    If the CFL season goes ahead somehow someway, the Argos have to be favoured. The one team in the league that is used to playing in a near empty stadium.

    All 30 of them should be able to figure it out in a 22,000 capacity stadium.

    You'd hope so, but I hear their braincells are a lot lower than here, so dunno if I can hold out hope for them :P

    Probably Toronto and BC.

    If the four Prairie teams could put together a six-game home and home season and have the first and second place teams play for the Grey Cup, I'd still watch. No reason you couldn't have asses in the seats either, the plague never really hit these cities to begin with. Wishful thinking, I know.

    But without asses in the seats, there's just no way the league plays this year, unless the players and owners just decided to divy up the TV money equitably and everyone played for a share of it. Players probably wouldn't risk their bodies for reduced paychecks though.

    Especially in a league that survives off gate revenue.

    I agree but sadly I think what you have described here may be the future seasons (beyond) 2020 as well.

    Even more reason to goto the game live now.

    Way better than listening to the idiots they have now.

    Cuthbert is a huge loss for TSN. He can do hockey and CFL equally well. Surprised they didn't try keep him and just give up someone that is hockey only. Be interesting to see if Sportsnet can get anymore of the talent.

    The real problem I see is Sportsnet was making huge cuts not that long ago, so who knows exactly how much money they have to spend.

    I doubt it means more Rod Black as the way CFL is scheduled the most a commentator can do per week is typically two games which Black was already doing for the most part.

    Likely means more Dustin Nielson with some sprinklings of Gord Miller and maybe somebody new on weekends that feature a triple header. I wouldn't be surpristed they tried giving a couple games to one of the female TSN hosts.

    Play in a domed Stadium only makes sense if the season is extended in to the cold months.

    CFL only seems to make sense in WC anyhoo.

    How would we know the difference if the Argos went with reduced attendance, and isolated distancing crowds

    I'm sure that joke has made the rounds.

    If a tree falls in the forest and nobody sees it the Argos are at a homegame...

    I have a feeling this is not going to turn out well.

    Usually when a team goes over the salary cap they win more than four games.
