The CFL ball IS NOT bigger. This is a myth. The CFL ball only looks fatter because of the white stripes. I own a regulation NFL ball and have placed it next to a CFL ball -- and the dimensions are identical.
In years gone by, I played amateur football in two different leagues using CFL and NFL rules respectively. When I quarterbacked, the official NFL ball was easier to grip and I could throw forward passes farther downfield. The CFL ball was easier to punt and would invariably travel farther than the NFL sphere. I don't know about actual measurements of the respective fully-inflated balls, but I can say without any reservation that the balls were not identical and performed differently.
Yes it is the same length but the NFL ball is slightly narrower. Its the same as an NCAA ball. I find it harder to throw but I played C and NT so I can't to begin with! Harder to longsnap and from what I heard a little easier to kick as there is more to make contact with.
No significant difference in size between the two.
no cfl is a wider ball but is not as long, i find it harder to throw and is just stupid
nfl is random
Marks balls are way bigger than that so it doesnt matter.
NFL is four downs and cfl is three therefore having more passing. Also the cfl field is longer(120 yards and 20 yard endzones) compared to NFL which is(100 yards and 10 yard endzones). Finally the cfl ball is larger.
CFL-3 downs NFL-4 downs
The teams that share a name between the NFL and CFL are the Detroit Lions of the NFL and the British Columbian Lions of the CFL.
CFL. It must be short for RoughRiders. There is no team called the "Riders" in the NFL. However, there is a team called the Raiders.
They can if the get drafted.
Half time is 15 Minutes in Canadian football (CFL) as well as college ball. However it is 12 Minutes in the NFL.
national football league
There is little data available regarding the average size of a CFL player. There is, however, less discrepancy in size in the Canadian Football League than in the NFL of the United States. Canadian football tends to focus more on speed and basic athleticism than the NFL, which encourages specialized players.
yes they are bigger than high school.
The CFL focuses more on speed and quickness rather than brute strength as in the NFL. Many CFL players are talented (they have excellent football skills) but are considered too small and undersized to play in the NFL. Many players who were originally thought to be too unskilled to play in the NFL have proved their skills in the CFL and have had successful NFL careers thereafter. Extremely speedy players enjoy the much less cramped field in the Canadian game, which favours their style of play.
