Sounds like he knows that they and the league won't be back.

 

Sounds like it rained a bunch and he liked that a few lunatics stuck it out to watch minor league football.

I am not optimistic that this league will finish the season and if they do, I'm not optimistic that there will be a second year.

But the CFL succeeds because it's just different enough to provide a truly alternate product. Different rules means games can't end the way NFL games can (i.e. no QB kneel). It also had the good fortune of starting up in the 1950s, before the NFL was anywhere near what it is today. And the Grey Cup is like a weekend-long event, isn't it? There's one game but there's a whole bunch of events beforehand, almost like an All-Star Game or weekend.

 

To clarify about the CFL for those who may not know.  It did start in the 1950s but it was not a creation of brand new teams from scratch.  The CFL was the amalgamation under one league of the eastern Interprovincial Rugby Football Union (IRFU) and the Western Interprovincial Football Union (WIFU).  Many of the teams already had long histories spanning decades before the official creation of the CFL as a league, with the IRFU and WIFU winners meeting for the Grey Cup.   Some of the teams existing prior to when the first Grey Cup was presented in 1909.

It was their last home game I believe and with no postseason to look forward to he might of just been saying thanks.

 

They are supposed to have a home game in the last week of the season against the Atlanta Legends. I'm guessing if that game ever happens, it'll be in the triple digits as far as attendance goes.

What was the point of playing this weekend if theyre gonna fold..too lose even more money?. Seems silly to me. They will finish out the season(inc playoffs/championship) then we can expect a decision....

Common courtesy to @ another user if you’re going to take a shot at him. 😉 Chris gave us the technology, we might as well use it. 😁

Fair enough, but I really don't know if that qualified as "taking a shot"... It just seems from reading this thread that the complete and utter destruction of this league is some sort of lifelong dream of his, and I was just hoping, for his sake, that it might soon come to fruition.

While I don't think this league was ever going to be successful, at least they tried. And they did it right. They didn't seem to take "cheap shots" at the NFL, it was just "here's a springtime league." It's the XFL I want to see fail. With its smug, "our players are 'Real Americans'(TM)" image and the idea that it's going to be "real" football. It's going to be hilarious watching it fail for the second time.
