CFL listens to Windsor
DETROIT -- CFL commissioner Tom Wright says he will meet with Windsor Mayor Eddie Francis regarding a potential expansion team for the city.
"I've not spoken to Mayor Francis yet but I hope to have a chance while I'm here," said Wright, in Detroit for Super Bowl festivities. "I'm interested in speaking to any civic leader on how we can grow the game.
"If there is an opportunity for us to grow the CFL in this market, I'd be more than happy to chat with him about it.
"I've heard his interest in expansion but it's pretty premature."
Francis has said Windsor's role as a so-called Super Bowl co-host more than proves its worthiness for consideration as the CFL's 10th franchise.
