I am a huge supporter of the CFL but I have zero faith in the league commissioner. I haven’t seen one thing that shows that he is trying to grow this league to be bigger and better. We can’t even award an expansion team to a city. Sure he wants to make sure the new franchise is successful but if we have to really worry about a city that for decades has been wanting a franchise then there should be no issue regarding fan support.
Then they announce this CFL 2.0. Really? How about lets get people in North America and more so in Canada to buy into the product before we worry about the rest of the world. Be creative in improving the game. This league has been around for a very long time and nothing is perfect from day one. There’s nothing wrong with making changes to a game that is stale and hasn’t evolved. Salary cap being 5 million dollars? how can anyone take the league seriously?
Why not make changes? Try something new, tweak the game.
This league is not new. People are tired of seeing the same teams week over week play each other again and again. I’m tired of hearing people ridicule numerous things about this league. End zone size, single point rule, three downs, even the ball looking bush league with the white stripes. Those white stripes only make a throw that isn’t a spiral look terrible. Get rid of them. Stop talking about history and it being CDN and don’t change it.
Even the NHL made changes to the great Canadian game. why can’t the CFL?
