CFL Roundup 22.0

Trade Deadline

The CFL trade deadline day produced very little in terms of exciting trades. Noel Prefontaine going to the Argos drummed up a little excitement, but no other blockbusters have come down the pipe. That’s not to say that there hasn’t been some exciting player movement as the BC Lions said good-bye to quarterback Casey Printers while the Esks claimed Derrick Armstrong off of the Saskatchewan Roughriders practice roster mere hours after he was added. Armstrong was in Saskatchewan just long enough to get his picture taken. With every team in the league still in a position to make the playoffs, there wasn’t one seller out there who was really looking to do a complete overhaul. Of course, that will change in the off-season, but for now it’s all quite on the CFL trade front.

Sports Agent Article has CFL Connection

The October 18, 2010 issue of Sports Illustrated features an article about former NFL sports agent John Luchs, who among other things, discusses his alleged involvement in paying college players in order to get them to sign with him on the dotted line. Among those mentioned in the article are former CFL players Singor Mobley and R-Jay Soward, who when contacted by SI, confirmed receiving money or other benefits from Luchs. It’s a fantastic read, although as the saying goes, there are two sides to every story and the parts that were not confirmed by a secondary source should be taken with that in mind.

Here is the link.

3 Down News

A while back, we mentioned that KJE Systemshad developed an application for the iPhone that featured news from around the CFL called 3 Down News. One of the features of the app is that it links to a variety of blogs around the league produced both by professional writters as well as amateur hacks. EsksNation.ca has now been added to the blog-roll, and we are grateful for the opportunity provided by Ken Edwards. You can purchase the app for $0.99 at the App Store.
