I remember, many years ago, I suggested the CFL sponsor/team up with Big Brother (Canada), and I was mocked.  Look at those numbers and tell me I was wrong.
* Kevin Riley = The moral conscience AND movie reviewer for cfl.ca.  :)
* When in doubt, always ask (WWKD) What Would Kevin Do?
* Forgive me for always taking the High Road.  It's the ONLY Road I know.

    You are definitely right, it would surely be a big boost to the CFL... BUT... being associated with what I consider the lowest form of entertainment ::) just might create a stain that we can't wash.......These type of shows are the perfect example of the dumbing down of society. Great for the ratings though ! ;)

Their franchise best season is paying off with record TV ratings for the Raptors.  

Last Friday night's 'Drake Night' Raptors - Rockets battle of conference leaders on Sportsnet 1 and Sportsnet Ontario was the most watched regular season game in Raptors history. Winning the night in the 25 - 54 demographic that advertisers love.

The recent NCAA basketball March Madness was the most watched in TSN history with 6.2 million Canadians tuning into some part of the ten days of coverage.

The recent NCAA basketball March Madness was the most watched in TSN history with 6.2 million Canadians tuning into some part of the ten days of coverage.
NCAA madness is betting pool friendly as you can possibly get . You can go bracket or do a team selection with points . It makes the shorter college games so much more exciting . If you have  friends, coworkers , school or bar with it you can't stop talking about it as it creates it's own world for a few short weeks of intense drama  .

  The brackets make it so fun if you manage to pick a few right . Probably wouldn't bother a minute watching if there wasn't friendly betting scheme that make the upsets so rewarding and exciting .

The players get so ripped off from the money made it's ridiculous .


If you manage to do a perfect bracket you could end up a millionaire . What's better than that .

There were so many huge upsets in 2 or 3 of the regions early rounds I suspect most people's pool picks were down the drain fairly early.  I know mine was.

The numbers in many “non-traditional” markets in the U.S. are growing for hockey: Florida has gone from 5,606 players in 1998-99 to 13,276 in 2015-16; Texas went from just under 6,000 in 1998-99 to 13,385 in 2015-16.

Youth involvement in team sports has declined over the past decade. .... While fewer children have been making the decision to choose a team, a few sports have seen an increase in youth involvement. One of those sports is hockey. In fact, hockey has been seeing an upward trend since 2009.

According to USA Hockey’s most recent data, 555,175 players took part in the sport during the 2016-17 season, an increase of 2.32 percent from the previous season. Add in the number of non-participants (such as parents, volunteers, team managers, etc.) and participation was more than 1.15 million during the last season, an all-time USA Hockey record.

No I get it Pat..i didn't get to finish my thought and just seen I never deleted but somehow sent it.

But I wanted to reread what Earl stated so I didn't misinterpret what he was saying. 

But Can't remember where I was going with it
