    Just was wondering does anybody watch CFL games. It does not get a lot of hype but it is actually a pretty good league to watch.

    I thought this thread was going to be about VY's future.

    VY might make a UFL team. He can't cut it in the CFL. He would get confused with receivers getting to go forward motion.

    Whether he would or wouldn't, that's the one the rule I would like to see the NFL adopt that the CFL has. I think that if the NFL was to allow an extra receiver or runningback to go into motion on every play, it would open the NFL game up a great deal.

    As for whether or not I watch the CFL? Of couse I do.

    I'm Canadian.

    I am also a Canadian and I definitely watch the CFL. Not every week or anything, like I watch the NFL (I much prefer the NFL), but I see a bunch throughout the season because my dad is a big fan and we watch some games together.

    The CFL used to be way different than the NFL, but the leagues are more similar than ever right now. The NFL is now a passing league with spread offenses all over the place. The CFL has been doing that for decades.

    Calling it the same as high school football just proves that you don't know what you're watching. It's clearly not at the same level as the NFL, but it's miles ahead of the UFL or any arena league. The quality of play is not as far behind the NFL as a lot of people think. CFL teams are probably at about the same level of play as the top college football teams. Maybe a top SEC team could beat a top CFL team, but it would be a good game.

    I'd suggest to everyone that you try watching a game. Some of the rules are pretty out there, but there are some others that the NFL should adopt.

    Agreed.

    Watch it. You'll enjoy it.

    As for the rules. Add more motion to your game on offense. It'd only make a great game even greater.

    High school is better. Dont be mad your nations version of the NFL sucks. More people care about HS than the CFL. Thats a fact.
