    POST STILL AT THE FRONT OF THE END ZONE WHERE YOU CAN RUN INTO IT

    REAL FOOTBALL

    I think there are three contendors for the Grey Cup, BC, Montreal and Toronto (getting Joseph gives them the weapon they were missing).

      Yes, you guys do enjoy your soccer don't you

      But if soccer players took hits like these, they'd never get back up:

        Why not call it what it really is: Modified rugby with protective gear.

            Because "Modified rugby with protective gear" doesn't lead to a nice three letter designator.

            Canadian Football League = CFL
            North American Modified Rugby with Protective Gear = NAMRPG

            Besides, the ball is roughly shaped like a foot FWIW, the Grey Cup (the trophy for Canada's national championship) does say 'for excellence in rugby' (or words to that effect).

            I agree that the name 'football' makes more sense applied to the sport of soccer. The thread title is actually a jab at Canada's American cousins, whose version of NAMRPG is a bit different than ours and doesn't start till the fall.

              Lol at thinking gridiron players are tough.

                    If you speak about World Cup, the whole world knows that you are talking about football. Football is what England, Spain, Germany, Brazil, Argentina, Italy and the rest of the world play. Anything else called football is just a local sport only known by that particular country.

                    Football is Pelé, Maradona, Raúl, del Piero, etc. American and Australian friends, football is football. Anything else is a local thing that makes no sense whatsoever to the rest of the world.

                    Enjoy real football with Euro 2008.

                    ¡¡¡ Vamos España !!! by the way
