Default Should the CFL move in the Spring?

I think it should. Right now Season starts in July ends in November. My idea they should Start 1st week of May then playoffs and grey cup in September. So they can allow it to return to America and NFL may allow teams in Canada.It would be good business for both leagues and both countries.

You have absolutely no idea what you're talking about. Canada does not want the NFL anywhere near the CFL.

The AFL and NFL have already merged. We see that with teams like the Patriots, Colts, Saints, Packers, and Panthers.

Two reasons. First off, there is a large portion of the Toronto population (sports minded especially) that identifies more with American culture (sports, clothes, cuisine, etc,) than they do with Canadian culture. That is not to say that Canadian culture is completely unique, but the American influence can be found to the ninth degree in Hogtown.
As such, there has been a taste for having an NFL team - expansion or relocated - to Toronto, by some business *ahem* leaders and sports fans living in or near Toronto.

Secondly, Buffalo's economic downturn (the last 20 or so years), has put the fear into Bills ownership and city officials, that a new team in Toronto would possibly be the foot on the neck of the Bills and their city (take fans from the Bills, as well as lure other NFL tourists away from attending Bills games : hence, the Bills playing games in Toronto).
Toronto also happens to be the fifth largest city in North America, and money is like magnetism, it always goes to, and attracts still more money, to a larger concentrated mass. Thus, until the NFL can figure what to do, it will keep a log on the fire, so to speak, when it comes to Toronto -either as a leverage tactic to extract concessions out of N.Y state, or as a means of appealing to Toronto business to believe their positive spin of what a team would do economically to the city and province.

CFL should move in the Spring. Ill even bet you NBC,CBS or even ESPN would televises their games in the US. Just like CBC and TSN televises the NFL
