We have the best team in the CFl. We have exciting players all over the field and play exciting football.
We are drawing 25,000 fans. We are in first place. We won the Grey Cup----
The problem I see is what happens when BC starts to struggle? How many fans would we draw then?
Not sure what all the hype is around town with the CANUCKS considering they have WON NOTHING and the LIons seem to win the GREY Cup about once every 4 to 5 years. I cannot understand this?
Perhaps its the high percentage of immigrants in Vancouver who will not have an interest in football? Not sure what is its, but its UNACCEPTABLE and eventually when all the older fans stop going, we will FOLD--
The thing that annoys me the most is the sheer STUPIDITY of local people here. I have spoken to many people around 25 to 35 years of age and invited them to go to the LIONS games. The following things were said by these people- CFL is a joke, give me 1 month to train and I can make any CFL team? Another guy said CFL is a SEMI PRO league- Another guy said NFL is the only football that matters and that CFL is not a PRO league--
However the stupidity of these fans and general disinterest for CFl football here is an issue--
I can see from the attitude here, that CFL is becoming an afterthought, no one cares about the team, despite we have the best QB in the league and numerous standouts like HARRIS and Bruce, and Mitchell on defense.
If we can only draw 25,000k fans when we are clearly the best team in the CFL, we are in big trouble because it shows the fans here do not support or want a CFL team here-- IF the LIons moved to another canadian city I can assure you that they would draw well over 30k per game - EX OTTAWA-- IF Ottawa had this team there, they would be SOLD out every game or in HALIFAX also SOLD OUT EVERY GAME--
What can the Lions do to get the CITY's fans to WAKE up and use their BRAINS to support the ONLY REAL CHAMPIONSHIP team in our city, the BC LIONS, not the mickey Mouse yoga pant starbuck drinking CANUCKS.
