Ever since we lost Pinball and Doug Flutie from playing, I have found it harder to enjoy CFL as much. I feel like over the 35yrs I was a CFL FanaticAddict, from 66 to 01+, I have seen all the best.
Dont believe we will ever see the likes of Flutie, or Moon again. Lucky to see another Dunigan.
Don't beleive we will ever see the likes of Pinball again, or Fernandez, or Gizmo.
So many others. How can anybody measure up, let alone surpass all the greats I have seen, on both sides of the ball. Will there ever be another Lui in BC?
Every yr, I find it harder to really get behind this player or that. sigh
For last 5+ yrs I have been fighting growing apathy as the last of my favorites, like Adrian Smith, disappear one by one. Oh woe is me, what am I to do, sob.
No matter what promising player shows up, I keep looking for the next winfield, pinball, dunigan, francis, quick parker, etc.
Either the talent pool is so much better now that its harder for any one player to shine so well, or, I really have already seen the best I am ever going to see.
People today might get at the top of the stats for various reasons, but I dont think it will mean they wereare better.
Corey Holmes my favorite player now, but I would rather have pinball, or craig ellis even.
