We're entering the post-Labour Day part of the schedule where CFL gamedays have to avoid Thursdays and Sundays so TSN/CTV doesn't have schedule conflicts with the NFL. When the league released the revised 14-game schedule, I was surprised to see three Tuesday/Wednesday games in the autumn here. But since I live in the Eastern Time Zone, I really like this set up since double header Fridays are too late and I usually can't watch all three games on a Saturday. It also lines up well with Thanksgiving since it ends before that weekend and the Argonauts and Redblacks have enough time before the Monday.
The downside to weekday games are for the people going to the games, but I'm actually looking forward to going to the Argos' Wednesday game on October 6. I probably wouldn't be doing much on that weeknight anyway.
I was even thinking that the league could schedule the Argos vs. Tiger-Cats Labour Day rematch for nine days later on the following Wednesday to give teams a proper break (the Friday rematch four days later is always tough on players). Although for visiting Hamilton fans, it might be tricky.
What do you guys think of how the autumn games are set up? What would you rather have for next year's fall schedule?
