Damien Cox a Bit Sensitive Today?

Canada vs California: a Stanley Cup war of media words.  First, here’s Helene Elliott’s comments in the LA Times:

The Canadian media have cast the Senators in the role of Canada’s Team, even though the Ducks have more sons of the True North on their roster than do the Senators. And the label may not even be accurate.
Maple Leafs fans rarely care about anything that happens outside of Toronto, otherwise known as the Center of the Hockey Universe, so their support of the Senators is probably minimal, if it exists at all.”

To which Cox responds,

This stuff is so utterly idiotic it’s hard to even comment on it, particularly in a U.S. state with a larger population than all of Canada. More to the point, readers of the newspaper must be utterly confused by this silliness, which seems to roughly equate newspapers and television in Canada with state-controlled media from the old Soviet Union, thinking en masse and according to some approved national policy.
