3 Most Iconic CFL Moments

The Calgary Stampeders won the 106th Grey Cup last year by defeating the Ottawa Redblacks 27-16. They are not looking so good this year as they have already lost four matches. If you were planning to wager on Calgary Stampeders with betting Canada, then you may need to think again and choose a stronger side than them.

Joe Kapp vs Angelo Mosca

The feud between Joe Kapp (BC Lions) and Angelo Mosca (Hamilton Tiger-Cats) started long ago in the 1963 Grey Cup. Surprisingly, that feud resurfaced 48 years later in 2011.

The source of that feud was Mosca’s controversial hit on Willie Fleming in the 1963 Grey Cup. Fleming was forced out of the game due to that hit, and the Lions had lost that game by 21-10. Joe Kapp hadn’t forgotten that incident even at the age of 73; he swore at Mosca at the CFL Alumni Legends Luncheon. The two then tried to engage in a physical fight on stage while the others separated them. That clip of their fight went viral on the internet.

BC Lions won the 82nd Grey Cup

In 1994, an American team featured in the CFL title game for the first time and they looked good enough to take the Grey Cup home. Baltimore Football Club and the BC Lions met each other in the final in front of a 55, 097 Vancouver crowd. It was a thrilling encounter from the beginning to the end and football fans got to see a great spectacle of sports.

The initial points came to BC Lions, but Baltimore responded strongly to take a 17–10 halftime lead. The match entered a very interesting stage when over a minute was left in the 4th quarter and both the teams were deadlocked at 23-23.

That’s when Lui Passaglia missed a brilliant opportunity to give his team a lead with a 37-yard field-goal attempt. However, Baltimore also failed to gain points on their next possession and so Passaglia got another chance. And this time, he did get the winning points by a 38-yard field goal. This way, the BC Lions got to keep the Grey Cup in Canada.

Eskimos claimed their 5th straight Grey Cup

The 70th Grey Cup final was hugely significant for the Edmonton Eskimos who were aiming for their 5th straight Grey Cup. But, they had to achieve such a feat in front of a hostile crowd at the Exhibition Stadium, plus the weather was also terrible that day.

Eskimos’ 5th straight Grey Cup victory looked in jeopardy at one point when they fell behind 14-10. Then, Warren Moon gave a spectacular performance to make a comeback and Eskimos registered a memorable victory by 32-16.
