It's just mere hours away from another CFL campaign wrapping up. With all that happened this season, it was another solid one and personaly speaking, I can't wiat for the big game in a couple hours (Go Bombers Go!!! I can't cheer for the Riders, sorry!) and more importantly, next year! With that being said, as CFL fans, what would should the greatest football league in the world do to make 2008 better than 2007?
Myself, here are some ideas I have....
Get rid of the Thursday night games, CFL games should be on Fridays and Saturdays with the odd Sunday game (with the exceptions of Labor Day and Thanksgiving). As a season ticket holder of the Eskimos, the two Thursday games (I know it's not too many but still)were a pain in the butt!
Start the season a little earlier. After the Walby's Warriors telecast yesterday Elliott Freedman of CBC talked to the Comish and brought this up to not overlap the NFL season too much. I think they meant starting it early where the Grey Cup would be in early October. Personally, that's WAY to early for the Grey Cup, but starting the season early June would have the Grey Cup in early November.
There was talk of expansion during the "State of the league address" and I totally agree with Mr. Cohon with that. Ottawa is the obvious choice but 10 WOULD be better than 9 and for now Quebec city would be an obvious choice because of the stadium they already have. All they have to do is just add on much like they're doing in Montreal.
Last of all....
Don't stress about the No Fun League (NFL)! The CFL is not going anywhere, Cohon IMO has had a great first season as commish and I believe him when he says "we'll be playing 3 down football for another hundered years". He's got a great vision for the CFL.
