The CFL has a lot of great work to expand the league and increase exposure both in Canada and the United States. Two things will kill the league and if you have not addressed it will be a detriment to the CFL. First off, in a quarterback driven game, ensuring…

Monday was the official RedBlacks expansion draft that saw the new franchise out of Ottawa pick 3 players from every team. Calgary, given their depth, was slated to lose some key players. Unfortunately, you can’t protect everyone, albeit the team was slated to only lose one import player. The question…

Check out Al Cameron’s piece of Lewis post-game thoughts on the Montreal defence reposted here for maximum exposure. “I don’t know about the legality of the defence they’re running,” he began. “When you send a defensive end out just to hit me and push me in the back and push…

The storybook ending for the likes of Doug Brown, playing perhaps his last game as a Bomber, didn’t pan out as he’d like it. On the other side of the ball DE Brent Johnson may have played his last game, and if that’s the case he’ll go out a Grey…

The CFL made the announcement today: http://www.cfl.ca/article/cfl-introduces-qb-wireless-headsets. How it works is pretty interesting. It’s…

The cool thing about the CFL that you do’nt find in any other professional league is the input fans get to impact rules. The CFL last year asked fans to offer suggestions on various aspects like kick off returns, safeties, and more. This year they are going to do the…
