At this deadest of dead times in the NFL calendar, and given the Panthers' increased interest in Canadian talent of late, I was happy to see that the CFL and ESPN struck a deal for U.S. broadcast of every CFL game. So with the WatchESPN app on my iPad, I've been tuning in and really enjoying some football from north of the border.
I'm developing an affinity for the Edmonton Eskimos in the West and the expansion Ottawa RedBlacks (or should I say REDBLACKS?—their name seems only to appear in all caps) in the East. Anyone else down here in the States adopted a CFL team or teams to root for? (I salute our Canadian Panther fan brethren as well. Which CFL teams are you loyal to?)
I'm gradually absorbing the differences between the Canadian game and NFL rules. I'd be happy to know of any sites fellow fans have discovered for news, stats, and other info on the CFL game. So far, I've mainly just made use of cfl.ca and the teams' sites.
Can't wait for Panther football to resume, but while I'm waiting...
