LOGOS ON CFL JERSEYS COMING SOON?

According to CFL owners, Larry Ryckman (Calgary) and Bill Comrie (B.C.), the league is "exploring selling commercial sponsorship on uniforms." Ryckman: "You will see significant corporate sponsorship deals. For example, Beatrice sponsors our training camp and Beatrice has our jersey rights. This (uniforms) is the logical next step. I would support it, as long as its not garish." CFL star Doug Flutie: "I wouldn't like it at all. You put Beatrice on the Jersey and then they'll want you to put K-Mart on the pants. Next thing you know you look like a race-car driver. Right now we have the logo (Dodge Trucks) on our field. I don't even like that" (SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 11/16).
