The moving self-imposed deadline feels disingenuous. If they (CFL and feds) are truly doing everything they can to make something work, then I do appreciate it and hope that the date-bumping is due to progress being made. Problem with that is that it's an extremely optimistic outlook and there's no real reason to think that is the reality. And if that's the case, please put us out of our misery ASAP.

The Jets' super early elimination last night put a gaping hole in my heart and instantly reminded me that, "oh yeah, it's August and there's no Bomber ball". Just a pile-on of the misery that is 2020.

With each passing day of nothing, the less likely a 2020 season gets. I've pretty much resigned myself to the fact there won't be any CFL in this pile of garbage that is 2020.

No drought about it.
Still can't fix stupid. And you apparently can't quarantine, it either.

Well into August and still nothing...

I even read that the NFL is looking at a possible 8 game season.

Green Bay announces no fans at first two home games...

Sad state of affairs...

Nothing much we can do but stay safe and hope for some football

I don't know all you negative nancies... from the little we're hearing and seeing, I'm optimistic!  You think Ambrosie wants his legacy to be that he presided over the only cancelled season in a zillion years?  Or worse, let the CFL fold completely?  Ambrosie may be a lot of things, but I have no doubt that he's a true, massive CFL fan to his very core.  I think they're working their tails off trying to get this done... give them a chance.

The players rejected the CFL's offer. The gov't rejected the leagues financial demands.  The suggested season start of Oct 6 is absurd as well.  Nothing indicates the 2 weeks self isolation before travel has started or that travel across the border is approved.  Be optimistic if you want.

Nothing we've heard suggests anybody is working their tails off for an agreement. It's August 8.
