As Sportsmen said, hang in there. I too am dying/desperate to see a team back in Ottawa, ASAP. But I do think no (or at least, minimal) news is good news. The CFL has always, always liked to keep things quiet. They usually HATE it when all of a sudden, people are blabbing to the media about what's going on, about what's supposed to be secret and behind closed doors. I strongly suspect this is a (if not THE) reason why D'Angelo was shut out.
So to me, the fact that times are quiet right now means things are going pretty well. To me, it means the CFL/ownership group is waiting for all the last details to get worked out, so they can say with 100% certainty that the team will be back for 2008. Maybe I'm just being optimistic, but I can also admit to you that I tend to be "the eternal pessimist"
Ottawa is DEFINITELY still in the CFL's plans; in fact, I bet you it's their priority. Although "maybe we can get another league interested" sounds like a bit of a threat, to me :?
While it's true that if something's out of sight it's out of mind, there really isn't much that can be done for the football fans of Ottawa right now. They can't exactly advertise, market and hype a team that doesn't exist. That would probably jade people more than anything.
And you die-hard fans probably ARE being taken for granted - but I'd be proud of that fact. You should be proud of the fact that since you guys are such strong fans of football (especially Ottawa football) and the CFL, that new owners can count on you to come to the games - and hence, new owners can know that there will be fans there to watch their team.
Don't worry yet, guys. I know you're antsy, and I would be too. But the original word (from the February meetings) was that something would be done by the end of March. There is still time until then. Even if mid-to-late April rolls around and nothing's happened, I wouldn't worry too much - shiat happens to slow down the process.
By the sounds of it, the biggest and most difficult issue, money, has been pretty much sorted out. Things are probably going pretty well.
Again - hang in there! These things take time, especially if you're trying to do due dilligence. Would you rather they rushed into it, almost blindly? Before answering, consider that that's pretty much what happened last time ... !
