Bush League CFL


David Braley has been announced as the new owner of the Toronto Argonauts.  David Braley already owns a CFL team, the British Columbia Lions.  David Braley gets to keep both the Lions and the Argos.

In an eight team league, one man owns 25% of the teams.  The fact that one man can own more than one team in the same league amazes me.  I'm sure there's no other league on the planet that would allow such a thing.  Can you imagine MLSE buying a second NHL team, or Rogers owning a second MLB team?

It can't happen because there are strict rules against it.  And for good reason.  The integrity of the game must be preserved and even the implication of impropriety is unacceptable.

No wonder my family and friends think the CFL is bush league.
