It is unlikely that there has been a busier off-season in CFL history than this one right now.

The ongoing pandemic is threatening the 2020 CFL season. CFL games may restart in September but, according to league commissioner Randy Ambrosie, this is the best-case scenario. Until then, unfortunately, CFL fans will be left with little more than reruns and football games at the All Jackpots Casino. News has recently emerged about a potential […]
