Following this report last week, the RedBlacks say that Grey Cup cost sharing changes are coming in 2018, but they are pushing for more. Good luck to them in fixing this difficult area in cost and revenue sharing.
Information in this article, though not clear, seems to indicate the RedBlacks were responsible last year for paying their players the Grey Cup bonus. My previous understanding was this was paid out of Grey Cup host revenues (same as playoff bonuses paid out of playoff game revenues), and fell back to the league if the host was unable to make payment due to a shortfall in revenue. Would like to receive confirmation of the actual current practice.
