us cut the cable before PVRs even hit the market.

    I cut the cable this past season. Way too expensive. I can watch on delay, but only if I wait for the game to end.

    I cut it last year and just do league pass which still allows one to play catch up.

    is unotelly just a DNS? do you still need to pay for league pass?
