I know, me too. When Calgary scored straight 10 points on Winnipeg and it was 10-0, I thought that the Bombers are starting to fall behind and that might be the end of the Bomber reign. Although, after the McRae touchdown, no doubt, I had lost every bad thought I had!
Last Friday I was enjoying the game between WPG and CGY when an unfortunate thing occured. The broadcast team consisted of Matt Dunigan, Who I have found to be somewhat amusing at times, and Dustin Neilson, who I find quite irritating. Despite that I was enjoying the game action, even though the Stampeders were making life pretty difficult for my favorite team; the Blue Bombers.
In the closing seconds of the first half Dunny and Dusty became so distracted by some guy in the stands that they COMPLETELY forgot about the game and babbled on about this guy. In those closing seconds there was a penalty called. Dunny and Dusty never even noticed as they babbled on and on. I tried to catch the announcement of the penalty by the referee, but the booth boobs were talking and laughing so loud I couldn’t hear what was said.
During halftime I went to the play-by-play on the league website to find out about the penalty, but the new format was so hard to navigate that I gave up in frustration.
I have read that you have asked us to be patient while the new system is completed, but at the rate this process is preceding I may not LIVE that long!
From a standpoint of information, the CFL has torn its house down and moved into a tent while the new house is under construction by the Three Stooges.
I have defended the CFL in some fan discussions by saying that some criticism would be better directed at TSN/ESPN or other entities. I don’t have that argument to make anymore.
