The CFL needs to im­prove sched­ul­ing

Regina Leader-Post - - SPORTS -

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.
