"The rumour making the rounds is if UNB brings in a team, UPEI would follow, particularly with a new facility being built to accommodate the Canada Games being played there this summer.The obvious joke: It would be great to see another team or two down East -- where else in Canada can Ontario kids go to play football?
"UNB has its new turf field at Chapman replete with football markings. With the considerable upstart cost, it would have to be a Laval-type situation where a group outside of the school would finance the team.
"Alumni types tell me there's such a group in place. And that once a team becomes reality, money won't be a problem." -- Fredericton Daily Gleaner, Oct. 29
