Tiresome of talking stadium, MLSE, and BMO.
Hamilton is in the same situation as Toronto to start the season.
Toronto weeks 1-5 3 straight weeks in the West a bye Week and week 5 in BC. Maybe, maybe not a bad thing. Here is where Braley's money could help.
Games 1,2,3 Edmonton, Regina, and Calgary. Some team bonding as they could stay out west for the duration. Nice practice facilities in Saskatoon could be available to rent and keep them close but out of any of the main CFL cities. U of Alberta and Regina also have first class practice facilities.
Weeks 6-12: 3 home games and two in Hamilton gives them the ability to game prep for 5 home games with hamilton being a short drive. Advantage of having their own practice facility now
Week 13 bye week. A very good part of the season to have a bye. Right in mid September. NFL Training camp final cut downs will be just getting done and NFL Practice Rosters begin to get set by this time.
Aside from any new Internationals there will likely be several former CFLers international and National will become available as free agents. Some National draft picks as well could be aquired via trade.
Often overlooked Arena Football season also ends the end of August. Not publicized too often but plenty of CFL starters and All Stars have come from AFL over the last few seasons.
The Argo's acquired both Starting LTs Tony Washington and Sir Vincent via AFL.
Weeks 14-20: The final 7 games include 5 home games with weeks including the final 4 weeks 17-20 all at home and all on Friday or Saturday. There will be no more trips west with the two road games being in Ottawa and Montreal.
