So a few points. Turn around can only go two ways. Wasn't going to reply as most have deaf ears. However different points are good. Been watching CFL for a few years. First Game 1956.
Why to I love CFL and its quality play!!!!!!!!!!
Quote: "I mean how do you maintain and increase the younger audience numbers?"
What attracted me to CFL. Meeting players in the street, at practice invites, malls everywhere. Eskies ran youth football camps. Worked for the CFL BUT Where given full time jobs which paid very well. Hate to say given but community wanted them as they new they would never leave a good situation. So lets TRY to keep players from changing teams every second year.
Who did Jackie Parker, Ron Lancaster, Joe Kapp, Russ Jackson, Antony Callvio, Bernie the rife,
Condrege Holloway, Dieter Brock, Bill Simon's, play for????????
They sign and played for many years became a part of community.
Remember Ed Hervey and the collapse of Eskies this year. OR NOT.
Community wanted access to players. You get paid $60,000 from Eskies, Job $70,000
Love by community!!! Not Bad. Or jump players around. RUN for the CASH
Second choice is USA development league. 6 Canadian teams 12 American.
New Rules, new system, Great step from college to NFL. Big cities only, reasonable tickets and beer. FAST PLAY WITH BIG INCENTIVES.
Sponsor by NFL. Deep Deep pockets. If I owned a CFL team, I'm in.
