CFL: 11 reasons Commissioner Randy Ambrosie should resign
Last year, the Canadian Football League (CFL) season was forcefully cancelled due to the impact of COVID-19 but a year after, the pressure is mounting on CFL Commissioner Randy Ambrosie to turn the fortunes of the league around.
CFL fans have been very vocal about the lack of communication or decisive plans towards the start of the new 2021 season. In November 2020, the CFL announced the full game schedule for the league in 2021 and reinstated its commitment to sticking to it. However, it’s a few weeks to the proposed start of the new season and fans are yet to see any sort of progressive action, asides from the continuous streams of optimism being shown by Ambrosie.
According to reports, the CFL and XFL are reportedly working on an “alignment” but the benefits of this collaboration are still left to be seen. It is quite clear that Commissioner Ambrosie is not the man to lead the CFL back to the top and turnaround its fortunes. Here are some reasons that show Commissioner Ambrosie is quite incompetent and needs to tender an immediate resignation rather than rolling the dice by entering a partnership with the XFL.Are you frustrated or mystified by the Canadian Football League's apparent inability to restart during the pandemic, despite evidence of how other professional leagues across North America have found a way? Do you find a contemplated merger between the CFL and the American-based XFL troubling? Are there alternatives to a partnership with the XFL that would lead to the veritable destruction of Canada's culturally unique football identity?
