  1. Are you in favour of future American expansion? Why?

Yes. I am in favour of it because I feel that it's inevitable, especially with other pro leagues dropping like flies. The CFL is a well established league and there are plenty of pro caliber players out of work. If the CFL is going to grow (who's not sick of playing the same teams over and over?) I believe American expansion will happen. I don't want it done like it was the last time and they're going to have to figure something out as far as the Canadian content rule is concerned... but I do think that it will happen again... but it will work this time!

NO!!! This is the Canadian Football League, and expansion should go to Ottawa, Quebec City, and perhaps Halifax, NOT anywhere in the USA.

  2. No - let's keep the "Canadian" aspect of the CFL. My worry is that the identity of Canadian football will be lost if it moves to America. I still think that the American market identifies too strongly with the NFL and NCAA for the CFL to even make a dent in that market.

    • Minnesota Vikings
  • Cleveland Browns
  • Argonaut Retro Blues
  • Chicago Bears
  • New York Giants
  • Baltimore Ravens
  • Cincinnati Bengals

US expansion:

No way. I'm against it on principle and I believe it would fail and damage the league financially and otherwise.

They can't "figure something out" re. the content rule-- it's illegal in the US to have a rule limiting US employment by American teams or any other employers.

More than that, Americans will not be any more interested this time than they were last time in watching "funny football" with the wrong number of players and downs on a wrong sized field and with strange scoring. None of the history and heritage of the CFL has any meaning for American fans. They won't see it as quaint or charming or intriguingly different, just weird and not "real" football. The CFL wasn't a hit last time in the US (with the single exception of Baltimore, which was in the unique, non-recurring position of being starved for football and ready to grab hold of a replacement after the midnight express-style loss of their NFL team) and it won't be in future--- it isn't their game of football any more than the failed Arena League was. If anything, less so.

Now what if the CFL made an American division that played by "American rules"? The winners of the CFL would win the Grey Cup and the winners of the American League would win the "FedEx/Budweiser Championship Dorito Bowl".

The 2 Champions could then play a 2 game exhibition "Championship".

I dunno... just throwing weird ideas out there!

I want to see more football leagues but the CFL seems like the only league other than the NFL with any staying power.
