The Grey Cup (in French: Coupe Grey) is both the name of the championship of the Canadian Football League (CFL) and the name of the trophy awarded to the victorious team. It is Canada's largest annual sports and television event, regularly drawing a Canadian viewing audience of about 4 million.[1][2] The 2007 Grey Cup game was held in Toronto on November 25, 2007, where the Saskatchewan Roughriders defeated the Winnipeg Blue Bombers 23-19.

History

In 1909, the Grey Cup was donated by the then Governor General of Canada, Earl Grey, to recognize the top amateur rugby football team in Canada. By this time Canadian football had become markedly different from the rugby football from which it developed. Over time, the Grey Cup became the property of the Canadian Football League as it evolved into a professional football league. Amateur teams ceased competing for the Cup by 1954; since 1965, the top amateur teams, playing in Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS), have competed for the Vanier Cup. See also: 1908 in sports, 1910 in sports and the list of years in sports. Baseball The Pittsburgh Pirates defeat the Detroit Tigers, four games to three, in the World Series. ... The Governor General of Canada (French (feminine): Gouverneure g̩n̩rale du Canada or (masculine) Gouverneur g̩n̩ral du Canada) is the vice-regal representative in Canada of the Canadian monarch, who is the head of state; Canada is one of sixteen Commonwealth realms, all of which share the...

The Grey Cup has long served as an unofficial Canadian fall festival generating a large amount of national media coverage, celebration and fan interest from coast to coast. Many fans travel from across the country to partake in the week of festivities that lead up to the game. Historians date the carnival-like activities associated with the game back to 1948, when fans of the Calgary Stampeders dressed in western gear, square danced, flipped flapjacks, partied in the streets of Toronto and rode a horse through the lobby of the posh Royal York Hotel. For the defunct hockey team, see Calgary Stampeders (hockey) The Calgary Stampeders are a Canadian Football League team based in Calgary, Alberta. ... The Royal York surrounded by Toronto’s modern towers. ...


With the addition of American-based teams beginning in 1993, the possibility of the Grey Cup being hoisted by a team south of the 49th parallel loomed large. In 1994 the Baltimore CFLs (as they were referred to then because of an injunction issued on the behalf of the NFL to prevent this team from using the COLTS name) played in the Grey Cup in Vancouver against the home B.C. Lions. A late fumble on the goal line by Baltimore quarterback Tracy Ham gave the B.C. Lions a chance and Lui Passaglia connected on a game-winning FG as time expired, driving the sellout crowd at BC Place into a nationalist frenzy. This patriotic nationalism would be tested further in 1995 when the Baltimore Stallions returned to the Grey Cup against the favored Calgary Stampeders led by Doug Flutie. Baltimore won the game 37-20 and took the Grey Cup south for a bittersweet parade as Art Modell, owner of the NFL Cleveland Browns, announced his move to Baltimore for the 1996 season only one week before the Grey Cup. After the 1995 season, American-based teams, many of whom were running into financial problems, folded. Only Baltimore remained and they relocated to Montreal. Douglas Richard Doug Flutie (born October 23, 1962) is a retired American football and Canadian football quarterback. ...


The Grey Cup has been broken several times. The trophy was broken in 1978 when Tom Wilkinson and Danny Kepley dropped it, and in 1987 when a celebrating Edmonton Eskimos player sat on it. It was again broken in 1993 when it was head-butted by Edmonton's Blake Dermott. During the victory celebration immediately following the 94th Grey Cup game in 2006, the winning BC Lions accidentally broke the cup from its base, which contains the engraved names of the players on each years' winning team. It was repaired the following Monday.[3] Other notable events include a 1947 fire which almost destroyed the trophy and a 1969 theft in which the trophy was held for ransom.

In November 2006, the CFL confirmed that they were entertaining offers from corporate partners for the naming rights of the Grey Cup.[4] Though the naming rights would apply to the Grey Cup championship game and not the trophy itself, many objected to the idea, claiming that the league should not compromise a national historic treasure for short-term profit.[5] Naming rights are the right to name a piece of property, either tangible property or an event, usually granted in exchange for financial considerations. ...


On November 25, 2007 at the conclusion of the game when the cup was hoisted by the victorious Saskatchewan Rough Riders team, a Snowbirds squadron decal could clearly be seen on the underneath of the cup. Evidently, a member of the Snowbirds team ‘zapped’ the cup. ‘Zapping’ is humorous tradition amongst Canadian Forces squadrons, a squadron decal is covertly placed on some item of importance belonging to other squadrons of units in the Canadian or other countries military.

Broadcasting

First broadcast on the CBC in 1952, for many years the Grey Cup has been the largest television event in Canada, regularly drawing a combined Canadian viewing audience in excess of 4 million on the CBC (over-the-air, in English) and RDS (cable, in French).[1] Starting in 2008, cable network TSN will be the exclusive provider of the Grey Cup for English viewers while RDS will remain the provider for the French broadcast.

From 1962 through 1986, CBC and CTV simulcast the Grey Cup. In 1962, 1965, 1967, 1968 and 1970, CTV commentators were used for the dual network telecast, while in 1963, 1964, 1966 and 1969, CBC announcers were provided. From 1971 through 1986, one network's crew called the first half while the other called the rest of the game. After the 1986 season, CTV dropped coverage of the CFL and the Grey Cup. From 1987 through 1990, the CFL operated its own syndicated network, CFN. CFN had completely separate coverage of the Grey Cup, utilizing its own production and commentators. In the United States, the 1992 and 1993 games were on SportsChannel America, while ESPN2 televised the game from 1994 to 1997. Today, the CFL has arranged a loose association of regional sports networks (such as NESN, Comcast Sportsnet, and FSN New York) and stations to cover weekly broadcasts and the Grey Cup on a tape-delay basis.[6] The 1962 Canadian Football League season is considered to be the 9th season in modern-day Canadian football, although it is officially the 5th Canadian Football League season. ...
