Up north in the CFL playoffs, the Ottawa Redblacks outdid any NFL team this season with a limbo celebration after a first-quarter touchdown by Diontae Spencer, who was the limbo stick after scoring. And one end is a guy named Rhymes!
You will be forgiven for not knowing what the hell is going on in this highlight, which shows a bunch of people moving around pre-snap, followed by a punt that seems to catch the broadcasters by surprise, followed by a man on the punting team recovering the punt, and then celebrating about it. It’s an onside punt!
The Hamilton Tiger-Cats—recently in the news for hiring disgraced former Baylor coach Art Briles before announcing less than 24 hours later that they would actually not be hiring Art Briles—reportedly worked out former Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel last week before deciding not to pursue him on the basis…
After the Hamilton Tiger-Cats announced that they were hiring disgraced former Baylor coach Art Briles as an assistant earlier today, the CFL declared tonight that Briles won’t be joining the franchise after all:
Art Briles, who coached the Baylor football team during a period in which his players are alleged to have committed up to 52 rapes, has found himself a new job. The CFL’s Hamilton Tiger-Cats have just announced that Briles has been hired as an assistant head coach.
Karen Kuldys of Winnipeg was lucky when she was selected in a local supermarket promotion to be in placed to win $1 million if two kickoffs were returned for touchdowns in last night’s CFL matchup between the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and the Toronto Argonauts. Kuldys was very lucky when the very first kickoff of the game…
Vince Young has tried a few comebacks in recent years, his latest ending on June 17 after being cut by the CFL’s Saskatchewan Roughriders following a torn hamstring. Near the end of that project, the quarterback had time to talk shit about former Titans head coach Jeff Fisher to Sports Illustrated.
Amid a flurry of NFL free agency moves on Thursday, 33-year-old former NFL quarterback Vince Young announced his triumphant return to football with the CFL’s Saskatchewan Roughriders.
Calgary executed an incredible comeback to force overtime with Ottawa in the Grey Cup, and as the Redblacks took a knee to end regulation, things got very f-bomby on the line of scrimmage. (Let’s get this camera angle on NFL broadcasts, eh?)
Ottawa is stomping Calgary in tonight’s Canadian Super Bowl, which is one of the most entertaining football events of the year but which gets next to no promotion or notice by ESPN, the CFL’s U.S. broadcast partner. That’s a shame, because more people could be watching great things like this. Or—depending on your…
Chris Rainey, who busted out of the NFL due to shenanigans, gave BC Lions an early lead on Calgary tonight with this 95-yard punt return. Football highlights, everybody!
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.
