I will agree it’s healthy for the league, but only 20,000 a game for the lions isn’t healthy, 35,000 is what that franchise should be aiming for, how ever the lions will never reach that average probobly with over priced tickets, the lower bowl at bc place holds 27,000 But it ain’t the NFL so people won’t pay big ducks for end zone seats, they need to redo they seating layout
Have both bowls open how ever the top bowl have the end zone seating for advertizing but it’ll make twice the number of great seats, the lions will never have good attentince unless they open up the upper bowl and change there prices period.
Better chance of a ring? The West does seem to always have the better teams. Could also be that 4-5 West teams appear well run, while in the East, 2. That is the reason I could explain it. If offered the same money, I’d rather go to the West than Toronto/Montreal
I don’t what the problem is with Toronto, but it’s rarely been able to develop its own QBs. I might be wrong, but as far as I can remember the team’s successes in the last 25 years or so have all been with a QB they got from another team. Now that Ray is at the end of his career, the Argos are going to be hard pressed to be successful again if they can’t get a bona fide healthy starter from somewhere. It doesn’t look as if it will be this year.
In the past 25 years, only three teams (Calgary with Garcia, Dickenson and Mitchell, Edmonton with Ray, and B.C. with Lulay) have won the Grey Cup with a QB they recruited and developed themselves. That’s five QBs scattered among nine teams over 25 years. This is not an Argo issue, it’s a league issue.
