There was a blog message about the recent Laval game where they had 18,200 in the seats, which “supposedly” is “sort” of regular. I haven’t checked, but I seem to recall they get great numbers…Anything is better than the GeeGees vs. Laurier game a little while ago…
Any way…Oh God, I’m Going to Get Hell for This…
There are people driving themselves crazy, some here at this household included about bring a team back to Ottawa. :oops:
Then you look at Laval and the draw, and the Alouettes/McGill and their draw, and you have to ask yourself. Why not Quebec City? Not big stadiums (but expandable) in either city, and with a great fan base, and successful university programs (Laval, McGill, Concordia, UQUAM, Bishops, Sherbrooke?). I believe there are great city and highschool programs in Montreal and Quebec City too!
Out East I have to agree they are great football fans (look at Acadia), but is anyone going to build a 20,000 seat stadium on the hopes and prayers that they can fill the stadium? Maybe it will be like Regina, or the Packers in Wisconsin, and people will come from miles away to watch a game.
With some talent, might this be the Kick in the Ass the CFL needs?
Come on folks… its only a thought… be gentle!! I’m sure this has been said before!!
