If I remember though, Calgary's owners as well as Toronto's BC's were favorable to selling. I'll see if I can find anything.

The original plan was for Vince to just buy the argo's and they were all over that. However the debate between the owners was that Vince would wreck the Canadian game.

At the time of the preliminary inquiry of buying the league, the CFL was in terrible shape financially as well.

I googled for it but all I found was someone mentioning it in a reddit thread. In any case I doubt the CFL would exist anymore if Vince got a hold of it.

I'm in stitches about the stories of Lou Holtz insulting guys at practices, especially Pat Tyrell.
I liked how they kept changing his position on the onscreen description as he was going over the stories of how Holtz kept moving him around

Today the second episode of the ESPN 30 For 30 Podcast series was released and it was another interesting episode. Highly recommend it for anyone who's a fan of the documentaries or podcasts in general.
