Thats the type of game they play in the CFL. much different than the NFL.
I hope Chang suceeds, Im a big fan of his.

this isnt a debate as to which is better. Too many people think the CFL is a walk in the park, yet they have no idea. Obvioulsy the NFL is much more attractive to play in, and one would 100/100 times choose the NFL. But still the CFL is there, and the players, game, coaching style, aspects are different. bottom line.

Players who probably wouldn't fit in the CFL:
Bruisers who can't catch, block, get outside, or a combination of the three.

Big, fat defensive nose tackles(think Ted Washington)

Weak armed, unathletic QBs

Everyone else, yeah, they'd be great. A guy like Westbrook or Bush would pretty much be the best CFL player ever. Obviously Tomlinson too. I'm the biggest Canada sticker-up-for-er on the forum and I'll admit that the talent gap is relatively large. But the main reason for that is the NFL just has more money, and Canadian Universities don't give out full athletic scholarships unless you also have like a 95 average. Not to mention, The US has 300 million people to Canada's 30 million. AND, in Canada hockey is the main sport and takes up at least 70% of all top athletes in Canada. At least.

Anybody who is good at either basketball or football always goes to the US if they can. It just doesn't make financial sense to stay in Canada.

very well put..but as far as i know (because im dealing with it right now) i dont think many schools even offer any money, let alone full scholorships. there are a select few that do, and i believe that its only out west and out east. thats it, nothing in ontario. also..i would be hesitant to call it an athletic scholorship since athletic ability almost has nothing to do with it...more so do your marks.

Schools weren't allowed to give out money for athletics before. I believe they can give out a bit now, but still no full athletic scholarships.

That's considered an academic scholarship though. I was offered money like that and my average was only about 86%.

I think Billingsley is trying to point out that different players have different skillsets that are better suited for either league. Darren Sproles would probably be an MVP in the CFL, while Matt Leinart probably would be less effective than Timmy Chang or Casey Printers.

Eric Grayson, a Toronto all-star QB with a 90+ average. He hasn't decided between Mac or Western yet. Western offerred way less money but the coach really likes him. I wish he came back for a 5th year so we could really dominate.

ya Vick would terrorize the CFL...he would probably break evrey rushing record held by a RB, and every passing record!! jeez... the big field would help him sooo much....but the only thing is hes got about 110 millions reasons to stay in atlanta.

true...their both good situations...i like western tho cuz of marshall. what school u play for? im from peel.

also, i think that one day the CIS could possibly get a move on it, and work their way up to the NCAA...it will take years and money to do so, but they would need to make many exceptions for students and offer many scholorshiops. facilites are getting there, after just seeing Uof T's new stuff, things are looking up.

I heard a rumour that the CIS was trying to collaborate with the NCAA. Any truth to this?

NFL BECAUSE...

Bigger Ball = Easier TO Catch and Clutch while running

Bigger Endzone = Easier for Throwing TDs. Requires less Prescision

NFL
= Better Talent, Rules and Officiating. I hate playing High School ball with CFL rules, i always forget the downs,

1 Point Punt - The fact a punt can win the game pisses me off. I lost a game off a last second punt once.

NFL has overall better games, players, schemes etc.

NOTE**** I'm Canadian Too
