If Johnson is promoted yet again, then the Owenrs are even dumber and more out of touch with the fanbase than I ever thought possible. Johnson needs to be kicked out of the League for good - under his watch, the game has become almost unbearable to watch.
Wright, Pelley, or jim Little are my choices. In either case we need someone with some backbone, and someone who also has a business background with a lot of contacts, some negotiation experience, and someone who the League Governors will respect and give autonomy to. First job of the new Commish IMO, should be getting rid of Johnson, and taking away a lot of the power and "say" that the current GM's and Coaches have.
20 second rolling clock, one time out for each team - which means only one challenge per team unless the challenge is successful, then allow the team to have 1 more, but that's it. Only challenger plays should be offensive and defensive pass interference.No challenge during the final three minutes of each half, on top of which the CFL Command Centre, can call in plays that are questionable, and hopefully fix them, but again only within the 3 mintues of each half Players caught trying to get their coaches to throw the flag should not only receive a penalty (15 yards minimum IMO), but a hefty fine. Also, all coaching challenges should be reviewed by the league after each game/week, and if it's determined that the Coach was "fishing" for a call, a nice $25,000 fine for the Coach should be in play IMO. Mandate that the refs goal should be 15 or less flags a game, on top of which do not throw flags on plays that have nothing that impacts the play/game, and actually use the headsets to speak with each other instead of still to this day continually meeting up to talk about plays - wtf are the headsets for if they're not going to use them ?
Speed up the game, and the flow of the game. Treat it like an entertainment business, and the new Commish has to bring in considerably more corporate revenue IMO, and when the time comes for the next media deal, getting another network involved is a must IMO, and push to have at least one game a week on OTA.
Just my opinion of course.
