Working agreements, loans and free agents

Hockey Fan: Another factor to deal with is how you find the players. Players from college and junior graduate each year and only some are drafted.

Too much Wings and other compeititon and bad facility

I went to some games last year, and some this year. It is not bad hockey, there are just too many other teams (wings, junior, college) in the area for them to make it.

I like the CFL just the way it is folks

Folks: This is my first posting on the board, but being in Detroit I see my share of CFL games through the local CBC affiliate in Windsor. I say keep the league and style of play just the way it is.
