For a league that brings it big ratings, the CFL sure takes a back seat on their Sportcentre show.
Tonight for example the NFL got the main coverage. With Chris Shultz doing something called Risky Business. Where he breaks down the upcoming games and their importance. It was all serious coverage.
Then they mention the Friday Argos game. And what is the story? Not the fact the ARgos can clinch first with a win. Or how the Roughriders will play. Or about various player injuries.
No, the main story is about the guy kicking at half time for the million bucks. The game doesn't seem important. Its all about the halftime event. In fact I wonder why TSN just doesn't show the half time?
IT seems TSN just can't accept the popularity of the CFL. They're stuck in that old routine of giving the baseball, basketball and NFL priority.
While the NFL gets the indepth serious coverage, the CFL except for game days gets next to nothing. TSN for some reason doesn't think its important.
In fact if you check the ticker at the bottom of the screen, baseball, basketball, the NFL and NHL are grouped together. The CFL is listed after the bloody PGa! Far from the supposed "big four". That right there shows where TSN is coming from. But why, I don't know?
