The Alouettes overcame a 16-point deficit in the 2009 Grey Cup, marking the third largest comeback in #GreyCup history overall and the largest ever in the 4th quarter. Montreal trailed 27-11 with 7:05 remaining before scoring 17 unanswered points for a 28-27 victory. #CFLEncore

In 2009, led by RB Wes Cates and dual-threat QB Darian Durant, the Riders rushed for 191 yards on 22 carries for an average of 8.7 yards, second in #GreyCup history. Hamilton holds the all-time record with 8.9 yards per attempt (24 carries, 213 yards) in 1985 vs. BC #CFLEncore…
Only 4 offensive linemen taken in picks 1-20, plus Wilfrid Laurier continues to be a hot spot for defensive linemen. Some trends of note from tonight:…

OL Mattland Riley becomes the first Saskatchewan player selected by the Riders in Round 1 since 2012, when they choose OL Ben Heenan 1st overall. Heenan spent 3 seasons with the Riders, winning a Grey Cup in 2013. #CFLDraft #CFL

The last quarterback selected as high as Nathan Rourke was Jesse Palmer, who also went 15th overall in 2001.…

Offensive lineman Theren Churchill, selected 9th overall by Toronto, is the first Regina player selected in Round 1 since OL Brendon LaBatte went sixth overall to Winnipeg in 2008. #CFLDraft #CFL

DB Adam Auclair, selected 6th overall by Ottawa, became the 11th player from Laval to be drafted in the first round since 2005. Auclair’s selection is the highest for a defensive back since Chris Ackie went 4th overall in 2015. #CFLDraft

Virginia’s Dejon Brissett is the 7th receiver the Argos have drafted in the first round, joining Brian Jones, J.F. Tremblay, Matt Duboc, Jock Climie, Paul Fedor, and Ted Smale. #CFLDraft

East Carolina’s Jordan Williams (selected by BC) is the first LB to go first overall since Henoc Muamba in 2011. It’s the fifth time in #CFLDraft history that a linebacker has gone No. 1. #CFL

Pierre Lavertu (2014) was the latest 1st overall pick by Calgary. Others include Miguel Robede ('05), Steven Morley ('03), Bruce Covernton ('92), Kent Warnock ('86), Jerry Dobrovolny ('83), Frank Kosec ('81), Dave Kirzinger ('78), Wayne Holm ('70) and Harvey Scott ('62) #CFLDraft…

In 2001, Toronto selected LB Kevin Eiben in the 4th round, 26th overall. A 5-time East Division All-Star and 3-time CFL All-Star, Eiben quickly became one of the #CFLDraft’s biggest steals, finishing his career with 722 defensive tackles – 9th on the all-time list.

It’s #CFLDraft Week! Did you know that Lui Passaglia and Bob Cameron, the #CFL’s all-time leaders in games played, were both first round picks? Passaglia was drafted 5th overall in 1976 and played 408 games, while Cameron was picked 6th overall in 1977 and played 394 games.

Darian Durant's 481 passing yards were the second highest single game total of his career. Durant would go on to lead the CFL in passing in 2010 with 5,542 yards, including a 500-yard performance on Sept. 17 vs. Calgary #CFLEncore…

The Riders and Alouettes combined for 105 points on July 1, 2010, marking the third highest scoring game in #CFL history. Toronto and BC combined for a record high 111 points on Sept. 1, 1990, in a 68-43 Argonauts victory. #CFLEncore

Jamel Richardson was the recipient of Anthony Calvillo’s record-breaking pass in 2011, as Calvillo became pro football’s all-time passing yards leader. That year, Richardson recorded 1,777 receiving yards, the 9th highest single season total in #CFL history #CFLEncore

Randy Ambrosie issues statement on Brandon Bridge hit

CFL commissioner Randy Ambrosie released the following statement on Sunday regarding the hit on Brandon Bridge.

TORONTO — CFL Commissioner Randy Ambrosie released the following statement on Sunday regarding the hit on Brandon Bridge during the Western Semi-Final:

“The high hit on Brandon Bridge late in the Western Semi-Final (play 137) was clearly a missed call. Watching this occur, and seeing via the ‘ref cam’ that the on-field referee’s view was blocked, my reaction is we need to look this off-season at allowing the Command Centre to make the call on plays such as this one, clear matters of player health and safety,” said Commissioner Randy Ambrosie. “We need to do more than admit an error. We need to search for a solution.”
