Look no further than the XFL showing the review booth to know that information and transparency is what fans want.
I don't know, I really have no issue with teams not releasing salaries. I read the article on 3DownNation and thought it was way overblown.
Just my opinion though.
A 3DN article overblown?? Say it aint' so!!
I agree with you. People speculate about how any team is fitting salary under the cap all the time. There's gonna be plenty of speculation about the Cats after all the FA signings. I really doubt there would be more if people had exact numbers to play with. The main difference between CFL & NFL over the past 30 years, apart from the $, has been the hype which, let's face it, is directly tied to the $. It's one of the things I can't stand the most about the NFL. I watched some of the Super Bowl this year & the commercials were f*cking ridiculous. Oh, not the content, although people going nuts for commercials is stupid af imo. It was the number of commercials. Couldn't help but compare it to the 1 or 2 quick spots we usually get before getting back to the game.
Our league has always done best when we embrace our quirkiness, ie Our Balls are Bigger, etc. That's the kind of marketing we need.
Now, I didn't watch any of the XFL, but showing the replay booth is an idea I'm in favour of for our league.
