Touchdown Atlantic 2011 Tickets On-sale May 11

Published on April 26, 2011 5:05 PM

Tickets are available:

  • to Hamilton and Calgary season ticket holders.
  • to those registered for a on-line pre-sale, May 10, 10 am
  • to the general public May 11, 10 am

No mention of it, but I am guessing the same number of tickets as last year are available, 20,725. Prices are up $10/ticket across the board this year, but get yours fast, they are still not expected to last long like last year.

Update: The site is no more, so here is the Stade Moncton Stadium seating plan from 2010.

Update May 8th: The Touchdown Atlantic page has the 2011 seating plan.

I guess the citizens of Regina will continue to take the subway to stadium events. No subway? Well, the L-Train then.

CFL Approves Four Rule Changes for 2011

Published on April 15, 2011 11:06 AM

I would describe three of the changes (instant replay, punting out of bounds, illegal participation) as tweaks to correct deficiencies based on experience in interpretation and the fourth (eliminating blocking below the waist on receptions) for player safety. In time, blocking below the waist may be eliminated altogether.

Lansdowne Concessions Negotiated

No, not the brand of smokies at football games, but settlement of 11 of 14 challenges to the project. Hard to see how the remaining challengers have a leg to stand on when all the local interested parties have signed off on these concessions in the plan.

A $409,000 profit after revenue increases in all major areas and operating expenses reduction. The full report shows the revenue and expense changes over the last five years. League revenue climbed 6.7% year-over-year as it approaches $2 million per team.

CFL Players Shocked by Head Injury Report

Published on April 5, 2011 11:39 PM

The only way change can occur is with the help of the players. And it sounds like the player reps think change is a good idea. Fans that complain should get a sample of the head-rattling shots they say will be missed from the game.
