Calgary Stampeders win Grey Cup then break it in half

The 102nd edition of the Canadian Football League (CFL) championship game was played in Vancouver, British Columbia on November 30 with the Calgary Stampeders of the West beating the East’s Hamilton Tiger Cats 20-16 to win the Grey Cup. The Stampeders built up a 17-0 lead and then more or less hung on the rest of the way while the Tiger Cats attempted a comeback. It looked like Hamilton had pulled it off as they scored a late touchdown, but the play was called back due to a penalty.

Calgary managed to win the Cup for the seventh time in their history, but the players got a little too carried away while celebrating the victory as they broke the Cup in half when the top section separated from the trophy’s base. The players carried on with their celebrations though as they passed the Cup from player to player in pieces. Juwan Simpson of the Stampeders told Canadian television reporters that he believes he broke the trophy as he was excited and all of a sudden the top part became loose.

CFL player Maurice Price fined for anti-gay tweets

The Canadian Football League (CFL) fined receiver Maurice Price of the Calgary Stampeders on May 14 after the league said he made negative and inappropriate remarks on his Twitter account towards defensive end Michael Sam of the St. Louis Rams National Football League (NFL) club. Sam made the headlines recently when he announced that he was gay. He was then selected by the Rams in the recent NFL Draft.

Sam broke down in tears when he was taken in the seventh round on May 10 and then NFL Network and ESPN television cameras showed him kiss his boyfriend. The video of the emotional kiss was soon loaded up to the internet and has since gone viral with more than two million people checking it out on You Tube. Sam received a lot of support, but he was also criticized by many, including fellow NFL players.

CFL Week 16 – Hamilton Tiger-Cats vs. Toronto Argonauts Lines & Predictions

Hamilton Tiger-Cats (7-7) travel up the QEW tonight to play the Toronto Argonauts (7-7) in a game that is sure to be one of the biggest games of the entire CFL season. Both teams are tied in the East Division right now for 2nd place and the winner of this game will take over the sole lead. Since Hamilton has the tiebreaker over the Argonauts already locked up it makes the game slightly more important for the Argonauts.

Both teams managed to win last week, which kept them at a deadlock in the standings. Hamilton beat Edmonton 36-11 thanks in large part to the 3 TD passes from Glenn. Cobb ran the ball 16 times in the game for 1 TD, but was held to only 49 yards. The entire offence did a great job protecting the ball though, which ensured the Eskimos wouldn’t have short field opportunities. Arland Bruce was easily the best receiver on the Ti-Cats, as he caught 6 passes for 142 yards and 1 TD.

CFL Week 15 – B.C. Lions vs. Winnipeg Blue Bombers Lines & Predictions

B.C. Lions (5-9) will be playing against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers (3-10) in the 2nd game today. It isn’t the match-up most Canadians wanted to be watching while they eat their turkey dinners, but it’s definitely better then no game. I hope everyone is having a great Thanksgiving today and having a great time watching the Alouettes beat-up on the Stampeders. This is a really important game for the Blue Bombers, as they can kiss their playoff chances goodbye if they lose today at home.

The Lions beat the Blue Bombers last week in a low scoring affair that featured great defence and plenty of FG’s. Hopefully today’s game proves to be a little more exciting then last week’s match-up or else we might be in for a snooze fest. Jyles completed 21 of 37 passing attempts last week for 258 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT while Lulay completed 21 of 33 passes for 237 yards. Both QB’s also ran the ball a few times although Lulay surprisingly won the running battle. Lulay ran the ball 9 times for 57 yards and 1 TD while Jyles ran the ball 2 times for 20 yards and 1 fumble.
