If this is Canton trying to make this feel like a big event, they wiffed.- It would look funny if Texas had national power Ohio State.
- Debatable we have two NFL teams. Some would say "three." Some would say "none."
- The NFL HOF for some reason chose not to locate in either of those three cities.
- Neither Columbus, Cinci nor Cleveland appear to be all that important to the history of the sport.
You would move Gettysburg to Lancaster because it would be more centralized? To Pittsburgh or Philly because they're bigger towns?
We play the community championship at a community stadium which has a history pertinent to the game. That's better exposure for the game and for the state. Columbus shows no interest in making the event, an event. It's an after thought to them.
Makes sense to me we hold the championships in Canton-Massillon, regardless I have to drive a bit further.
For Fans - Parking sucks and tailgating is not ALLOWED (Ridiculous)
For Players - Not even close to playing at the shoe
Hall of Fame doesn't bother to extend hours
I get that OSU wont host, that sucks, and it is not Canton's fault. But I can't act like Canton is making Fans or players feel like it is an event. As a fan they make me feel more like we are inconveniencing them. There is no place provided to meet with the players after the game. So you
stand outside the locker rooms by the busses to congratulate the boys. OSU had a designated area inside to meet with the players after the game.
