The NHL managed to run. But the CFL isn't as big and rich as the NHL.
But, the CPL, a much smaller league, also managed to run last year.
The NBA, NFL, MLB, Major League Rugby, Premier Lacrosse league, countless other soccer and rugby leagues, have all managed to run since March 2020.
The CFL took off 2020. "Now the time has come to shift our focus to 2021 and beyond. We will be back. And we will use this time to ensure the CFL comes back stronger than ever." - Randy Ambrosie, Aug 17 2020.
So now they've had 8 months since then.
They released a schedule months ago, only now a month or so away it's becoming clear they won't keep it. Why bother releasing it?
I've still been paying for my seasons tickets. I'm still paying for my Grey Cup tickets. I even paid that much money again, to support the league with their stupid fan base. I'm sure many other did the same.
So they've had time, money, examples from every other sports league on earth, both larger and smaller. They have billionaire owners like MLSE and Bob Young. Why the actual fuck haven't they been able to get their shit together? Are they so singularly, spectacular incompetent to be the only league that can't get its head out of its ass?
If, in mid April 2021, they're about to postpone the beginning of the season, then why on earth would they have released a schedule in November 2020 with clearly no plan in place to meet it?
