MONEY IS IN THE NFL BUT THE SHOW IS IN THE CFL !
(L’argent se trouve dans la NFL mais le spectacle se trouve dans la CFL)
I’ve been saying that for years. It’s time that my english friends knowns about that truth. Don’t you thing so ? End I’m not the only one…
«I am American and I moved to Toronto about 6 years ago, from Florida.
I have found a real love for the CFL and for the Argos. Personally I think that NFL is way overhyped and when you watch it you think to yourself "That's IT???". Always expecting more and waiting for something spectacular, which never actually happens. The CFL is exciting football with exciting players.
In Toronto, there seems to be a lot of NFL fans. Their rationale is "Toronto is a world-class city, we deserve a world-class league."
The fact is that the American media has over-hyped the NFL so much that even now Canadians think its a world-class league. They're just wannabees who want to have something in common with Americans. Its 'cool' in Toronto to talk about the NFL, because there are no domestic teams and it shows that you're "in" if you are knowledgable about the NFL. They wear NFL jerseys over CFL jerseys to show off. »
«- Think its pretty harsh to say that Canadians are unpatriotic because of the people who are NFL fans. The CFL is very popular in Canada, its 2nd to hockey. In Macleans magazine there was an article about how hockey is #1 in Canada, about 30% of canadians say that the CFL is their favourite sport with 13% being MLB and NFL. And i'm sure you'd get people who like the CFL and the NFL.
The fact is that the NFL is more accessable to watch. With there being so few teams in the CFL if you want to watch football, chances are you'll have to watch the NFL since there are more options. I love the CFL, I think the game is much better then the NFL, its faster, its more fan friendly, and I prefer it to the NFL. But its not always on TV while the NFL is.
I say F U to those people, the CFL is a better league, with different, more exciting kinds of players. Too bad some Canadians are too stuck up to realize it. It puzzles me that Canadians would be so un-patriotic, as well. The CFL is the best professional league you have, and a damn good one.
If I were Canadian, I would much rather watch Toronto vs. Montreal, then Houston vs. Arizona, for example. And even though I am not, I still do prefer the former. Maybe a Canadian NFL fan would like to fill me in?» - USA/Canadian blog.
I’m not perfectly bilingual put if a french canadien can hunderstand what americans fans say about our football you should understand it too !
Go als Go !
VIVE la CFL !
