CFL cancels season after potential exposure to Winnipeg

WINNIPEG – Commissioner Randy Ambrosie announced that there will be no 2020 Canadian Football Season stating that the risk is too high for players being exposed to Winnipeg.

“The safety of our players and the public comes first,” said a morose Ambrosie. “We consulted our team doctors and epidemiologists, and they advised against anyone playing football or even breathing within 2 meters of Winnipeg.

This is not worth the risk,” added the Commissioner.

Biosafety experts who surveyed the city were initially optimistic that Winnipeg was a hospitable place to host the season, but felt there was not enough adequate protection from the Manitoba capital after losing a team member inside the dystopian-like pedestrian walkway. Another was lost trying to cross at Portage and Main.

“The last thing we want is a serious outbreak of Winnipeg throughout Canada,” explained Saskatchewan Roughriders head coach Craig Dickenson. “It would be a nightmare situation where one or more of our talented players ends up living there.”
