NFL reporter doubles down on CFL hate, enters troll territory

Boston Globe NFL reporter has doubled down on his CFL hot take.

Based on attending one CFL game Volin wrote: There’s no downfield passing. It’s boring.

After CFL backers let Volin have it on social media, he issued a non-apology apology. And Volin has decided to try and back up his narrow view of the CFL style of football from watching one single three-down game he attended live.

At least Volin admitted the New England Patriots, the team he primarily covers, won a super boring Super Bowl in February.

Volin clearly views the NFL differently than the CFL: a one game sample size is more than enough to make a blanket assessment of a league in Canada, but not the United States. Putz qualities for sure.


The game Volin references was between the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the Edmonton Eskimos at Tim Hortons field – the game where Ticat quarterback Zach Collaros tore his ACL. And as Twitter user @ChrisIve points out, Volin seemed to like it just fine at the time.

Again. Putz.
