Canadian Football League Viewing Thread
« on: July 18, 2014, 10:15:37 PM »
ESPN2. Right now!

so I turn the game on, and Hamilton was leading Calgary 4 to 0.

Fun fact:  KSU Cat Banks is playing for Hamilton. 

Anyway, I cannot rough ridin' figure out how Hamilton scored four points.  No idea how that even happens without safeties.


But, there are loads of guys I recognize from college football

Calgary stadium looks a lot like a big division 2 school, or a small Division 1 school. However, it seems to be packed.

I'm getting the impression that Calgary is a top-notch program

It's so rough ridin' weird. It's like, almost all of the rules are the same, but then there will be some calls that the refs make, or some other references that the announcers make that just make you say what the eff is going on?

Look in the background behind their Jumbotron or at either end of the stadium actually, and it looks like they have like rough ridin' dog kennels or horse barns or some crap like that

They allow 800 guys to run directly at the line of  scrimmage before they snap the ball

Do you guys think that running backs in Canadian fantasy football are like how we think of field-goal kickers in the NFL fantasy football?

Seems close to that, but it's like really wide.

Brandon Banks is costing his team big-time right now. Need to get his head in the Canadian playbook
