The Grey Cup.

The Calgary Stampeders have won the 96th Grey Cup in , Canada on Sunday after defeating the Montreal Alouettes by a 22-14 score. Five field goals from placekicker Sandro DeAngelis were instrumental in Calgary’s victory as was the game’s Most Valuable Player, Henry Burris who scored a second-quarter touchdown. The Stampeders last won the Cup in 2001 against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in Montreal, the last time Calgary appeared in a Grey Cup championship.

The Canadian Football League (CFL) championship game was held at Montreal’s Olympic Stadium before a crowd of 66,308. Only the 1977 Grey Cup, also at Montreal Olympic Stadium, had a higher attendance of 68,318.

The half-time included performances by musicians Theory of a Deadman, Andrée Watters and Suzie McNeil.

On Thursday, Montreal quarterback Anthony Calvillo was declared this year’s CFL Outstanding Player at a player awards ceremony in Montreal.

The Cup is named after Earl Grey, who donated the trophy to honour Canada’s most successful amateur rugby team. By the time the Canadian Football League was formed in 1958, the Cup became the top prize for professional football in Canada.

CBC Television did not broadcast the Grey Cup for the first time since the 40th Grey Cup in 1952, when the championship was first televised. Specialty cable network TSN won the rights to this year’s match.

Next year’s CFL championship game is scheduled at Calgary’s McMahon Stadium.

Game summaries

Calgary Stampeders @ Montreal Alouettes

  1 2 3 4 Total
Calgary Stampeders 0 10 10 1 23
Montreal Alouettes 11 0 1 0 19

Quarterback Henry Burris passed for 302 yards and rushed for a team-best 93 years as he led the Calgary Stampeders to 23–19 win over the Montreal Alouettes. The Alouettes jumped out to a 11–0 lead in the first quarter but were held to only eight more points until the end of the game. The teams were limited in scoring touchdowns; the Alouettes’ Damon Duval scored three field goals, a 54-yard rouge, and two punt singles, with one coming from 77 yards. Duval’s counterpart, Sandro DiAngelis had three field goals, including a 40-yard one at 0:11 of the fourth quarter to give the Stampeders a four point lead, which stood until the end of thegame.

Toronto Argonauts @ Edmonton Eskimos

  1 2 3 4 Total
Toronto Argonauts 8 7 10 17 28
Edmonton Eskimos 7 0 14 0 47

The Edmonton Eskimos had a 31-point second half as they beat the Toronto Argonauts 47–28. At end of the second half, the score was close, with being 16–15 in favour of the Eskimos. In the middle of the third quarter, however, Tristan Jackson blew the game open, with an 89 yard interception return and a 61 yard punt return for two touchdowns 86 seconds apart, to give the Eskimos a 30–15 lead. The Argonauts, however, narrowed the Eskimos’ lead to 30–25 by the end of the quarter, as well as scoring a field goal 32 seconds into the fourth quarter to make the score 30–28. That would be as close as the Argonauts got, as Edmonton scored two touchdowns and a field goal unanswered, winning the game 47–28.

The Grey Cup.

The Saskatchewan Roughriders have won the 95th Grey Cup in Toronto, Canada on Sunday after defeating the Winnipeg Blue Bombers by a 23-19 score. Saskatchewan last won the Cup in 1989, and their last appearance at the championship game was in 1997 against the Toronto Argonauts.

The Canadian Football League (CFL) championship game was held at Toronto’s Rogers Centre before a crowd of 52,230. This is the first time these two western Canadian teams have met in a Grey Cup final. Despite Winnipeg’s lead during the first and third quarters, Saskatchewan’s offence proved too strong for the Blue Bombers in the end.

A half-time performance by rock musician Lenny Kravitz included the song “American Woman”, originally performed by Winnipeg band The Guess Who.

On Thursday, Saskatchewan quarterback Kerry Joseph was declared this year’s CFL Outstanding Player at a player awards ceremony in Toronto.

The Cup is named after Earl Grey who donated the trophy to honour Canada’s most successful amateur rugby team. By the time the Canadian Football League was formed in 1958, the Cup became the top prize for professional football in Canada.

Next year’s CFL championship game is scheduled at Montreal’s Olympic Stadium.

Legendary Canadian football coach Frank Clair has died

Legendary Canadian football coach Frank Clair has died

Monday, April 4, 2005

Frank Clair, the Canadian Football League (CFL) coach and architect of the powerhouse Ottawa Rough Riders of the 1960s and 70s died Sunday at the age of 87 in Sarasota, Florida, United States.

Nicknamed “The Professor” for his skills at recognising talent, teaching the game, and ability to get the most from players, Clair first came to Canada to coach the Toronto Argonauts in 1950 and ended his first CFL year with a Grey Cup championship; repeating with the Argos in 1952. He left the Argonauts following a salary dispute and ended up in Ottawa in 1956 where he took on the daunting task of reviving the Rough Riders team which were poorly run and disorganised. He led the team to an incredible 14 consecutive seasons of playoff appearances and three Grey Cups.

He retired from coaching following the 1969 Grey Cup to take over the general manager position. At that time, Clair led the CFL in seasons coached (19), regular-season victories (147), playoff seasons (17), consecutive playoff seasons (14), playoff victories (22), Grey Cup appearances (six) and Grey Cup victories (five). His winning ways continued as GM when Ottawa won the 1973 and 1976 Grey Cups. Nevertheless, he was let go in 1978 and Ottawa has not won a Grey Cup since.

According to the Ottawa Sun, former sports editor Jane O’Hara described Clair as a no-nonsense, to-the-point, type of gentleman who was short on smiles, but always seen coaching his team wearing a snap-brim fedora and standing poker-faced and erect on the sidelines.

He was inducted into the CFL Hall of Fame in 1981 as a builder and the Ottawa stadium (Frank Clair Stadium at Lansdowne Park) was renamed in his honour in 1993.

Canadian Football League to test Atlantic expansion with exhibition game

Canadian Football League to test Atlantic expansion with exhibition game

Tuesday, March 29, 2005

The Canadian Football League released details today concerning the June 11 exhibition game dubbed Touchdown Atlantic between the Toronto Argonauts and Hamilton Tiger-Cats at Huskies Stadium in Halifax, . The game is planned as a gauge for expansion east to an Atlantic city but with ticket prices at $40 and $62.50 (Canadian), CFL commissioner Tom Wright admitted they were considerably more expensive than the average price for other season-ticket holder single games which, he said, is “in the mid to high $20 range”.

At the news conference in Halifax, Wright defended the prices as necessary to break-even with the additional costs required to set-up the game and temporarily expand Huskies Stadium from 2 000 to 10 000 seats and comparable to similar, one-time events.

Events Halifax chairman Fred MacGillivray said he is confident that the showcase game will be a success. “I think the general public’s reaction to this event will tell the CFL that there are a lot of people in the Maritimes who want to see CFL football and we feel very confident we’ll have a full house for that event in June”, he told the news conference.

Hamilton head coach Greg Marshall agreed and said he thinks expansion to Halifax is viable. “Halifax is the natural site and it’s just a matter of coming up with the facility”, he said. “I think there’s a lot of interest here and I think there’s a lot of interest in the CFL to put a team here.”

Events Halifax and the CFL have also set up a number of events surrounding the game including a Friday-night kickoff party, a schools program, open team practices with player autograph opportunities and a pre-game festival.

CFL fans watch with interest how ticket sales will do when they go on sale on April 8 as the league considers expansion in 2008.
