We’re talking new USFL TV deals, Grey Cup fallout, the CFL 2022 schedule and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers’ celebration on this week’s episode of The Markcast. Tom Mayenknecht of The Sport Market (@TheSportMarket), Ed Tait of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Tim Baines of the Ottawa Sun all make return appearances!
The 2022 CFL schedule is here! We break down the latest with CFL Hall of Fame reporter Ed Tait of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. We also get Ed’s thoughts on the Grey Cup championship game, the Blue Bombers celebration party and what the team needs to do to “three-peat” in 2023.
Tim Baines of the Ottawa Sun stops by to share his thoughts on the Grey Cup 2021 festival, thoughts on the “State of the CFL” and the latest on Trevor Harris and Vernon Adams Jr. Tim talks about the future of the CFL, potential rule changes and what needs to be done (or definitely not done) in attempts to grow the CFL game in the off-season.
Tom Mayenknecht of The Sport Market (@TheSportMarket) then makes a return appearance to give his thoughts on Randy Ambrosie’s recent “State of the CFL” address and newly announced deal with Genius Sports. What’s the CFL’s game plan moving forward and is it enough to offset the recent below expected ratings for the 2021 Grey Cup game.
The USFL is also in the news with the “official” announcement of the FOX and NBC TV deals to carry the 2021 USFL games on FOX, NBC, USA Network and Peacock. Is there enough time to build anticipation for the 2021 USFL kickoff in April? Why would FOX want to give NBC content for their network? We answer these questions and more.
We’re launching another giveaway as we enter the CFL off-season and presumed USFL pre-season, so people subscribe to help up grow our channel! Plus we catch up on Taylor Heinicke and PJ Walker, run down the latest CFL news entering the first week of the off-season and more.
