CFL Versus NFL Game
 
Hey Guys:

I have been a big fan of both the NFL and the CFL for years. I was wondering what, if any interest, may come from a possible CFL all-star team versus an NFL team? Do you think that it would create any interest from the NFL? I believe that the CFL all-star team may give an NFL team a real run for their money. What do the rest of you think?

Welcome bro.
I think a game like that would be in the CFL's best interest as most Americans [that I know of] really are not interested in the CFL.

Personally I like th NFLEurope better as those players make NFL teams on a more regular basis.

It "could" happen but I don't think it will.

Hail Skins!

Welcome! I see this is your first post, I hope you enjoy the site that Matt so generously maintains. Now, Im really not trying to disrespect the thread, but here is my reply:

HELLLLLLL NOOOOOOO! There is a reason that guys play in the CFL, its because their skills are not ready for the NFL. Any game like the one described above would be a blow out. And please don't go into the fact that several players from the CFL have later gone into the NFL, that is the exception. Yes, the CFL has given us Warren Moon and Doug Flutie, but the lineman and linebackers in the NFL would run over and through any CFL team of allstars. That's just my opinion.

I have to agree with you here. I view that about the same way as I do when people claim that college teams could beat NFL teams. I think that might be more likely than a CFL team beating an NFL team. Especially if it was a team of NFL all stars. I think that a CFL all star team would have a shot against, say....the Texans, but definitely not an NFL team.

Just one person, you might have forgot: Joe Horn came from the CFL

The NFL would never go for it. Publicly, the NFL *thinks* of the CFL as a developmental league and doesn’t have NFL caliber players. To have NFL players playing CFL players would invalidate that perception…not only that but they’d be advertising the CFL by playing them.

I doubt the CFL’s best player can go toe to toe with the NFL’s best. They’d get a good thrashing.

Can the CFL's best beat USC or Texas? I'm not sure!

Is it the seeming size diference that makes the NFL better? I have watched both leagues many times and I have to be honest guys - I dont see that big a difference in talent. We are talking about the CFL pulling together 22 of its best players - players that I think are probably capable of playing in the NFL if given a fair shot. That is why I think that this game would not be near as one sided as some would have us think. I guess the only "true" way of knowing for sure is if it ever happened. Until that day, we are all just speculating. One more thing: I remember in 1972 when the Canadian hockey team was supposed to wipe the Russian team all over the ice and we all know what hapened in that series. What about the rest of you guys, any opnions?

Why would we send NFL all stars when any college team in the top 25 could whoop the all-stars from America Jr?

I used to watch the CFL back when they had a team in Baltimore. Maybe times have changed, but I could tell the talent difference easily. The CFL'ers were a clearly a beat or two slower. The window's of opportunity were larger in the CFL: QB's had more margin for error, the holes were slightly bigger for RB's, etc. The speed and power of the NFL players was just so clearly a cut above the CFL guys.

Re: CFL Versus NFL Game
 
And, armchair, you can call it speculating, but when top CFL QB's barely crack the roster in the NFL - that's gotta tell you something. Flutie lit up the CFL - yet was never anything more than a servicable starter in the NFL.

Well, if you saw my original post it was how a CFL all-star team would do against an NFL team not an NFL all-star team. I realize that some people from the US are unfmailiar with the calibre of CFL players - hence, I guess the crack about any top 25 college team beating a CFL all-star team. Have you ever watched any CFl games to make such a claim? As I mentioned, I have watched many games from both leagues for many years and I think people would be "very" surprised at how good an allstar team the CFL team could field. I never posted the question so that guys like you could take unsubstantiated shots at a league you likely know little or nothing about; I posted it to see if people would find it as interesting as I would.

49ers would kill an all star team from canada. USC and Texas could probably beat an allstar team almost all there starters are goin to play for the NFL not the CFL.

Re: CFL Versus NFL Game
 
I understand you point. I guess my question is: Do guys from the CFL who are in their option years and can sign with an NFL team get a fair shot at making the team? While Flutie is an example one can point out a guy like Warren Moon who actually "lit" up the NFL more than he did his first five years in the CFL. I just don't see how we can make an absolute claim either way until such a game happens. That's all I am trying to point out.

The best players in the CFL might make teams in the NFL but I wouldn't bet on any of them starting. The talent differnce isn't even immense. It is beyond immense. Any NFL team could beat an allstar CFL team hands down. An allstar NFL team might actually hurt a significant portion of a CFL allstar team. Score prediction: 69-3
