Found some recent pics of the seat installation at commonwealth stadium.
Seems they are just starting the installation of the upper level seats and will have them ready for the start of the season.

If anyone has pics of the new turf installation at Molson stadium, be sure to post those, too.
Oh, and the Blue bombers have posted new pics of IGF on their website, for those who are interested.

Here's Ottawa's construction progress:

If anyone needs a new turf, it is the Argos.
peat moss and crab grass are for garter snakes, not professional football players.

Still better than the Skydump toilet bowl. 8)

Wow....what a beautiful, classic stadium in Winnipeg...maybe the nicest in Canada. Will be a great addition to the city and a help in recruiting. Terrific.

Excellent pics dg. :thup: Commonwealth should put an apron of bricks near the bottom where the cement after the last row of stands meets the field, it wouldn't be very expernsive and would enhance the look.

And why the University of Toronto couldn't have done something with the city/Argonauts like Molson Percival is beyond me. Maybe the U of T has low aspirations and goals for the Varsity site, well obviously with what they have now. :roll:

...wow, that BB stadium is great! I still think BC Place is the jewel of the CFL stadia but that is a very close second

Ya...BC Place is beautiful . I go to many games there. its the closest to where I live now.
But I'm partial to true outdoor stadia.
Like I prefer traditional golf course design...tree lined, visible greens, over several newer designs.

Looks similar to, albeit a much smaller version, of Michigan Stadium. 8)

Does anyone know when single tickets go on sale?
I'm looking to get out to Winnipeg to take in a game this season. Need tickets before I book the hotel.
