The Eskimos simply aren't that important to this generation.
That's what happens when you put a crap product on in a time when there is access to numerous different sports. In today's day and age putting a poor product up for even 1 year could lead to people finding something better to watch.

And no it's not the same for hockey. People grew up playing hockey, football not so much.
