Interesting message from Sully (of the league) on a thread I started in the main CFL board. My post was about a potential conflict between the CFL opener Thursday night and a Game 6 of the NBA Finals if the Raptors don’t win tonight and Monday.
Game 6 is scheduled for Thursday night on TSN. If that game takes place any hope of a decent kickoff to the season with good ratings and some media attention to help generate some excitement for the league would be lost in a Game 6 Raptors tsunami.
Sully’s post on the main board in response to that.
The league is aware and will take action if needed. http://forums.cfl.ca/Smileys/default/smiley.gifDoes that mean a potential earlier start than 7:30PM?
I know tonight that Toronto FC moved up there game at BMO Field from 8:00PM to 7:00PM so that their game is over just as the Raptors game starts. (Then they are inviting fans to watch the Raptors game on the scoreboard there.)
