The CFL doesn’t make a ton of money. We know that. But we also don’t want to see public dollars go to the league. That’s the latest development from league reps–asking the feds for dollars to get a shortened season off the ground. It hurts to say it, but cancel the season. NHL should’ve cancelled, heck, all of the pro leagues should’ve. But alas, money is the name of the game. CFL, needs some, but without fans in the seats (the primary revenue maker), there’s not much that can be done. You can’t ask the players to work for basically free.
So back to the drawing board, make some changes in the off season (the extended one), and come strong with a 20 game season in 2021.
