I can see LeBlanc wanting way more than just 20 million and just abandoning the project all together. 

Yeah, that's kind of what I was thinking too. He's not exactly known for using his money to make things happen.

 

I'm of the opinion that if he can't make it work with this money then it's not going to happen.

Did anyone notice the helmet that was used at the Toronto Argonauts' press conference announcing the hiring of Ryan Dinwiddie?

Would expect a team to use their primary helmet with primary logo for this type of announcement.  The Argos made the decision mid-season in 2019 to use the Football with Sails logo for the rest of the year.  A possible sign that this is the new primary helmet and primary logo moving forward?

So what colour uniforms will the Atlantic Schooners end up with?  I would be for them going with a maroon uniform.  No other CFL team wearing that colour and it would tie in with the university team in the Halifax Region (Saint Mary's Huskies).  

Maroon with sea foam green would look pretty cool. Maybe orange, yellow, and dark teal could work.

I wouldn't put anything into this. They finished the season wearing those.

Well the original Schooners appeared to be black and gold.

But also blue and gold.

During the Grey Cup festival in the couple days prior to the game, each team has an area for festival goers (kind of like the countries having houses during the Olympics) and a group from the Maritimes has "unofficially" represented the Atlantic Schooners for the past 12 Grey Cups, using a black and silver Schooners logo. This most recent Grey Cup, the one that just happened, was the first after it was announced this new expansion team would be called the Atlantic Schooners and the team was added with a blue blackground, as seen below.

So there are three, maybe four, Schooners colour schemes that exist in one form or another. Black and gold, blue and gold, and black and silver (with the fourth scheme potentially being whatever the blue added on to the Grey Cup festival logo is).

 

But there could also not be any connection to be made to any of these logos, who knows?

Like the maroon and sea form green idea.

 

I like the idea of maroon with silver trim.  No CFL teams currently have silver pants.  Lets get one back in the silver pants.  Would want them to be shiny silver like the Raiders have and not grey.

 

Also like the idea of maroon with light blue trim.  See that colour scheme a lot with English Premier League clubs (well, claret and blue).  Don't really see that in North American pro sports.  Would look good on a football uniform and have some uniqueness.

Also Montreal struggling to get a GM likely as a result.  Interesting to see that Wally Buono just could not stay retired and will be helping out his old club from decades back.

Interesting to read that the Wetenhalls may still have some involvement in ownership moving forward.

At this rate, the Expos will be back in Montreal before the Alouettes get new owners.

 

As for the Atlantic Schooners, I hope they do happen because it balances things out schedule-wise.  It also gets a new crop of players and coaches.
