So far, I haven’t traveled much to other CFL cities, so I thought: “This year is the year”. I decided I’d go see some of your stadiums and, perhaps, meet some of you. But I thought, “If I am to travel to go see football games, I should pick weekends and places where I can see two games so that I don’t go all the way there just for one.”
It was then logical that my two first trips would get me in Alberta, when both the Stampeders and the Eskimos play home games on the same weekend, and in Ontario, when both the Tiger-Cats and the Argonauts host a game on the same weekend.
I checked the schedule provided on this site and booked my plans. I decided to go:
- To McMahon stadium on July 7;
- To Commonwealth stadium on July 8;
- To Ivor Wynn stadium on August 19, and
- To Rogers “Skydump” stadium on August 20.
Now you tell me: What the heck is wrong with all those dates?
RIGHT! There are no games there on these dates.
Why? Because all “the home teams” are on the road!
Why did I picked these dates, then? Because the schedule on this site was BACKWARD! I just crossed-checked the schedule taken here two days ago and the one currently available and everything is the opposite!
I know the CFL had credibility issues in the past. It certainly isn’t helping itself when making such mistakes. You’d think the league own website should be a reliable source of info. They should be more careful…
