  1. One thing that I noticed on even the French language coverage on RDS and V is that handball gets conspicously absent until when the handball quarterfinals commence. You would assume since Quebec is the Canadian hotbed of team handball (if I can it that with the more notable players come from there) and its cultural allegiances with France that perhaps RDS, RDS2, RDS Info, and V would show more, particularly France’s men’s and women’s handball games more frequently to tailor the coverage more as intended to the French-Canadian audience and likely the Norwegian women, Brazil, Sweden, and hosts Great Britain from the start. The sport could use more televised publicity. English Canada isn’t as big on the sport, so I’m not worried about them as much.

    • I don’t think there is a hotbed of handball in Canada, per say. It’s a great sport, but certainly not as popular as most of the other team sports. I also doubt that Quebec cares about French national teams 90% of the time.

What do you think?
