There has been a lot of talk about changes to be made regarding the CFL game. I think I found "The one".
I was listening to CKAC, a Montreal radio station with great sports programs, and a commentator made a suggestion...
At first I thought "What??". And that will also probably be your reaction. But then, thinking about it for a few minutes, it just made perfect sense.
Here goes : The field stays the same size but goes from 110 yards to 100 meters. That's right : CFL goes metric.
The game wouldn't change much. First downs would be 10 meters (about 11 yards), but to change the unit of measurement would solidify the fact that the CFL is its own game and not a CFL sub-league. :cowboy:
I know, now you're saying "What?? Football is played in yards, not meters". Yes, of course. But why not change it, make it more Canadian and solidify the CFL identity. The CFL game, is a full grown game that doesn't envy any other league or game.
And, by the way, the Als are just crushing the Bloats... 7-0 baby! :rockin:
Im not completely against it but how do you compensate for the extra yard for a first down? Then if all the other dimensions are kept like 110 yards to 110 meters + 20 meter endzones......that makes the field 15 yards longer and 6 yards wider. There are a few stadiums where it wont fit!
