I'm wondering about a specific CFL stat: the longest attempted field goal in CFL history. I have a vague recollection of this being set by the Las Vegas Posse back in 1994. I seem to remember them attempting something utterly ridiculous - a 106-yard field goal (which they missed). I was only 10-years old at the time, so my memory is a little hazy. I can't seem to find any evidence to support my little story either. Any light that could be shed on this subject would be much appreciated. Did this (or a similar, less-exaggerated event) actually happen? If not, what is the actual stat for longest field goal attempt?
Good question. Dont know. Think Rider has longest 1 made in CFL. Ridgway and McCallum. Both made 60 yarder. Or 61. Think thats right.
I remember them playing at Taylor Field and they did not have a punter, so they would line up in field goal formation and kick the ball. I guess that would count as a field goal attempt, but it was mainly used for field position.
