Hard to go against Winnipeg, they're on another level right now. Had there been a 2020 season they'd probably be going for a 4 peat right now.

Honestly the CFL has some things I like better than the American game. I like the single point/rouge. I like the multiple men in motion and players being able to run towards the LOS. But the CFL field is bigger and there are 12 men so it kind of allows for that better.

One thing the CFL is worse at though is roughing the passer. People think the American game has gone soft with some of the roughing the passer calls, the CFL is way worse. I saw some this year that made Tom Brady's terrible call this year look like a mauling.

My Canadian friend made this comment.
Canadian rules are different than here in the U.S. a lot more offense "Run and Shoot".
Not sure what he meant by run and shoot, seemed like low scoring to me.

I can't prove this but I think the games get less high scoring as it gets colder, and BC is the only team that plays indoors. When it's warmer it seems like it's harder to play defense.
