So help me decide on which one should be my CFL team. The teams that have been eliminated are:
Toronto - too big of a market. also a dome team.
Montreal - too big of a market, plus they're in Quebec. a dome team?
Vancouver, BC- Love the Pacific NW, just not for football. Plus they play in a dome, i cant cheer for a team ithat plays in a dome.
Hamilton - Too small, plus too close to Toronto.
Ottawa - Too poltical.
Saskatchewan - Love the name, but Regina is too small, and in the middle of nowhere.
Basically this is what it comes down to. I live in Nashville, which is a small market by American standards. The city itself has about 600k ppl, while the metro area is about 1.3 million ppl. Plus, N'ville is proud of it's country heritage, and although it's a relatively large place, it still has that small town feel. Although N'ville also has a pro hockey team, and some local colleges, the city is 100% crazy about their pro football team. So which of the above 3 teams best fits that bill? So far, from the limited knowledge I have of those 3 cities, it seems like Winnepeg has a lot in common with NSH.; but then again, it also seems calgary and edmonton also have a lot in common witht the 'ville.
