CFL Beat: Week 9

I have nothing clever or witty to say; I'm mostly just tired. Physically tired, yes - I've been chasing kids around a summer camp out of town this week - but mentally tired too. I'm sure many of you are as well. Between last weekend's awfulness, and the sheer stupidity

CFL Beat: Week 8

Back from vacation now, and reality is setting in. I'm heading on the road for work this week, and one of my few things I'll have to do in my spare time will be to eat shitty takeout pizza and watch football. Wait... this sounds suspiciously like most weekends in

CFL Beat: Week 6

Not a lot of time for me to watch this week's upcoming games - I'm leaving on vacation on Saturday to spend 10 days out in beautiful Nova Scotia, where I'll get to spend time relaxing at the family homestead right on the Atlantic Ocean. It's my favourite place in

CFL Beat: Week 5

We have a weird week in the CFL; there's no bye week happening, and we have five games scheduled - this means that one team will draw the short end of the stick and have to play twice during this time frame. This year, my beloved Ottawa REDBLACKS lost out

CFL Beat: Week 4

Yes, I'm happy that we've got real life football going on right now - but you know what else is coming back shortly, besides NFL training camps? GAME OF MOTHER FUCKIN' THRONES, THAT'S WHAT. I have a pretty solid weekend plan lined up right now - two CFL games to

CFL Beat: Week 3

We've made it past two stat holidays, and now there's not much to do for the rest of the summer on the relaxation front except drink, mutter curses at Chris Berman as he ruins yet another Home Run Derby, and, if you're of my mindset, watch the CFL (at least

CFL Beat: Week 2

We're headed into the Canada Day long weekend, and while I won't be watching most of these games, I will instead be doing my patriotic duty by getting drunk at the cottage and lighting off fireworks that were bought on the internet. All the same, I think if we see

NFL News: Derek Carr got paid. Five years, $125 million. He's now the highest-paid QB. Jaws isn't sure if ESPN will have him back for the 2017 season. He feels there are more layoffs coming, and the network hasn't yet said what his role will be going forward. Mild Crimebeat!

CFL Beat: Week 1

Here we go - Week 1 of the regular season! We have only a month to go until NFL training camps open, so for now, let's turn our attention northwards to see what's happening. Reminder: if you haven't entered the CFL pick'em pool yet and are still interested in participating,

CFL Beat: East Division Preview

Hi folks! Just a quick update on some CFL pick 'em options... the CFL's official league runs a pick' em contest with numerous prizes including two tickets to this year's Grey Cup; however, it's unfortunately only open to Canadian residents. Not to be deterred, I've started up a pick 'em
