With the 2007 season fast approaching, CFL Broadband wants to give fans an opportunity to revisit the top games of the 2006 season.

Starting this weekend, fans will be provided five games in which to choose from in the Canon Fan Poll. The game which receives the most votes will be available free of charge on CFL Broadband the following week.

The game that receives the second-most votes will carry forward the following weekend in addition to four new games. The promotion will last five weeks.

Games chosen will follow the course of the 2006 season. This week’s nominees include:

Game 9: Winnipeg 17 @ Montreal 27

In the CFL season opener, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers show early signs that they won’t be a pushover in 2006. But it’s the Montreal Alouettes who pull out their 10th-straight victory in season openers, thanks to rookie Chip Cox’s two interceptions.

Game 12: Edmonton 14 @ Calgary 24

In another edition of the Battle of Alberta, Calgary Stampeders quarterback Henry Burris throws two late touchdown passes to rally his club over the defending Grey Cup champion Edmonton Eskimos.

Game 15: Calgary 14 @ Edmonton 18

In the second of back-to-back games, the Eskimos get pay back against their arch rivals on home turf. Burris looks to rally the Stampeders to another come from behind victory, but Edmonton’s Shannon Garrett ends the threat with a late interception.

Game 16: B.C. 24 @ Saskatchewan 32

The Saskatchewan Roughriders rebound from a humiliating 45-28 loss against the B.C. Lions in the season opener. Saskatchewan scores two touchdowns in the final minute of regulation to give the Lions their first loss of the year.

Game 17: Hamilton 22 @ Calgary 23

With the Hamilton Tiger-Cats desperate for a victory, the Stampeders pull out another late victory thanks to kicker Sandro DeAngelis’ 45-yard field goal on the game’s final play. DeAngelis leads a soccer-style celebration following the kick.

Polling will be conducted from 3 p.m. ET on Friday to Monday morning. Fans are limited to one vote per day.

CFL Broadband is currently offering 2006 regular season and post-season games for $3.95 CDN

good stuff

riders vs lions

AWESOME promotion ... I think I'll be voting for Calgary vs Hamilton, but I'll watch whichever ...

i wouldnt vote for any hamilton game.

Never can go wrong with a Lions game.

I'll vote for the Hamilton game in which the Big Blue shut them out in Hamilton. hehe.

Calgary vs Hamilton was a nailbiter .... came down to the last play of the game.

What day will we be able to watch the game?

Unless I read it wrong, we were supposed to start voting Last Friday and we will be able to watch the game this weekend.

Where do we vote?

Calgary -Edmonton game!

R&W2005 Love your picture!

Calgary VS Edmonton Labour Day Classics are always a good choice.

Hamilton and Edmonton had some good games...

In the battle for last place!

Both won by Hamilton, I'm more than happy to point out :smiley:

So, no Stamps fans voted? 3 games involving the Stamps (including a Labour Day game), and they finished in the last 3 spots. Not surprising that a Riders game wins ...

I never even figured out where I could vote ...

Middle of the home page on the right side.
Cannon fan polls.

Ahhhhhh .... was a bang-on case of me not looking hard enough ... At least I'll know for next time!

anyone else having trouble watching this archived game on the broadband?....

it keeps playing for a few mins then starting over...then playing for abit longer next time then starting over again.

if this is what watching a live game on this service is like, i feel bad for people paying for this.

I had problems as well!

It played for a while the I got a screen telling me I was connected!
GEE thanks for tellin me :thup:

theres really no point in me voting for these games anymore, since its so screwed up that i cant watch them anyways.

It may not be worth it to you, but if you skip to around 30 minutes into the file/broadcast, it seems to work from there. Something within the first 30 min. must be corrupt. I've watched from the 30 min. file mark to around 50 with no problem.

I may come upon additional problems, but so far so good.
