Default CFL

I know it's not NFL, but I don't see any other areas for CFL talk.

Does anyone else watch CFL ball? If so, thoughts on the Grey Cup this year?

I like watching the CFL, but I don't know a lot about the players or the teams.

Post Re: Cfl

Don't watch as much as I used to... I watched a lot in the 70's. I usually watch a bit at the start of the year before the NFL season starts. I am looking forward to Ottawa getting a team again, now that all the court challenges are out of the way (the stadium is close to downtown & the people who live there don't like it).

I just saw bits of the Grey Cup game this year; we had people over who aren't football fans... plus the game was a blowout.

Awful Grey Cup matchup this year. The Western final between BC and Calgary was far better.

At least they ponied up the cash and got a couple of big names to play the halftime show - which might help the game get some younger fans - even if the guys in the stadium weren't too hot on hearing Bieber.

Well the Grey Cup was terrible for me as a Stamps fan! Like Mattiuek said, the Western Final was far more entertaining.

The CFL is a pretty good league. In recent years it has had some very good players who have gone on to do well in the NFL, most notably Cameron Wake. NFL teams are watching for players here, which makes it an attractive place to play for a player who still wants to make the NFL.

It is a very different game though as everything is geared towards offense, such as field size, scoring system, only needing one foot in bounds as a receiver etc. It makes for an entertaining game.

It was terrible! I still upset the Al's lost to the Argo's >.< But it kind of seemed like a a story you would read in a book; 100th Cup, the team with the most titles hosting the game, blah blah blah.
