Let me think about that one...........ahhhhhhhhh NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!


Its not a political thing, he is very well connected, well respected, can manage through good times, or a financial crisis.

Plus it would be a publicity boon for the league.


It absolutely is a political thing, and there would be no "boon", just most of the country upset with the CFL. Dumb.

Terrible choice, he was so divisive (because he was one of the worst Prime Ministers in history) that more than half of the people hate him already. Zero chance.


He was out of touch the last couple years of his tenure, but I wouldn't call him the worst. He did well his first term. Its the moron in Trudeau that we have that is the worst PM ever.
The Green and Gold is bold.

Someone made a great point - Stephen Harper -, we used to see him at every REDBLACKS home game, he loves the CFL and wrote a book on hockey. If he's not too busy he would make a good choice.............. :thup:
He would have a lot of influence and connections that's for sure.

Actually, I wouldn't mind Harper as a commissioner. It would never happen as the pay cut is not worth it.

Good business connections and especially in his last term, very much a control freak with those he's working with. I think we would be handle that boardroom and throw his influence around.

Most likely, whoever will be chosen will be qualified but not much of a household name.

Harper will never be the guy but it is interesting to think about it.
I think Harper would overshadow and dominate things way too much. He'd be the story.
Plus you'd have to have security follow him along.
And how the hell would you ever fire him?

One of the funniest things I ever saw was when a fan at the REDBLACKS game walked right past Harper and CFL Commissioner Mark Cohen totally ignoring them both but stopped to shake hands with CFL legend Russ Jackson who was sitting next to them . :) Priceless :cowboy:
