Yikes. The Globe and Mail reports this morning that while comissioner Tom Wright is in vacations, the CFL governors will hold a meeting to decide of his future. It is said a lot of owners are so unsatisfied with the Renegades situation that they’d kick him out right away.
Wright needs to get 7 favourable votes out of 9 to get his contract renewed. But the paper said only the Roughriders, BlueBombers and Stampeders are sure to show him confidence. The Eskimos, Ticats, Lions and Alouettes would vote against.
I totally disagree about firing Wright. The CFL has never been this healthy in the past decades. Wright made good moves (and, no, he’s not the one who designed the new jerseys!)
The sad thing is the four owners who want him out are the richest and are the ones who don’t give a crap whether there is a salary cap or not (which is what sent the Rens in turmoil).
