Halifax Stadium Land Targeted for School Board Purchase

Published on April 28, 2014 10:22 PM

Not really a conflict, for the school would never have been targeted in the city’s acquisition. The former DND housing complex area is plenty big enough for a stadium. $2.8 million for the remainder of the land may seem steep for some, but sounds like a deal to me.

’Riders Exceed 2013 Cap

Published on April 23, 2014 11:59 PM

The rules and penalties are clear, complaining about them afterwards is backwards. $18K is not flagrant disregard of the cap, it is unforeseen circumstances, less than half a minimum salary. There is clearly no advantage being sought here, paying fines and penalties because their war chest is deep. Just more needless criticism of the CFL’s policies because everyone else knows best.

I am saddened by the news of Bill Quinter’s passing. My condolences to the Quinter family.

Although he didn’t have success in Saskatchewan as a GM, the profiles from his hiring there perhaps explain him and why he didn’t succeed in a position fraught with power struggles. He was good for Canadian football for many years.
