All the media attention (most of it) will be on patrick and not on the biggest football game of the season in the CFL. On top of that, the Alouettes are gonna play it.
Even if Roy's retirement jersey wasn't that night, we would have played vs the Bruins. After our loss to them, the coverage would be huge on that game no matter what.

Hockey is much bigger than the CFL. Most of the media coverage would have been on the game sat night no matter what.
