Shuffle Off To Toronto: Understanding CFL Rules

Hey everyone! As a lapsed Canadian I thought it might be helpful if I highlighted some of the differences between NFL and CFL rules before Sunday's game. I cheered many seasons for the Hamilton Tiger Cats (why no SB Nation site for the Ti-Cats?). I hope the Hawks take full advantage of playing in Canada.

1. Bigger field: 110 meters between end zones, wider as well.

2. Orange flags instead of yellow. Those aren't dozens of Coach Challenge flags being tossed around!

3. Three downs instead of four. We won't need to worry about the pesky problem of our defense getting off the field on third down.

4. Twelve players per side. Super excited that the 12 Man is finally allowed on the field! I plan on lining up near Richard Sherman.

See you in Cabbage Town! If this goes well, maybe we can move a home game a year up to BC Place.
