Denver is your favorite NFL team. Who do you like north of the boundary?

Wasn't there another team named the Roughriders in the CFL?

Ottawa..they folded in 1996.

Alouettes de Montreal!!

Seriously, I like it more than the Arena League (much more in fact) but it's still too frickin' weird to be a satisfying subsitute in the offseason IMHO.

That's the one I would have said. It was the Ottawa Roughriders - they folded in the 90's. They were like the Steelers of the CFL in the 70's.

How awesome is that, though? There are, what, eight teams in the league, and two of them have the same name?

Crazy Canadians.

I think Eskimos is the coolest name, also they are further north and plat outdoors, they aren't pussys like those Minnesota people.

Lenny Walls is one of my favorites, too. He was a Yay Area prep star from the City. He used to get lit, RBL Posse style. He don't want your rolled up wood!!!

I remember when Jimmy Spencer said one training camp he hadn't seen that kind of cornerback play since Deion.

It kind of reminds me of the LSU/Auburn Tigers and Georgia/Mississippi St. Bulldogs in the SEC.

Crazy Dixie folk.

Well, there's a really, really big difference.

But other than that, good one.

If you wanna get real technical...there was a bit of a difference.

It was the Ottawa Rough Riders and the Saskatchewan Roughriders..they went through great pains to be sure people knew the difference as well, believe it or don't.

FWIW, Ottawa is scheduled for an expansion franchise in 2010.....I know a lot of people would hate this idea, but I'm frankly surprised that the NFL hasn't absorbed the CFL yet. There certainly aren't any currency exchange issues anymore and it would satisfy Goodell's whole "international" thing.

Honestly, I don't disagree with you, to an extent. I think there are a couple Canadian markets the NFL should be in, period. Where I disagree is expansion. I just don't see how you do it, at this point. And I definitely don't see how you do it without putting LA at the top of the list. (I know. I know. LA sucks as a sports market. Except that it doesn't - not in terms the NFL needs.)

You could always move a team or teams. Buffalo makes a lot of sense, from a television standpoint. But how to you screw a bunch of fans that do nothing other than buy tickets - usually, all of them. Kansas City is another option - just because.

I love poking good-natured fun at our friends to the north, though. Let's face it. Canada is, by most respects, a great place to live. But by gosh, those people get defensive. I lived with a guy when I did the Mormon mission thing (down by the NY/PA border) that was from Vancouver. If he thought you were even thinking, in the deep recesses of your mind, in a negative way about Canada, he would get crazy. Of course, he'd bring it on with stuff like, "Have you ever thought about how really stupid the concept of the US flag is?"

He would just let those rip - unprovoked, and at random. How do you not respond to that? I actually ended up kind of hating him, after three months of 24/7 interaction with him.

I had a few roommates at college that were Canadian that were pretty good guys. Still crazy sensitive, but good guys.

Well you guys have good points about expansion in Canada but the reason l'm always hearing up here is that the major sponsor of the NFL is budweiser and they have different ownership in Canada than they do in the U.S, so that wouldn't benefit they major sponsor. And besides l don't think the NFL could get anymore popular in Canada than it already is. If it wasn't for Canadians Buffalo wouldn't even have a team, l hear almost 80% of there fanbase is in Canada.

I voted roughriders because they have the coolest name.

I voted the Argonauts because that is the only team that I have heard of from that list, but now I kind of want to change my vote. Roughriders is a cool name. ;D

I voted Argo's for the exact same reason.

l guess the only reason you guys know the argos is because they go get all the dope heads that get busted in the NFL.

Honestly, probably only Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver are viable NFL cities....I'm not 100% sure about that though

Professional football....sort of. At least it's played on a full field and isn't as big of a joke as the AFL is.

Oh yeah, Arena.

Does Lenny Walls really play in Canada?

I'm still ticked at him for blowing that shutout against the chefs on MNF. Wouldda been the only shutout in Dick Vermeil's coaching career, but NO. Lenny had to tackle with his arms.

and lets not bash the cfl too much, up until the 80s when the nfl got the big money tv contract the cfl actually competed for talent.

each team can score twice in the last 2 minutes, never mind this 3 kneel down ****, how many nfl quarterbacks have passed for 700 yards in a game ?

now its kinda minor league as all we get are scrubs that arent good enough to play in the nfl, but back in the day it was really good.

I remember when Terry Metcalf's decision to leave St. Louis for Cowtown set the football world on it's ear.
