Evaluating Where Canadian Quarterback Tre Ford Could Be Drafted

When people think of the young Canadian quarterbacks in the Canadian Football League, their minds will instantly snap to both Nathan Rourke and Michael O'Connor, both of whom are signed with the BC Lions for the 2022 season. It makes sense that both of those players are front of mind considering they are already known… Continue reading Evaluating Where Canadian Quarterback Tre Ford Could Be Drafted

A Look Back at Former CFL Stadiums

In a previous article ranking the current CFL stadiums, I mentioned that the stadium landscape had changed dramatically in the league.

They may be gone, but they all left a mark… Continue reading A Look Back at Former CFL Stadiums

CFL Power Rankings – Offseason 2022

Power rankings in February? What kind of crazy talk is that?

It came right down to the wire with the Saskatchewan Roughriders and Duke Williams.

Canadian QBs Could Make Statement In 2022

CFL Quarterback Rankings – Offseason 2022

When we last did this exercise just under a year ago, the CFL was a much different place. They were coming off the lost 2020 season and it was nearly impossible to know who was going to maintain their 2019 level and who wouldn't. It resulted in quite a jumbled list with Matt Nichols being… Continue reading CFL Quarterback Rankings – Offseason 2022

NFL Can Learn From the CFL’s Overtime Rules

If an NHL game goes to overtime, both teams play a three-on-three game for five minutes, a winner is determined if a team scores, if not it goes to a penalty shootout. This is a fair system as both teams have an equal chance to score. If an NBA game goes to overtime, a five-minute… Continue reading NFL Can Learn From the CFL’s Overtime Rules

Ranking the CFL Stadiums

The CFL Stadium landscape has been dramatically changed from what it was a decade ago.

Shaq Evans Responds to Hate From Roughriders’ Fans

It was a down season for Shaq Evans in 2021. After putting up some great numbers including 1,334 yards receiving and five touchdowns in 2019, he only managed 224 yards and no touchdowns in 2021. Of course, this was impacted by an injury that saw him miss half of the season, but the Roughriders fans… Continue reading Shaq Evans Responds to Hate From Roughriders’ Fans
