For those of us old enough to remember, the Grey Cup used to be played on Saturday and I for one think that it still should be. I will list my reasons and I would invite others to list some I miss or conversely list why Sunday is a better choice. The only reason I can see for playing the game on Sunday is that it squeases one more night of hotels so the host city gets one more day of revenue.
Reasons for moving the game back to Saturday.
-Allow for Sunday travel day home, there by eliminating the need to take the Monday off work, holidays are at a premium for me, I am sure it is the same for most people.
-A day buffer to nurse hangovers after Grey Cup parties.
-Renew the tradition of Grey Cup parties without having to clean-up or recover on a work day.
-Renew the reputation of the Grey Cup being the "Grand National Drunk"
-Not competing with NFL.
-Sunday is a church day
-Cities with CFL and pro hockey teams can do a double header.
-Fans in the Atlantic region can actually watch the game without going to work the next day with little or no sleep.
-Kids can watch the game without having to stay up late on a school night.
