Canada sends its best to the USA, after a short period of time, its a MASSIVE failure.
Yet, because it was the Toronto Media, Jay & Dan, attempting to "make it" in America, then failing miserably and getting fired. These 2 failed media folks are being championed, and are retreating back to Toronto media hailed as hero's? WOW.
When the CFL did the same, it has been labeled as minor league in the Toronto media ever since.
Jay & Dan are now minor league? Maybe they should get that anti CFL idiot Jennifer Hedger as their 3rd wheel.
I was thrilled when they went to the US because it meant their moronic ramblings weren’t on TSN anymore. They should have stayed in the states. Someone told Onrait he was funny and sadly he believed them.
Some view this as her being out of default anti-CFL but I don’t necessarily think this is the case as we know certain sorts in Toronto have been able to brainwash people that the CFL isn’t worth the time of day since it’s not one of the truly major NA pro sports leagues.
I understand exactly what the poster is talking about. Perhaps it’s a Toronto media thing and if you’re not from T.O then you don’t understand how bad and hostile a lot of the Toronto media is towards the CFL/Argos. T.O media types are always calling the CFL minor league or NFL rejects, most have little
Understanding on how football player are selected to make roster or even how you need different types of players then the NFL at certain positions in the CFL. However when you turn the tables on these T.O media members and simply say, by using their own logic, THEY must be minor league reporters because
If they were any good they would be working down in the US, these T.O media types go ballistic on you
While I get the idea of what he is saying. Fact is Jay and Dan are a horrible act. So trying to call them heros is well an opinion and nothing more. Those that enjoy them are of course entitled to think of them as they wish
Toronto media who portray the cfl as fail don't do so because of failed usa expansion. Their reasons go far beyond that. Obviously I don't agree with that opinion, but to each their own. Much like Jay and Dan are fail because of their horrible act, not because they failed in usa
Agree although since they are Canadian I have a real tendency to not crap on them too much, but they need to move on from that schtick no question. Doesn't work any more. Toast along with Cherry but somehow Cherry lives on as some sort of Canadian thug icon at least in the hockey world. I honestly can't figure that one out but it, er he, is what it is.
Fired? Perhaps, but ESPN isn't exactly winning ratings wars down here. Does anybody even watch "Sportscenter" any more, regardless of who's hosting?
I'd say they were more the victims of a fragmented market than lack of interest; it's hard to dislike a pair when you don't even know they exist. Besides, nobody, except the people actually in the room at the time, know what what their deal was and for how long. Calling it a failure is nothing less than presumptuous.
