What is the record for dropping balls?
Nothing great last night in the Bomber game, I counted 6, which I think is an average game?

I get so put off by the poor quality, and it really hurts the game, as it usually cost a first down, and stalls the game!

So unprofessional!
Can anyone explain it to me??
Don't we pay these guys to catch the ball??
Or is it like our placekicker, quality, that when one catches the ball , it is now a big deal !!

Umm... think of it as embracing the defensive side of the game. The defenders are great at man to man coverage!

If they dropped balls less often, they would be in the NFL - where the balls are smaller (and presumably easier to hold onto?)

The NFL is built on holding and slow play , there are too many breaks for me . Several studies have concluded that if you take the betting away most men would not watch it . Besides I support my country not some team that doesn't do anything for my city

if for no other reason the NFL bites ass because the reciever on a kick off can decline to be tackled..

wimpy loosers

Youse guys are hilarious. I enjoy football on both sides of the border. I prefer the CFL, mostly because it WAS a far more exciting brand of football when I was growing up. At that time the CFL was a pass happy league and I always preferred the passing game to the running game. The NFL at one time seemed to be run, run, run, kick.

I always believed they kept an eye on the CFL and patterned their game more upon our game.
