Who do you think is truly the greatest TD scoring machine of all time in CFL history? All three of these gentlemen are CFL legends, regardless of the results. To qualify, in case you havent figured it out, the player has to have accomplished 137TDs.
I picked George Reed. I am a Rider fan obviously, but I didnt choose him for that reason, although I'm sure it does help . I choose him because his TDs were a lot harder on the body than Milts were. And although I really respected Mike Pringle's game, I didnt really like him, for w.e reason. So that leaves George Reed for myself.
I voted Reed because he accomplished the feat when teams only played 16 games and didn't play for a ridiculously long time. It's incredibly hard to compare a running back to a receiver though, and im sure you can make a case for Milt, the only thing he's missing is a Cup.
I’m biased, so I said Stegall, but the TD record is just one of many he holds, so for that reason I gave it to him.
Most TDs in a career - 137 (tie with George Reed and Mike Pringle)
Most TD receptions in a career - 133
Most TDs in one season - 23 (2002)
Most TD receptions in one season - 23
Most yards per catch in a season - 26.5 (1998)
Most yards receiving by a Bombers receiver - 13,587
CFL Most Outstanding Player - 2002
Named as receiver in top passing tandem in CFL history together with Khari Jones 
Also, Stegall has done it in fewer games, Reed was at 203, Pringle 188, Stegall is at 167.
I went with Reed, and yes, it was a homer pick. I gave him the nod because he didnt taunt or grandstand-- he just played his game, and was great at it. You saw true sportmanship from Reed, he defines the word class.
I completely agree with that. George Reed is the classised guy I've ever met. I'll have to go with him for that same reason. And you know I'm a Rider fan, and he was on that great '66 team,so that plays a small role in my decsion.
Unlike many people voting, I can honestly say I have a completely unbiased point of view. I picked Reed, and here's why:
Reed did it at a time when there were fewer games played per season. (I didn't have a game count, so if PIGSEYE is correct, this argument is apparently flawed.) But he also did it on a team whose quarterback became the league's all-time leading passer by a huge margin over the others that played in his day. Yet Reed still put together huge rushing numbers and set a record that lasted longer than most of today's players have been alive.
Stegall will break the record, but will it stand for as long? Likely not.
////i had and have the great pleasure of watching both of these very talented players perform.....George Reed was in a class by himself....also had one qb. for most of his career ...Lancaster and Reed were like hand in glove on the field....you would have to say if Milt had the same situation for the Bombers over the years....who knows how many tds. he would have had....Both great players at their respective positions.....but i'm goin with Milt.....no bias of course.... :thup: :rockin:
But that's where you're wrong, piglet. I'm not discrediting Stegall, whatsoever. It's not his fault he's played his first class career for a 3rd rate organization that hasn't been able to build a Championship calibre team around him in his long and illustrious career. Discredit the bummers? Absolutely. It's a shame they'll send him into the sunset as a Hall of Famer with no Grey Cups. Discredit Stegall? As I said, can't really blame him.
