Attendance was strong? I'll give you this much - Those who actually showed up made a ton of noise. But how about those who did not show up? That place was almost half empty. How's that possible for a playoff game, especially in a city the size of Toronto? I feel bad for true Argos fans - Their city does a poor job representing and has for quite some time.
TSN must have used CGI on all those empty red seats because I didn't see hardly any on the broadcast. :
On a side note, do you not see the irony of making that post in this particular thread (hint: re read the title ::)). To clarify, I do see the irony in making this post after opening by calling the poster a "Protagonist".
There was lots of conflict about the refereeing in Toronto you missed it you came here too late Kev . Big hit first quarter on Glenn .
And someone who has the moniker evil doctor on a CFL site calling me negative is just Ironic . Good one . I replied to someone thinking of giving up on the league which we should listen to and ignore at the peril of the league's interest . I replied in kind as to what should be done in my opinion .
While you evil sent a snarky goodbye Felicia meme to the poster . That helps .
It is you who need to get over yourself. You decided to use a schoolyard nickname for Toronto over and over and over and over…again. It is you who has decided to lecture hardcore CFL fans (that is why we spend our time on an internet message board, casual fans don’t) on how to be fans and you who set your own standards that must be surpassed to be considered a fan.
Get over yourself and join the discussion or just go away.
I never knew there were requirements for fandom. To quote a very learned person to our south "Who knew it was so complicated? Nobody knew."
If we could get this in a checklist so I don't miss anything. Wait, I can modify my "protagonist spotter" checklist. It's on my desk anyway as I am using it right now. I think I have spotted the elusiveinterneticus troglodytarum. 8)
Can you attend a CFL game ? A CFL game ? as in single ? as in just one ? Have to answer no , as I've attended way more than just one game in my lifetime . Just a rough estimate on my part but I'd say a ball park figure over the years has me at somewhere between 350 to 400 CFL games that I've witnessed live over the years .
Can you purchase team/league merchandise ? Yes sir , I certainly have and I certainly can . Over the years I've purchased merchandise anywhere from team jerseys , tee-shirts , sweaters , hoodies ,pants , jackets , hats , toques , scarfs , mitts ,gloves , socks , flags , playing cards , mini footballs , pennants , buttons , coffee mugs , beer steins , coasters , game day programs , books , blankets , towels , photos , media guides etc etc . Excuse me if I left anything out BUT hopefully this answers your question .
Can you watch CFL all season long and not just the playoffs ? Yup , have been now for going on over some 48 yrs . My dad took me to my first game back in "68" and I've been watching and going ever since .
Do any of those things and you're a fan........So do I qualify ? do I meet your criteria ? Did I pass the test ? ....... Or am I officially in your books just another casual observer ? :
