Discussion in 'CFL League Talk' started by Stamps Rule, Jun 25, 2012.
Starting at 6 and running to 8pm.
CFL season preview on TSN is on tonight.
Nobody ever does it but it's fun to tape these shows and watch them when the season's over.
I consider this the unofficial start to the season, so GAME ON.
I missed it. Anything interesting to report?
The show marked the season debut of Bubba "Doug" Brown as a panel member. Brown was jettisoned to Toronto to sit at a mini-panel desk with his former teammate Milt 'No Ring' Stegall and they were probably the most entertaining part of the program. Stegall was the dominant comic as he bombarded Brown with nicknames and trash talk, yapping about how Brown was the Senior Bagman for Swaggerville. Milt woulda been a great member of Swaggerville. Brown was very good in his debut, but as one would expect he was a bit restrained - deciding not to come on strong until he gets more face time. Smart!
Regardless of being a bomber, I suspect Brown will soon become a broadcast icon on TSN. My recommendation is that Doug should be trained as a play-by-play guy, he's got the chops, the look and the smarts. I told him a few years back he should take in a summer play by play college down south and get some technique. Don't know if he did. But to replace Rod Black shouldn't take more than a half hour seminar.??
So yer sayin' the whole 2 hour CFL preview was about Doug Brown, then, Bronks?
That musta bin interestin'!
Glad I missed it then
Sorry, but I'm not one to watch previews or predictions or pre-game banter. Just make it friday already.
