Just curious on why the CFL decided to expand into the US, where it would be in direct competition with the NFL and NCAA. You guys had/have a great league with it's place, so why try to make a move that seemed doomed to failure?
I was in my mid teens when this happened, and actually watched Baltimore win the Cup (that's just wrong), and remember thinking to myself, 'this isn't going to work.'
I've always been curious on why the CFL made this move, and maybe someone can give some insight on it. And of all the cities they put franchises in, only Baltimore made any sense. The remaining cities weren't going to work. Who made these horrible decisions?
Now onto the current CFL. Will the league be expanding anytime soon? I think it would be cool to have a total of 12 teams with only 4 making the playoffs. Although, I know it will be hard to find 3 more cities capable of hosting a franchise. Also, correct me if I'm wrong but if you only have 9 teams in the league, why does 6 of them make the playoffs? Doesn't that reward a bad team or two?
Also, the NFL is talking expansion into international markets. So dont be surprised if one day you find a team in either Toronto or somewhere in Mexico. Although nothing is going to happen until they get a team back in L.A. Just some FYI for you, because in a decade or two Toronto could have a new downtown football stadium. Although, I'm still skeptical about all of their "talk."
Ok I'm gone, but I'll be keeping more up with the league after getting to watch some games on the tele. You can never get too much football.
