CFL 2023 season

omg we are exactly 3 weeks away from first pre-season games. training camps are starting in two weeks. i know some of you don’t care about pre-season but i like it. i like knowing who the new players are and what the depth options are at each position. can’t wait for game threads. my beer isn’t the same without football lol.

the full schedule is posted in the CFL Schedule Calendar and i will link entries to game info as the season goes on.

I don’t mind the pre-season it’s good to see the odd hidden gem come out of it.
I would prefer to have two extra games instead of a pre-season.


It’s too bad TSN isn’t broadcasting all of them.


3down nation reported that only 44k watched the 2 rounds of the draft due to the leafs game. Sure hope this early start to the cfl season doesnt get buried with edm and toronto in the playoffs. Even though they both lost the first game they are favoured to move on to the next round.
Watched sportsdesk late after the draft was done. The first 20 min was leafs. Then the dallas game. After that the nba playoffs. The second half of the hour started with the leafs again. The cfl draft made an appearance at the 44min mark and had 2 quick stories and done by the 45 minute mark.
I know they did a lot to lead up to the draft but it seems to be tossed aside pretty quick.

yea sportsnet is basically toronto sports and they don’t care about the cfl.

This was TSN sportsdesk.
If it was sportsnet, i would have been thrilled to see a whole minute coverage of the cfl.


oh that’s even worse. TSN is a supposed partner. :roll_eyes:

TSN is bad for the league. They should tender it each year as TSN puts the CFL at the bottom of it scheduling.

Tender it? no one else has the capability.
Sportsnet only has facilities in Toronto to broadcast the Jays and Raptors, when they broadcast Jays and Raptors away games they get the other teams feed but use their own announcers.
They have contracted out their NHL broadcasts so they can use the CBC facilities.
Global wouldn’t have the capability. CBC is getting out of the live sports.
Sports in Canada is now almost entirely on the two sports networks.

If you watch the Jays, Raps, the CFL or the NHL you need to subscribe to TSN or Sportsnet.
You can also stream both of them and that’s the future

Do you really think introducing logical analysis will change the anti-TSN rants?

No not at all.
I think TSN does a great job and when I watch the CFL in the US on ESPN2 or ESPN+ it’s the TSN feed and it’s professional.
I may get tired of the non-stop yapping of Glen Suitor but I just mute it when he’s on

I was referring to sniferdog’s post, not yours.
