    Canadian football - What is this?

    Seriously, this is the most bizarre thing I have seen in a football game yet. I knew there were a few differences in the rules, but is this even the same sport?

    If the other team would have recovered they still would have lost because if you don't get the kicked ball out of your endzone it isn't a touchback, it is a single, one point for the opposition.

    And if they offense kicks it out of the endzone, they also get a point?

    Re: Canadian football - What is this?

    Yeah, basically if the kicked the FG wide but out of the endzone they would get a single point...known as a rougue. Basically instead of running it out to force OT, he tried to kick it out so they would not give up the point, I dont think he really thinking the other team would just kick it back.

    They obviously need good kickers on their teams.

    I'm Canadian, and I've never said it like that. I bet it bothers me more that it does you.

    After the game we'll pick up a cube of Lucky, a 2-6, and a pack of DuMaurier's and have a bloody good time.

    To kill the next day's hangover, I'll mix up some wicked Caesar's!
