But its very indicative of the average sports fan in Canada. Personally, I think its a small victory that it got as much airtime as it did. The more he is talked about in non-soccer circles (as ignorant as those conversations are), the better it is for Canadian soccer as a whole.
It would just be nice if there was someone there that could bring up names like Hutchinson or De Guzman (the Canadian one, not the Dutch one) or Radzinski when they start talking about the best player ever. Or mention David and Millar as other up and comers.
