The Canadian Football League: The Phoenix of Professional Sports Leagues, Revised Edition

The Canadian Football League: The Phoenix of Professional

North American football was born in Canada in the 1860s. For decades, though,the growth of Canadian football was slow to change from its rugby traditions. In recent decades, it has been in the shadow of its largest competitor, the National Football League. Although hockey is held up as Canada's number one sport, the CFL has enjoyed as rich and storied a tradition in Canadian sports history. This book is not the usual general history detailing on-field accomplishments, Grey Cup winners etc. Instead, it combines an historical look through 2003 with discussion of continuous themes which have shaped the League. These include the role of the Canadian player, competition from other pro sports, the media's role in creating an image of the CFL, Canadians' attitudes towards pro sports, and how the CFL continually struggles to survive - often in spite of itself.

End Zones and Border Wars: The Era of American Expansion in the CFL

End Zones and Border Wars: The Era of

End Zones and Border Wars is the story of the CFL's ill-fated periodof expansion into the United States during the early to mid-1990s. It was a time filled with intriguing characters, from JohnCandy to Nick Mileti to Pepper Rodgers, the coach who loved everythingabout the Canadian game except the rules and the teams. Witha cast of investors who are hopeful but unfamiliar with the game,bizarre stories emerge, from the Las Vegas Posse practising in theparking lot of the Riviera to the Shreveport Pirates camping outabove a barn full of circus animals.The CFL's attempts to push the Canadian game into expandedterritory brought both heartbreak and victory, with the 1994 GreyCup victory of the BC Lions coming alongside the quick decline ofevery American club under low sales and resistance to new rules.The CFL survived these turbulent times to the harsh realization thatit is a game for Canada alone, breaking through to a promising newera for the venerable institution.

QUEEN SENSE 24"x24" Canadian Football League CFL Neon

QUALITY MATTERS. This is NOT an ordinary neon sign like others, it's a NEW neon sign with our unique HD VIVID PRINTING Technology! Why neon signs with Vivid Printing?

Environmentally friendly: Other neon sign with regular printing uses chemistry that form poisonous layers which was exposed to air and then released to the air.
