Good day, CFL fans! Aren't you pumped that the 2012 season is right around the corner? I know I am.
I have a question for the many football gurus who frequent this forum. What advice do you have for someone who already knows the basics of CFL football and wants to get a deeper understanding of the game? I have read many threads on this site over the years. Many members have really sharp insights into the game. What was your path to football "wisdom"?
Some of the things I'm already doing to improve my football "IQ":
- Try to watch at least one game as week on tv. Sometimes get to watch more.
- Read all the CFL coverage in my local paper and on TSN's website.
- Follow the discussion on knowledgeable fan forums. :lol:
What else did you do to better understand the game? Do you focus on just the o-line vs the d-line battle when watching games on tv? Did you start going to local CIS matches to see a simpler style of football that was easier to read? Did you play lots of Madden on your Xbox? What thing(s) led to a better understanding?
Thanks for your time. Go, Riders!
