CFL IN CYBERSPACE: The CFL is taking bold technological steps this season, aggressively courting a younger demographic spoon-fed on the Internet.
The league is planning to show some of its games on the Internet, following other pro sports which have webcasts.
The league has had preliminary discussions with the CBC, TSN and RDS, said Brent Scrimshaw, the league's chief marketing officer.
NOT GIVING UP ON 'GADES: The Ottawa Renegades are a team in turmoil but presidents of the other clubs aren't bailing on the franchise just yet.
At a meeting of the league's presidents' council yesterday support was thrown firmly behind the club, CFL commissioner Tom Wright said.
"I've been in contact with ownership and we're going to support efforts to make sure it (the franchise) works,'' Wright said.
In a few short months the Renegades have seen a new ownership structure â€? Bernie Gliberman is the majority owner â€? and a new head coach.
REPLAY TALKS: The finer points of the CFL's new instant replay system will be discussed again this morning. The CFL's rules committee, which met yesterday in Toronto, failed to reach a consensus on the new system.
A rule allowing coaches to call time-outs was passed by the committee and will be forwarded to the CFL's board of governors for approval.
