CFL -- Week One -- Time for Kickoff

We're shaking off the cobwebs and dusting the corners of the blog, making ready for another year of the CFL, with the always hopeful note of keeping our momentum up beyond the Labour Day classics.

Something we admit that at times we haven't been very good at delivering on, but at the start of the season hope springs eternal and with a renewed commitment we're determined to see the season to the very end.

Training camps have wrapped up, the final cuts made and the rosters set, with a few potential additions hidden off on the taxi squads awaiting a chance to show their stuff for CFL crowds sometime in the future.

A few new rules to jazz things up for 2015 will have us (and most likely one or two coaches along the way) scratching heads for the first few weeks, while everyone settles in for the long march to November.

There's some room for optimism for the CFL this season, the new stadiums of Winnipeg, Hamilton and Ottawa head into their second year of operation (a little newer in the case of Hamilton) and the Toronto situation once again seems to be settled for now, though there remains work on a long term fix for the Argos and a football home.

For the head office, the 2015 season gets underway with Canadians love of the three down game still a strong affection, while hockey continues to be the passion for many, the CFL still claims the heart holding a strong grasp on the second spot of sports that Canadian follow.

After a long winter, the first game of the regular season brings on summer and with it fall, the two season spread that takes us to Grey Cup Sunday in late November.

Before we get there though, there's going to be a lot of football to follow, lets get to it...
