IF ottawa comes back they should have to put up a 40 million dollar bond as a play guarantee. They get 5 million back every year that they complete a season.

I just hope they don't call them the Roughriders or name them after an existing team. Been there....

buy an old air craft carrier, build the stadium on it and have it move from main city to main city and they can all share the team.

That Baltimore team was VERY successful. They had great fans, great attendance. There is still a core group of Stallion fans that travel to the Grey Cup game every year.

You gotta love their spirit in Halifax. They have a team name, logo, cheerleaders, and they host the best party during Grey Cup week, and they don't even have a team! They deserve a team more than Ottawa, but unfortunately they don't have a decent park to play in. I believe it will happen sooner or later. If not Halifax/Dartmouth, then Moncton .. but maybe both! NS has a pop of 1 million in a relatively condensed area, and the Halifax/Dartmouth area is over a half mil I believe. They should have no problem supporting a team there.

Go Schooners!!!! They have a facebook group, by the way. I encourage you to join.

A Grey Cup game in Halifax would be so awesome.
