Certainly we would like to see more CFL exposure in the States. Well most of us anyway.
And we are seeing that occur now I think.
Montreal is the face of the CFL there now one suspects.
Trestman was huge news: Montreal
Chad Johnson was big news: Montreal
Michael Sam is huge news: Montreal
Calvillo's career got some play: Montreal
Now unfortunately Trestman was a failure there and probably will stop any further HC movement south and minimizes the CFL to some degree. Johnson was a failure. Sam is undecided.
But Montreal is America's team from the north. No other team gets a sniff.
Popp is shrewd in this I think. But not inappropriate. I do not think he sees this as his ticket to a GM job south. Trestman's demise sealed that probably. Success for Sam will be a major feather in his cap though. But Popp has put his team on the USA map. There are no American football fans unaware if the Als.
