HAMILTON — On the heels of the announcement from Commissioner Randy Ambrosie regarding League’s 2021 Return-to-Play plans, Bob Young, Caretaker of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, issued the following statement on Wednesday:
It doesn't matter. If the NFL can play in December, so can the CFL. Everybody celebrates that Cheeseheads and Bills Mafia fanbase are super fans when they come out for cold games, not a word about CFL fans that do the same thing.
As a long time Ti-cat fan I am happy to hear this news. I remember Grey Cup games being played in December when I was a kid (some 70 years ago or more) it was fun then as it will be now - the key point here is to get back to playing. I am concerned about the future of the CFL due to COVID.
PS - As a side note - we don't need the XFL - don't go there!
