I just wanted to know if anyone else out in CFL land, can answer this question, or has taken a look at thinking outside the box when it comes to expansion, other than the USA?
I know the drive to find ownership in Ottawa is a big push, but why ruin league credibility, by trying to go back into a market that has failed several times, when there are other markets just salivating for a professional team, such as Halifax (Maritime market). You don't see the NFL going back into LA anytime soon. I know there are some questions that would need to be answered such as travel costs, a proper stadium, ownership, but why not put the effort into a market that would be a strong market to help the credibility of the CFL. And to really think outside the box, why not look at the BC, Okanagan Valley that is growing rapidly. Within the Valley is close to 1 million people within a 1.5 hour drive of Kelowna, the largest city. From Kamloops to Osyoos. You can't tell me they would welcome a CFL professional team. again various questions would have to be asked, and it is outside the norm, but travel is definitely not a problem, nor is potential ownership, and the only other competitor would be the Junior hockey team.
Just some thoughts.
