They Schedules games on Sunday vs the NFL
For Fans who like both leagues they have make a Judgement Call .
The CFL needs Stop Putting games on Sunday when NFL kicks off in the Fall
It really bugs me that Have miss CFL games cause CFL dose this every year please STOP
Sunday games are popular on TV and for fans going to the games. I am a fan of football; CFL, NFL, NCAA, CIS. However, I am CFL first. My choice. Get a PVR if you are worried about missing a game on TV, that way you can watch both your number 1 and number 2 team’s game.
I think you're on the wrong forum, junior. Nobody cares if you want to watch the NFL or not.
FYI, CFL games on Sunday generate double or triple the ratings than for a NFL game. The Als have to play home games on Sunday as McGill U. has exclusive rights to Molson stadium on Fridays and Saturdays after Labour Day.
If televised in the US I watch CFL on the TV and an NFL game on my computer or on a second TV. Most sports bars in my area show both the CFL and NFL at the same time, especially as time nears for Grey Cup and Superbowl.
Good friends, chicken wings/shrimp/cold beer and CFL and NFL all at the same time what more could you ask for!
Just like tonight, I'll watch CFL on ESPN3 (computer) and NFL preseason on the TV at the same time.
if cfl did not televise on sunday, then people wanting to watch football on sunday would gravitate to the NFL when otherwise they would not. Some of those people might find they like it too much. Not good for CFL. Keep the sunday games.
So the issue seems to be, that you would rather watch an NFL game on TV, then go watch the Ti-Cats live with the stadium atmosphere. Sounds to me like the cfl is a hobby for you. I don't think you would be the target market for the CFL and TSN, when they are scheduling their games.
Besides fully half of the ten Sundays where regular season of CFL and NFL overlap this year (September 7 - November 9th) five of those ten Sundays there are not any CFL games - so lots of chance to watch all the NFL games those Sundays without missing any CFL games.
With Bell Media (CTV/TSN) having NFL rights for the next 12 years you can pretty much count on at least some Sundays being CFL free to be able to fit their NFL coverage in along with other things TSN has rights for - things like NASCAR etc. But because CFL games still draw well on Sundays for them it only makes sense they still keep that day as an option for their CFL coverage.
