Glen Suitor says the next CFL Commissioner needs to be a football guy. Then he lists some football-related points as to why a football guy stepping into the office would be the right person to help get them done.
Now let’s be clear, I love Glen Suitor. I even understand what he is trying to say in his article. I think he raises a number of good initiatives that should be examined by the league. Equating them to a football guy, though, and insinuating that Mark Cohon failed to implement these because he was too busy with Ottawa and new stadiums is wrong. There are no low hanging fruit here, just pie in the sky ideas that reflect a lack of business constraints. The real commissioner will be working within the economics of the CFL.

With the talk of the qualities needed in the new commissioner, I think this article summarizes it nicely. The personality will be different but “an incredible leader”, someone who will sit “down with owners, players, sponsorship partners and even the average fan, engaging in open dialogue” and a vision for what the league needs to stand for and where it needs to go. Comfortable on his feet responding to challenges from the media as well as in the boardroom, but that comes with the confidence and vision.
