Well, here it goes. I have previously gone on record documenting over the years how we are slowly making inroads in better coverage here in the self proclaimed Centre of the Universe and wannabee US state. But, all it takes is a day like today to make me think otherwise.
Got my two papers, the left wing so called “All Canadian” Toronto Star and to balance my diet the much needed and right wing reality check of the Toronto Sun.
On the front page in both but especially the Star was the NBA first round pick of the Craptors.
Once inside the Sport section, the Star devoted page 1 and 3 on more of this nonsense. Meanwhile, the Argos with a day before their game in Vancouver there is nothing. Nada.
The Sun sports also went crazy with pages 1,2 & 3 totally devoted to this nonsense. The Argos you say, had a small story on page 9.
Therein lies the problem as these two idiotic Editors determined just like the clueless Sports Manager of the Fan 590 Radio in Toronto the pecking order.
This is for the NBA and Craptors who are not even on the radar of Sports in this country. Last weeks survey of sports confirmed same and how our CFL was numbwer two in popularity. The TV rating for the NBA are pitiful(averaging around 40,000 per telecast).
It certainly makes one long for the love of our sport which our friends out west seem to have and relish in.
