Artie, PiCat and all,
He even said something about the CFL being very popular in Texas, which kind of confirms my BS theory.
I have no idea, though in my opinion the San Antonio market is ripe for the picking in football-crazy Texas. The problem is just don't conflict with high school football Friday nights, college football on Saturdays, and of course the NFL. :?
From what I have read, it seems to me that in Canada media ownership is more intertwined directly with ownership or influence by the federal government than in the US where it is more of a game of appearances of free media with heavy indirect government influence (far more influence on what NOT to report as opposed to not what TO report), so it could be that there was in fact some unidentified conflict of interest between the CFL, the CBC, and/or the Canadian government that led to its deletion by the CFL? :?
Hey this is a CFL forum it's their call in any case if any of this is the case. The NFL plays some of the same games with the more controversial happenings and undermining though substantiated criticism down here. :roll:
Note that I am tremendously more impressed however by the content and management of this fine forum by the CFL as opposed to that of the NFL down here, where all you get are a bunch of mostly homers going back and forth with tweets instead of offering constructive commentary on the game and happenings. If you have seen the US show SportsNation on ESPN, that audience is the dominant one and a fine example of what I mean. :roll:
I'd like to say the NFL could take notes from the CFL on this count for sake of a far better forum, and I am sure it could, but the problem moreover is the less informed fan base overall down here it seems.
Don't get me wrong many folks spend a whole lot of time like me to make themselves more heavily informed on football, but so many more contributing are so heavily uninformed that the informed are drowned out on many public fora. :thdn:
Score big for the CFL on this count as well. :cowboy:
