CFL 2012 Celebrates 100 Years of Grey Cup Championship Games

CFL 2012 Kicks Off With Hamilton vs. Saskatchewan

The road to the 100th Grey Cup Championship begins in Canada’s Steel City as the Hamilton Tiger-Cats host the Saskatchewan Roughriders as part of a Kick Off Weekend Friday night doubleheader. With the addition of QB Henry Burris, Hamilton as been posted as one of the favorites to challenge for CFL supremacy in 2012. The Roughriders are a different story as they are in a mini rebuilding process after going 5-13 last season.

CFL pigskin betting fans get a rematch of the 99th Grey Cup Championship during the second half of the Friday night double-dip. BC Place in Vancouver will be rocking as the British Columbia Lions will raise their 2011 CFL Championship banner prior to hosting the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

East vs. West Rivalries Highlight The CFL Weekend Schedule

As Canadians celebrate the Canada Day National Holiday Weekend, CFL football will be a big part of the festivities. On Saturday night, the Toronto Argonauts sail into Commonwealth Stadium to battle the Edmonton Eskimos. This game features the return of QB Ricky Ray to the Alberta Capital after he was unceremoniously traded to the Boatmen in the off-season. Ray led the Eskimos to Grey Cup victories back in 2003 and 2005.

Week One CFL action wraps up on Canada Day as the Stampeders host the Montreal Alouettes on Sunday at McMahon Stadium in Calgary. Stamps fans will be decked out in red and white pride as their hometown hero’s battle the Alouettes in a rematch of the 96th Grey Cup Championship. This is one of the more heated rivalries in the CFL as these two clubs have battled to a 11-9 record, favoring Montreal, over the past twenty meetings.
