No CFL in BMO Phase 1 Expansion

Published on May 28, 2014 10:10 PM

So the Argos are out of luck for finding a new home at BMO. Or maybe the field renovations are just delayed and this isn’t over yet. So funny how the media reports previous speculation as fact now.

New Mosaic Stadium Design Announced

Published on May 22, 2014 3:16 PM

Impressive. Looks like a lot of consideration went into the design, from the sunken bowl, to the roof, the orientation, the concourses, the seating and more. It will add another modern, fan-focused stadium to the roster in Canada.

The limit of 40,000 seats for events like the Grey Cup will mean higher ticket prices. Fans better be prepared to pay for the new CFL

Cohon Big on Ottawa Football

Sigh. We do it to ourselves, we do. And that’s what really hurts.

Saying the Rough Riders are an example of football not working in Ottawa is like calling the Hudson Bay Company a failed startup. No matter how successful or how much history, anything given poor management will eventually fail. See any sports franchise Nelson Skalbania has owned.

Published on May 14, 2014 10:08 PM

Of interest from the annual report recording a $2.1 million profit is the expectation of season ticket sales between 21,500 and 23,000 going forward and that the CFL has not made a “final determination of its operating results for the year ended December 31, 2013” and therefore teams may be entitled to additional revenues or have to pay additional expenses once the CFL finalizes its accounts.

Board Approves All Rule Changes

Published on May 9, 2014 11:02 AM

The addition of video reviewable pass interference is called historic. I still think the CFL is rushing this and many changes without testing them first. You don’t make changes to your real games when the effects are unknown.

The board of governors should consider requiring all major changes be tested through one pre-season before it is decided to approve for full use. After some real games are played with the changes, the board can decide whether to implement immediately or defer for another season. The CFL can still be a leader if that is so important and protect the integrity of the game against untested rule changes.
