I have gotten word from a high CFL official source that the CFL has gotten 2 offers to put a official bid for the Ottawa CFL franchise yesterday.
The CFL expansion committee was told yesterday that if either bid fails, the other bid will build a new stadium with local funding in the Toledo area. The group is a large numbered personel, and want to put a CFL franchise in Toledo. There is also word that the group has been negotiating with the city of Toledo to build a 33,000 seat stadium.
There was a writeup in the Toledo news on Friday, and once again yesterday.
It also mentions that Columbus, Hartford, and Portland-Maine have been speaking to the 2 groups if either group fails.
Apart of 1 group has Jesse Palmers father, Don Mardell, and NFL former owner Stanley Fritz.
It's not sure if both groups want to build a new stadium in near Scotiabank Centre, but I have been told that the Senators have been talking to the groups about building a 30,000 seat covered stadium adjacent to the arena.
More details to follow
