This is pathetic, I'm absolutely outraged. The CFL wants people to take them seriously, but they want us to listen to the radio during the pre-season like this is the 40's? Sad and a half, There's no way I'm listening to it, I'll just have to wait for highlights or if they're not even going to do that, I'll have to wait till my season ticket's kick in on the 23rd...... :roll: Lot's of waiting up to this point I guess another week won't hurt.
I'm as big a fan as any, but some of those NFL exhibition games do very, very little to showcase the game. In a word, they're terrible.
I'd love to get a sneak peak at this seasons' installment, but I think I'll be fine listening on the radio. Ideally, there'd be a webcast of it then the hardcore fans can find it, but it doesn't fuel any notions of sloppy football. . I'm just not sure the inevitablly mistake and penalty filled game is worth a national broadcast.
On one hand I almost want to hold off and watch the 'reveal' on Canada Day...might skip these dress rehearsals. They just monkey with your emotions.
But does anyone really enjoy the preseason games? Next Tuesday, I'll be excited in the first half then after that, the game goes really down hill once the starters are out of the game. I love football but preseason football isn't that exciting.
Good thing for us is that the game is broadcast next Tuesday on Cable 14.
I have said this before, if Sportsnet wants to get into CFL football or CBC wants to get back in, they should pick up the preseason games. It may just be a way in the next time that the tv contract is up.
