I don't know many have complained about two and outs all my life . When the CFL game is played well it's great but it seems the execution to get to that level is not there as often .
Yes this year is bad but there has been many occasions that the game appears fragmented to the outsider of CFL and to those who watch it casually or is a die hard .
Always been a CFL first guy but the NFL has evolved from the run oriented to a entertaining balanced game .
I have never felt we should change the dimensions and other facets but really would like to see the game attempt to see what the game would look like with the extra down the NFL has to play with on offence .
The nuance of strategy of field position is a nice quirk but it doesn't move the needle for excitement . Cerebal part of the game is great but flow of the game is vital for today's attention span . Football has so many breaks in action already and it may be best to at least experiment with certain elements of the game like adding a down and seeing if it moves the needle of increased interest .
I no longer believe we should be so stubborn not to at least attempt to experiment with something that may prove to save the league our traditions / past with an addition .
If it's too overwhelming for the defence there maybe tweaks that can be inserted for instance the goal posts moved back . The NFL didn't move theirs back until 1974 .
They seem to evolve their game ; it's time we keep our game with the greater size dimensions of field etc .. but attempt to create a better coordinated offensive game for fan interest .
This should be attempted in exhibition form a number of times especially in preseason as it does not hurt any of the evaluations of players .
