ive got CBC and I've seen some games.

speaking of i saw a 1 to 0 game. how the hell can the score be 1-0?

There's this thing called a "rouge"

If the ball is kicked into the endzone and the team downs it, the kicking team gets a point, while the recieving team keeps the ball.

I think it works for turnovers, but the wikipedia CFL rules are vague on that.

Basically the kicking team gets a point for a kicking a touchback.

Is it also if you kick a field goal out of the back of the endzone, even if it misses the uprights?

I believe I have heard that somewhere, but I may be way off.

Yes that's correct. A missed field-goal (like in the NFL) but it is way more common in the CFL because of the placement of the uprights, and it leads to some crazy returns. (See Levingston's 129-yard return against BC from this year)

Niiiiiice. Still, someone needs to get the CFL on cable american tv.

I've seen games on Comcast...

Yep, Comcast Sportsnet shows CFL games weekly. They just broadcast the TSN feed.

Yes, Comcast uses both the TSN and CBC feeds. If you have the independent, American One Netowrk, you can see teh CFL on your regular antenna feed. So they use youtube, like that make a large diffrence in their total viewership.

Soon the world will realize that although the NFL has the better marketing and athletes, the CFL has the better game.

Page 29 of the CFL Rule Book

Article 4 ? Single Point Or Rouge

If the ball is kicked into the Goal Area by an opponent, a rouge is scored:

(1) when the ball becomes dead in possession of a team in its own Goal

Area or,

(2) when the ball touches or crosses the Dead Line or a Sideline in Goal,

and touches the ground, a player or some object beyond these lines.

AR: Team A kicks to Team B. B1 attempting to catch the ball on Team B?s

3-yard line, fumbles it and is tackled with the ball in possession in the Team

B Goal Area. RULING ? Rouge (ball deemed to have been kicked into Goal

Area by Team A).

AR: Team A kicks to Team B. B1 catches the ball in the Field of Play while

moving towards own Goal Line and, in the judgment of the official, the

momentum carries B1 into own Goal Area. RULING ? Rouge (possession

deemed to have been gained in the Goal Area).

After a rouge, the team scored against shall next put the ball into play by a

scrimmage as first down at any point between the hash marks on its 35-yard

line.

If the single point was scored as the result of an unsuccessful field goal

attempt, the team scored against may elect to scrimmage the ball at any

point between the hash marks on its own 35-yard line or at the previous line

of scrimmage.

NOTE: For the purposes of this Article, a drop kick or place kick shall, without

exception, be deemed to be a field goal attempt.

NOTE: If during a kickoff, the kicked ball proceeds through the Goal Area

and across the Dead Line or Sideline in Goal without being touched, there

shall be no score and the ball shall be awarded to the receiving team at any

point between the hash marks on its own 25-yard line.
