I have emailed the CFL two years in a row now to ask them to explain to me why their scheduling is so biased. I have yet to receive an answer, so I'll ask those of you on this forum.
This year the Montreal Alouettes play their first weekend game (pre-season and regular season, home or away) on Oct.2.
By this time, Saskatchewan will have played 9 weekend games,
Edmonton 8 weekend games,
Is it too much to ask for just 2 or 3 weekend games before the season starts to wind down? It's hard for Montreal fans who have to get up early every day to go to work to be subjected to consistent late weekday games. Yes, I know one can PVR the games, but c'mon, you know it's not the same.
Last year, Montreal had more Thursday night games than anyone. Here we go again this year.
I would really like an answer. I may not like it, but at least it will be an answer.
