For those who think the CFL did NOT get an increase, please explain this...
Western teams care very little for the Argos or the teams out East - nothing has happened in the last 20 years to make me think otherwise. So, why would the Western Teams agree to a TSN extension if there wasn't something in it for them? Especially, given the fact that all 4 Western teams are flush with cash. That, more than anything else, makes me think there was an increase - even if it was a small one. It makes sense.
If WE know TSN needs the CFL, and BCE buying the Argos proves this, they certainly know. Without an increase, my guess, Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton and Saskatchewan would all be happy to wait until 2018 to see what the new market prices bring in.
Anyway, we'll know in the coming months as the details leak out.
