Why scoring is down... duhh!

Marty York misses the painfully obvious in last week's report:

Scoring is down for the second straight year... no s**t Sherlock!

The 'Cats have been totally offence-less for that exact amount of time! Coincidence? I think not!

In an 8-team league, when one of the teams is unable to score a frickin' TD in 70% of its games your overall scoring is gonna' decrease!

Gereatric QBs ain't the problem... WE ARE!!!

Offensive and defensive dominance has always had a history of being cyclical. Nothing new here.

The NFL would appear bush league if they had the same ratio of inept QBs as the CFL does.

I like Marty York. He is always willing to express the part of the truth glacoma sufferers don't want to believe.

Marty York is a hack. Case closed.

I love his “source.” A former star quarterback. Who would that be Marty? Oh right, I forgot. It’s just your opinion dressed up to look like someone will actually talk to you.

Marty York fabricates stories, and that’s all there is to it.

His “comprehensive” breakdown of each quarterback. What the hell was that? That was just Marty taking issue with every QB in the league because no one in the CFL will talk to him anymore due to his wretched reputation.

If Marty York told me my name was Jeff, I’d check my birth certificate. Twice.

IMO the NFL does have the same ratio of inept QB's. How many would you say are elite in the NFL? Other then P. Manning, Brady, Brees there's not that much to get excited about.

The QB position was at the ALL-TIME worst level a few years ago in the NFL. It was such a big problem, that teams like the Baltimore Ravens had to transform the whole league by winning purely on boring defence with a loser QB. The Whole NFL Europe was created just for Quarterbacks, and that wasn't working out. Dickenson, Garcia, Ray, and even Flutie got their chances because of the weak field. I mean come on Bills fans, was Rob Johnson embarrasing or what? But alas, that was the NFL, so it was OK. Perception is everything.

I honestly can't believe that anyone actually reads that column and I don't think that Marty York has enough respect from anyone in the CFL or his peers that he should, supposedly, be quoting them verbatim. I think that he sits on a situation until everyone has a say and then uses all of the quotes from the other media to make it look like he actually has an opinion. Plagiarism at its sneakiest.
I always felt that the CFL, before the season starts, should allow Marty York to present the Grey Cup to the Toronto Argonauts, he would probably wet his pants in the process.
And I can't believe that he wrote this.....
"Really, Desjardins ought to be ashamed of himself. The Ticats are 0-4 because they are a wretched team that he is responsible for, not because there’s anything wrong with the CFL’s Canadian officials."
York wouldn't know a wretched team if he played for one and he certainly couldn't tell a good official from a bad one, unless they weren't favouring the Argos.
Marty York is another guy who probably got beat up a lot when he was a kid.

"Really, Desjardins ought to be ashamed of himself. The Ticats are 0-4 because they are a wretched team that he is responsible for, not because there’s anything wrong with the CFL’s Canadian officials."

Good for Marty. He couldn't have been any more explicitly accurate.
