No lead is safe.

I rest my case.

With all of the less subtle differences between the two games characteristics, the most befuddling is the
anticlimactic ending to most NFL games compared to the ?you never know ? intrigue in the final minutes of most CFL games.
If you truly appreciate both games as I do , you can?t really disagree.
You never know with new rules regarding finally reviewing PI calls(after last seasons crime against the Saints) maybe there?s some hope.

As a big NFL fan this true.

The NFL can be very boring at times. The good teams beat the bad teams 99% of the time. I like our game because upsets actually happen, teams come from behind sometimes, leads late in the 4th Q are not always safe.

The CFL is more unpredictable that's for sure.

The CFL is more exciting than the NFL for all of the reasons mentioned above,
and it's my favourite sport. Period. Exclamation point!

I find all football exciting and fun to watch, as long as the team/talent is comparable... the thing that I enjoy the most about the CFL is the cerebral part of building of a team, how you build your roster week to week, deal with ratio, account for injuries, and how teams deal with talent relative to dollars... I just find it all so interesting and fun to follow as there is always an obstacle that you have to somehow overcome...

whereas the NFL, it's easy, or at least significantly easier, to handle these things, other than ratio, when you're flush with cash... it's just a matter of writing another check... I don't even follow my Chiefs during the off season, I just wait until the first regular season game to see what's changed, lol...

it's kind of like my Chevelle... there are nicer ones out there than mine but, the majority of them were probably built by a custom shop, or at least had the majority of the work done by a professional, and have a price tag of over $250K... I built my Chevelle myself... all of it...  the things I didn't know how to do, I learned... I didn't farm out the work to someone else and just pay for it, anyone can do that...
