CFL Beat: Your 2017 Season Wrap-Up

I know that this column revolves around Canada and a whole variety of Canadian things, which for a number of you, might seem like excessive jingoism, and I understand that sentiment. Oddly enough, after experiencing my first-ever Grey Cup live in the flesh, I can now safely say that apparently

CFL Beat: Playoffs – Grey Cup

DIVISION FINAL RECAPS East Division Final Saskatchewan 21 vs. Toronto 25: Despite surrendering a first half 18-3 lead, Toronto is off to their first Grey Cup game since 2012, where they won Canada's top football prize playing at home at the Rogers Centre. It was a full-team effort on this one, though when

CFL Beat: Playoffs – Division Finals

Just three CFL games remain in the 2017 calendar year - the two division finals, and the Grey Cup. We already know we'll have one new team appearing in the championship matchup this season - after back-to-back appearances in 2015 and 2016, the Ottawa REDBLACKS have ended their year unceremoniously.

CFL Beat: Playoffs – Division Semifinals

Playoff football is here at last! Thanks to the final games of the regular season, we now know that Toronto has clinched the East Division, while Saskatchewan will travel to face the REDBLACKS in the playoffs as the crossover team this season. Just a reminder: due to the CFL playoff

CFL Beat: Week 20

It's the final week of the regular season! While the playoff teams have been set for a while, the seeding is still not yet finalized, with the East Division still up for grabs while the lower seeds in the West could potentially feature three teams with an 11-7 record this

CFL Beat: Week 19

With two weeks left in the season, most of the playoff picture has already been settled; this year, Hamilton, Montreal and BC find themselves on the outside looking in, but so far, only Calgary has clinched the division. As a result, with a few games going counter to the picks

CFL Beat: Week 18

I'd like to say I'm giving a shit about football this week. Realistically, I don't know if I could possibly give less of a fuck. Yesterday, Canada lost one its greatest sons, and one of the greatest men this country has ever known. While we knew this day was coming

CFL Beat: Week 17

We've made it 75% of the way through the 2017 CFL regular season! Just four weeks remain on the schedule, and while the West playoff picture is looking fairly clear so far, with Calgary extremely far out in front & with Winnipeg having a cushion over third- and fourth-place Saskatchewan

CFL Beat: Week 15

We'll be 75% of the way through the 2017 CFL season once this week wraps up, though judging by the weather throughout the Northeast and Ontario this past week, one could easily be forgiven for thinking summer had somehow just started. With the heat wave finally breaking today, we're now

CFL Beat: Week 14

This is the time of year where the injury bug is starting to get very noticeable in the CFL. I'm not certain how many times you'll see that word or a related one throughout this week's league update, but I'm certain it's a lot. I'm also concerned with my own

CFL Beat: Week 13

The hurricanes are over - for now - and autumn is just around the corner. It's an old Canadian cliché to say that the CFL season doesn't really begin until after Labour Day, but for a multitude of reasons, this is once again true. The West, just like each of
