The play by play men and colour analysts in CFL broadcasts largely ignore th defensive side of the ball. And it's starting to get very frustrating.
I wish I had the time to review the game tapes from last night, and tell you how often the player making the tackle was ignored; not even mentioned. But I can tell you it was a SIGNIFICANT amount. It appears as though Rod Black, Duane Forde decided the defense wasn't important enough for mention. This is a major ommission and really detracts from the telecast. The consistently break down the offence, but RARELY make reference to defensive alignments or schemes.
I don't want to hear about how the CFL is focused on offence, and wants to market its offensive stars. That's garbage. You can do that all you want, but by ignoring the defence the league/TSN is doing a great disservice. Do you think you could go an entire series in the NFL without mention of the defence? No way! But that happened many times last night, and I'm sick of it.
One would think Glen Suitor, as a former DB, would pay more attention to the defensive side of the ball, but it is largely ignored unless there is a sack, tackle for loss, INT, or knock down. This is unacceptable. Now, I did not watch the late game last night, but the late crew last night(aka the #1 crew, has been horrible about this for years). It should not be difficult to simply say, "Moreno in on the tackle." Just let us know who's involved in the play. It's your job.
Give us the details about both sides of the ball; it shouldn't be too much to ask.
Any real football fan should find such an obvious oversight of the defence unacceptable.
