Are we being asked to do a 'Compare and Contrast' with the No Fun League?

Chris Schultz... dance machine! Lol

Reason #6,717 why I watch the CFL every chance I get... and virtually never watch the NFL.

Anyone going with A, needs to be escorted out of the building.

Imaging Goodell going into Full Dean Wormer Mode and trying to buy Canada just to put the CFL out of business.

/No fun of ANY kind!

I'm a huge NHL fan, but I'll readily admit that the game is improved by playing on larger international ice.  Similarly, if you're looking for entertainment value, the CFL is just a better mousetrap.

I'll be at the Stamps/Argos game later this afternoon.  I fully expect (yet another) gong-show ending.  I don't know if my heart can take many more of those.

It's so nice to see players (and the studio guys LOL) having FUN playing a GAME. CFL FTW!

NFL: 15 yard penalty, 3 ejections, $600k in fines + $10k for James Harrison just to be sure.

So if I want to be as happy upbeat and bubbly as y'all are, then all I have to do is switch from NFL to CFL?

In a perfect Universe, we would have NFL players and CFL rules.

/like both

No.

The larger ice stupifies the game, and reduces the action quotient because there's more "dead zone" play (ie: areas of the ice where the puck is not in a threatening scoring position). Hockey is most exciting when the puck is in front of the net or is moving towards it. The larger ice surface is counter-intuitive to that because it encourages collapsing zone defenses, stunted positional play, endless cycling in the dead zones in the corners and lots of dump ins and dump outs because the width of the ice makes it easier to clear the puck and defend better.

In short, the international-sized ice surface turns hockey into soccer on skates: Lots of perimeter passing, fewer turnovers, more puck possession, fewer odd-man rushes, lots of movement but nothing getting accomplished, and the puck always far away from the net (where all the excitement happens). That's why there is less scoring in European leagues.

We want aggressive fore-checking, forced puck movement from lack of space, mobile defence and an uptempo, physical style where each shift is going for broke. You do not get this in international hockey.

Goodell would have a seizure if anybody in the NFL displayed that much fun-having

Look at that, the CFL having a full fledged studio analysis show.... almost as crazy as those 4 years NBC had an Arena Football on NBC Studio show.

The CFL is a lot healthier than the Arena league though.  Stadiums that aren't getting major renovations are being replaced, with the exceptions of Calgary and Toronto right now, a new TV deal and a new team next year.

Probably the best shape the league has been in during my 36 year lifetime.

Loved the Eskies game last night! The boys came through to earn me a red bill despite starting the game by giving up 20 straight points.
Overtime was amazing
 
2013-09-21 05:53:07 PM  
I actually watched the Edmonton vs Winnipeg game and I have to say it was more exciting than an NFL game. Almost sounded like a mix between a soccer match and College football with all the music and noise.

I recognize that... the "new" AFL that was resurrected after the league folded in 2008 is a shell of it's former self.  We'll see what having a team owned by KISS will do.

That's your reason to watch the CFL?  Because you like to watch a bunch of guys dance like dorks with eachother during a time out?

Apparently this is the same bunch of people who though playing Katty Perry before the Bengals game was a good idea.

Well the games are fun to watch too.  that's the big reason for me.

If you can't defend against a pass, you might as well be able to dance.

Sir, you are a genuine psychic!   Stamps down 6 on last play from midfield.  (I'd say the 55 yardline but some Americans just can't handle that concept).   They throw a 20 yard pass under the coverage and the pass receiver kicks the ball ahead into the end-zone.  Any Calgary player who was behind that kick could race into the endzone and fall on the ball for the tying TD and one guy came within a yard of doing so.  Toronto did recover the ball, however....

Gong-show indeed!!

I think that was the whole thing in studio.  But here's the full one of the players.  Pretty amusing. http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1777947-cfl-team-does-cupid-shuffl e -during-video-review

Oh yeah, screw BC.  What the hell is up with the Riders the last 3 weeks?
