I have to agree, although I will edit his statement to say there are "Some" better rules in the CFL.

I like having more than 1 player in motion before the snap and allowing them to run up to the line makes jamming them much harder.

Kicking in the CFL can be crazy, especially with the single point awarded for a touchback. You get instances where both teams have their kickers on the field and if the kick is missed, the other teams kicker will boot it out of the endzone. You end up with crazy examples like this

I also like our overtime better, but that wouldn't seem strange to you, its very similar to the NCAA's overtime system.

My picks for this weekend will be coming shortly, I was hoping I'd be able to see what the leaders are picking but I guess they are going to come in at the deadline.

it is a better game. you dont see it on TV because the production difference is astronomical and the NFL players are far better for the most part (pretty sure Calvillo and Lulay are better QBs than a bunch of the current NFL starters). 99 years running

which brings me to my next point....no Grey Cup prop?

Not sure who won, but it wasn't me.

I nearly nailed the NHL bonus point though, I believe I was off by 2.

Congrats to whoever did win though. I'll prop you when I'm allowed.

Unfortunately, hashyandy4 also missed by only 2 points and it went to the tie-breaker. You guessed over the amount and his guess was under so he's awarded the +1.

Bubbles is awarded +8 points for being so close with his guess for the NFL bonus.

Yeah I knew I needed the bonus for hitting it right on to have a chance, I actually watched the leafs game last night hoping they'd combine for 9 goals.

Congrats Cowcatcher
