This guy just will not stop.
After reading his article in the National Post, its obvious he has little idea what he's talking about.
He says every sponsor in Canada will flee the CFL and go to the NFL?
Why just the CFL? Will they not abandon our NHL teams as well?
I don't get his thinking.
CFL has competed head to head with the NHL, and also soccer, lacrosse, and baseball and the NBA.
And has had no trouble finding sponsors.
This guy highly overrates the interest in the NFL in Canada. And thats because he's been in the USA too long.
What he doesn't get is that we're a different country.
Where hockey is king and curling gets triple the NFL TV ratings head to head.
Ackles's is talking too much and is making the league look stupid. HE's yesterdays man. Cohon should reign this guy in.
All he's doing is giving fodder to the doomsday predictors.
