There has been a lot of opinion thrown around about the state of the CFL.
Some of it is just opinion.
Lets look at some facts and some opinions.
- Most CFL teams are on solid ground. :thup:
B.C. , had a hugely successful Grey Cup , in , 2011. Season tickets and attendance should be up in , 2012.
Edmonton , made money as usual and is a model team for the CFL.
Calgary , is on even better ground with a bigger partnership with the FLAMES.
SASK. , is just killing and has the 2013 Grey Cup , in , 2013.
The CFL WEST is fine. The CFL EAST should improve.
Winnipeg , is in the black and they made millions. This should continue.
Both HAMILTON and TORONTO have vastly improved teams [on paper any way].
We know that the 2012 Grey Cup in T.O. , is almost sold out and that both teams are selling more season tickets.
The BILLS series was a complete disaster for Rogers and killed any chance of an NFL team in Canada. :rockin:
The ARGOS are working on a lease with Rogers.
The situation Montreal is a ? At least they have about 24,000+ real football fans. [Fans who pay to see games]
I think that they were unfairly targeted by some one writing some of their games were not sell outs because there were single tickets left. :thdn:
Well , EVERY arena marks sell outs by how many pairs of tickets are sold.
So the next time that you hear that a rock concert is SOLD OUT , you can get a great single seat usually.
Some bands release new seats just before the concerts after the stage is set up.
Even if the GREY CUP in Toronto , is sold out you should be able to get single seats at the box office.
- T.V. ratings...
Even though T.V. ratings were down last year I believe that they will GO WAY UP this year. :thup:
Still , the CFL is the most second watch sport in Canada behind hockey.
- We have no Commish problems and every team was under the cap. :cowboy:
Any other GOOD NEWS?
