    off the top of my head, mind you i was a Edmonton Eskimos fan..</P>


    Angela "King Kong" Mosca (DT) is a legend in this city, Like LT to NY minus the hookers lol</P>


    in no order </P>


    Garney Henry (2 way player DB/WR) </P>


    Grover Covington (DE)</P>


    Earl "the Pearl" Winfield (WR)</P>


    i'd add Danny McMannus (QB)to the list aswell and i holding a spot open for Arland Bruce (WR) he'spretty special. </P>


    [/quote]</P>


    lol, bandy, you noted "...minus hookers" but I didn't see 'minus coke'. I hope not.</P>


    I watched the Tiger Cats for my first time back in the early 60's. ABC's Wide World of Sports used to show a few Canadian games every year, andalways the Cup.I remember, somewhere around '62, the Cup game was so foggy you could barely see the players, and once the QB threw the ball it just disappeared into nothingness. 10 seconds later, when the announcers were finally told, they'd tell you it was complete. It was amazing how many completions they had in that soup... definitely above 50%.</P>


    I like a lot of the Canadian wide open rules and hope it thrives.</P>


    [/quote]i won't rule out coke lol. how are yah Zim</P>


    .. its a really great game when the talent is there (pre mid 90's) FA and the huge salaries in the NFL has hurt the CFL..a practice squad player in the NFL makes more now than the average starter in the CFL lol.. its very tough to get American talent to travel up north. </P>


    i am happy the CFL is on the NFL Network,</P>

    Yeah, I'm happy they're on NFL, too. Anything they can do to help them is a good thing. Obviously they're not competition, so why wouldn't they.</P>


    Sa;ary levels in all sports in this country are so out of whack that it's ludicrous.</P>


    I always use this example... After Mantle hit for the triple crown they increased his salary to $37,500. That was about 10X more than the average Joe earned at that time.</P>


    Do today's athletes make 10X more than the average Joe today? it's more like 100X. That's so out of whack. I love my sports heroes, but I sure think they make way too much. </P>
