CFL SEARCHING TO GET NORTHERN EXPOSURE IN THE UNITED STATES
Published May 19, 1998
Two years after the CFL's "failed expansion" into the U.S., it "appears no games will be televised south of the border," as there is no U.S. TV contract in place and "nothing imminent," according to Perry Lefko of the TORONTO SUN. The CFL had been talking to Fox, but CFL Chair John Tory said that the league is "finding it difficult to agree on acceptable terms with (a) U.S. network." Tory: "I'm not going to do a bad deal just to get coverage in the United States because frankly it's more important that we get good coverage in Canada." CFL games aired in the U.S. were seen mostly on a tape-delay basis on ESPN2 (TORONTO SUN, 5/19).
