Notice how almost all the summer games are on the weekend this season now that TSN has taken over? It bites!
In the Great White North, we only get so many summer weekends to go camping or head to the lake. This means that any CFL club with a game scheduled Fri, Sat, Sun, has to compete with people who would like to enjoy the weekend outdoors.
I don't know what TSN is paying the CFL for broadcast rights, but I bet it is nowhere near what is lost in gate receipts across the CFL.
It'll be interesting to see at the end of the summer how it pans out. I think the only stadium that will sell out on weekends is Saskatchewan. You could schedule a Rider exhibition game during WWIII with bombs dropping overhead and the game would still be a sellout.
Right now the the only sellout I see is the CFL head office.
