I came across this article today that talks about the CFL expanding into the States, it's nothing official just a reporter giving his two cents.[url=http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1685288-cfl-usa-how-to-make-it-work-this-time-and-15-places-where-it-could]http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1685 ... e-it-could[/url]
The guy talks about 15 different cities but seems to dismiss them after he talks about them. It makes a couple good points but would have to be a whole lot more convincing before anything like that would be considered.
It could be something to explore in about 10 years after a couple of CBA and TV contracts have come and gone. If the league keeps expanding in Canada and if ESPN ratings in the US, continue to increase, more Americans are watching and being exposed to the game, having a separate US only division that would play only in the States might work.
Each team could have a couple of inter-league games, as they do in baseball. Canadian teams would solely vie for the Grey Cup and they could create another trophy for the US vs. Can. game.
I don't think it has much merit but it is something to talk about.
