I posted this originally in the Hamilton section of the of the form
But I wanted to let other fans in the league know the injustice that has been done to a young 14 year old fan.
This young fan has been putting together YouTube highlight reels
On YouTube and I've been doing a fantastic job.
Well the CFL and YouTube played the Grinch to this poor young man
And took down his page.
The CFL just blew up huge marketing opportunity by not embracing this young man
They're wondering how to appeal to the youth. And this kid was doing that
Yes he only had a thousand followers. But if they would have left him alone the channel would have grown because of the excellent work the young kid is doing
Instead the CFL played Grinch and apply for copyright strikes against this young man
With the third strike YouTube removed the channel.
The CFL has to learn to Market and they could have used this young man's ideas
The CFL should apologize to you this young man return his YouTube channel
And bring him to Toronto and let him tour CFL HQ and TSN
Embrace young people who are enthusiastic about our league
Don't chastise them and push them into the arms of the four down leagues
We have something special if we don't get the youth involved
But our legal die
Well for the cfl wants to get the younger generation involved this is not the way to do it thats for sure. What they need is youngsters like this to promote the league not bash it. The commissioner really screwed the pooch on this.
So the leagues own home grown content is crap and here’s this 14 year old bustin his arse (where he became an actual fan) and built a channel that other fans and even active players followed to get their CFL content and the league, instead of reaching out and helping him, puts up the roadblocks and halts not only this young man’s great work, but has likely lost him as a fan. (Not to mention a great conduit to get more younger fans exposed to the game).
Yet again, the league office can’t get out of the way of themselves to succeed
