I never understand why when a CFL game isn't a 50-39 shootout that the main story is what a lousy game it was. Not that so and so won, or that so and so's defence played great. Its the fact the game wasn't entertaining enough for the fans.
I think the reason this happens is because there's not many real football knowledgable writers in the media. They don't understand the finer points of the game. So a defensive battle doesn't interest them.
So the ARgos game tonight was a barn burner. I don't ever hear critiques of the entertainment value of a Blue Jays game. Those who want wild endings every game aren't sports fans. Because sports doesn't work that way.
