Football back in Ottawa would be too good to be true! I miss it so much despite the unsuccess of the previous team! But I think we will see it one day... :cross:

Next week is the final homestand of the Lynx.....and pro-football is still dead in Ottawa.

I'm not as optimistic as some of you. I haven't seen even a glimmer of hope that football will make a return. At least not for another 3 years.....maybe more.

There's just too many factors not in favour of it returning. The Lansdowne issue...I truly believe the city wants to develop it into something other than a stadium. City council & Larry O'Brien come across as everything other than football friendly.....and this city just moves at a different speed than most other places.

Bank st. has been closed between Laurier & Wellington for over 18 months, and doesn't appear to be opening anytime soon. That about sums up how things work in Ottawa.

It looks bleak.

According to the Ottawa Sun, the stadium has cracks on the south side and is closed. They even had to close dressing rooms for the Gee Gees.

I don't see any CFL in Ottawa for a very, very long time if this is true. Are they going to spend a lot to upgrade the stadium? I doubt it, for what team? Build a new stadium? I doubt it, where's the money and for what team? Just close the south stands and use it as a rec facility and university stadium probably.

There are those on council here in Ottawa who are probably loving the fact that the south side was found to be unstable, that's the sad truth.

I snuck on here to reset login info for site and saw the petition.

There was no way I wasn't going to sign this.

Uncharacteristically, I couldn't think of something to add to sentiments expressed. :wink:

Thanks, Ripley for initiative and all those who signed.

Today's news tho about problems with South Side stands must make certain politicians gleeful for possible excuse to rip it down and put up those bloody condos etc. A decade later and we're fighting same fight. :?

I'm up for it as best I can tho

Now with today's news about city recommending demolishing the affected part of stands and Mayor coming out saying there's potential local ownership sniffing around and he's been in touch with Cohon, this never-ending saga will continue.

Not one to follow if you can't take the perennial ups and downs, that's for sure.

Oh, and Glenegade, thanks for nominating me to be chained to fence. Think there'd be people who'd use it as excuse to pelt me with various objects. :rotf: :rotf:

I am a big time fan of the CFL and wish you nothing but the best for returning a team to the CFL. I saw Ottawa play in Tornoto at the C.N.E. and serveral times here in Winnipeg. It would be nice to see team wearing the "R" again.

My husband and I just signed, # 252 & 252

I'd love to see Ottawa get their team back, I miss our annual October bus trip to their fine city to watch the Als/Renegades.
