Some folk don't understand that the USA and it's citizens do not care whatsoever about Canada and anything in Canada. It doesn't even register on their radar.

Sorry man but the more I think about this, the worse of an idea it seems.


Agree.

Plus, the reason the Stallions were popular was because the fans had nothing else.
There would be zero fan fare for a retro game.
Not to mention a waste of CFL effort .

I think it's a terrific idea. It won't happen - no place to play; but it's clever.

Nice to see someone thinking outside the box.

I guess it's so sharp that we need to see it twice...

Redundant much?

He is not being Snarky.

He has been on a crusade to get people to stop quote replies that includes the photos.

His hope is that the same photo does not show up 5 or 6 times in a thread.

Not a bad idea.
It's better than my idea to play a game in England or Hawaii.

I don't think its my worst idea.
Remember the Als were Baltimore and Baltimore had the highest attendance for 2 years in the CFL. Baltimore was the only non Canadian team to win the GC and a retro game would be accepted for 1 game.

Plus I wouldn't sell the CFL short, I thought for the 1 retro game they could have 25 to 30 thousand with some still remembering the team.


No they do not care anymore now that they have their NFL team back. The team has been gone for a generation now. Few would really care at this point. A regular season game there would only draw 5 - 10,000 if they are lucky. Bad idea.

If there is any thread that should be Mod Locked , it is this one.

It is pointless and it is not going to happen.

Along with those who need to bring up " CFL should expand to the US " blather.
