Just wanted to add to this (since there is no edit option after a few min.) that every football camp in the CFL and NFL has a "rookie show" as it's called. It doesn't mean a public event as in a real show for people to buy tickets to and such. It's an inner team event. Never ever seen one open to the public ever from any team in North America.
What you guys are missing is that this is a ritual right within football culture. Only veteran players have the true privilege of requesting and viewing random song performances by rookies and the rookie show. All we get are whatever tiny little clips they choose to show us on TicatsTV.
This is something that has been part of football culture (and kept within it) for decades so I am surprised fans don't realize that. I went through both the rookie hazing and veteran privileges when I played university ball. If you truly ever want to be part of this kind of stuff then you have to become a football player.
The players deserve at least one thing just for them and thats the way it's been for 30-40 years.
You seemed genuinely ignorant to the whole thing to me. Hence why I explained everything so throughly. I didn’t realize that experiencing this part of football culture first hand made me a know it all. Apparently when you experience something first hand and explain it to someone it makes me a know it all. I think maybe you’re a little delusional. Work on that…
Settle down? I was explaining something to someone who seemed ignorant to what they were asking about. I never showed any anger or anything close to that and then you came along with “settle down”. You seem a bit delusional yourself.
Wow this thread got ugly fast. Pretty silly. I didn't miss the point of the rookie shows. I just would love to see them. Obviously not going to happen, but based on what I"ve seen it would be hilarious to see.
