In this CFL off-season, after some pretty good bursts of energy, you can see why in mid-March the Romans killed Julius Caesar.
The dust has mostly settled from CFL free agency with a few interesting people remaining, but now the focus is shifting to the CFL Week in Winnipeg March 22-25 which will include the CFL Combine March 24-25.
If the CFL wanted to get back into the spotlight in the off-season then so far, so good.
The memo from Commissioner Randy Ambrosie to create more interest in the CFL in the off-season appears to be having an impact.
The news Monday from Riderville was a bit like Christmas in January – the Riders announced they signed Duron Carter to a year contract and he was talking about his best chance to win the Grey Cup was going to come in Saskatchewan.
Well it seems CFL teams definitely got the message from Commissioner Randy Ambrosie to put some thought into making the off-season interesting for fans and sports observers.
