CFL Football is Back in Time for summerPublished June 27, 2015 by Sol FH
The Saskatchewan Rough riders vs Winnipeg Blue Bombers live at Mosaic Stadium at 1:05 GMT.
If you cannot wait for the start of the NFL regular season, you can get your professional football fix with the start of the CFL. The Canadian Football League has cultivated some of the biggest names in the NFL and the games are often a lot more action packed due to the 3-down instead of 4-down rule. This makes for more passing and less short yardage runs, something that many football fans would like to see changed in the NFL.
Tonight’s game is coming all the way live from the Canadian province of Saskatchewan, home to the Roughriders. Rider’s fans are well-known throughout the country as the best of any other city. They brave temperatures so cold that most schools would close, just to see the Green Machine.
The Riders have the highest paid player in the CFL at their helm. Superstar Quarter Back Darian Durant fell to injury last season, but before he did, he had the Riders at 8-2. Durant led the team to a Grey Cup win in 2013, but after his injury, they were knocked out in the West semifinal last year. If he is healthy, it will be a long day for the Blue Bombers.
Winnipeg have a similar team this year but will need a lot of improvements in order to pose a threat for the playoffs this autumn. The two provinces are located side-by-side but travelling to Mosaic Stadium is like going to watch the Super Bowl at a sold out stadium in the US.
