A quote by Bob Young in a June 24th Globe & Mail article by Rachel Brady titled “CFL Mounts Fan Blitz to Reverse 2016 Ticket Slump”…
“Coaches and players need to understand that they’re in the business of entertaining first and of winning football games second”.
Really Mr. Young?
If that’s the case, why doesn’t the CFL get rid of points and scoreboards and all those boring details and just decide games based on number of fans in the seats, television and portable device ratings and favourite team contests?
As vice-chairman of the CFL board of governors, why don’t you suggest to your colleagues that the next commissioner should be a Vince McMahon clone so they can run the league like the WWF?
Tell your coaches and players that winning doesn’t matter any longer as long as the fans are being entertained. Based on that premise, your team’s no-show against the Argos on Sunday must be deemed a success since Argos’ fans were being thoroughly entertained throughout!
Frankly Mr. Young, your statement is a joke. What the he!! were you thinking?
