I"ll take a stab at answering, or at least commenting, on a few:
- I don’t know why, but DA never seemed to get the respect he deserved while he was playing either. He never seemed quite as spectacular as Flutie, but he was consistently very good for a long time.
Maybe the fact that he bounced around a fair bit has to do with it? If he’d played the bulk of his career in one city, like AC did in Montreal, maybe he’d be considered the face of that franchise for that generation and would garner more respect?
I suspect it’s more to do with trolling the ever-passionate Roughrider fans than actually hating VY.
What mosquitoes? None here yet, and that’s one aspect of summer I don’t mind waiting for.
