Former Winnipeg Blue Bombers head coach Paul LaPolice will join the CFL on TSN panel leading up to the 100th Grey Cup playoffs.

LaPolice will work alongside host Dave Randorf and analysts Chris Schultz, Matt Dunigan, Jock Climie, and Milt Stegall for the remainder of the CFL season.

“The fact that anything can happen in the playoffs is what makes the next few weeks in the CFL so interesting — and fans will definitely be in for some thrilling games and a few surprises,” LaPolice said in a statement.

Free ‘TSN Jets’ Preview Ending on Shaw

Free ‘TSN Jets’ Preview Ending on Shaw

The free preview of the TSN Jets channel will expire today for viewers on Shaw and Shaw Direct.

The preview period was originally supposed to end December 1, but Shaw extended it to December 6 after a one-time glitch prevented viewers from watching the first half of an earlier season Winnipeg Jets game. The company blamed the outage on a switching error, and said measures were put in place to ensure it doesn’t happen in the future.

The cost of the channel is $9.95 per month.

MTS subscribers had access to the channel free of charge until October 31, which is also now $9.95 per month.
