Americans may become fans of Canadian football if NFL labor disputes wipe out the NFL's next seasonWith an NFL labor dispute threatening to wipe out next season American gridiron fans may look for different ways to get their football fix and their northern neighbors may have the answer.
The Canadian Football League (CFL) could prove an exotic alternative with its three downs, 12 players, bigger field and more backfield motion than a conga line, but it delivers the same bone-jarring action that has made the NFL America's most popular game.
The eight-team league has been around since 1958 and the Grey Cup - Canada's equivalent to the Super Bowl - will be contested for the 99th time this season.
Despite a rich past, the CFL has had limited exposure in the United States and, for the most part, remains a mystery to many Americans who are dedicated NFL followers.
But last year the CFL entered into a deal with the NFL Network to broadcast games in the United States and with the labor dispute dragging on the network is looking to add more to fill a possible programing void.

Many Americans may not.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
-General Omar Bradley, United States Army
