3 weeks into the season. Has anyone been following it so far?

I've been downloading the games and have watched most of the first 2 weeks so far. It's been a fairly entertaining season so far.

It's hard to adjust to the rules, as I had not followed CFL since the CFL Colts left Baltimore over a decade ago, but besides the weird clock rules that I can't entirely figure out still, it hasn't been a bad adjustment.

I highly suggest CFL for die-hard football fans waiting for the NFL and NCAA seasons to start.

As I recall, after we won the Grey Cup, all the American teams were forced to fold or relocate to Canadian cities because the CFL was ending their "experiment."

The Baltimore CFL Colts/Stallions are the current Montreal team, I think.

The Stallions were the last American team standing (all the others folded); they won the Grey Cup, but had to move to Montreal because the Browns moved and became the Ravens. By all accounts the Stallions were actually quite beloved and supported, which is cool.

I cannot believe that my Riders are 3-0 after trading away our MVP quarterback for the puu-puu platter.

Try not to be confused by the rules of the clock; as far as I can tell, there is no rhyme or reason to anything clock-related.

Yeah the CFL Colts/CFL Football Club/Stallions were very well supported. I went to pretty much every home game those 2 years and I know a lot of people that did too.

And yes, they only left because the Ravens came to town. This killed the experiment, but I think the Stallions would have been the lone CFL team in America if not for Modell.

It's a shame the CFL never really took off in America, besides Baltimore, because it's a great sport and fairly interesting. But I heard the NFL and CFL have an agreement so the CFL won't go to America any more.. I wonder if this means the NFL will never put a team in Toronto. And would it affect the Argos a lot?

Glad to hear the clock IS just random. It stops after an in bounds play sometimes, keeps running after an out of bounds play, keeps running after touchdowns and penalties, etc. I just stopped paying attention to it.

I saw a CFL thread and thought it would be about the Winnipeg cheerleaders and their scantily-clad and NSFW pictures that are all over the internet. :>

I watch online periodically. I used to really follow it when it was on ESPN. Of course, that was three kids ago.

I love any football, but it's not easily available here in St Louis for viewing. Anybody know a good site to view games or hilights?

Slightly NSFW. Also, you should read Deadspin.

I grew up with the CFL, but have only started watching it again this season after 10 or so years. I suppose it could have something to do with being a life-long Ti-Cats fan and them suddenly having a team that can win some games.

Having played both American and Canadian football, I have a lot of love for both games. I think Canadian is more fun when you don't have the same level of skill and knowledge. And it's awfully fun to watch the CFL with someone who only knows American football, though.

I watched 2 of the 4 week 3 games I have on my computer today. 2 more to go!

- Good to see Calgary get a win finally. Montreal really looked flat in the second half.

- Oh my lord, what is wrong with Winnipeg? And they have to go to BC next week after losing to them 41-24 at home.. ouch.

I'm annoyed that the grey cup is being playing in Montreal on the same night as (for now) the next ISW show.

the road trip may be in peril.

Rotchy is looking at alternative dates.

Hopefully Montreal will make the Grey Cup Finals being held in Montreal

That all-time chokejob against us yesterday probably isn't a good sign for that. :)

Smart money would be on their second challenge that wasnt overturned for a TD. I'm glad to see them get beat but I and most of the people watching the game with me felt that the receiver would've come down in bounds if he hadnt been pushed.
