The biggest difference for me... why do most NFL quarterbacks seem so polished and cannon-like, while most quarterbacks in the CFL seem to struggle to even throw a good spiral?
I could seriously watch a Packers game just to watch Aaron Rodgers throw a football. It's amazing. So precise, with an amazingly quick release, and strong with every throw. Just ZING and it's exactly where he wants it to go. Awesome.
Then I watch guys like Drew Tate throw a wobbly thing seemingly straight up in the air and it just kinda hangs for awhile, and it's miraculously caught because there's so much more room for the D to cover on those fields.
I don't know. I just seem to remember CFL quarterbacks being much more impressive than they are today.
When I watch sports, I want to see the best of the best doing things 99% of the population couldn't dream of doing. Sure there are some athletes in the CFL but as an entertainment product it just isn't up to snuff for me. This includes camera angles, production value, story lines, marketable characters and leagues that have more than 6 teams where 2 of them are named roughriders. Also they should use the smaller ball. Makes for a better passing game which is more entertaining and should take the aforementioned "wobble" out of it.
