    Well, at least the Grey Cup date hasn’t been moved up.

    • More Cowbell // December 14, 2017 at 3:42 pm //

      Good luck sitting in Commonwealth Stadium at the end of November.
      And paying premium prices for the privilege to freeze your butt off!

  2. Dave in Edmonton // December 14, 2017 at 3:08 pm //

    Stamps on the downfall. Can’t wait to watch them CHOKE in the regular season this time around.

    • stomp into 2018 // December 14, 2017 at 5:03 pm //

      Dave
      If the expectation is Calgary falling how can it be a CHOKE when we do? —GOTHCA!

  3. Blackhawk89 // December 14, 2017 at 3:38 pm //

    Rider fans no doubt will find something to complain about…

  4. Good to see only ONE team with a Sunday game after the NFL season starts.
    Canada Day is on Sunday but no games scheduled?
    The Argos get the Ticats twice at home so the Ticats fans will boost the Argo attendance and maybe they will make it past 14k average in 2018

    • I believe that TSN has made the call that they do not want to broadcast CFL games on Sunday, they want the NFL games which bring in the ad revenue.
      The Als have no choice they can not play at the University stadium on Saturdays in the fall

      • No NFL games in July so why not play on Canada Day? Or TSN thinks every sports fan in the nation will be watching the Blue Jays on Sportsnet… stupid.

  5. The Riders 1st 6 games look similar to Edmonton’s schedule last season. 6/8 of their win streak at the start of the season were against Eastern teams. Riders start off with 6 Eastern teams. The bi in the last week of the season isn’t that great… unless they’re hosting the semifinal, then it would be okay.

  6. Toronto only plays 1 exhibition game?

  7. stomp into 2018 // December 14, 2017 at 10:37 pm //

    So I take it MLS as already released their schedule?

  8. Only 1 preseason for Ottawa as well.

    • BleedzGreen // December 15, 2017 at 2:41 pm //

      From the RedBlacks’ website:

      “Pre-season play will open Thursday, May 31 for the REDBLACKS when they host the Alouettes at TD Place before visiting the Toronto Argonauts the following week.”

      Again, likely related to the MLS schedule.

  9. The 13th Rider // December 16, 2017 at 12:43 pm //

    Toronto at Saskatchewan in WEEK ONE…umh this must really irk donkey land, I am wondering what will happen on 3 Down Nation if the Riders beat Toronto, isn’t this traditionally the CFL returning Grey Cup game in week 1? Or is it Canada Day?

  10. DoubleBlue1873 // December 16, 2017 at 6:17 pm //

    Not sure NFL games necessarily bring more revenue as ratings are similar, but why force viewers to choose when you can spread it out and allow them to watch both? TSN’s calculus makes perfect sense on that basis. CFL playoffs will always be on Sundays as those ratings leave the NFL in the dust.
