q sports panel on Canadians' shameful shutout from NHL playoffs
q's sports culture panel thinks beyond the play-by-play to weigh in on the societal impact of sports stories. Not a fan? Not a problem. Our panel watches much more than the scoreboard.
Shad checks in with Toronto Star columnist Bruce Arthur, CBC host and reporter Sonali Karnick and sports editor at The Nation and host of the Edge of Sports podcast Dave Zirin.
At issue today:
- No Canadians teams have made the 2016 Stanley Cup playoffs. How should we cope with our great national shame?
- The Women's World Cup tournament was a smash hit commercial success. So why don't female soccer players get paid as much as their male counterparts?
- With the NCAA final four this weekend, we raise the perennial question: are college basketball players getting ripped off?
