Should the Cfl Move to 4 Downs? How Can They Better Market Their League? Jason Gregor Discusses

Are Randy Ambrosie and Genius Sports going to blow up the CFL game and move to 4 downs? What OTHER options should the league look at an exercise in an attempt to grow the game and increase their fanbase? We bring on TSN 1260’s Jason Gregor to discuss the recent news involving commissioner Ambrosie reaching out to various team across the league expressing an interest to move the Canadian game to a 4-down format similar to the NFL or XFL. Why or why not is that a good idea? Jason Gregor shares his thoughts on why a “Drive to Survive” type show is a better option for the league’s marketing efforts moving forward through 2022 and beyond.

We also catch up with BC Lions Offensive Lineman Andrew Peirson and get his thoughts on the CFL 2022 offseason and the changes he and the team and making moving into training campns in just a few months. We talk Nathan Rourke, Henry Burris and more!

    Going to four downs would increase scoring somewhat, which would be a good thing considering how low the scores have been in recent years. All the rest of the rules, including 12 men and motion in the backfield, should be preserved.
