    I just thought I'd post this video to let everyone know that real football is not just relagated to the NFL....its a bit over the top but its a cool video


    You can watch the game on Nov 29th on TSN
    Montreal Alouettes VS the Rough riders
  2. Wow, I didn't know the CFL has such heritage...How about some stats?
    I love the old-time videos.

    Thanks for this.

    Hey, is that Klein there on the right, at the 1:48 mark on the video?

    There are some aspects of the CFL that I would love to see in the NFL, most notably having 2 men in motion at the same time. The play is wide open and exciting to watch. There have been a number of NFL stars who either started or ended their careers in the CFL (Warren Moon). I would equate the level of play to that of our top D-1 NCAA teams.

    CFL is the proving grounds for the NFL.

    Now the Extreme Football League was silly.

    I love watching Canadian football, and I wish the NFL would adopt some of the Canadian rules, particularly the shorter game clock and only getting 3 downs instead of 4. It makes for a much faster-paced game.
  11. I personally dislike NFL and all forms of Professional Football.
    I prefer NCAA. Those Players/Coaches are so much more intuitive and experimental!

    You didn't think Belichik going for it on 4th and 2 was "intuitive and experimental"?

    I hope Belichik is experimental on Monday Night!!

    I can't wait to see how big of a stick he has shoved up his .... on Monday Night.

    For some strange reason the (former?) dictator of North Korea,Kim Jong Il, loved watching the Saskatchewan roughriders.His countryfolk ate tree bark as he dined on steak watching Canadian football in the company of blonde Swedish beauties.
    OK back to the grey cup game.
    The odds are against the riders,having lost to the Als twice this year.
    But one thing's fer sher ,it will be a wicked game.
    I urge you to tune in and watch 6:30 PM on TSN

    I think Chicago has a CFL team. Great rookie there named Johnny Knox. Looking forward to seeing him in the NFL some day.
