Going to the Hamilton Ti-Cats/Toronto Argos exhibition game this weekend in Halifax. Should be great, hopefully one step closer to getting an expansion team out East!
One thing I really like about the CFL is most of the players are truly lunch-bucket guys. I think the average salary is in the range of 30-40K a year, so these guys have to make money other ways - by endorsements, public appearances and -yes- other off-season jobs.
Most of the guys are actually playing for the love of the game. That's what I can't stand about the NFL, TO, Javon Walker and all of those holdouts complaining about there salaries (Yeah Ty Law, I find it hard to eat on 8 mill a year too). And the worst thing is their greed is making it impossible for the average Joe to afford game tickets.
DEFINTIELY not a problem in the CFL!
