Re: Who will be the red blacks starting Qb?

Calgary is more likely to lose one of their West Division All Star kickers than a QB.

Re: Could the TD Atlantic be Successful as just a yearly eve

Personally I was hoping that this year with the Ticats on the road that they would play 2 games out there over a 2 week period. I think that would really turn the tide on the experiment on whether the region could grow their own team. The atmosphere for one game is fantastic, if they could carry tha...

Re: 7th round to the Canadian draft

I do find the "Canadian talent has never been better" portion of the press release a little laughable. The CFL used to draft upwards of 100 players a year back in the early 80s when there were fewer Canadian schools playing at the university level. It's about time they bumped the draft back to 7 and...

Those rings look fantastic! Braley bought something like 200 of them? Amazing.

What would a pre-season game in Toronto draw?

2011 - 12,851
2010 - 12,514
2009 - 18,241

Not exactly numbers that show any sort of reason to keep it in the evening. Might as well turn it into an event with a lot of energetic kids to cheer, scream, yell, holler, jump up and down, and buy popcorn.

Re: ESPN

So that works out to $50+ million per team? Must be nice!

Re: Does the CFL need/want USA exposure?

The larger the TV audience the larger sum you can charge for advertising at the game. That Coca Cola signboard on the sidelines goes up in price with a larger ratings number in the States and therefore makes the home team just a little more profitable. Coca Cola, Reebok, Nissan, even Scotiabank oper...

Re: Does the CFL need/want USA exposure?

The aspect of drawing players from the south is an interesting one. Probably better taking a swing at the agents and coaches than the players themselves but getting solid exposure down south would be nice.

Even if just for selfish reasons so that I can watch games while traveling!

Re: More teams in the Atlantic area to come?

I'm always amazed at the arguments used against creating a football program. Especially love the comments from the captain of the soccer team. Now there hasn't been a lot of the research done in Canada as their has been in the US about adding football programs to colleges but using the US numbers he...

Re: Draft Guide

The Draft Guide has a fair bit more than the 2010 version had including interviews with a couple of prospects, a past #1 pick, articles on every CFL team, plus quite a bit more. Even a 13th Man ad! (Thanks D for the support!)
