You see, Bru, they are our superiors. They know our culture (or lack of it, as they see it), they know our language (and another one besides), which automatically makes them better. They govern our country, because it is a bilingual country, and they speak both languages, so that makes them better. Bow down before your betters, you unilingual BruSan.

Don't you know, BruSan, that Quebec is the only jurisdiction qualified to nominate candidates to the Prime Ministership? Pierre Trudeau, Brian Mulroney, Jean Chretien, Paul Martin--all Quebecers.

Stephen Harper? He was a mistake. Albertans are not allowed to be PM. After all, they are not Quebecois, and cannot speak French. He hasn't been qualified, according to the Laurentian Elites. But he was popularly voted in by the people of Canada.

Gee, Quebec--if Albertans can become PM, maybe you're not as important as you think you are. Superiors indeed. Pffft!
this post makes absolutely no sense, and none of its hold any true.
I don't even know why you wrote it, just because you are mad? Seems a bit childish.

I'm pretty sure the NFLs revenue doesn't come close to the English Premier League or any major soccer league for that matter. I get your point though

But also far more exciting to watch.

TV Ratings beg to differ

In fact, after Hockey, American Football is the most popular sport in Canada.

I think you have that flipped around. No one comes close to NFL revenue.

The Premiere League made just under 3B pounds the last numbers I can find, for a year's revenue. NFL alone made $7.2B, and that doesn't include individual team revenue for local deals. That's just league money, split 32 ways. The biggest factor is TV money.

FIFA received just over $600M for the 2014 World Cup TV rights globally. The NFL gets over $1B a year just from ESPN to do Monday Night Football and have first grab of highlights.

I suppose by American football you mean gridiron football, as the most popular televised sport in Canada after the NHL is the CFL, not the NFL.

I stand corrected

Considering the EPL is FAR more popular than the NFL and how they probably sell much more merch, I figured they would make more revenue

Yeah it was a bit of hyperbole there, but I still think it's just nasty. I'm not even a hockey fan. I don't really like organized sports of any kind.
