The whole idea of having a football team in Moncton is a bit of a joke because basically the only way it is viable is if people drive in from other cities. Well look around…where is the only big city anywhere near Moncton? Where is basically all the money and wealth in Atlantic Canada? Metro Halifax. So basically you are relying on Halifax to fill your seats. Moncton has about 120,000 people max…that’s taking like every freaken person who is remotely near the urban area. so 25k are needed per game. Are you telling me that at least one in every five people are going to go to these games?
Fact is even Halifax is too small to support pro football. Halifax and Moncton combined in one city would still be the smallest market in the CFL by far behind Sask.
I just don’t see it being viable. In fact, I think PQ City is the only possible expansion site and even that is very risky.
