I am just amazed by the emotional reaction the CFL brings out of people. From enjoyment to hatred to ignorance to embarassment to disdain.
This week I have read and heard so many viewpoints on the bloody Grey Cup, a mere football game, that it made me realize that the Grey Cup is bringing out people’s true feeling of this country as a whole.
Because the Grey Cup is a true Canadian symbol. And for whatever reason we have people in this country who have no respect for this coutnry. And its disguised in their hatred of Canadian football.
And their love for anything American is disguised in their longing for an NFL franchise. Which is glorified and revered, even if it isn’t one tenth as popular as the CFL. But to them it’ll be never as good as what the Americans do.
Hard to beleive we can’t just enjoy the game for what it is. But these over the top positvie and negative reactions to the big game go alot deeper then just football in my opinion. Its about the country itself.
