I’ve been seeing lots of good ideas in various threads about how to help the CFL grow. However, a few of those solutions are at odds, such as whether it’s better to schedule fewer games on Thursdays (leading to better stadium attendance) or it’s better to schedule more games on Thursdays because the TV viewership is better.
The easy answer is “both,” but not very helpful. The stewards of the CFL ship have to make some decisions about which direction is best – more TV viewers (which would lead to more TV revenue in the next contract) or better stadium attendance (which would generate more direct revenue to the individual teams).
The hard part is deciding which way the league should go.
