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 Hamilton Tiger-Cats had a stellar 2019, finishing the regular season on top of the Eastern Division, but how can they continue that momentum into 2020?

In American sports, big threes are a common trait of a winning organization. To win, you need three players who together shape a team’s dominance and eventual playoff success. With just over 100 days until the kickoff of the 2020 CFL season, a big three of players isn’t forming within a team, but a big […]

Nik Kowalski, Editor - Jan 22, 2020

Over 200 CFL players are set to hit the market and become free agents on February 11, meaning they’ll be new faces everywhere from B.C. to Ottawa. Last season Mike Reilly, Trevor Harris, Willie Jefferson, and Greg Ellingson were the biggest fish to move cities. But diamonds in the rough such as Cody Fajardo, Dylan […]

Top 10 CFL
Nik Kowalski, Editor - Dec 19, 2019

Over the past decade, one CFL dynasty came to an end right before another took off. To no surprise, both had the key ingredient in a star quarterback; first Anthony Calvillo for Montreal and now Bo Levi Mitchell in Calgary. Both pivots enjoyed at least one CFL championship in the last 10 years, and both […]

The biggest game of the year for Canadian football fans is here. The 107th Grey Cup will kick-off in Calgary Sunday, November 24th at 6:00 PM EST.

Winnipeg Grey Cup
Nik Kowalski, Editor - Nov 22, 2019

With 4:32 remaining, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers had a seven-point lead over the Saskatchewan Roughriders and a Grey Cup ticket appearing to come to fruition. At the time the Bombers were setting up to pin the Riders with another precise Justin Medlock boot. Seconds later, Saskatchewan cleverly faked out eleven of the 12 Bombers on […]

CFL Award
Last Word Staff - Nov 21, 2019

Awards season is upon us in the CFL and there is a healthy dose of competition in each category. That makes these predictions very difficult but on the positive side, that means there were a lot of great performances, storylines and impact that each of these players has made in their respective 2019 campaigns. Let’s […]

Hamilton Grey Cup
Nik Kowalski, Editor - Nov 20, 2019

It’s difficult to distinguish what exactly puts the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on a higher throne than their eight Canadian counterparts, a heavy compliment for this Grey Cup-bound team. Head coach Orlondo Steinauer’s formed a great football team through and through. And this Sunday Hamilton (16-3) will look to put a ring on their stellar 2019 season […]

Edmonton Eskimos
Josh McSwain - Nov 16, 2019

Last week, the Edmonton Eskimos looked like the team that started the season 6-2. Trevor Harris balled out, slinging the ball all over the field as he completed 36 of 39 passes for 421 yards in a game that set the record for most accurate playoff performance (92.3%). C.J. Gable didn’t have eye-popping numbers but […]

Over the past years, TSN has done an excellent job stirring the pot with its Top 50 CFL Players list. CFL players care about their personal rankings, and when factoring in pride and salary bonuses, they surely care about whether their name’s on a CFL All-Star ballot. That said, it’s no cakewalk narrowing it down […]

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have begun their journey without CFL all-star Jeremiah Masoli and the team has shown promise. Clearly, Dane Evans has a lot to prove but he is starting to settle in with the offence and offensive coordinator Tommy Condell. It takes time for players and coordinators to develop a relationship, but Evans and […]

Jeremiah Masoli
Nik Kowalski, Editor - Jul 27, 2019

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have confirmed that Jeremiah Masoli will miss the remainder of the 2019 CFL season with a torn ACL in his left knee. The team issued an update less than 24 hours after Masoli went down on a non-contact play while being chased by Winnipeg’s Craig Roh in the first quarter of Hamilton’s […]

If you look atop the 2019 CFL team statistics, you’re going to become quite familiar with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. They’re one and two in points for and allowed, touchdowns for and allowed, and opponents pass efficiency — oh, and they happen to have the top two CFL records after six […]

Brandon Banks
Connor Knight - Jul 17, 2019

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 […]

The international outcry surrounding the death of George Floyd in police custody has made its way north of the border to Canada and has reopened discussions around diversity and racism. CFL teams all offered their solidarity with the black community and affirmed their anti-racism stance; however, one team has faced backlash over the hypocrisy over their […]

The ongoing pandemic is threatening the 2020 CFL season. CFL games may restart in September but, according to league commissioner Randy Ambrosie, this is the best-case scenario. Until then, unfortunately, CFL fans will be left with little more than reruns and football games at the All Jackpots Casino. News has recently emerged about a potential […]

The Grey Cup
Oliver Eastwood - Jul 17, 2019

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 […]

Josh McSwain - Jul 17, 2019

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 […]

Nik Kowalski, Editor - Jul 17, 2019

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 […]

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 […]
