Okay, so I want to touch on a subject that was bothering me on Saturday at the game. (Not that everything wasn't bothering me but hear me out.....)
To begin with, I was really getting annoyed with the constant noise of all the advertisements going on during the game. It seemed like they were craming in as much as possible on every break in the action. I'm not just talking about a TV timeout or a change in possession....I'm talking about the 20 seconds between plays of a current drive.
Primus this, Rona that.....Maple Leaf, Mark's Work Wearhouse, Pizza Pizza, blah blah blah!
Now listen carefully, I know this is a neccessary evil and I know without these sponsors we might not even have the team to cheer for. (Not too mention Maas, Holmes, or any of the other big-time players we have this year.) This is not what I'm complaining about.
BUT what I am saying is this......
When a guy gets injured, isn't it disrespectful to have these Ads blaring away while the medical staff is on the field tending to the injured player?
I'm sorry, but it is bad enough that our offence has to huddle up and battle the "Ad Noise" (so much for homefield advantage) but when you start disrespecting the game and the players this way, it's a little too much for me.
Maybe I just care more about the actual game then the gameday experience, but I think we need to show a little more respect when a guy gets hurt.
Call me old fashioned but that's just the way I feel. Any thoughts on this?
