My cousin was the starting fullback for one of the top Canadian Universities though (Laurier), and knows a ton of guys in the CFL, and I know a couple of them too.

Also, my high school rugby coach won a Grey Cup. Grey Cup = SuperBowl of the CFL.

And Paul Coffee's cousin Kevin was my baseball coach.


hello? doug flutie?

He's American. He played in Toronto for a bit, but most of the time you meet NFLers before they're in the NFL.

Also, Doug's younger brother Darren is the CFL's all-time leader in receptions.


I know he's American... (i think he played at BC...), but he did spend a lot of time over there, him and his brother. But I am of the belief that he might sign with Toronto again after he is done in SD to finish out his career. At least I think that would be cool.


Yeah he played for a few teams.... BC first, then Calgary for a while (they were actually my favourite team, even though I live in Toronto), and then Toronto for 2 years.

And some people might not know this, but in his 6 full CFL seasons, he averaged 5,935 passing yards, and 40 TD passes per season. He had 44 or more in 3 of those seasons.

I meant Boston College... not British Columbia. My bad... :-/

Anyways, that's exactly why Flutie Flakes should play at least one more season in Canada before he retires... he was a champ.

As for the stats, while they are super human in the NFL, remember in the CFL the field is wider, there are three downs instead of four (meaning more likely to pass than run), and defensive lineman have to line up a yard off the ball. The CFL has a system that favors the offense heavily... because more scoring = more excitement, and more excitement = more fans. ;-D

Well I don't know if it's BECAUSE more scoring equals more fans. Although that might be why it's still around. The CFL has been around for almost 100 years. But yeah, offensive numbers are exaggerated. And playing with 3 downs is IMO the main reason I don't watch a lot of CFL football.
