We love the CFL, mostly because it gives us a taste of football during an arid sports summer. Here’s former NFL return master Brandon Banks quenching our thirst with a 121-yard missed field goal return. Yahoo!
Duron Carter aimed for the football version of a Gordie Howe hat trick after the former Ohio State Buckeye (and, briefly, Indianapolis Colt) caught a touchdown pass for the Alouettes before knocking down an Ottawa coach and starting a brawl that resulted in a very Canadian string of penalties.
Toronto Argonauts defensive back Jermaine Gabriel left the field strapped to a cart after suffering an apparent head or neck injury while trying to make a routine tackle of former NFL return specialist Brandon Banks, who now plays for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.
The Toronto Argonauts kicked off the 2016 CFL season by hosting the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. During the game, a pair of Idiots On The Field managed to run around for a good while before anyone dealt with them.
The Edmonton Eskimos defeated the Ottawa Redblacks 26-20 Sunday and won their first Grey Cup since 2005. Here’s where we’d say you wasted your time watching another week of regular-season NFL, but the 4 p.m. Steelers-Seahawks game was pretty damn good. The Grey Cup was good, too.
In what’s probably the most Canadian sentence I will ever write, the Edmonton Eskimos have successfully lobbied the Canadian Football League to restrict the Ottawa Redblacks from bringing along the loggersports team that traditionally saws off a celebratory log slice after touchdowns. The Grey Cup takes place this…
The Grey Cup is Sunday, and one of the enduring traditions of the CFL championship is the head coaches being asked on whether they believe their players should have sex before the game. Ottawa’s Rick Campbell couldn’t help give a very coachspeak answer.
The Edmonton Eskimos and Calgary Stampeders played a football game Monday, but who cares about that. Check out the jackrabbit that jumped on the field while Edmonton’s Kendial Lawrence returned a kick.
Canada’s been leaving us some crappy gifts lately, but here’s something from tonight’s Toronto-Hamilton game that might perk your ears up: an onside punt touchdown, unique to the Canadian game and something we strongly encourage Roger Goodell to unilaterally write into American Football’s rules.
It’s always big news in these parts when a Fat Guy scores a touchdown, and it happened tonight in the CFL as Ottawa defensive lineman Zack Evans came away with a ball out of Edmonton’s QB Matt Nichols’s hand and took it 65 yards to the maison. It’s not much consolation for the Redblacks, who are getting slaughtered.…
The last time we checked in with Michael Sam, he had signed a two-year contract with the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League. But just three weeks later, and the day before the Alouettes’ first exhibition match, Sam has left the team amidst murky circumstances. The Alouettes released a curious statement…
The Montreal Alouettes are reportedly looking into the tweets of defensive lineman Khalif Mitchell, who has gone on a conspiracy-video kick over the past week.
The CFL's Toronto Argonauts are supporters of the White Ribbon Campaign, a domestic-violence prevention initiative formed in response to the 1989 École Polytechnique Massacre, where 14 women at a Montreal university were murdered by a man who claimed that he was "fighting feminism." It is, not surprisingly, focused on…
As a Canadian, you have a few innate responsibilities. In April you pay your taxes, in November you buy a poppy, in January you watch the World Juniors, and when the Grey Cup comes around, you watch it. Even if your team isn't in it. Even if you're not a CFL fan. The Grey Cup is a transcendent, once-a-year television…
I'm not going to pretend to know anything about the CFL, but I will say that I am now a fan of BC Lions linebacker Solomon Elimimian. That's because during halftime of yesterday's game between the Lions and Calgary Stampeders, he did some great on-camera shit-talking.
