I give my head a shake every time this US expansion BS comes up.
I admit my post was over the top ( not the first time ), I just get frustrated over this.
I love the CFL and do not want it ruined.
Second verse , same as the first.
US owners wanted :
Changed to NAFL
Real football with 4 downs - Pepper Rodgers
Season moved up so the Grey Cup is played in December - Jim Speros
With the exception of Baltimore, the other 6 cities had empty stadiums.
Americans only care about NFL and NCAA.
One of the reasons the United League failed.
I know this hurts our fragile Canadian egos, but in the US, the CFL is considered a semi- pro minor league
On this side of the border, people just want a 10 th team to even the schedules.
That is the wrong reason for expansion.
9 teams is fine. The CFL has had 9 teams without problems since 1961 interlock.
Now people have a problem with it and want to change it.
Bigger is not better. ( no jokes please ).
Windsor ? Ontario is saturated
Halifax ? Poor economy, low population, lack of revenue from to small of any stadium....
Quebec ? outside of Montreal, there is no interest in QC
