To some degree I think CFL fans, myself included, like to have something to complain about much like that Rod Black and some of the Riders' fans.
But this year most of those Riders' fans have actually been great!
And Rod Black is so bad that he's so good such that now many like me actually want him to stay on air.
From whom else and where else could you hear such magic as with this proclamation in the second half last night?:
"Bullet holes in the cletes of the Redblacks ..."
Think about it - no Rod Black and we would lose the anticipation that comes with awaiting his next magical gem as we watch. He reminds me of Fred Willard so much.
But when there is too much other stuff to complain about other than Rod Black, sometimes Duane Forde like last night in that game thread by me, sometimes those Riders' fans delusion when they lose, well then it's tough to be happy I agree.
As an example, all the complaints about all the flags so as to place almost always wrongly the blame on the referees and not on the players have gotten old already along with the associated thread.
It's what we are complaining about that makes the difference not merely complaining itself, for complaining makes us happy too.
Don't be fooled folks - these are mostly happy times and don't take them for granted. And you keep right on complaining about some of that same stuff too!
