H Argonaftes Tou Toronto

In Canada we have the CFL which is the Canadian Football League. It is football in the North American sense and its roots and history in Toronto is deep. I think it is cool that the logo and name of the team is tied to Greek history/mythology:


History:

Football...as the modern fan would know it, began to be played in the early years of the 20th century. In 1908, Lord Grey, the Governor General of Canada, donated the Grey Cup, to be awarded annually to the best amateur football team in Canada. Initially, the Argos made their first appearance in the national final in 1911, where they lost a defensive struggle to the University of Toronto 14-7. But in 1914, the Double Blue, led in part by star Jack O'Connor who was the leading scorer that season, won the first of what would be many Grey Cups when they whipped the University of Toronto 14-2.


Team Logo and Uniform:












Greek Argonauts:

The CFL is very big in the western cities of Canada like Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg, etc. In Toronto they get ok crowds but television following is huge. Of course, though, they have to compete against the Toronto Maple Leafs (NHL), Toronto Raptors (NBA), and the Toronto Blue Jays (MLB) and you know how HUGE hockey is in Canada, right?

In Montreal, they sell-out every Allouettes game but their stadium only fits 20,000. However, they use the Montreal Olympic stadium for big games and they sell it out...about 55,000 people.

I love the NFL. My favourite team are the Buffalo Bills. I have been to a few games.

Why don't you like the CFL? Do you know much about it? It is actually a faster game than the NFL.

200 ευρω; Μα τον Τουτατη!

Από ότι βλέπω και τα μπλουζάκια δεν πάνε πίσω. Ευχαριστώ αλλά δεν θα πάρω.

Φτώχια καταραμένη σε μισώ

Σοβαρά τώρα, είναι πανάκριβα για τα δικά μας βαλάντια.

Ευχαριστώ Leaf για την ενημέρωση.

Τώρα που το θυμήθηκα, τις μπλούζες του ΝΒΑ ποιος τις κατασκευάζει;

Έχω μια του Garnett από τους Timberwolves, την είχα πάρει πριν χρόνια. Έχει πάνω ραφτώ το σήμα του ΝΒΑ και τα σήματα της Diadora ( ραμμένα και αυτά ). Αυτή είναι αυθεντική μπλούζα η είναι μαϊμού όπως αυτές που μου ανέφερες παραπάνω;

1. The NFL has the best football players in the world

2. I have never lived in Canada

3. I like the NFL rules more since it is a 100 yard field and also the goal posts are behind the end-zone and not in front which gets in the quarterbacks way when they want to throw the ball.

Thats my reason.

ok...ok...you don't have to take it personal

The CFL field is much larger and we have 3 downs instead of 4. Thus, you see more running and long yard passing.

Of course the NFL has the best football players in the world.

Leaf, σαν αυτή τις φωτογραφίας.

Κάτι άλλο, ένας φίλος παλιά που είχε πάει Αμερική μου είχε πει ότι τις μπλούζες των Raiders δεν μπορούσε να τις φορέσει οποιοσδήποτε στον δρόμο, δεν ξέρω δεν θυμάμαι μου φαίνεται ότι τις φορούσανε συμμορίες η κάτι τέτοιο. Ξέρεις αν ισχύει αυτό;

Πάντως παλιά που το είχα ψάξει λίγο ωραίες μπλούζες είχε και μια ομάδα hockey με σήμα ένα πιγκουΐνο.
