Unbelievable! CFL mocked by sportswriter

[i]Well, well… You just knew that because of Da Bears hiring Trestman, some american sports writer would use the occasion to take a dump on the CFL.
Mike Freeman of CBS sports has written an article that is so ignorant, It made Johnny puke!

He says his grandma can coach in the Grey Cup, and that we don’t play defense, among his many stupid quotes. Johnny would love to see this clown suit up and take a few hits! [/i]

He could be related to Senior.

Never mind he’s related to Roy Shivers

Must be a retired Chicago server who doesn't know where Montreal is. :roll:

Looks like he took a few too many hits already- although he may have a point about Cutler.

a Canadian posted the following in the comments section of that article:

[b] 5 days ago No, the CFL is a joke, the Bears are a joke so it is a perfect match! Freeman's article is a bit ridiculous in the way it is written but it is all true. I live in Canada and the CFL is a..... joke league. 8 teams...I would hope any reasonable coach could be a winner frequently when you only have to plan against 7 other teams each and every year.[/b]
By his own misguided logic, the Golden Age 6 team NHL and it's numerous Hall of Famers were a joke.. The 8 team NFL was a joke...including all HOF'rs and builders. etc etc etc. The list goes on..

and by the same token, watered down/diluted talent makes for a thrilling and exciting pro sport, where the water-boys of yesteryear are today's million dollar stars.

Most of the comments made on the CBS site about that article are very critical of it. There are many comments to the effect that it is insulting, uninformed, and lousy journalism. There were quite a few comments that were complimentary and knowledgeable about the CFL. Also, a few fans noted that the writer has lied about his Resume previously and been fired for it, and wonder why CBS could have been so foolish as to hire this clown.

So he's a fool. Easy to ignore.

People in North America have just gotten used to 30 team leagues I guess, and find it hard to take anything less than that seriously?


Great find johnny. :thup:

I'm sharing this with the other forums where there's more of 'my kind'. :stuck_out_tongue:
