Expansion In The Cfl

Okay, well I know quite a few of our members here are from the maritimes, and being a big CFL fan, I was curious as to how many of you easterners would consider attending some football games if you guys got a team? If you have any opinions just type them out, it's about time we got a CFL thread on here!


Alex

P.S. GO ARGOS

Halifax should have got a team 15-20 years ago! But they have no stadium. And now, with the popularity of 3-down football in Quebec being what it is, its going to be pretty hard to keep the CFL ou of Laval.

I vote for the Schooners though. Almost happened once. Tom Wright will make it happen. He's da man.

Go Green Riders...........

Another team for the Stamps and Ti-Cats to kick butt on would be nice.

(Sorry, I'm always loyal to my hometown... but I've always loved Hamilton too! Danny Mac is the man!)

Fatty Mac is indeed the man this year. 550 yards passing last game! Holy sh*t!!!! He's on FIRE. If only he had Darren Flutie back..........

I agree, I was at the game against Winnipeg and I was extremely impressed, I mean his first past went for almost 80 yards, incredible!

Riders are having a rough start so far, they're my second favourite team and I was pretty dissapointed to see Nealone go down so early in Toronto, however it did help give the Argos their first win. I still don't understand why Butler went in instead of Burris that game though, I was at the game and I saw Burris warming up on the sidelines and he looked fine, he even held the Mccalums first field goal.....

I've always thought that there's too many teams in the NFL.

Maybe they can donate the Cinncinnati Bengals to a good cause...

The Cfl only has 9 teams as of now, another team in the east will even out the leauges. I agree that the nfl has too many teams, but making the Cfl have 10 teams compared the Nfls 28/29(or however many, Nfl sucks so I wouldn't know) shouldn't take away from the game.

Bombers rock, Kevin I agree. I own THREE Bombers jerseys and they aren't even my favorite team, LOL!! Milt (Turtle) is just a gamer.

But does all the really matter when the best defence in the LEAGUE just SWARMED the BC backfield while Smilin' Hank promptly throws for 350+ yards and FOUR touchdowns? When the Deadmonton Eskimos lose and the Taylor Field hopeful win all in the same day, you know all is right with the world.

Moncton and halifax are fighting over a team. Moncton is a growing city but I think if a team was going to survive it would have to be in Halifax. If it did go to Moncton I would try to make it to a few games for sure! I think now a days I would sooner go to a CFL game then an NHL game. Who's got that kinda money?
Cheers,
Trevor

Kerry Joseph is the entire reason. THat and special teams coverage. If they get a true sack specialist (Elfrid Payton maybe??), they could have a championship team.
