I am a big fan of the Canadian game & I think it's high time that the CFL re-consider expanding the CFL by 2 teams preferably in the US of A. Here are my reasons;
a) 8 teams is not currently quite enough to generate a sufficiently broad level of interest . 2 teams are struggling so badly that it leaves only 6 teams that are competing at a level sufficient to maintain natinal interest. If these 2 teams don't pick up their socks & invest more in talent, they will risk bankrupcty...or at the very least, marginalization . Hamilton is expecially vulnerable ...and let's not forget Ottawa.
b) By having at least 2 US expansion teams (preferably border cities ) we are giving the American market another chance to reconsider our unique game & rules which are especially attractive during the months that the NFL is not even playing.
c) Having a few US teams ( The current Alouettes are the former Balimore Stallions )it provides fertile ground to generate more interest in our game, attract more talent,& potential for CFL TV licensing in the US.
