End zones are 20 yards deep though.

It's an allround far more tactical game. Teams are not as concerned about giving up a safety or single.

In fact you'll often see punters kneel to concede the safety. What's more funny is when the punter uses the goal post (on the goal line) as a shield to run around and then still kneel.

And punts are live to anyone behind the kicker, meaning teams often play a gunner, and occasionally attempt the "onside punt". Ticats did it succesfully last year I think.

Oh and you also have the concept of 6 wides! 2 split ends and 4 slots, and the slots can all be in forward motion.

It's generally a far more interesting game because of the interesting rules.

OI!

Start a different thread for this crap! Mutant form of football it is.

We have an extra player and the field is longer...
You go have fun.

And for missing field goals (providing they go through the end zone - posts are in a similar position to rugby). :bash:

No kick-offs after field goals either.

Oh, and for a developed country stadiums in Canada are awful. Sorry Les and Jonboy, just stating a fact.

So what's the current pecking order then?
NFL > AFL > The Testaverde family couch > CFL?

.

So what happens after a field goal? A lineout? A scrum? A coin toss? Jump off?

Strathclyde Eagle 22-10-2007 06:16 PM

I think the other team get the ball on their own 35 yard line. Don't know where they came up with that from - seems quite random!

Think I'll have to record a game for you from NASN so you can see how bizarre a game it is. Having seen more games than I'd care to mention I think even I could get a job as a Special Teams coach in the CFL. Not sure I'd like to stand outside in Canada in November though, might be a problem in an interview. ;)

Grim Reaper 22-10-2007 06:24 PM

I guess that's not too random. Gives the other team OK field position to mount their next attack in a bid to keep the scoring back and forth and create more excitement

Yeh. A missed field goal is in effect a punt. But stuff like that can also be returned given the deep end zones. If the kick is short, does the player kneel and concede 2, or just sneak out his endzone?

CFL kicks ass. If anyone knows how to torrent, there's loads of it. I hadn't missed a game until week 5! (sad i know but I wasn't working at the time!)

If anyone shows a massive interest in it, I can just about probably chuck a game onto DVD and take it to Wembley/post it.


AFL sucks. Still watch it tho.

I remember going to an Arena game at the Docklands years ago, Detroit Drive vs Chicago something or other I believe! :lux:

Yeah, but I like kick-offs. Gives the game a bit of variety.

Not many Devin Hesters in the CFL though.

Yup. Read that just now.

Armando Salguera - Worst journalist ever.

Bring back Ricky?

Strathclyde Eagle 22-10-2007 11:30 PM

I honestly don't know what the answer is. :(

It would be one thing to say we're getting good draft positions, but no Dolphins fan on this thread trusts the management to pick the right players.

At the very least we need to see if Beck can be the answer at QB. We need to find out so we can see if we need to pick Woodson/Brohm (or whoever else might elevate themselves as the best QB in the draft).

Ideally I'd like us to trade down for more picks, but I don't know if we'd get good value for that. For some reason today I re-read details of the Herschel Walker trade. Pity there's nothing like that going about. :(

elliott 22-10-2007 11:31 PM

Miami's first rounder (first pick of the draft) for Dallas's two lower first round picks?

I'd do that.

Beck needs to start for the rest of the season, and the beginning of next. We need to know about him now.

Strathclyde Eagle 22-10-2007 11:42 PM

Talk of the Cowboys really wanting McFadden (Arkansas). Maybe they'd do that?

elliott 23-10-2007 12:01 AM

Miami Dolphins 07 - The No-Name Offense.

Lemon, Chatman and Hagan as our offensive leaders. Sad really.

And ZT was in a car crash last night. Evidently he's okay tho.
