It would be terrific to have a team in Halifax!

Saskatchewan over Ottawa
Winnipeg over Edmonton

Next week
Saskatchewan over Toronto
Winnipeg over Calgary

2017 Grey Cup in Ottawa will have an all West battle.
Winnipeg vs Saskatchewan

Blue Bombers take the Cup

I have not listen to any reports of player condition/injury reports, since I'm usually terrible with predictions. Chances are it will be the opposite of what I said.


I think my prediction days are over, I've never been very good.

Grey Cup 105 in Ottawa has:
Toronto vs Calgary

Just like the weather forecasters, say one thing, something else happens.

Who would be taking about the CFL at this time of year ?

Well, I'll explain....

Since the CFL finished, I've been watching some NFL games.

I should explain, I don't know much about the NFL, I realize there's more talent, smaller field, 4 downs, fair catch rule.... and a few more that I'm learning as I watch.

I'm only watching Seattle, the league is too big, too many teams etc. It's enough for me.

What I've discovered is it's like watching adults playing and televising the games, vs high schools with father's volunteering to televise the games.

I know, the NFL has zillions of dollars.

I'm wondering how I'm going to feel next year watching my first CFL game ? (and maybe my last ???)

I watch only if there nothing better on or weather has me inside.
I still prefer the CFL, fewer downs bigger field & it's Canadian. Much closer wages to an average person.

Yes, I like the field size, the 3 downs.

I hate the inconsequential penalties that cancel 70% of the big plays.

The way the CFL handles challenges.

The play by play always half a down behind, graphics the same.
