  2. https://www.sportsbusinessdaily.com/.../CFL-ESPN.aspx Startup football properties, like Charlie Ebersols AAF and Vince McMahons XFL, have been getting plenty of ink these days as they prepare to launch spring leagues over the next year. In the midst of those well publicized launches, the 60-year-old Canadian Football League also has been making moves to grow and modernize. The league, known for only having three downs and much wider fields than the NFL, will announce a multiyear renewal of its media rights deal in the U.S. with ESPN thi

  3. Perception is very important and eventually costs dollars. Here’s another aspect. The league just forced teams to cap their spending on football operations. There is no CBA. It’s a league with limited resources, yet the commissioner and some of the scarce league office staff have time to grab ass with Mexican football and now German football? Actual attendance at games in BC, Toronto and Montreal isn’t even hitting 5 digits. Look at the officiating, which is another area that needs resources. If it’s minus 30 and you don’t have a front door you don’t start drywalling the

  4. The Liberals have killed pipelines. Alberta's lost about 20,000 oil-related jobs. Now...back to football please.

  5. Exactly how did Trudeau and the Liberals force down the international price of petroleum? It would be amazing if a country which produces less than 6% of world petroleum could do that.

  11. Ed Tait - @EdTaitWFC The #Bombers select DB Sergio Schiaffino. Stands 5-9, weighs 175. Tempted to say here I’m shocked he fell this far in the draft and was still available. 😀 My favourite tweet on the subject.

  12. YEAH that is kinda funny...from what I know/hear..players can't get out of there fast enough when the season is over...or during a by week. I actually think Winnipeg probably has to, or is close to be the city with the most post/carer players who stick around..American and Canadian...or it sure appears that way

  15. The #1 priority should be the CBA. Get that done, then look at selling the CFL in other countries.

  16. Doesn't that thing have to pass 3rd reading in the house to become law...So many changes I just can't see it being implemented in it's present form...IF it is the oil industry better be prepared to exit as an economic driver in this country... With regard to the Mexican adventure????Seems a stretch if it becomes a winner for the CFL....I remember only to well a big adventure when we had American teams and the thing went sideways...But I'll go with nothing ventured nothing........well you know???

  22. I am absolutely positive that we're going to look back on this Mexican project the same way we do the American expansion, one day. Just "What the **** were they thinking...??" kinda thing...

  28. I guess according to the media in this country, Regina is the only city in the CFL where players can work in the off season or start a new career for after football. What a bunch of ****.

  29. 2019 free agency hasn't even started yet. Getting Bighill locked up here is absolutely, unequivocally more crucial right now than a soon-to-be sophomore QB who has a year remaining on his contract. That's not even up for debate at this moment in time.

  30. Of course the Riders are going to try persuade him, but chances are basically nill that he signs there. Put yourself in his shoes. A 3 year extension at around 600k per year is going to offered by Edmonton, BC, Sask, and maybe even Calgary throws their hat into the ring. This very well could be his last contract if he wants it to be as he's not a spring chicken and he's made some decent money in his career. Abandon the city he played most of his career in (Edmonton), pass up the chance to play in Vancouver closer to family, to play in a dump of a small town in Regina? I HI

  32. This is one of the funniest things I've read on here in a long time... And I pray Bighill or his agent doesn't see it... I don't think we've had an FA as important as Bighill in years and years around these parts....

  33. I'd be lying if I said I have never been there or done that. Something gets posted in a fit of anger or emotion & then later it's like, why did I say that??? Luckily, the members here are a pretty forgiving bunch for the most part. Tomorrow is a brand new day.

  35. Calgary used to have outstanding opportunities in the O & G industry before Trudeau & the Liberals killed it off. I know of more than a few players who became millionaires after they finished playing for the Stamps.
