I am sad
I am sadâ€¦ that I couldnâ€™t afford more then two season tickets.
I am sadâ€¦ that I couldnâ€™t get of my friends to come out to games.
I am sadâ€¦ that there might be 5 000 people in Ottawa waiting for the $99 when the folded the team.
I am sadâ€¦ that my phones calls to City Hall couldnâ€™t convince them to cut a new stadium deal for a new owner.
I am sadâ€¦ that we couldnâ€™t find real new owners like they did in BC, Ham and TO in the last 7 years.
I am sadâ€¦ that the CFL fans in Ottawa have a bad reputation out West.
I am sadâ€¦ for the restaurants and pubs who for 9 days in the Summer and Autumn had an extra 10 000 customers.
I am sadâ€¦ that the Alouettes fans who canâ€™t get tickets in their own stadium wonâ€™t have a place to watch them live.
I am sadâ€¦ I wonâ€™t see the look on their faces when they realize that Â¾ of the fans a Frank Clair can tell them off in French.
I am sadâ€¦ that I wonâ€™t get the view the fall colors and the setting sun from the bleachers this October.
I am sadâ€¦ that my baby son will never feel the excitement of touchdown drive in the Southside bleachers.
I am sadâ€¦ I will not get the chance to tell Northsiders or the Argos that they suck.
I am sadâ€¦ for the Renegade Nation.
I am sadâ€¦ for the staff and the players that wonâ€™t be picked up by other teams.
I am sadâ€¦ that Redandwhite and Statik will never know how this feels and will never understand our situation.
BUT I AM REALLY SADâ€¦ that I wonâ€™t be able to watch a CFL game for the next 10 years without thinking â€¦ what ifâ€¦
