Just want to address this topic because i believe that the CFL is gaining support south of the border i.e more televised games. You cannot underestimate the impact television has. I really didn't know much about the CFL, but got the hang of it after watching a couple of exciting games last year. Another factor that made me attracted to the CFL is the different rules, it gives the league character and shows it not a cheap NFL knockoff. I believe part increasing interest of it is due to the NHL strike and being stuck watching boring baseball and basketball. The CFL gives us in the US a chance to get our football blood brewing, it sure beats watching a boring/meaningless baseball game. With talk of expansion I believe that the CFL will continue to grow in fans and support, even down in the States. No I'am not talking about expansion south of the border, that already happened and didn't work. It could've if you put it on the border states.
p.s. Heading up north for my first CFL game. Montreal vs. Edmonton next week. Should be a great game.
