"Cohon sees NFL in Toronto as a threat to the league"
"For (the NFL) to work here, they know they want to help us."
"My first approach is let's figure out what we can do and if that doesn't work we'll have a different discussion."

"The league continued to have issues with officiating"
By teaming up with the National Football League, CFL Commissioner Mark Cohon and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell should begin negotiations in assisting the Canadian Football League in their long term officiating of games for many years to come.

So you're gonna teach officials two sets of rules? Or put some prospective officials on the track to do CFL games instead of NFL games? Yeah, that'll work well, I'm sure.

The NFL should have nothing to do with the nuts and bolts of the CFL's on-field product. Besides that, I don't agree that their refs are clearly superior to ours.
My name is Argolio, and I approved this post.

I'm trying to be tactful when I respond to this, but you are wrong with your "isn't real football" statement.
The only difference is the size of the field and number of players.

Now that's out of the way, I don't think the NFL should involve itself with the CFL either.
The NFL is the 800 lb gorilla on the North America block but they should just leave the CFL alone.
The NFL has already made, IMO, a huge mistake in playing regular season games overseas.
A friend of mine works at Dolphin Stadium and he said that game cost him around $250.00

NFL....leave the CFL alone.

"Canadian Professional Football" will have some exposure on the NFL Network
For example, Saskatchewan is used for the 2008 season.

Week 13 Nov 9 vs Calgary Week 14 Nov 16 vs Edmonton

The Grey Cup game is November 30.

By teaming up with the National Football League, CFL Commissioner Mark Cohon and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell should begin negotiations in assisting the Canadian Football League in their schedule.

"Just caught the Nov 9 installment of Sun TV's "CasinoRama Grill", a sports roundtable tv show shown in Toronto. They started off by bashing the CFL and the "zero interest" in the league in "Canada's most important market", Toronto."

"It's great that all these people like the CFL. But how many of them would be prepared to discuss the impact of Mike Pearson's injury on the Eastern Final? Certainly not all of them could. But I bet that every one of them could explain the impact of Marvin Harrison's injury on that Colts-Pats game. "

"The Patriots are just destroying everyone in their path… We're going to hear about the 2007 Patriots more than we hear about the ' 72 Dolphins if they go perfect. "

1972 Miami NFL Season

Week 13 Dec 10 @ New York Giants Week 14 Dec 16 vs Baltimore

By teaming up with the National Football League, the Canadian Football League could have a preseason and regular season schedule that the Toronto Media would not make statements that "the CFL is finished as the NFL team in Buffalo will soon be the NFL team in Toronto".

Go ahead and be as tactful or as un-tactful as you like - you won't convince me that the AFL is nothing but a novelty act that gives some players a chance to play a warped, unrecognizable version of the game they grew up playing. I don't feel that it's real football at all and you're not going to change my mind...

For american players, the AFL isn't all that much different from the CFL in its unrecognizeable quality. For americans...at least the AFL has a fourth down.

:rotf: Oh...are you serious?? I doubt you'd find too many players that would agree with you - there's a lot of more similarities between the NFL and CFL than there is for either with the AFL.

I consider the AFL to be the equivalent of seven a side rugby. Fewer players, more scoring. Many people like it, some even prefer it. But I don't consider sevens to be rugby.

Once again - you don't say why - and "because someone else is doing it" is not a good enough reason...
