Why do you say it's not going to happen in Moncton?
Both the CFL Commissioner and the Mayor of Moncton are very positive on the idea, as are several New Brunswick legislators. From the last article I read, there are active talks taking place. They're building a stadium right now that can reach 20k with temporary seating, and has plenty of room for permanent expansion. The only thing Moncton's lacking is a private investor... which Quebec City also lacks, along with a suitable stadium in the works and the backing of politicians. They just got $400M for their birthday party and no one thought "hmm... maybe a stadium?" It just shows where the CFL ranks in policymakers' priorities.
As to the question I like "Vignt-Deux" or "Voltigeurs". I don't think "Blue Devils" would fly... it's identical to the iconic Duke Blue Devils and is very close to "Blue Bombers". How does "Blue Devils" translate into french?
He didnt say it was not going to happen in Moncton, he said it is more likely to happen in Quebec. As for the name Blue Devils being to close to Blue Bombers, MLB has the Red Socks and the White socks and its not a problem.
Yes, and the league would NEVER allow two names to be so similar. Roughriders vs. Rough Riders anyone?
I'd love to see the CFL expanded to 10, or even 12 teams, as long as they are all in Canada. But this conversation has been going on for a very, very long time (I still remember the "Atlantic Schooners" that were going to be in Halifax in the late 70s...blue and silver, cool logo, and all), so I will believe the expansion rumours when the new team actually plays their first game at Taylor Field.
