The CFL needs to improve scheduling
I would like to see the CFL turn to something similar to the American scheduling model, in which pro teams play on specified days and amateur football would no longer see itself in competition with the pros.
Case in point: The University Regina Rams — a high-calibre program that has sent athletes to the CFL and NFL — had a playoff game Nov. 4 that was basically forgotten in light of the Saskatchewan Roughriders’ game against the Edmonton Eskimos.
Amateur football provides the Canadian lifeblood to the CFL and deserves better. Gary Harle, Regina.
