Announcing the #CFLThreads bracket

It’s Jan. 1, and that means it’s time for us to unveil our #CFLThreads bracket.

A refresher: From the submissions we took during the two weeks prior to Christmas, we have selected 18 of the sharpest players in the Canadian Football League.

Now, it is up to the fans to decide — via voting on our Twitter and Instagram — which player is the best-dressed in our league.
