But thanks For the slight anyway, I'm sure you feel Better about it now
What does YOU admitting to being wrong have to do with me?
What do I have to admit?

The hockey writers.com for example doesn't even rank it in their top ten leagues...
By default the CFL is the second best league unless you count arena ball , which in sure you will jump on but whatever...
Maybe you meant your comparison as a matter of fact but it sure doesn't cone across as that - sorry
Stop assuming things that aren't there, and who gives a shit about the CFL being the 2nd best league, when in terms of quality, IMO, it's more than just a step down?
I don't care if you take it as an insult, it was given with a bit of ribbing, but drawing these grand conclusions and breathless arguments is just slightly ridiculous.

It's just fact that the Grey Cup breaks TV ratings records almost annually
I didn't create the dichotomy it exists whether you like it or not.
Oh my god, you're having real trouble grasping what I'm saying.
I said you're creating a false dichotomy by assuming my comment is necessarily pitted against the CFL and Canada as a whole, and you went on to stupidly assume that it's due to some sort insecure complex.
That's drawing a conclusion without the facts, which in other words is complete and utter bullshit, and it shows why Tater told you to stop talking out of your ass.
ukcanuck wrote:that's kind of my point. The CfL is a legitimate sport unto itself and doesn't deserve to be compared the NFL. The Americans have their version, Canada has it's own. They are related but comparing them is like comparing countries ....
Wait you don't like it when I do that...
Again, with your laughably empty assumptions...
Just because a league is based in the US or Canada doesn't mean preferring one over another has anything whatsoever to do with the country itself.
These are private, corporate entities that offer football in two widely different ways, and the preference for one over the other has sweet fuck all to do with the country the league is in.

(the whole country meaning the vast majority of Canadians who prefer the Home Grown version, seriously you didn't get that?)
Oh, I got it just fine, but for you to assume my criticism has anything to do with the country itself is fucking stupid, the same way you assumed I was anti Canadian for saying Jim Rome and Dan Patrick are far more talented than any Canadian broadcasters that operate in this here great nation.

First of all, get thicker skin and stop asking people to be nicer to you.
Secondly, when you make stupid assumptions, expect to get them thrown back in your face.
