CFL critics have pointed to a number of negatives this season.
Crowds in Toronto are small, attendance in Montreal is down.
According to many – most who don’t understand football – the officiating is terrible. That conclusion is based on the fact a grocery shopper was denied $1 million.
For a change, let’s deal with football and facts: 11 of the 16 games played this season so far have been decided by nine points or less. Last year at this time, only seven games were decided by nine or less.
Six games have been decided by a field goal or less. Last year, five were decided by three or less – and that was 16 games into the season.
Travis Lulay set a CFL record by coming off the bench to throw for 436 yards on the weekend. Earlier this year. Ricky Ray had a career high 506 yards in passing.
Those who spend their time looking to be critical are missing some good football.
