Tony Gallagher is being interviewed by Glen Suitor and David Pratt right now on the Team 1040 about his article last week. HIs article was initially about how the Lions have no reasonable QB options...and then he inserted the following three paragraphs:
Note the term "win on a regular basis" is used. This is not to say they couldn't win a Grey Cup, which is something completely different.
After all, we are talking about the CFL, where if you somehow manage to scrape into the playoffs, you're only three wins away from a championship, no matter how bad your record may have been over the course of a season.
And at that championship point, everyone jumps up and down and pats each other on the back and acts as though they've cured cancer and declare themselves winners, when in fact somebody has to come away with a trophy in a league that has just eight teams.
Suitor is serving him up right now. You can listen live at team1040.ca
Gallagher is a tool. He says the dumbest things and then tries to backpedal out of it. He has basically been saying that the CFL is an easy league to play in, win in, and that it's really for little kids. He rips the league because 6 of 8 teams make the playoffs, which according to Tony is around 70%...but he's not sure. Ha!
Oh boy....he just called the NFL, "the REAL football league, the MAJORS."
...ooops....I forgot to give the link for the article: http://www2.canada.com/theprovince/colu ... cb65754af3
