The last time a CFL team went a whole season without a win, Newfoundland had just joined Canada. But what caused the decline in winless seasons in the CFL?


The Grey Cup
Oliver Eastwood - May 28, 2020

A few days ago, CFL Commissioner Randy Ambrosie hosted a virtual Town Hall. In it, he made a few key announcements regarding the 2020 season. Ambrosie discussed both a shortened season and the cancellation of Touchdown Atlantic; however, the most impactful point made concerned the change to the Grey Cup hosting format. Previously, teams bid […]

Edmonton Eskimos quaterback Trevor Harris
Josh McSwain - May 26, 2020

Following up an icon on a sports team is no easy task. In the case of Edmonton starting pivot Trevor Harris, he is following up two different signal-callers that have been among the most accomplished in the history of the CFL. But more than just following up on Ricky Ray and Mike Reilly, Harris has […]

Yesterday the CFL provided a much-needed public update to the state of its 2020 season. Commissioner Randy Ambrosie’s message had three key points: a potential season start date, the cancellation of Touchdown Atlantic, and a new Grey Cup host (possibly). Debating over the likelihood of the 2020 season being played would be endless, so hypothetically […]

CFL All-Decade Team
Last Word Staff - May 18, 2020

Sick of 2010s’ lists? Well, we have good news — this is a 2020’s list! Totally different. In all seriousness, there are a ton of CFL players under 30 — an unofficial cutoff age for this team — who deserve some recognition for their greatness to come. And considering the CFL’s ratio rules of course, […]

Set to become the tenth team in the CFL, the Atlantic Schooners have been in the works since 2017. As the revival of a failed 1980s franchise, the Schooners hope to bring football to the Maritimes. The region has seen significant support for a Canadian football team; however, recent and ongoing developments threaten to derail […]

The Hallett brothers are the newest sub-brand of the Canadian Mafia. With the 18th pick of Thursday’s draft, Winnipeg selected defensive back Noah Hallett, brother of Blue Bombers 2019 seventh-round pick Nick Hallet. Noah was Winnipeg’s first 2020 draft pick after the team surrendered their first-round pick as part of the Zach Collaros trade, which […]

Even though COVID-19 disrupted their path to the Draft, the college talent available is immense this year. Here are the top players in the 2020 CFL Draft.

They were the best team of the CFL US Expansion and the only American Grey Cup-winners. The Baltimore Stallions’ success story is nothing short of amazing.

Saskatchewan Roughriders Uniforms
Stephen Bolen - Apr 22, 2020

With the uncertainty heading into the 2020 season, I’ve made it a personal mission to continue looking back on the CFL and its great history. Whether that be watching classic highlights and games, looking up stats of former players, or in this case — seeing the history and progression of the Saskatchewan Roughriders uniforms. Nowadays, […]

Bo Levi Mitchell
Nik Kowalski, Editor - Apr 21, 2020

Like him or not, Bo Levi Mitchell is one of the faces of the CFL. And truth be told, he is the perfect man for the role, a prototypical “face of the league” player if you will. Mitchell’s a gun-slinging quarterback with a Texas accent who talks trash (which he usually backs up). He’s a […]

under the radar free agency
Oliver Eastwood - Apr 17, 2020

It’s easy to miss the hidden gems that flew under the radar in the 2020 CFL free agency – here are a few that will have a big impact on their new teams.

Nik Kowalski, Editor - Apr 14, 2020

“Deon Beasley takes it to the end zone… and flips out… and so does this stadium!” It’s one of Rod Black’s memorable CFL calls, coming on the final play of a 2010 walk-off Winnipeg Blue Bombers win over the B.C. Lions. For those who don’t remember, this berserk game is from October 11, 2010 — […]

Josh McSwain - Apr 13, 2020

The sports world is in flux. Should the CFL cancel or delay the 2020 season?

Saskatchewan Roughriders Games
Stephen Bolen - Apr 8, 2020

Let’s pick things up from Part One of our list of Top 10 Saskatchewan Roughriders Games of the 2010s. It certainly is a trip down memory lane for myself as I’m sure it is for many. I remember where I was and the people I was watching each of these games with. It is my […]

CFL Fantasy
JR Reynolds - Apr 8, 2020

Week 15 has a full four-game slate to examine for this week’s CFL fantasy action. Before that, there are some loose ends to tie up. Trevor Harris will be out when the Eskimos take the field against the Tiger-Cats, with Logan Kilgore will take over in Harris’ stead. Harris has had a fairly good year, […]

Brandon Banks
Connor Knight - Apr 8, 2020

The success of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats this season is in large part due to the contributions of Brandon Banks. In his seventh season in the CFL, all with the Tiger-Cats, Banks is on pace to break his single-season record for receiving yards. Leading the league with 506 receiving yards and third in receiving touchdowns with […]

Saskatchewan Roughriders Bye Week
Stephen Bolen - Apr 8, 2020

Four games into the 2019 season and one could say it’s been anything but a normal start. Week 1 set the tone for the odd start to the season with starting quarterback Zach Collaros going down after a controversial headshot from Ticats linebacker, Simoni Lawrence. Backup Cody Fajardo gave Rider fans a reason to believe […]

If Danny Maciocia gets his way, the Canadian Football League will introduce roster changes to encourage teams to start using Canadian quarterbacks. The league has yet to produce a marquee homegrown franchise pivot since the retirement of Hall of Famer Russ Jackson nearly a half century ago. And some, like the 2005 Grey Cup winning […]

Rod Villagomez - Apr 8, 2020

However, the team has recently brought in Travon Van and Aston Whiteside, two defending Grey Cup champions, to bolster their roster. Travon Van and Aston Whiteside to Rejoin Maas in Edmonton Ottawa Redblacks running back Travon Van and defensive end Aston Whiteside have signed on to be […]

For ten seasons, Peter Dyakowski was a fan favourite, and a beloved figure both on and off the field. The team released Dyakowski earlier today.

As the 2017 CFL Free Agency enters its second day, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats bid adieu to two key players from last year, with Beau Landry and Chad Owens – both of whom spent significant time on the Hamilton injury list – opting for other teams. Tiger-Cats Lose Two in Free Agency 2017 Earlier on Wednesday, […]

Rod Villagomez - Apr 8, 2020

As day one of CFL free agency winds to a close, there are many old faces in new places. It was a busy day for the defending Grey Cup champs. The Ottawa Redblacks lost some key pieces on both sides of the ball, but gained two talented pass catchers in the process. Here’s a look […]
