Well, the Winnipeg Sun tells us to "shove it" (so to speak) :lol:
BIG-CITY B.S.: So the owners of the Tiger-Cats and Toronto Argonauts want a bigger piece of the CFL's revenue pie?
That's the word from out east, and I can only imagine the reaction that suggestion got around the boardroom table.
The argument is the highly populated southern Ontario market contributes more to the pot in the form of corporate sponsorships and TV ratings, so the Ticats and Argos should take more from it.
To which we say, "hogwash" to Hogtown. Steel City, that's a pipe dream.
Steve Milton of the Hamilton Spectator actually suggested TV audiences and "the spark of national media interest all originate in the Big Smoke."
I'd hazard a guess there are more TV viewers watching the average three-down game in the West than there are in Toronto.
But what do we know, out here in the colonies.[url=http://www.winnipegsun.com/sports/columnists/paul_friesen/2009/10/16/11421356-sun.html]http://www.winnipegsun.com/sports/colum ... 6-sun.html[/url]
