TIME AFTER TIME: In Toronto, Doug Smith reported there are all kinds of whispers that "changes are afoot" for weeknight start times at Raptors' home games this season. Smith: "How would 7:30 p.m. weeknight starts suit you as opposed to the traditional 7 p.m. tips? It's not official but I’m hearing it from too many places and too many people to think it could be scuttled at this point." But the move just seems "far more of an inconvenience to all kinds of people than a solution to some perceived problem." It could "give the TV and radio guys a chance to do an extended pre-game show to fill the time but it also pushes back the end-of-game programming and that would preclude any kind of post-game" show (THESTAR.com, 7/30).
