No wonder no one watches

Any league
People do tend to watch winners

But that strong a sports program screams they are prime for expansion and only strengthens my belief they should be 10th team

Quebec City would be the more logical choice for a CFL franchise for several reasons but more specifically the fact that PEPS/Telus stadium can house approximately 20,000 with temps with nearly 13,000 of those as permanent seats.
The bells and whistles may be lacking but those could be added at a later date if so desired.

Alas, absent Jacques Tanguay’s iron fist as Director/Founder of Rouge et Or, Quebec City may have already had a franchise as there were a couple of suitors willing to pony funds in order to upgrade Telus Stadium to CFL specs a decade or so ago.

Imagine a double header on the slate with QC-blanks vs Alouettes with the undercard Rouge et Or vs Montreal Carabins.

Dare to dream….
