Do they even teach geography in the United States ? A.J.Cole of the Raiders has no clue . The next time you hear that the states is the greatest country in the world, remember that Americans couldn’t find Canada on a world map. "That’s some educational system you got there Cletus "
I wonder if Peg football fans will get to see any starters in tonight’s pre-season game ? Ticket prices are a joke for a hit and giggle game .
Pat Lynch ( at least I can find Greenland on a map )
8)Wow Pat, do they even teach spelling in Canada ?? :
You are quoted here as saying “next time you here that” :-[
Shouldn’t that be “next time you hear” ?? Obviously as you say about A.J. Cole, having no clue,
then that statement should also apply to you !! :-X :-X
Must be the result of that great Canadian education you got !! :
Kids coming out of high school in this country can’t even tell time on a normal clock, has to be a
digital clock. They can’t even cursive write and can’t even make proper change in a store if they
don’t have a calculator in their dainty little hands.
Yep, that is some great educational system we have here in Canada, that’s for sure !! : :
I really don’t get it . Why not play the game on a regulation CFL field ? Moving the goalposts caused the field issues .
The irony of the dangerous field conditions is that one of the teams, the Raiders, plays on a “dogpatch” of a field in Oakland .
An interesting outcome of playing on a Canadian field could have been the chance to see outstanding runners and receivers show their talents without the confines of the NFL shoe box stadia . Can you imagine a Drew Brees or Russel Wilson running wild on our Canadian field ?
Pat Lynch (the old guy who remembers Bills vs TiCats )
I pretty well agree with you…we shouldn’t blame our American cousins for their lack of knowledge about other countries, it’s their education system or lack of ! My bother-in-law had to to pay a very large premium to have “world history & geography” taught to his kids while stationed in the U.S.
Yes Pat. I remember going to that game. In the very early '60s ('60? '61?) the 'Cats played an Exhibition Game against the old AFL Bills at Civic Stadium. And we beat them, too!
Ah, those old “Wiener Winner” seats in the East end of the stadium.
