    Whine Grey Cup Programs

    Don't know if anybody else noticed or even cared but this year was the first year the CFL did not have a Grey Cup program sold at the game.
    Ticked me off as I have every one of them from the early 50's to 2017.
    They are a nice collectable and go nice with the ticket stub.
    I emailed the CFL about it but as usual get know reply

    Maybe sales have been down in the past few years and not worth making?

    Maybe is it the sign of the times and they are going the way of the newspaper? Everything is app or digital now.

    From the lack of discussion, I'm guessing not a lot of people care.

    I care, but I also know that it’s all about the bottom line and they’d rather sell items they can garner a larger profit from.

    I’ve got every Esks Grey Cup program since 1952 to now plus the ones from GCs in town. Even an Edmonton Sun insert would have been nice. Shame. Eventually they won’t print media guides, pocket schedules and the like. On the plus side, it will give me more room in my collection lol

    If I had been able to go to the game, I would have definitely gotten one (If they had them). But then I am not part of the Snowflake Generation.

    I looked for them at the game, but didn't see any. Apparently it wasn't due to my age-related fading eyesight.
    GO ESKS GO!

    There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

    Maybe she's correcting spelling. It's Townshend, though his name is often misspelled. As is Daltrey's.
