CFL NEWS & NOTES: BOARD OF GOVERNORS SET TO CONVENE
Published November 28, 1995
When the CFL Board of Governors meets Wednesday in Toronto, owners are expected to discuss the location of teams, salary caps, and the Canadian content rules for teams in Canada. Jeff Dickins of the HAMILTON SPECTATOR says to expect the C$2.5M salary cap to remain in place, look for the ratio limit to "drag on and not be settled," watch for the Birmingham Barracudas to suspend operations and Shreveport Pirates to "resurface" in Norfolk. In personnel news, CFL VP of Communications Mike Murray resigned yesterday, and Dickins adds CFL Events Manager Maggie Hermant will "depart shortly" (HAMILTON SPECTATOR, 11/28). In Toronto, Gary Picknell lists his ten ways to save the CFL. No. 1 is to buy out Commissioner Larry Smith's contract, since "his reign has been a disaster." Picknell also argues to "let the U.S. teams go their own way if they want," adding the CFL is being "brought down" by Las Vegas and Shreveport "fiascos" (TORONTO SUN, 11/28). A BUSINESS WEEK report notes the CFL's "ambitious drive into the U.S. seems to be coming to grief, and a National Football League expansion into the Toronto market would threaten the league's existence" (William Symonds, BUSINESS WEEK, 12/4).
