Kyler Murray and the Allure of the Scrambling QB

I must divulge I am a long time Arizona Cardinals fan, suffering all the way back to the days of Jake “The Snake” Plummer, Jeff Blake and Josh McCown. You’ll have to excuse my bias when discussing the latest fad in the NFL and what would appear to be the NFL’s darling phenom, Kyler Murray,Continue reading “Kyler Murray and the Allure of the Scrambling QB”

Ricky Foley Ruffles Feathers but Was Always a Great Player

With a pretty popular Canadian born CFL player ruffling a few proverbial feathers lately on Twitter, I thought it was a great time to throw a few words together and let you know about Ricky Foley. One of my favourite non-import defensive players of all time, Foley played the better part of 12 seasons inContinue reading “Ricky Foley Ruffles Feathers but Was Always a Great Player”

Jerseys you won’t admit you own: The mystique of thee obscure jersey

Full disclosure here, I am a collector of obscure and rare jerseys. Phew, that feels good to unburden this odd proclivity. After all, anyone can own a Bo Levi Mitchell Stamps jersey, Lebron James Heat jersey, or a Tom Brady Patriot jersey. That’s boring. This is where I’m going to throw down the proverbial gauntlet.Continue reading “Jerseys you won’t admit you own: The mystique of thee obscure jersey”

The Last of a Dying Breed: The Old-School QB Assassins

When I harken back to my formative years as a young CFL fan, I am invariably drawn, time and time again to the old school seek and destroy defensive ends.

Just for Kicks: CFL Kickers Opting-Out of Contracts

The 2021 CFL season looks to be rife with free agents with all these players opting out of their current contracts. This certainly does seem to be the case in the first few days of the “opt-out window” in regards to the league’s kickers and punters. Prior to the cancelled 2020 season, the Hamilton Tiger-CatsContinue reading “Just for Kicks: CFL Kickers Opting-Out of Contracts”

NFL Players Who Could Make a Return to the CFL

I’ll start by saying I watch both leagues so I am always invested in how our former CFLers are performing down in the NFL. Some players carve out a lengthy, successful career and stuff their bank accounts like a thanksgiving turkey, like a Cameron Wake, others, not so much. Sadly, many players do not surviveContinue reading “NFL Players Who Could Make a Return to the CFL”

Never a Dull Day: Chris Jones’ Tenure in Saskatchewan Was Always Entertaining

On December 7, 2015, a scant seven days after winning the 2015 Grey Cup with the Edmonton Football Team, Chris Jones threw the CFL into a frenzy after announcing he had signed a three-year deal to become the new General Manager and Head Coach of the storied Saskatchewan Roughriders. Cue the most interesting period inContinue reading “Never a Dull Day: Chris Jones’ Tenure in Saskatchewan Was Always Entertaining”

Sunday Thoughts: The Riders 2020 and the CEBL is Stealing the Show

Well, well, well. Here we are folks, our beloved CFL looks to be on the ropes and Iron Mike Tyson has a haymaker lined up and ready to deploy. I do not wish to regurgitate the succinct article written on this site a few days ago, so I’ll say this and move on: the FederalContinue reading “Sunday Thoughts: The Riders 2020 and the CEBL is Stealing the Show”
