Idea to Increase Ticket Sales and Exposure

[b]Big Brother/CFL Sponsorship Deal :smiley:

The TV show (Big Brother) is huge in Canada. However, there has never been a Canadian version. Every other Country has their own version but not Canada.

The Aspers who own Global TV and the rights to the show (in Canada) are big CFL fans - the one brother wants to buy the Blue Bombers. The Aspers and Global TV should put on a Canadian Big Brother with the contestants coming from people who submit there application at CFL games.

You attend a CFL game you get to sign up and submit a DVD application. 12 participants... 2 from Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver. 1 from Hamilton, Ottawa(hopefully one day), Winnipeg, Sask, Calgary and Edmonton.

Young people would attend games in droves in the hope of being chosen - just what the CFL needs!

To be honest, originally, I thought of a Survivor/CFL partnership (since the CFL is the Ultimate Survivor!!!!) but I love Big Brother. If Survivor is chosen, the 12 Canadians could be matched up against 12 Americans on a fair away island - quite a sell on U.S. Canadian TV.

Anyone else think this is clever? Stupid? I am figuring on a 10%/90% split (smile). [/b]

im not going to bash your idea and say it wont work... it probably would bring in people... but they could think of a million gimmicks like this to bring in people... talent searches or sign up for shows etc etc etc...

i think it would just add to the craziness with this team

this team right now needs to focus on fixing their on-field product first, they dont need anymore un-necessary distractions... play better football and get some w's and the fans will come in.

interesting thought though il give you that, i never would of thought of it... but i dont think it would be in the best interest of the team.. despite some of the income it may earn

Yes, but it might help other CFL teams. Thanks for your input. Be well. :smiley:

I think the people chosen should have to prove they are CFL fans. It could be interesting to see hardcore fans from different teams holed up in a house together for a month. Talk about possible fireworks. :lol:

I got a better idea. Cuff Kelly to the uprights and sell fans punches $2 each, kicks $4 each, spits $1.25 each, and finally 5 paintball rounds $15.99. I'd probably even fly out or drive out to the peg just to partake in those events. Good thing I got paid this week :twisted:

Or we could do the same to you, Cheesecutter...

OOps forgot, some of you still worship the ground Kelly walks on, my bad. Take back what I said :lol:

No Cheesy...just don't dig on trolls diss'n my team's coach...go play in your litter box
