  1. Man, it must be a slow news day. If you’ve got to put “Jamie Dukes” comments on your site. I thought he was VY’s agent. The NFL network needs a lot of help.

  2. “If the Bills or another team were to move to Toronto, would it kill the CFL?”

    No. But would the Bills move to Toronto kill Buffalo? Maybe.

  3. “If the Bills or another team were to move to Toronto, would it kill the CFL?”

    The author does make some good points — granted, I don’t know anything about the political landscape in Toronto or the current “health” of the CFL in general, so I’ll have to take him at his word — but he does seem to draw some reasonable conclusions.

    I would think that the CFL would be discreetly making inquiries to CBS, FOX, and NBC about getting their games aired in the U.S. in the event that the NFL season is compromised. I’ll wager that many of us will watch football of a different flavor, if the choice is that or no football. The NFL labor situation could be a opportunity to pick up some fan interest “south of the border.”

    I don’t know what the broadcast contracts look like between the NFL and the networks, but even if there is some kind of clause stating that the networks can’t air a “competing product,” wouldn’t that be nullified if there is no NFL “Product” to compete with?
