Road to the Grey Cup 2017

We’re basically halfway through an NFL season that has been weird and unpredictable (in a not-great way) and ultimately not all that interesting. We’re still weeks away from games that have any sort of real implications with regards to the postseason.

However, in the league’s neighbor to the north, the playoffs are upon us.

The CFL postseason is set to begin, with six teams vying for the right to hoist aloft the Grey Cup. This year’s championship game – the 105th in the league’s history – is set to take place on Nov. 26 at TD Place Stadium in Ottawa.

So who’s going to win?

While the NFL season is poised to kick off soon – keep an eye out for The Maine Edge’s annual NFL preview from yours truly next week – the gridiron of the Great White North actually just passed the halfway point of its season.

The Great White North gridiron

Some thoughts on the 2016 CFL season

It's the middle of June, and for NFL fans, that means an extended empty stretch with only the occasional OTA and trade rumor to tide us over, followed by a month of meaningless preseason games before real game action actually arrives.

Time for some football, eh?

A 2013 CFL season preview

While the opening of the 2013 NFL season may still be a couple of months away, that doesn't mean that you have to wait until September to get your football fix. Our neighbors to the north are about to get things started.

That's right the 2013 CFL season is upon us.

Sure, it isn't quite the same game. The rules are different and the field is bigger. However, there's no disputing that the Canadian game is eminently watchable, with a charm all its own. Maybe you're a football junkie desperate for a fix. Maybe the impending end of the NHL season has left a void. Or maybe you're just on the market for something new.

Previewing the 100th Grey Cup

Toronto and Calgary meet for the CFL championship

This February, the Super Bowl will be contested at the Superdome in New Orleans. It will mark the 47th time the game has been played. Millions upon millions of people from all corners of the globe will watch. Hundreds of television hours and thousands of articles are devoted to coverage of the NFL every season; you'll even occasionally find some here in these pages. The NFL is the biggest business in American sports, and the Super Bowl is its culmination.

But what if I told you that there was another professional football championship being contested here in November? A championship that has been around for over twice as long as the Super Bowl?
