    CFL starts at the end of June/first week of July every year. We are at "labour day" week right now, which is basically our equivilent to the "thanksgiving weekend" point in the NFL. This is where is starts to get down to the grind and teams are fighting for that playoff spot ... (By fighting I mean 75% of the league makes it).

    I wouldnt know what channels in the US carry it, being Canadian and all, but I would imagine you would be subject to the Alouettes and Argonauts given your area. I would just go off of this list here http://www.cfl.ca/page/us-broadcast-schedule

    Players you may be interested in watching if possible, as potential jumpers to the NFL are:

    Chad Owens, WR/SlotR/KR, TOR (led the league with 1,330 recieving yards last season)
    JC Sherrit, LB, EDM (Led CFL in 130 tackles last season)
    Keron Williams, DE, BC (Replaced Camerone Wake, tallies 33 sacks last 2 seasons)

    Another interesting note, The Montreal Alloutes currently own the rights to one Tim Tebow for the CFL and Anthony Calvillo has just gone down long term

    I lived in Princeton for 7 years and you would be surprised at the # of Bears fans in that area. You just have to seek them out but they ARE there. Good luck to you sir.

    You may be wrong about the 500 mile thing. I live in a small town in Maryland right between Philly and Baltimore.

    I'm about 30 minutes outside Philly. There are several Bears fans in this small town and in Delaware.

    So, if you're in South Jersey there's more Bears fans in this area than you think.

    I agree!

    I'm a native of Las Vegas, NV and as you all know, there isn't a professional sports team out here. In 1985 I jumped on the Bears Bandwagon, and never got off! Who would have known my favorite team would never win another Superbowl again, either way almost 30 years later they are still my team.

    Since LV is mostly California transplants I have to deal with "49er Nation" which makes me want to vomit. And for some reason, if you are not a 49ers fan, you are a Packers fan!!! Uhhh..

    It sucks that none of my family members are into the NFL. And all my friends are non-Bears supporters. This site does make me feel like less of an outcast!
