In the NFL you have sold out 80,000 seat stadiums, superstar players, 32 teams and top notch TV coverage. You have none of that in the CFL, which unfortunately leads it to getting dismissed.
Then they don't know what they're missing. The athletes aren't as good but the rules make for a faster, more exciting game.
I'm now cheering for the Bears so those dolts can see that good things come out of this league.
