I really need to get this rant out of my system, so I'm going to air it out with a bunch of CFL fans.
I have a cousin that lives in Hamilton. He HATES the CFL. He thinks that the NFL is the be all and end all of professional football. There is no amount of marketing that will open up his eyes to the fact that there is quality affordable football being played in his very city. Because it's from Hamilton... it's automatically junk (in his mind).
He was arguing with me that NFL Europe is WAY better than the CFL. That players in the CFL only wished that they could play NFL-E because... it's affilitated with the NFL... According to him the CFL is 100% bush league.
So I'm just looking for some opinions on what other CFL fans think.
PS - There are many reason why I think that the CFL is better but one reason stands out (in my opinion) more than any... NFL-E is filled with farmhands... i.e. it's a minor league (like the AHL)... The CFL on the other hand is not a farm system. It is a "major league"... in theory. In hockey terms I feel like the NFL-E is like the AHL and the CFL is more like the Russian Elite League.
