Best Answer

In Canadian football, teams are allowed a maximum of 12 players on the field. The positions of the players are the same as in American football, with the exeption of an additional player in the backfield. There is also unlimited motion in the backfield behind the line of scrimmage prior to the snap of the ball. All backfielders are eligible receivers, and it is not unusual to see all receivers (other than the ends) in forward motion prior to the snap on a passing play.
