Last time the Grey Cup in Montreal, the attendance was 66 308, higher than any Grey Cup Game not in the Olympic Stadium. In fact, with the Olympic Stadium having so much capacity, I am wondering why the Grey Cup Game is not in Montreal more often.

Because the last time I saw the Olympic Stadium in Montreal it was nearly condemned.

Literally had concrete falling from the top.

I know they have tried to revive the thing by throwing more money into it...just don't know how many times I'd want to test the strength of the structure before some type of mishap occurs.

The CFL almost lost me as a fan a few years ago when they brought in that stupid illegal contact on a receiver penalty. That first year with it you had games were both quarterbacks combined would miss a total of 5 passes the entire game. It was glorified touch football. Only used half of my season tickets that year because the game was garbage and gave them up after that season. It has slowly been getting better. Maybe this year it will be back to normal as coaches cant go fishing for it anymore. Should speed up the game.

If you don't have SiriusXM, and want to hear local broadcasts, all are available on the local radio station's website. The stations for each team in 2018 are:

BC Lions – TSN 1040/1410
Toronto Argonauts – TSN1050
Edmonton Eskimos – 630 CHED
Hamilton Tiger-Cats – TSN 1150
Calgary Stampeders – News Talk 770
Montreal Alouettes – TSN 690, 800 CJAD, 98,5 FM
Saskatchewan Roughriders – 620 CKRM
Ottawa REDBLACKS – TSN 1200
Winnipeg Blue Bombers – 680 CJOB

I had no issue pulling up games last season. All TSN/Bell owned stations are also available on the iheartradio app - but can be accessed without it.

The Ref Cam looks awkward for the Ref's to wear. It looks like the refs are wearing a Donald Duck hat with a duck bill from Disney World painted black. I wonder how much it weighs?

I like the live mics - and the non-stop apologies from the announcer teams "we apologize for the language"...As a subscriber only service, can't TSN just make a blanket statement after a commercial break that foul language may be heard during the game?

Also listed as being on TSN4k, although the lack of mention it it in the release makes me question if it'll actually be filmed in 4k or not.

They mentioned 4K in one press release at the beginning and that was it. I posted the link to the TSN 4K schedule at the beginning of the season and all the CFL games were 4K. I checked again and all current games are 4K, including the Grey Cup. They just aren't over-hyping it.
