The leaks and sneaks who actually run or own CFL franchises have exposed themselves again with shoddy public treatment of commissioner Tom Wright. If they want him out, fire him already. If they don't, extend his contract. The constant public whispering about Wright's shaky status doesn't nothing to enhance themselves or their league.

NBA VS. NHL

We know people don't watch NHL hockey in the United States. We have known that forever. The networks change but the ratings don't. What we don't talk much about are NBA ratings in Canada. If you do the math, the NHL does better in the U.S. percentage wise than the NBA does in Canada. For some reason, we tend to ignore that fact.

DEAD WRESTLERS

John Tenta, the Canadian sumo wrestler best known as Earthquake is dead at the age of 42. His name can be added to the long list of pro wrestlers gone before their 45th birthday:Rick Rude, Dino Bravo, Curt Hennig, Eddie Guerrero, Davey Boy Smith, Brian Pillman, Yokozuna, and Big Boss Man among them. And to think, Congress is worried about baseball players.
