    CFL GAME RULES

    In the CFL, the field is a total of 150 yards by 65 yards, having two 20-yard end zones, for 110 yards of playing field.

    In the CFL, the highest scoring team after two ten-minute overtime periods wins, these twenty minute overtimes continuing until a winner is found. In other words, play continues until a winner emerges, but in very short periods, to keep from going into excessive amounts of overtime.

    The NFL provides for an hour game by having four quarters, called "periods", of 15 minutes each. The only difference from this basic is found in high school football, which has a 48 minute game of four 12-minute periods. Halftime is 15 minutes in all leagues, and there is a two-minute intermission between periods (except in the CFL, where there is a three minute break between the second and fourth periods). The leagues also permit three timeouts per half for each team, except the CFL, which allows only one. A timeout in excess may be taken only for an injured player, or as directed by a referee, except in the NFL, which permits a fourth timeout to be taken before the last two minutes of the second or fourth periods, with a 5 yard penalty being taken in exchange.


    Additionally, the NFL allows 30 seconds for the players to act once the referee has put the ball down on the field and it is to be put into play. The other leagues allow only 25 seconds, except for the CFL, which allows only 20 (this is the time the team can take to huddle, etc. before lining up at the line of scrimmage). The NFL will also take timeouts to show commercials, as will other leagues. The NFL is, however, most noted for this, and the game is geared far more towards commercial presentation and sponsorship.
    The CFL only stops the clock for incomplete passes or players running out of bounds.


    One immediate difference between the other leagues and the CFL is that in Canadian football there are only 3 downs, compared with 4 for the others. The object is still the same; 10 yards must be gained within the downs allotted. Interestingly, there have been petitions to the NCAA to increase from four downs to five, though these have all so far been denied, and any future such change is highly unlikely.

    Another area of difference is in team sizes. While college and NFL ball teams have 11 players, the CFL has a twelfth player. Instead of a tight end, the CFL employs two "Slot Backs". In defense, Canadian teams have an additional linebacker or defensive back, depending upon the play. This is in keeping with Canadian football's larger field size, where more players are needed to cover the extra space. Arena football, on the other hand, has only eight players. This is possible due to the smaller size of the Arena football field.
    A CFL offensive back field has unlimited motion. Only the down linemen can not move. The NFL only allows one player to move parallel to the line of scrimage. This extra motion allows for a larger play set.

    When it comes to when a player can continue running after slipping, the NCAA and NFL differ again. In the NFL, if a player trips and falls to his knee, but is not tackled by the defense, then he may continue to run with the ball. In the NCAA, a player is considered down if he contacts the field with any part of his body other than feet and hands. Note that with respect to quarterbacks, the CFL holds that he isn't down until he is face down, completely out of the action.


    6 points for a touchdown (carrying or passing the ball across the opposition's goal line).

    3 points for a field goal (kicking the ball through the goalposts and over the crossbar).

    2 points for a safety (making the opposition down the ball behind their own goal line).
    2 points or 1 point for a conversion. This is an attempt to put the ball over the opponent's goal line again right after scoring a touchdown. 2 points are awarded for carrying or passing the ball from the 3 yard line (5 yard line in Canadian Football) into the opponent's end zone (where the touchdown was just scored). 1 point is given for a successful kicking of the ball, as this is easier to accomplish. Kicking also takes place from the 3 yard line. The NFL allows the conversion to take place from the 2-yard line


    Another difference that may completely confuse non-Canadian football fans is the rouge. This scoring is used only in Canadian Football. A rouge is scored if the ball can not be returned out of the endzone. Fieldgoals are live and can be returned for a touchdown. Should the defending team not return the missed field goal out the end zone a single point is awarded to the kicking team.

    For example: The first team kicks to the second team. A player on the second team attempts to catch the ball in his team's endzone, but fumbles the ball and is subsequently tackled. The other team scores a rouge, as the ball became dead in possession of a player in his own goal area.

    After a rouge, the team scored against next puts the ball into play at any point between the hash marks on its 35 yard line. If the point was scored as the result of an unsuccessful field goal attempt, the team scored against may elect to put the ball back into play at its own 35 yard line or at the point of last scrimmage.

      Grey Cup Winners

      GREY CUP

      The Grey Cup is the trophy awarded each year to the champion of the Canadian Football League. Donated by the then Governor General of Canada, Earl Grey, in 1909, it was to be awarded to the Rugby Football Champion of Canada.

      For the first 45 years, football teams from various leagues in Canada could bid to compete for the championship and the trophy. In the early years, the winners were teams representing universities or local athletic associations. Since 1954, however, only teams that are members of the Canadian Football League have been allowed compete for "Earl Grey's mug". Universities now compete for their own football championship -- the Vanier Cup, named after another former Governor General of Canada, General Georges P. Vanier.

      In the modern era, the game normally pits a western champion against an eastern champion (there have been exceptions). Teams in the two geographic divisions of the league compete to declare a champion for the division, and it's these two team
      s that compete each year for the Cup.

      The host city for the game (and the associated festivities, shows and celebrations), is chosen by the league 2 to 3 years in advance. City and provincial officials, along with the local CFL team, bid to host the game. They have to show that they have the facilities to host the annual event -- a stadium that can be expanded to 50,000 seats or more, plus sufficient hotel and venue space. The winning bid normally pays the league $3 million for the privilege of hosting. The organizing committee keeps the gate receipts (to defray the costs), with any surpluses split between the city and the local team. The league normally adds the $3 million to the operating surplus generated during the regular season, and splits those profits amongst the member teams.
