In the only important sports story of yesterday — what else was there? Really, there couldn’t possibly be a single other story this important, not one — quarterback Tim Tebow was released from the New York Jets. No surprise. The wildly popular player wasn’t wildly successful in the NFL.
From some corners of the internet, the situation’s conjured up the collective shrug of “I don’t know … CFL?”
Our own football league’s website has a poll up right now, asking “Would Tim Tebow excel in the CFL?” As I write this, over 3,500 people have voted and the split is 52 per cent, 48 per cent, with the majority saying “Yes”. The post also posts tweets quoting Montreal Alouettes GM Jim Popp showing some interest.
If it does happen, get ready for the most American interest there’s ever been in Canadian football.
(As long as we’re talking football and dropping Deadspin links all over the place, the prospective designs for a new Atlanta stadium are worth seeing. The sarlacc’s pit is rightfully coming up in the comments.)
