This won't happen, though. Fan backlash would be unreal.
I admit I don't watch the CFL at all, but I would think this would favor the ground game-- as RBs would have more room to maneuver and defenders would have to cover more area.

I can definitely see how defenses would be adversely affected-- with the additional yards, the defense would now be responsible for covering a larger area. With the way defenders cannot even touch receivers, defensive play would be pushed to the back burner even more.

Bigger field spells end for zone defense.
