    CFL: - The CFL thread - Part IV

    And we've got a rematch of the 2016 Grey Cup coming up, with Calgary desperately trying to avoid a Bills-like defeat threepeat, and Ottawa in their third championship game in four years.

    Can Ottawa’s QB replicate the type of pass offense Burris did 2 years ago?

    So, Jonathan Rose got one game for pushing the ref, but then appeals his suspension and is eligible to play until the appeal takes place, aka he’ll be eligible to play in the Grey Cup.

    Crazy loophole, pretty unfair even coming from a REDBLACKS fan. But, those are the rules consistently.

    Imagine being a team that has existed for 5 years yet you've been to 3 title games in 4 years.

    Meanwhile, the Bombers have been to like, 2 in 25 years. **** i hate being a fan of this team.

    Question: I am trying to find a good deal on a Cats jersey and was wondering if anyone knows places where I could get one. Know the team store and league shop but am hoping to find an online retailer from Canada that has them on a discount and will ship to the US (this is why SportsCheck isn't an option).

    Can vouch for River City. Used to get my sports stuff there all the time before they closed down a couple near me.

    3 in the last 17. On average a team should appear in the Grey Cup 4 out of every 18 years so Bombers aren't really that far off that pace. Mostly due to Mike Kelly/Joe Mack stupidity that buried the Bombers for 5+ years in the middle of that span.

    While they were different franchises, Ottawa had like 22 straight seasons without a winning record before 2015 between the Rough Riders, Renegades, and Redblacks.

    Yeah Ottawa went 1982-2014 without making a Grey Cup. Sure, they only had a franchise for like 20 of those seasons, but still.

    Getting tired of seeing Calgary in the game though. But doubtful that will change much going forward. Hufnagel is too good at replacing anyone who leaves. Basically the Belichick of the CFL at this point.

    Stamps winning the Grey Cup in Edmonton is just too good a story-line to not happen.

    Although if Bo-Levi goes elsewhere as a free agent, that could make things interesting. His track record in big games is hard to ignore. If he loses 3 in a row, Calgary might let him walk and that can shift the balance of power

    Then again the Stamps were apart of the 2014 Grey Cup but that was more Hamilton self inflicted pain than anything....
