Someone May Want to inform the Roughriders...

Recommended Posts

..or at least the organizers of this event that there is no CFL franchise known as the Atlantic Schooners...and that the Montreal Alouettes and Edmonton Eskimos are!

What the hell? How does that even happen? You only have to remember 8 teams! The NFL has 32 teams and it seems to be doing a better job at remembering they exist, or at least remembering which teams do and do not exist.

"Are you sure there's seven teams, Bill? Because I keep coming up with six."

"Did you remember to count the Riders?"

"Oh, right! There's seven."

It's not a mistake. The pass allows access to the hospitality rooms of each participating team (i.e. Saskatchewan has "Riderville", Hamilton's is "TigerTown", etc.). Each room promotes their city/culture and host parties during the week. The Schooners are fans from Atlantic Canada that attend the Grey Cup every year and have their own room.

The reason Edmonton isn't listed is because the "Spirit of Edmonton" room is always free (though due to space limitations in Regina, they haven't been able to secure a place yet). Montreal might not be listed because they aren't going to be a host (they didn't in 2009) or can't find space either.

Why is the Edmonton room free?

I'm not sure of the exact reason but it has been that way since the first one in 1973. It's just meant to be a big party/get-together for CFL fans, and not a moneymaker for those running it.

Saved me from typing all that out myself.
