Connections between Cohen and Glashow’s very special relativity and a Finsler
generalization of the special relativity is investigated. It is argued that if we stick to
Einstein’s two postulates then the very special relativity in its pure form is unnatural and
only in the context of the Lalan-Alway-Bogoslovsky generalization of special relativity,
based on a Finslerian metric, it makes a perfect sense.
