So for the 3rd time this decade, the Grey Cup was played on a field with stitched-in yellow soccer lines.
I know it’s not a big deal and I’m perhaps the only one mentioning this but why is Canada’s national championship of football being played on the equivalent of a high school practice field with multi-sport markings?
I mean, the grounds crew were tasked with covering the permanent Stamps and U of C with green paint and then painting the Bombers and Ticats logos overtop. Did no one think to use this removable green paint on the soccer lines to have a more professional presentation for the CFL’s showcase game?
Can someone from Regina tell me if the Riders were doing this this year with their stitched in yellow soccer lines? I thought I’d seen them removed in Regina but back for the league run West Final.
Like I said, no big deal I suppose but this is the kind of oversight that got last year’s Grey Cup played on a skating rink.
Presentation details like this can help the league elevate its profile.
