The Lions do stink, but the league however, does not. Give me a 35 - 24 CFL game anyday over a 9 - 6 NFL Monday night classic. How can you not like fast, offensive football, where it's obvious the guys are playing for the love of the game, and not drug money. To each his own though. While the NFL fans watch thier 6 - 3 thrillers, I'll be watching the CFL on CBC.
The league seems fast paced cause the defence is shite. You take Doug Flutie for instance. In the CFL he threw for probably 300 yards a game and rushed for another 50 - 60 yards. He could run arround linemen like nothing. In the NFL the players are bigger and faster. He can't run arround linemen like he could in the CFL. The quality of players are just all arround better in the NFL.
the cfl as a leagues is not very good...gone are the days that teams such as the argo's and stamps could attract heisman trophy winners....what we are now left with is a league catering to small towns such as winnipeg and hamilton for example. However the league cannot and will not work in a big city...such as toronto or vancouver...the people in these cities simply don't find 3 and outs or overweight cheerleaders..comeplete with cigarette burns attractive...the fact is...cfl is not good football but its canadian so i will drink beer and watch it!!!
