CFL News in 1984[edit]

The CFL granted a conditional expansion team to the city of Halifax, the team was named the Atlantic Schooners. The franchise were supposed to begin play in 1984. However, before the season started, ownership couldn't secure and provide the financing for a new stadium. Without a stadium in place, the Schooners folded without playing a single game in the CFL.

Calgary native, Douglas H. Mitchell, Q.C. became the sixth CFL Commissioner in history on Friday, June 1.

In the fall, the CFL conducted a market research study with the fans in CFL cities.

The CFL, eliminated territorial exemptions, which allowed the 1985 Canadian College Draft to be more open – allowing teams to draft players from different regions.
