Former NHLer Bobby Ryan offered $50k to every member of Sportsnet's panel last night (barring Elliotte Friedman) to retire due to their incredibly biased takes.

Ryan Offers $50k For Sportsnet Reporters To Retire



Last night, the Ottawa Senators faced off against the Toronto Maple Leafs in what was an eventual 4-2 win for the Sens. The game was broadcast on Sportsnet and many were quick to point out the bias of the panel they put together.

Former NHLer Bobby Ryan jokingly offered each member of the panel aside from Elliotte Friedman $50,000 to retire on the spot.



"50k to each person on the panel (EF aside) to retire and stop talking. Sportsnet is horrendous"-Bobby Ryan

Clips of the commentary have gone viral and they are brutally biased towards the Leafs.

Clips Of The Bias



Following the game, Caroline Cameron was clipped asking essentially whether the Senators won this game or if the Leafs lost the game.


"Did [the Senators] get the win or did the Leafs kind of give it up?" - Caroline Cameron

Friedman was quick to come to the Senators' defense and immediately gave them credit for their win.


Fans took to social media to voice their displeasure for the panel as well.





All in all, Sportsnet may need a total overhaul to get rid of the bias towards Canada's largest franchise.
