The only team with few Grey Cup wins is the Red Blacks with one. However Ottawa Rough Riders had 9 Grey Cup wins. Bud Grant coached us to 4 wins in 5 years.

Looking forward to rewatching 1988, I remember Mike Gray's interception vividly.

Might rewatch the 2001 game just to see that lineup play again, even if the messed the bed.

Will watch the 84 GC, I was too young to appreciate the game at the time, but I remember my dad had friends over for that game.

Will watch 2011 game, mostly because I was overseas and only listened to it online in the middle of the night and never bothered actually watching it because I knew the outcome.

Come on now, at their current pace it will only take around another 185 years and the Riders will also have 11 GC victories....of course we will have added another 25-30 by then.

Jumped so high I almost hit the ceiling. Girlfriend told me to calm down even. I was having none of it. Game saver and I knew we had it then.

This is great news.  My BlueSky PVR shocked me when I discovered it deletes recordings after 1 year!  I went to watch our GC for the zillionth time in Dec and it (and everything older) was gone!  Playoffs too.  I was soooo miffed.  I still have my low-def copy on computer PVR, but I liked watching the hi-def on BlueSky.  I finally got the computer to work with hi-def in 2020 but I didn't have a chance to re-transfer it from BlueSky before deletion.  Grrrr...

It'll be amazing to watch the really really old games using this new program!!  From what I read on this it's all going to be free (no PPV)?!  Awesome bonus for the fans.

Don't know if anyone else has been watching the games, but I'm having a blast. Watched the Fog Bowl yesterday, very interesting how it was all handled once the fog REALLY rolled in.
It's interesting the similarities, and the differences to today's game, and all I can say is Kenny Ploen ?.. wow !! Playing offence, defence, everything !!

I've been watching the 40's and 50's so far.  Very interesting to see how the game differed.  The mud bowl was just nuts.

I'll keep watching and discuss more as I see interesting things.

One thing that is shocking so far is how few people are watching as per the youtube Views counts!  Under 100 views for most/all games so far?  Many at only 60?  Yikes.  There's really that few CFL fans left?  You'd think any real uber fan would want to watch at least a few of these things, especially ones with their team in the game.  I'm not even close to being the uber-est fan out there, and I'm watching all of them!

Anyhow, I'm really pleased the CFL put these things out!  The quality and production is top notch given the source material.  I think that's a great PR move and a nice reward for the loyal, suffering, fans; even though most aren't appreciating it.
