Trestman is genius and he can't be compared with anyone out there. He changed football up here and could do it down there. The CFL has grown by leaps and bounds and is not that far off the NFL, of course it will never rival with it. 1200 players get cut every year form the NFL camps and that does not mean they are all useless. And with a new deal with TSN for about 250m for 5 years is a 1st for the league and will help raise the salary cap. Let say if troy smith happens to replace A.C in montrteal and becomes a great CFL QB, he will be making 1/2 mil per season, not to bad. And with updates to stadiums in BC, Edmonton, montreal, new one in winnipeg, new one in hamilton next year also a new one in ottawa next year. And the rest are in planning stages. Things are looking good for the old girl. Just have to get Toronto out of the sky dome.. But I will predict if they buy into trestman things are going to get interesting and alot of wins for the bears.
