There was only one opportunity to have your pick of seats in the house and it has passed. “It’s time to get on board”.

RedBlacks May Start on Road

Schedule is a ways away from being decided and the progress on the stadium will be more certain in Feb. They will need a pre-season game in the new home unless there is plans to hold it somewhere else. I can see a couple game road swing, but not sure if they have to hold out to mid-July trying to wait for the site to be perfect.

Do you give up once every 10-20 year track events by getting rid of it or just cover it up to make it a little safer? Will following Mike Reilly’s advice at some point add years to the usefulness of the facility?

Williams, CFLPA, Ti-Cats, CFL Broker Settlement

Published on October 2, 2013 9:12 PM

Seems oddly precedent setting of an agreement that is obviously outside of the norms in releasing Williams but having Hamilton retain his CFL rights until the end of 2014. While all parties were involved in the agreement, I would think if a team and player came to the same agreement on their own there would be objections.
