In todays Calgary Sun (Aug. 21) they have a poll to pick the greatest Stampeder player of all time. Although it is highly likely that Doug Flutie will be the choice, it is a bit unfair when the story is captioned with a picture of Flutie and he is first on the list of 10 nominees. So much for unbaised polling.
On a personal side, I would pick Wayne Harris but I also subscribe to the theory that defense wins championships. The Thumper also played for enough years to make his a more appropriate pick. Although no one can deny Fluties greatness his best years were primarily as an Argonaut and his stay in Calgary was too short to put him to the top of the list in my opinion.
Where polls such as this fall down is that the majority of responders will have never seen Harris play and thus do not have the information to make an educated choice.
