In 2013, the current TV deal will expire and I would like your opinion on how the CFL should present a new TV package deal from 2014 onward. Questions I have in mind for you:
-Should CFL go for the two networks to carry the coverage with the fixed starting time per week throughout the year and each network can show 2 games per week with the rights to the Grey Cup once every two years for the network? The playoff packages with one network focusing on the East and another focus in the west or should they offer one playoff game with other network carrying three playoff games with rotating Grey Cup as a part of the deal?
-Should the CFL goes away with the blackout rule or keep the rule? Why and why not?
-Should the CFL retain the one-network package and have the network carry all games? Why and why not?
-Will the CFL consider adding the 20th week with two byes to prevent the odd-scheduled 3 games in 15 days in the summer? With the extra week off, the schedule per week will always be 4 games per week on a weekend. This will result in December Grey Cup on the first Sunday of December or two weeks early on the start of the regular season, result a few loss on the gate revenue.
-If we keep the 19th week regular season, and the teams are playing a doubleheader games during a certain week during the season, what kind of fixed schedule it should look like to make things fair for all teams to go through this?
-Pro and con of having one network like TSN to carry all games
