  1. And a lot of people weren't given how bad Manziel has stunk it up since leaving college.
  2. Lineman and linebackers...more space to cover requires these positions to be quicker and probably a little smaller. The linemen especially with more room to cover, one yard off the ball, etc...the 350+ pound behemoths are at a disadvantage, they need to be a little more agile. I mean the game and it's rules are not inferior...there's no doubt that the NFL has higher overall quality athletes.
  3. I'm not Canadian (live in Colorado), but I think it's a great idea for those leagues. Let's be honest, it's highly unlikely any of those players are going to get a single sniff to come to the United States and play NCAA or NFL football. Yea, there may be an outlier here or there but I think the opportunities for those players and those leagues will be better if they are synergistic with Canadian rules.
  4. I'm an American that has been an avid CFL fan for 5 seasons now, watch at least a portion of almost every game via ESPN+ and am happier than a pig in mud about it. I haven't watched a full NFL for several seasons now...to me, the style of CFL football is much more enjoyable to watch. They are two different animals and in my opinion there is nothing to be settled; for many positions they require a different type of athlete. Over the years there have been many successful NFL players go to the CFL and bomb...return to the NFL and then have productivity. And I'd say it's pretty obvious why another pro football league hasn't started up in Canada...yup, population and number of athletes. The CFL has watched how many other alternate leagues come and go in the US and yet here they still are.
  5. The need for a debate of this type always slays me. They are two different animals because of the rules. One example is the wider field and having the d-line a yard off the ball requires a bit smaller and more agile offensive linemen. I'm a HUGE CFL fan...have been for about 5 years now and the caliber of players in the NFL is definitely better than that of the CFL. But so is the level of athlete in DI football to DIAA, DII, DIII, etc. and on down to juco and high school. That's not to say you can't watch some great, exciting and entertaining football at the "non-elite" levels. It's more about the level of competition being relative to each other, having well coached athletes, good game plans, etc. Many, if not most, of the CFL players are just a slight notch below their NFL counterparts...good, but just not good enough. It's a spectacularly exciting brand of football to watch.
  6. Digging the Eskimos with the darker shade of green.
  7. Seattle Haze with Jimi Hendrix on the helmet for the win!!
  8. I think a screen shot of his bank account might appease those folks.
  9. Maybe their trying to recruit Larry Mundello and Eddie Haskell?!?
  10. Would have been awesome to see the Ol' Ball Coach in charge of a reformed Tampa Bay Bandits team and bringing back Bandit Ball.
  11. I'm right there with you man, as long as the talent level is fairly equal from team to team some great and entertaining football can be played. Just look at all levels of college and even down to high school...fun stuff and the vast majority of those players ARE NOT NFL caliber.
  12. I'm no graphic expert by a long shot, but looks like it was done in Paint in the 90's.
  13. I did that a few years back and honestly, during the first season was a little strange and we still have football playing on Sunday when we are in the house and doing other things, but I no longer sit and watch all day long. I spend Saturday following the NCAA and watch all the CFL I can and three seasons later don't miss the all-day NFL watching at all.
  14. I will check out any and all newcomers if they are readily available for my viewing, some current league specific comments and my habits regarding them... NFL - Haven't watched a full game in years, honestly got tired of all the non-football stuff and only catch snippets here and there. Hardly follow the league at all and I've been a Bucs fan since they started playing in 1976. NCAA - One of my two primary football passions...go Buffs!! CFL - Was exposed to it years and years ago when I used to travel Canada for work and would watch occasionally. Started watching full time 3 or 4 seasons ago now and am hooked. Very upbeat and fun game to watch...go Stamps!! AAF - Enjoying what I've see so far, but sometimes it's a (minor) hassle to find out what network the games are on. I also think for local attendance they should really push the start of the season back a month...go Fleet!!
  15. Yea, I'm done with this conversation with you. It seems pretty obvious you are just looking for further platforms to be negative and bash. I haven't disagreed with you yet you still continue to belabor the point. Enjoy your negativity dude.
