Re: COVID-19 : How it could impact Lions/CFL

I'm all for it! 6 games is better than zero games for this fan.

Not sure I love 8 teams in the playoffs though. If they did 6 teams, then that 6 game season would be exciting (and meaningful).

Re: Claybrooks

The team was unwatchable. There were little if any mitigating factors for claybrooks to stay. The fan base is low and they were losing badly. Short leash seemed appropriate.

Re: COVID-19 : How it could impact Lions/CFL

Would be cool if they used bc place as the hub venue, and allowed season ticket holders to attend. They could probably manage a few thousand per game.

Re: COVID-19 : How it could impact Lions/CFL

Good point about skytrain. Yet another reason why the top doctors might continue to ban larger gatherings.

With all the precautions that may be necessary, at some point fans will ask themselves if it's worth it. Entertainment industry as a whole is in tough.

Re: Good and Bad BC Lions Season Commercials and Campaigns

Not a fan of "nothing rhymes with orange."

What does that even mean? That the lions are unique? They were uniquely bad last year, so I guess it's accurate.

Anyhow, replace the marketing team.

Re: Good and Bad BC Lions Season Commercials and Campaigns

Those old commercials are great! So do the lions even advertise any more? I don't recall seeing anything the past few years.

Re: COVID-19 : How it could impact Lions/CFL

Are you able to convince all these owners that guaranteed losses is okay? Maybe for years? Of course it's about the money. Maybe not ALL about money, but it's a big factor. If money was so important, they wouldn't buy into the CFL in the first place. Money is important to everyone. If anything, mor...

Re: COVID-19 : How it could impact Lions/CFL

Some good points guys.

The NHL timeline has their training camp starting early to mid July. That means the playoffs would start late July and probably wrap up end of September? 5 rounds!

I agree with your sentiments, but money talks. I really hope they do it, I just question the viability.

Re: COVID-19 : How it could impact Lions/CFL

What a mess for the cfl. Assuming they can even play a partial season, by the time they start, they'll be competing with all 4 major league sports. Further, they don't have the revenue scale of these other leagues to make it make much sense, as much of the overhead costs are fixed. I don't know what...

Re: why is CFL interest so tepid in toronto?

Yeah what's up with 3 bye weeks? The schedule always looks so porous now. Seems like a couple times per season there's a month between home games.

Canada Day kick off... I like that.

Re: why is CFL interest so tepid in toronto?

There's a tremendous marketing partnership opportunity here. That is, to market Canadian pride and the CFL. America and the NFL are masterful at this. Why can't we do it?

Re: COVID-19 : How it could impact Lions/CFL

It just occurred to me in discussion about the stadium and it's Corporation that they may have a whole world of of financial issues going forward. Where is their revenue coming from? Seems to me that they may have trouble surviving in their current incarnation. They have this hugely expensive infra...

Re: CFL Stadiums and Game Day Experiences

BC fan. I agree they might lose some long time, older season ticket holders. My dad likes the temperature at exactly 21 degrees. Mess with the thermostat at his home and you'll here about it, for days. I think the example of attendance falling at empire field has a lot to do with that it was in a ba...

Re: CFL Stadiums and Game Day Experiences

Bingo, David. It's just a tough sell. As a season ticket holder with lots of sports fan buddies, I often can't give my second mid field seat away. It's not that they are snobs (well maybe a little), it's just not an attractive event for most. Live football, without the ambience of open air, energize...
