Best Answer

There are two divisions, East and West

ex. if the fourth place team in the east finishes with more points than the third place team in the west, they get to take their playoff spot thus, they would compete for the CFL Western Division Championship and it becomes possible that there are two eastern teams in the Grey Cup game.

The playoffs work like this. The top three teams make the playoffs. In the first round, the second and third teams play in the division semi-final while the first place team gets a bye to the division final. The winner of the division semi-final plays the first place team in the division for the chance to go to the grey cup. This happens in both conferences until the grey cup where the champions of the divisions play each other for the grey cup.

Why CFL bulbs are in tubular in shape instead of being as typical bulbs?

CFL tubes work on the principal of fluorescent effects produced by electrons. Electrons emitted from the cathode in CFL tubes are incident on the chemicals pasted on inner walls of the CFL tube and visible light is produced there as a result of fluorescence. Now, since the electron beams travel only in straight lines, the CFL tube has to be linearly straight for optimum incidence of electrons on the walls of CFL device.

Which eastern conference CFL team used to be in the west?

Edmonton Eskimos ================== Wrong. Winnipeg Blue Bombers. I think this is the third time the Bombers have been in the Eastern Conference. On each occasion, it has been because one of the four Eastern teams folded. The above answer of the Edmonton Eskimos was probably given as a result of confusion. The Eskies this year (2008) became entitled to bump the third place Eastern team out of a playoff spot. (This is called the crossover.) But the Green and Gold remain in the Western Conference.
