Not that I want to turn this into a CFL debate. The renegades/rough riders drew close to 13,000-15,000 fans every game even though the team was abysmal and the ownership/management was horrid. That 13,000-15,000 fans that showed up no matter what. When (not if) a CFL franchise returns to Ottawa and it has ownership that cares and management that know what they're doing people come back and support the team and will easily average 20,000 fans a game. I there is nothing better than watching football on a warm summer evening at Frank Clair. If you've never had the pleasure you don't know what you're missing.

As for baseball another kettle of fish. This whole country seems to have lost it's taste for baseball. There used to be quite a few AAA teams in Canada they are all gone now, the Lynx were the last to leave. I hope this franchise suceeds, but don't hold out much hope.
