Mark’s CFL Week is well underway at Evraz Place, and if Day 1 is any indication, it is a hit.
“This is just what we envisioned”, a happy Jeffrey Orridge told 620 CKRM’s Rod Pedersen during Tuesday’s “Sportscage”. “The idea is not only to be able to showcase our stars of today, but our legends and our up and coming stars at the combine.”
Orridge says seeing the players interact with the fans and themselves while marketing the league not only gives the event a mini-Grey Cup feel for fans, but unprecendented access to players in an informal setting where they can tell their stories without a game on the horizon.
While a lot of work is being done at Evraz Place, the rules committee is gathered at a Regina hotel to discuss any possible rule changes.
Orridge says that committee is looking at ways to help the flow of the game and how can it do so more smoothly to improve the game to make it better for the fans with an enhanced game experience.
CFL Week will continue with several activities going on until Sunday.
One of those events on Wednesday is finding out who will be the inductees for the 2017 Canadian Football Hall of Fame.
