Great game, Calgary managed to close a 10 point lead in the last 3 minutes to force overtime, but in the end, the Redblacks are hoisting the 4th Earl Grey's cup.

Martin you mean 104th
Redblack's first Grey Cup in their third year of existence as an expansion team The last time Ottawa won a up was 40 years ago-1976
A great win for a great organization and for Ottawa

One observation and one question:
I really like the motion rules with multiple guys in motion and they all can run forward to the line.
I saw a penalty get reviewed. That's a thing in CFL? How many of those reviews do you get?

I was there for the long weekend of parties and game, and was rooting for the RedBlacks. Lots of flannel in town.
@Joker – that's an ever changing things, without looking it up on my phone, it's basically two, costing timeouts if wrong.

I saw most of the game (early hours in the UK, kept awake by a headache). Thought the Red Blacks were going to fall away again like last year against the Eskimos, but congrats to them for staying in there. It's only the second season of CFL I've seen, confused the heck out of me last year when teams kept punting the ball on the third down; turns out of course while Canada has bigger pitches and bigger teams than the NFL I'm used to, they have one fewer down to get ten yards. Makes things interesting, like being able to challenge a penalty that wasn't called. Just wish they'd add timeouts to the graphics, I've never got a clue who's got what left, though they don't seem to be as cherished a commodity as in NFL/CFB games.

Gary, the ends of each half of play in the CFL are timed differently, giving more plays than in American football, so timeouts are needed less. They also last three minutes rather than two. Usually you want a three score lead (>16 points) going into the last 3 minutes to feel safe.
