CFL Commissioner Jeffrey Orridge to step down

CFL Commissioner Jeffrey Orridge to step down

by bwf029 » Wed Apr 12, 2017 10:17 am

TSN's Dave Naylor tweeted today:

@TSNDaveNaylor Sources say mutual agreement between Jeffery Orridge and CFL to part ways, understanding through two years it has not been a good fit. #CFL
(10:46 AM - 12 Apr 2017)

@TSNDaveNaylor Am led to believe today's CFL announcement will not mean Orridge's immediate departure. Expected to stay in role through the spring. #CFL
(10:49 AM - 12 Apr 2017)

Personal comment: It's about time...

Thank you...Yes...this guy was a hiring mistake right away. Please take that stupid logo with you too. Glad the BofG listened to the fans.

Yeah in a Galaxy far, far away would Scott Mitchell be made CFL boss. The 70's called and they want their suit back.

In the CFL the Commish is a phoney title anyway. He's really a glorified Office Manager.
