Regardless of whether you prefer the American or Canadian game, the best players are in the NFL. A segment of people will always gravitate to the NFL for that reason.

I'm not trying to knock the CFL, as I am a fan myself, but I think it's a tough road ahead. I'm also not trying to blame immigrants for any struggles in the league, but realistically, it is part of the equation.
I agree, but I am glad they are not just sticking their heads in the sand and trying to take a pro-active approach. It is also keeping the CFL relevant and in the news in the off season which is good
