TORONTO -- TSN's Engraved on a Nation airs eight unique documentaries that bring you some of the great stories - some renowned and others less told - in Canadian Football history, capturing what makes our game so unique. Following each episode, CFL.ca brings you the best of your comments from around the web in our Armchair Film Critic.
Playing a Dangerous Game
'Playing a Dangerous Game' was the fourth documentary in the series, reflecting the parallels between the Canadian Football League as well as Canada as a country as they each tried to pull together a population in the midst of the FLQ crisis. Award-winning director John Walker melds politics and sport to tell the story of the 1969 Grey Cup in Montreal, played at a time and place where great danger was present.

@CreationGuy Seems like the TSN series 'Engraved on a Nation' has a common denominator of Grey Cups that Saskatchewan lost.

@ZephyrGamgee At the height of the FLQ's rebellion, the 1969 Grey Cup was able to unify Canada as the Roughriders beat the Roughriders. #CFL #Documentary
@PamDamoff "Russ Jackson is the greatest Canadian football player of all time" Engraved on a Nation (see @sean_omeara thats why I was so excited)
