How CFL works?

The CFL is the Canadian Football League, a league of professional Canadian Football teams. It works like any other sports league. The trophy for the championship in this league is called the Grey Cup, which was first awarded in 1909. Canadian Football is similar to American Football except the field is much bigger, both longer and wider, with end zones twice as deep. Twelve players are on the field at any time. In Canadian Football, the team must make 10 yards in three downs to retain possession. The ball is always active on every kick--there are no fair catches or touchbacks. A team can score a point by kicking the ball into the end zone and then preventing the other team from bringing it out. This is called a rouge.
