The NFL Network continues to load up on non-NFL programming.
14 Canadian Football League games will be shown from now until early November, starting with a Thursday night game, July 1. (Montreal @ Saskatchewan.)
We don’t know much about the CFL other than Chris Berman highlights, but the game
features three downs instead of four, 12 men aside instead of 11, and a playing field that’s 65 yards wide and
110 yards long, with end zones 20 yards deep.
We also get the impression the caliber of football is higher than the Arena Football League, which the NFL Network also airs.
Of course, I won’t be able to watch any of the action because I just moved to an apartment without a clear view of the southern sky. (I’m not going to get over this and don’t care who is at fault. Work it out with Time Warner. It’s a total embarrassment the league-owned network still isn’t available in the city the league headquarters is based in. Sorry.)
