The three-downers in Toronto, all 12 of us, are not happy. Canada's biggest high school football championship series goes this week in the Rogers Centre (considering the news, I'll call it by its name today). The future of our game, the only game that we can still call our own--in total. So, it only makes sense that we should play these games on...
An American field.
Money talks and the NFL is footing a lot of the bill for this so what can you do? Except to lament the fact that we let stuff like this happen all the time. And, when you complain the non-three-downers tend to look at you like you are their developmentally challenged little brother that mom and dad forced them to hang out with. They tolerate you, sort of, but there is always a hint of condescension and resentment hanging in the air.
Which is how a high school championship game ends up getting played on a field that isn't regulation size for the sport that they are playing. And, that's a shame. Eh.
NOTE: The Fan590 will be airing an interview on this subject later this morning.
