Canadian football
the other league
WHILE MOST video watchers were viewing the "huff and
puff-blow themselves down" Detroit Lions, very few saw the
best game on the tube last Sunday: the Grey Cup.
The Grey Cup is the championship of the Canadian Football
League. The CFL is a much-maligned league often accused of
having inferior players and ridiculous rules. But more often than
not, the CFL produces a more exciting brand of football than
does the so-called "big league."
True, the NFL gets a majority of the good players for
financial reasons but those who travel north to play ball seem
very happy with the CFL.
There are many good U.S. collegiate stars in Canada.
Michigan's Billy Taylor went to the Calgary Stampeders after
failing. to find himself in Atlanta or St. Louis. Eric "The
Flea" Allen plays in the CFL as does former Buckeye star,
Jim Stillwagon. Tom Campana, a defensive back for Woody
Hayes In college, switched to flanker to lead the Saskatchewan
Roughriders to the Grey Cup finals.
One of the better known collegiate players in the CFL is Joe
Theismann, former Notre Dame quarterback, who was 1971 CFL
Rookie ofthe Year. Had he not b-oken his ankle this pastseason,
Theismann may have led his Toronto Argonaut forces to a
successive Grey Cup appearance.
Also on the Argos is a running back from Tampa, Leon
McQuay. McQuay left Tampa in his junior year and probably
would have been a first-round draft choice last year according
to NFL scouts.
But this season, the gold mine was found in the person of
Chuck Ealey, former quarterback from Toledo University.
Playing for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, Ealey took over the
starting job mid-way through the season, and led the Ti-Cats
to the championship, garnering Rookie of the Year honors
and Most Valuable Player in the Cup game along the way.
Ealey fled north primarily because NFL teams are still
reluctant to let a black quarterback play full time. Had any-
one, seen Ealey in action, they would have seen for them-
selves that he is capable of playing for most NFL teams.
Te CFL's divergent rules help improve the game from a
spectator$' view.
I Some of them are well known. The field is 110 yards long
and the end zones 15 yards deep. The teams play 12 to a side, a
move necessitated by the larger playing area.
Three downs comprise a.series, as compared to four in the
NFL. This helps eliminate last-minute stalling by one team
through ball control and lets a losing team get a last crack at
winning the game. Also, there is more passing which gladdens
the hearts of many a fan.
In the Grey Cup game, Ealey completed 18 of 27 passes for
291 yards while counterpart Ron Lancaster connected on 20 of 28
for 239 yards. It took a field goal 'with no time remaining by
Ian Sunter to give Ealey's Tiger Cats their fourth Grey Cup win
over the Roughriders.
Scoring also differs in one respect. A punt or kickoff which
is not returned out of the end zone nets a single point for the
kicking team. The NFL punter has no way to score points for his
team in this manner.
It provides some excitement to the game as does another
rule disallowing the fair-catch. If a punt returner cannot field a
punt without some sort of runback (there is a five-yard circle
around the returner which cannot be entered until he has the
ball), it is a five-yard penalty against the receiving team.
And the CFL season is more reasonable. The schedule begins
in July and ends in December, thus avoiding arctic games when
no one can function properly.
The CFL may not compare with the NFL in financial
resources, television time, or big-league hype, but it does provide
good, exciting football which the NFL often cannot duplicate.
