The beauty of this CFL FORUM is that most of the posts are insightful, which reflects the intelligence and CFL knowledge of all (almost) posters. Sure we get hot under the collar. And I thank you all for that.
Have you ever tried to talk hockey in the NHL forums? What a bunch of morons.
Things like “I hope Ottawa blows up because they steal our tax money”, to the old tiresome Senator fan’s mantra of “Leafs Suck”. And then there’s the stupid “Bertuzzi” rants.
And speaking of differences in mentalities, there’s the difference in organized minor hockey and minor football. My son plays on a successful and competitive National Capital Mosquito football team where everyone is treated equally and cuts only based on talent were made. Whereas his friend (an Ottawa Valley top ranked goalie) was the last cut from an Ottawa AA midget hockey team because one of the sponsors (a local Doctor with deep pockets) threatened to shut off the money tap if his son (another goalie of less talent) was cut.
So guess who didn’t make the team?
I love you CFL nuts. :oops:
And now I’m going over to a friends house and suck back a few suds on this beautiful Ottawa autumn afternoon.
