There is little doubt that Saskatoon is the best CFL expansion site. A team could most assuredly draw consistent 20,000 crowds, maybe even 25,000. You can't say that about any other city, perhaps including Ottawa.
The problem with Saskatoon is the fear they would just cannibalize fans from the Riders...But the Riders currently earn nearly twice as much revenue than any other CFL team. Perhaps it makes sense to invest that largesse in another Sask team?
The solution could be having the Saskatoon team and Riders owned by the same "non-profit" Sask corporation, which would operate both clubs at an arms length basis. Each team would have it's own BOG, mgt, coaches and scouts and compete against one another equally. But the revenues from each team would be shared with the other Sask team. This way if Saskatoon drained off revenue from Regina, that money is still going into the same pot... and potentially much bigger pot with a northern Sask team. :thup:
