      This country is $815 billion in debt with an annual deficit of $342 billion whilst in the middle of record job losses and business failures and the BIG news is the how the name of a football team might offend the snowflakes ?

      @Smith Wesson Anything that appeases the mob is deemed big news nowadays.

    Right, Lord forbid that the CFL offends the 3 or 4 Inuit that watch football.
    2020…it’s like a nightmare that you can’t wake up from.

    CCP “news”?


  8. Leave the eskimos alone! The name is NOT meant as a racist slur nor has it ever been! I highly doubt that there’s any Canadian or American Eskimos out there who really are offended by it! I would hope they would take as a sign of respect more than as any type of racial slur!

  9. Yeah, because all these whiners are football fans.
    P.C. B.S.

  10. CFL is small time and nobody even cares
