I read a lot of posts on here, many of them about rule changes and expansion and lack of this lack of that. NFL comparisons.
My simple question to all who care to read and reply is:
Why can't we just be happy with what we've got?
I'm one of the biggest, fiercest and most passionate CFL fan out there and I strongly defend this league against people who knock it without any good reasons or explanation!
I don't like seeing so much talk about needing to make these changes and having to add this, take away that! it's truly sad that us as Canadians, who are fans of the CFL can't sit back and just enjoy what we are given!
We don't have the huge TV contract like the NFL does.. our league may not be #1 in the Country as far as popularity amongst it's nation, and unfortunately we have a city who seems to think the CFL isn't good enough because it's not American made! (I'd love to get my hands around the necks on some of those guys in the Media and shake them real good!)
Like what the hell does the CFL have to do in order to stop the people from constantly creating controversy!
First it's Ted Rogers and What's his face from the Blue Jays.. And now Melnyk In Ottawa opens his big fat mouth!
This league is a really amazing league when you truly break it down part by part!
We have great talent! Our players are embraced by the community and are involved within the charities and public groups!
The games rules and style is truly a great sight to be seen everytime you go see a game live!
So why must people have to constantly whine and complain about our great league? SERIOUSLY??
The Rules when you truly think about them are much better than the rules in the NFL. I can easily name at least 10 rules from that NFL league that truly are confusing and very difficult to understand.. You then look at our rules and you can see how much better they are!
Football in Canada will never die.. despite what Eugene Melnyk believes! This league has come a long way from the days of the late 80's when times looked bleak and no one really knew where we'd be in 5 years..
We all just need to sit back, and enjoy what they give us ! love the sport! support it with everything you've got and be thankful for what we have here!
afterall, you could have no choice but to watch a boring NFL game between two lousy teams that have no chance in hell of winning the SuperBowl.
