I received a complimentary copy of the new Sportsnet magazine in the mail today. I wish I hadn't! It made my blood boil! Billed as: Canada's All-New Sports Magazine, it featured Don Cherry on the cover along with three other hockey stories and a large corner reference to the NFL! The only reference to the CFL on the cover was a smallish upper right reference to: Why the CFL is dead in Toronto (a one page article)! The only other significant reference I could find to the CFL (after a quick perusal) was a one pager on who might win the Grey Cup.
This supposedly Canadian magazine has only two out of 98 pages ( one of which is completely negative) dedicated to the CFL the week before the playoffs! This is absolutely pathetic. It's time we got after our media, especially the clowns at Sportsnet, who could single-handedly raise the profile and popularity of the CFL by playing it up a bit.
Send them your condolences, Guys. Let them know that our league, the oldest and only significant Canadian league deserves to be treated with respect.
