Ok, I've waited about a week now, and still no ideas from Bluto as to how the CFL can change it's ways to survive the NFL moving in permanently
if somehow the Godfrey cabal manages to outbid all other potential buyers for the Bills...and that if a Big IF regardless of that platitude some here like to spout about avalanches, mere wishful thinking at it's best.
To recap Bluto, here is what he has said:
bluto wrote:i don't see why anyone thinks that the NFL's inevitable inclusion of Toronto is the death knell of the CFL. It needn't have any negative effect. In fact, if teamed up properly, it could be a boon. You can't see any potentially partenerships that could strengthen the CFL while benefitting the NFL as well?
The CFL and its fans can kick, scream and whine and vainly try to block the inevitable and end up looking frightened and bush-league...or they can negotiate the best arrangement for coexistence now and actually try to benefit.
The CFL can lay the groundwork for a new relationship now, or they can wish later that they had. Then if the CFL does get killed off because it lacked forsight and adaptability the chicken-littles of today will be proud to crow about how they told us so.
Stalwartly allowing a grand tradition and its fans to endure hardship rather than modify the current way the CFL does business.
And I ask again Ry, explain the bolded parts to me if you can....HOW would you change the way the CFL does business
, what kind of deal could benefit the NFL? Provide examples please. (as if they need any help really, the CFL is the only team in danger here)
Or admit it was all just hyperbole, wishful thinking and assumptions with little basis in fact, just what you want
Especially the part about the NFL coming here as 'inevitable'. They said the same thing about Toronto getting the Olympics too, crowing about how much better TO was than China, how World Class it is, and how bad Chinas Human Rights record was to keep anyone from thinking TO had even a glimmer of possibility of NOT getting the Olympics...and we didn't, did we? I don't know why people think Toronto deserves the NFL, they didn't support the Phantoms and they barely support the Argos, in fact TO just isn't a football town at all really, they just love the Leafs and some just love anything 'big US league' even if it's crap.
If TO was going to get an NFL team they'd have one by now IMO. The NFL has a nicely balanced schedule, even number of teams, and are at the point if they grow too big you will see the dilution of talent we see in the NHL. All that leaves is buying a team, and they don't go for sale often. Yeah, they do move for better deals to new cities or new stadiums but don't change Owners all that often. That's why RW dying and his Estate auctioning the team off to the highest bidder, as he said they're going to do
, is a big deal because it's also a rare one. So yes I do believe it will attract a LOT of interest down south, the Godfrey Cabal bid will only be one of many
unless RW has been lying all along and has already promised the Bills to the traitorous dogs. Is RW lying Ry? Do you know this?
Don't take this as a personal attack Ry, it isn't at all, I just don't like it when someone talks down to me while giving people like me a slap in the face, expecting us to just accept what they say as Gospel. That won't wash with me, I require at least a reasoned argument before I'll change my mind. I'm kinda stubborn that way.
