Amazing how this show, which spouts that it supposedly has the "pre-eminent" writers in Canada on its panel, always seems to have nothing good to say about the CFL.
Whenever they do mention the league, they always treat it as a joke. With DAve Naylor, a CFL writer believe it or not, making all kinds of snide comments. With Dave Hodge and the rest joining in.
Today they talked about the Hall of FAme inductions. And instead of talking seriously about why Pinball Clemons wasn't in the Hall, Damien Cox's only comment was "who cares about the CFL hall of fame".
And then Dave Naylor, again the Globe's CFL writer beleive it or not, with some big hillbilly grin on his face makes another snide comment. Then Dave Hodge makes another negative comment about the league. And then they go to commercial?
Never mind the CfL is the second most popular league in Canada. It seems that it doesn't matter to these folks. Because if it ain't from down south, they just don't care. OR even take it seriously.
But of course when they talk baseball, or basketball, or the NFL, its in hushed, praiseworthy terms.
Never mind there's millions of CFL fans out there who care about this story. (Then again this show also slagged the NHL as well. I guess until the Americans like hockey, its off their list as well).
These supposed "pre-eminents" could care less about the CFL despite its huge fan base, even in Hogtown. And these are supposedly the best writers in Canada? Maybe in Hogtown. But then again. That ain't saying squat.
