    Nice. Good to be able to watch the fall season of the CFL. NFL Network carried it as summer filler last year. Great to see all the big LABOUR day games are covered. In NY market, the NFL is not worth watching.

  • CFL Fan in the SOUTH

    One of these days the WORLD will realize that this is the best game on grass!

    Excitement and drama, more more more please

  • Geoff
