Well, you can say goodbye to any significant CFL coverage now that the "far superior" NFL has returned ...
Oh yes, this is my favourite time of the year. The time of year when I can find out any little fact about any unknown NFL player by turning to any Canadian sports channel at any time. NFL this, NFL that. I hear people saying, "Oh, football season starts tonight! Better enjoy it while it lasts, it's a long offseason once it's gone in January." By my check, football season started in JULY.
Honestly. This is one of my biggest peeves (and I'm sure I'm not the only one on this board who feels this way). Yeah, I'll admit the NFL makes a lot more money than the CFL. But why the need to cover it more extensively in Canada? Why the need to ignore the CFL once the FOREIGN league starts up? I'm not saying don't cover the NFL at all ... but come on media, look close to home! To me, there's no excuse or reason to cover the CFL less than the NFL. Frankly, the media should continue to cover the CFL MORE than the NFL. We are in CANADA, after all ... should the CANADIAN football league not be the most accessible?
This is not to bash the NFL ... I enjoy watching the NFL, but I have no passion for it. I try and watch every CFL game; there's usually no NFL game that I have to take time out of my day for. But football is still great, and there are a (few) fun things about the NFL.
But HONESTLY - as long as we're in Canada - we should be able to hear more about the CFL than the NFL!
