The goalpost consists of a post, crossbar, and two uprights. The post that holds the uprights is 10 feet tall and placed approximately 80 feet from the sidelines. The crossbar, which is 18 feet, 6 inches in length, sits atop the post. The uprights extend 30 feet above the crossbar.

The width of a Canadian football field is 65 yards, its length is 110 yards, and the end zones are 20 yards deep. The goal posts are on the goal lines.
About the same as in the NFL.
A Canadian football field measures 110 yards from goal line to goal line, and 65 yards wide. The end zones are 20 yards deep.
a cfl field is longer it is 150 yard(with end zones) and nfl is 120 yards with end zones so cfl field is longer
A CFL end zone is 20 yards from goal line to dead line and 65 yards wide.
CFL fields are 110 yards long without the end zones. With the endzones, they are 150 yards.
NO! A defender that intercepts a ball can not attempt a drop goal. This is not legel since the ball must be 'behind the line of scrimmage'. This implies that only the offense could do it... Sort of. Never really thought about it. The drop kick is simply a field goal. A field goal is a kick through the uprights taken from the ground (rather then a punt, which is taken from the hand). A drop kick is simply a field goal that is only on the ground very momentarily... That's correct. In rugby, a dropkick can be attempted at any time, but in American football, kicks can only be taken from behind the line of scrimmage. If a defending player intercepts, his team has no line of scrimmage -- it wouldn't be established for the next play until he was tackled. Canadian football still allows kicks from anywhere on the field, however, so in the CFL, a defender could attempt a dropkick.
