I wouldn't have thought less of Lulay or Wally if they went for it, but it was an exciting game, nonetheless.

What an awesome game, beats the NFL

To support a CFL team here, you'd need almost 10% of the population of the Island coming to Victoria for the games. You can't rely on mainlanders as they can't get back from the game without staying overnight. The latter is a big part of the Riders' success; people drive to Regina from all over the province. Did I also mention that there isn't an appropriate stadium, either?
However, I'd love to see Quebec City (la belle province is football crazy) and Halifax brought in. I don't know if the Maritimes could pull it off, though. How would you market it to appeal to NB *and* NS?.. not to mention PEI and NFLD. But a return of the Bombers to the West and the addition of QC and Halifax to the East looks great. Frankly, revive Ottawa and we only need one of QC or Halifax to get two 5-team divisions.
