You have to read the below from the CANOE site when I posed this question there. There is this guy Otis there, very funny and witty guy, I have no problem with him, and he actually despises the CFL with a passion, almost pathologically I would say the way he comes across but I'm no psych major. Anyway, you can read below, I'm mfrau BTW. I enjoy reading our bashers from time to time, it's just good fun entertainment for me and makes me love our league, as imperfect as it may be, more and more all the time:
Okay morons, you had to do it, didnâ€™t you!!! Bring up the Fâ€™cking CFHELL!!!
Iâ€™m just going to Fâ€™cking flip out!!!
No Iâ€™m not. Iâ€™m going to stay very cool, calm, and collected. Arrange my thoughts in a mature manner, establish the points of contention, present them in an orderly mannerâ€¦â€¦
Itâ€™s just the way the game is presented by our sports media that just begs for ridicule.
Toronto is playing Winnipeg. Do we need 4 analysts (trying to copy the US NFL) talking about the keys to Torontoâ€™s defense in this â€œcrucialâ€? midseason matchup?? For one thing we just did it last week when again the Argos played Edmonton. Guys, there are only 8 teams!!! Itâ€™s the same analysis week after week. â€œOur CFHELL team of analysts and expertsâ€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦. Give me a friggin break.
Crucial!!?? 3 out of 4 teams in each division make the playoffs!!! Unless you go 0-18 you have a chance to make the playoffs.
The days of 8 team leagues in any sport are gone. Itâ€™s small time!! Itâ€™s bush and not worthy of the exposure it gets on Canadian television.
Itâ€™s just fâ€™cking crap!!!! Just GARBAGE!!! GET it the Fâ€™ck off the Tube (sh!t, starting to lose itâ€¦â€¦..) @@#%$@!@&* AAAAHHHHHHHHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
RE: Why does the CFL actuall bother some Canadians?
Ok, now calm down Otis, I would never mean to get you in a state where something bad might happen to you like a big heart attack or something, this would play on my conscience for a long time - even with you!
But you may have hit the nail on the head as to what I was talking about with the 'bothering' part more than dislike when you mention it really gets under guys like yours skin with the TV and media coverage our league, oops, that probably is a sore spot with you, sorry, the CFL gets. And if you live in hamilton now, which I don't think you do, you would really get bugged walking down the street seeing big street banners with "Proud home of the TiCats". You'd need a real ability here to be able to tune out to keep your sanity.
But yes, I do really think it is too much media coverage which is the root "of the problem", shall we say. :lol:
