CFL TO GET NAME CHANGE OR NOT? COULD HAPPEN THIS WEEK
Published December 6, 1994
CFL Sacramento Gold-Miners Owner Fred Anderson, the U.S. owner who originally offered the idea of changing the name of the Canadian Football League, is "now having second thoughts." Anderson said he now believes that "we should keep the word Canadian in the name in some form," adding that he thinks it would be "a major mistake if we dropped the word Canadian completely." The CFL league meetings take place this week in Baltimore, and although the league name is not formally on the agenda, the subject was to be discussed (Marty York, Toronto GLOBE & MAIL, 12/6).
