Nobody seems very excited about the Rouge/Noir. Are there no CFL fans in Ottawa anymore?

All I know is they got some real good players. Shologan has been great in Green and White. There are not many defensive Canadian starters in the league and it looks like Ottawa selected 3. Pottinger, Fraser and Shologan. They will be competitive.

The online fanbase in Ottawa and around the Ottawa Football Club is private.

OSEG knows this, and contacts us at times.

Having said that, there is great excitement, given that some 11,000 ST have been sold so far, and now the push is on the Gatineau side, where the Alouettes traditionally held sway.

This time around it's going to work in Ottawa, better expansion draft to give the RedBlacks a running start oppose to what the Renegades had to pick from, solid local ownership and a revamped stadium. I cant wait to see them on the field.

Are you for serious?

Take a look at this...

East Attendance 2014 as of August 13th

Team, # of games played, total on season, average
Ottawa RedBlacks (2) 48,629 = 24,315/game
Montreal Alouettes (4) 81,112 = 20,278/game
Toronto Argonauts (3) 51,966 = 17,322/game
Hamilton Ti-Cats (2) 13,000 = 6,500/game

Right now it's easier to get a ticket to Hamilton's 6,500 stadium than Ottawa's 24,000+ stadium
Here's to our up coming 3rd sell out! Whooo! :beer:

the last 3 games were announced as sellouts yet the number keeps dropping bit by bit.

game 1: 24,326

game 2: 24,303

game 3: 24,291

I guess 24,000 is like the cutoff point or something.

No, there's a few singles here and there. When only single tickets are available, it's still considered sold out.
Looks like there's no tickets left, and a friend of mine tried to get a pair of tickets to Montreal next month and there's only singles left

I'll be at that Montreal game. Redblacks couldn't pick a better time to string their first ever 2 game winning streak.

Where are you parking? You're welcome to come join our tailgate. In fact, a bunch of Montreal fans, I know and invited, are coming and tailgating right beside us
