for the GC?
teams make bids to the cfl for the right to host the grey cup. similar to the olympic bid... ok not like that at all. but if you have a bad grey cup showing, your not as liekly to get it as easily next time.
Similar but different. Similar because teams do bid for the right to host the game but different because no one has been caught bribing CFL officials for the right to hold the GC.
im glad someone actually took a joke on the forums for once.
Teams bid and guarantee the league a certain amount of money, then keep whatever they make over and above that, I think.
