WATCH: BC Lions Destroy Writer Who Called The CFL, "Boring".
Ok, this requires a bit of backstory. Ben Volin is a beat writer for the Boston Globe, primarily covering the New England Patriots. On Sunday, he took a bit of a run at Canadian football: https://3downnation.com/2019/04/09/nfl-reporter-cfl-has-no-downfield-passing-its-boring/
Obviously, CFL fans were pissed. Some spewed venom, some rolled their eyes, others just dismissed it as a dude looking for a reaction. The BC Lions? They decided to correct ol' Billy, who's clearly forgotten how boring Super Bowl was this year.
And yes, Billy noticed.
Little did I know that one sentence in my Sunday Notes would set off an international incident. Two straight days of this from fans, media, players and now teams. Sorry I hurt your feelings, CFL https://t.co/Gol42rbzcg— Ben Volin (@BenVolin) April 9, 2019
