1995 CFL season

I am looking for a complete schedule of the 1995 season. Any help would be appreciated. I can't find a thing on the internet, or at least have not as of yet....Thanks

That was a nice stroll down memory lane. Most people in retrospect don't think much about the US expansion, but it vertainly added a little variety to the schedule.

Thank You very much I really appreciate it. :smiley:

I was thinking about the US expansion the other day. Most people call it a mistake, but it did provide the league with the Montreal Alouettes. Without the US expansion, and assuming we'd still lost Ottawa (a safe assumption), the league would have dropped to 7 teams ... and who knows where from there. Instead, we have a great success story with the Alouettes and the rebirth of football in Quebec.

The negative was the American teams had a unfair advantage. They were allowed to field a All american line up. Baltimore had the right people in charge to fully take advantage of the situation. There should be a asterik beside the Stallions Grey Cup Victory.
They should have allowed Calgary to use the same rules concerning the non imports. At least in the championship game.

to late now

hang on, i'll dust off my flux capacitor.

Winnipeg's defense was pretty bad that year...

WAS TO YOU WAS THAT UNFAIR?

It was an interesting time. I got to see games in Baltimore, Shreveport, and Birmingham, and there were some good crowds in Baltimore and Shreveport (Birmingham had roughly 3000 for the game in a HUGE, cavernous stadium). There was a lot of interest in Baltimore and the NFL was very smart to relocate the Browns there (there was a large market who wanted football). The AlamoDome is the only major sized CFL capable venue in the US, built that way for the CFL expansion. Sacramento was close to moving out of Hornet field and building a new stadium exclusively for the Gold Miners, but the state didn't want to commit the necessary public funds. Shreveport actually tried to sue the flying Gliebermans for the team (they were owed a considerable amount and felt the team was an asset), but when the league closed the Southern Division (i.e. the US teams) that became moot. There were fan petitions and season ticket subscription drives to convince the league to stay, but with interest only in Shreveport and Sacramento, and to a lesser extent in San Antonio, it was not to be. If US expansion is done right, it will work, and I feel that this league needs to grow if it is to survive much longer as something more that a very parochial, regional minor league.

I would like to see expansion to some smaller markets just south of the border. Not sure of the city sizes but is there any decent markets in Montana, South Dakota, Idaho ?????

Man there are alot of smaller market cities that could do well in the usa but I think the cfl is scared to come back too the usa due too the NFL.I think they feel the nfl would make a move into canada if they tried again.Also the imort ratio would hurt cfl teams from any future expansion into the usa.That rule would be against the usa labor laws.but i think its a canadian league and i respect the laws of the land?

I remember watching back then a few of the games but finally getting back into it since the Arena League folded. I am reading “A Passing Game” and up to the 1980 season. Very interesting history and I am preparing to find out more history and enjoy the future of the game. I also like to see which AFL players are currently in the CFL because I know them, but am just getting more attached to the game as it is fresh and exciting. I like the rules and the player motion. Actually will watch the CFL over the NFL this season when they are on at the same time. Still don’t know which team to follow so just following them all. :smiley:

CFLJacques, you should read Consentino's first book "Canadian Football: The Grey Cup Years", which is very different in tone from the one you are reading. He begins with the origins of the game right up to 1969. "A Passing Game" begins right where "The Grey Cup Years" ends, but the two are separate works.

I agree with you.
Done properly and only in the northern most US states, where there is no other major league sport and the CFL must therefore be the only game in town.
Like maybe Maine, Syracuse, Rochester or in the Dakotas.
A 35,000 seat stadium is a must with an advance minimum 20,000 season ticket base guaranteed for three years.
The franchise fee must be $25M US with a security deposit of $15M US.
To deal with the import/non import situation which of course will not apply due to US labour laws, the non import situation would be for instance the state which the team is located in.

The labor laws wouldn't allow that either.

You can't discriminate against someone based on where they are born or where they live.

However, I have heard that MLS is somehow getting away with some version of the import rule...so I dunno...

11 years later, we've just completed getting the full season scores / schedule / standings of the league going back to 1958 on the official website of the Canadian Football League:

Oh man, that's awesome!! I'm glad this was finally done. Nice touch with the logos and some old games have attendances noted as well. You included the NFL and AFL interleague match ups in exhibition games from back in the day too. Thanks for letting us know, sully. Now to just add box scores for every single game lol.

wow, take a look at week 2 schedule in 1966. thats just crazy man

I also didnt remember that the east only played 14 games then, compared to 16 for west. Too lazy to go through year by year to find out when that changed

I believe they use to play Saturday and Monday back to back.

The West played 16 games in 8 weeks.

Even the playoffs were different.

The East adopted the 16 game season in 1974.

The CFL went to a single game playoff format in 1973.

1972 was also the last December Grey Cup.
