Toronto and Vancouver are big enough that they fancy they might get a real football team.The potential for Canadian expansion teams and getting more asses in the seats is a damn good thing. I'm tired of having carry teams like the Lions and Argos.
CFL unveils 2021 schedule, Ticats-Bombers to open season
The CFL released its 2021 schedule Friday, and the Hamilton Tiger-Cats will face the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in the opening game of the regular season.
The 2019 Grey Cup rematch will take place Thursday, June 10. The preseason kicks off May 23 with the BC Lions traveling to face the Calgary Stampeders.
"We're looking forward to hosting our comeback season in our stadiums, in front of our fans," CFL commissioner Randy Ambrosie said in the announcement. "With this schedule, we're signaling that we're looking forward with optimism to playing in 2021."
The CFL nixed the 2020 season due to COVID-19 issues and a lack of funding from the Canadian government.
To limit cross-country travel, the 2021 schedule includes eight more divisional games than usual. As a result, not every team will visit every stadium at least once over the course of the season.
The Labor Day week - Week 13 - features five games:
The 2021 Grey Cup will be awarded Nov. 21, with Hamilton set to serve as the host city.
Its a go until the Ottawa Variant which is coming by June will change that. It votes by mail for you without you knowing.What did he mean by in front of our fans? Will we be able to attend any games in person at a stadium or in front of a TV only? Beer will be a lot cheaper staying at home. Lol. Will people have to wear a face diaper mask and stay their distance from others or will fans be able to enter a stadium mask free and fans will be able to sit close together? By May this virus should be gone. Well, maybe be gone. That will depend on our dear leaders and whether they want to keep this bull chit going. my feelings are that they want to keep it going. Just saying.
