Want a good way to help the teams????
BUY A TICKET GOTO THE GAMES!!!!!!
Not to make a jab at the threadstarter here or anything .. i want the CFL to prosper and do well and not lose teams but one thing makes me laugh ..
Some people on here say the NFL is all commercialized and a side show and whatnot .. and then you get ideas like selling naming rights for the CFL....
Last week at the Jags game i did not see one jersey with a sponsor sewed onto the front of them.. or on the helmets and wherever else they could fit one. It is all Team colors with pride (maybe a logo but thats the company that makes the jerseys and helmets).. then you look up in the stands and maybe not a sellout but full of people. Was a great game and enjoyed watching them beat the Bills (too bad about yesterday tho).
I think if you start selling too many rights for companies to slap their name on more of the CFL's stuff the league will become what people are accusing what the NFL is. Especially the Grey Cup NEVER EVER EVER do you want to tarnish the championship trophy with a commercial. Then you'll have someone try to buy the name of said trophy and before you know it teams will be playing in the Rona Bowl for for the Tim Hortons Cup Brought to you by Wal-Mart with the championsip presented by Home-Depot ....
Nah doesn't sound appealing to me .... If the fans goto the games and fill up the seats then there will be no worries .. if the fans do not go and you lose money well then you face the fact the team will fold -or move.
The CFL and the media need to get off their behinds and start promoting this league ... all across the country and not just in the cities with a team ..Need to make it popular just because its there doesn't mean people will go.
And dont tell me oh i go to all the games .. if your here you are a fan .. if your not going to the games you are probably not on this site those are the ones that need to become fans and help support the teams.
