Re: 2018 CFL Season2 weeks ago
This is what I still like about Canada. Y'all can be as nasty, stupid, and small-minded as anybody else, but at the Grey Cup, there was respect. And on this board, I don't think anybody wanted the Stamps to win. Some of us like the RBs, some just hate the Stamps. But when it was done, y'all gave them due respect. Didn't blame the officials, or the field, or Edmonton, or the coaches, or the weather, or whatever. Acknowledged that the Stamps may not be the better team, but they were the better team yesterday.
I like to think we used to be the same way down hereabouts. Maybe we were. But even if we were, there's less of it now. More whining, more bitching, more excuse-making, less respect for a job well done, less civility. Probably our best moment in the last few years was after the Parliament attempted shootings, and I think we were as decent as we were because, well, it was Canada. Can't let them see us being jerks.
So, we may have all the nukes, but y'all have something we've lost (or maybe never had).
So, respect to y'all.
