We have a lot of new signings this week! The month of September is always an interesting one in the CFL, because late NFL training camp cuts can prove to be valuable additions to teams in the stretch drive towards the playoffs. Indeed, there's been a lot of those in
We're back to school, and with Labour Day now past us, we're into the home stretch of the CFL season. The next two months are make-it-or-break-it - and with the NFL back today, some of you may tune out of what's happening north of the border, but rest assured that
LaboUr Day is coming up this weekend - hope you all enjoy the day off. For CFL fans, this weekend is one of the best of the year, featuring some classic rivalry matchups that have been running for years. Labour Day, of course, also marks my return to work, which
This is now officially the back half of the CFL season. While the old-timers claim that things don't really start until Labour Day around here, I think that many things are already quite clear - the Lions and Argos won't make the playoffs, and likely the Ottawa REDBLACKS as well.

Finally home from an incredible week of vacation out East once again, and upon sitting down to write this week's CFL Beat... I just realized that I forgot to enter my picks into the pool last week. Fuck. Such is the price to pay for absolutely gorgeous weather for ten
