Keys to success would be revenue sharing. It’s important for all teams to be able to compete. Maintain Salary Cap. Promote football across the country will goals of having football registrations in young men as high 3rd nation wide. Help create a better development league. Similar to CHL.
All teams need to own their own stadiums to control concessions. Mandate Canadian QB’s and RB’s. These are the glamour positions. Kids need to see Canadian kids playing this positions in the CFL.
I am for expansion but not at all costs. Ottawa Region is the fourth largest CMA in Canada so ideally the league needs to go back there. Plus it’s the National Capital. QC or a Mart-time team is fine as well, but only when they have a CFL Stadium.
Maybe another team in BC in the future. I am fine with an eight team league. I never understood why soon people hate it, then talk about how great the original six was in the NHL.
Oh and it’s Rough Riders. Ottawa Rough Riders, last time I check the Rough Riders haven’t played since 1996 but still have more grey cups than the roughriders. They were formed well before the team in Regina. And who cares if the teams have similar names. Cities, colours are different.
The SEC (one of the top NCAA conferences) have two Bulldogs and two tigers in a 12 team conference, nobody in the south cares. Why should we.
