In Canadian football, a missed field goal will earn a single point if the defending team cannot catch the ball in bounds (in the end zone) and get the ball out of the end zone. Usually it is run out but this was the last play of the game and the defending team just wanted to get it out period.

"rewarding a team for being unable to get the ball out of their end zone"

I consider it being rewarded if a team chooses not to get the ball out of the end zone so they can get an automatic placement on the 20. In the cFL there is no option to do that, you run it out or you give up a point.

Nihilism, NFL doesn't reward players unable to get it out of the endzone. Look up a "safety" and you'll understand.

In a way it makes more sense than the US version of rewarding a team for being unable to get the ball out of their end zone.


But in the NFL they aren't "rewarded" for not getting it out of the endzone. I rarely see them kneel down because they can't get out of the endzone. They just don't think they can get to, or past, the 20 yard line. If they take a knee it goes to the 20. They could easily get it out of the endzone but they may get stopped at the 5 or 10 yard line. So they take it to the 20 to have more room to work. It's a different situation.

Dumbest statement ever.

messy, messy sport. Even if this doesn't happen often, you NEVER get something this ridiculous resulting in point scoring/ victory in rugby.

@AustinJay - If that wasn't a terrible attempt at trolling, I don't know what is.

Anyways, Nihilism and boeingguyu787 explained it perfectly, it very rare this happens as people are often able to run it out of the end zone and avoid the single point.
Also, I find the CFL extremely popular where I am, we even often fill up other peoples stadiums.

It's very simple. In Canada there's no touchback rule. If you don't get the football out of your end zone on a kick or missed field goal it counts as a single point (a 'rouge'). Normally this means running it out to avoid getting tackled in the end zone for the point, but on rare, desperate occasions it can involve trying to kick it out even if it gives possession back to the kicking team. In a way it makes more sense than the US version of rewarding a team for being unable to get the ball out of their end zone.

Bizarre? I don't even know what the f*** just happened. Why in God's name did they just punt a missed FG back to each other?

I swear to God some Canadian got stoned as hell one night and said "Hey, you know American Football? I've got an idea".

Rammo the CFL isn't nearly as popular as the NFL. The only people that really pay attention to their teams are folks in the prairies... Some care when their teams makes it to the grey cup but even then meh. They had the grey game here in toronto and if someone didn't tell you that a huge CFL game was going on, you would have never known. The buffalo bills drew more hype ffs.

The league is so drating stupid, there's only 8 teams and 2 manage to share the same name it's so un-original.

@rammo34

The CFL is very popular, although not nearly to the degree that hockey is. Personally, i'm not a huge football fan and only watch a few Lions games every year, but I watch nearly every Canucks game. The CFL is more popular than the NFL, though, if that's what you were wondering.

In Canadian Football, if you kick the ball through the endzone, you get 1 point. That is what the original kickers (Montreal) were trying to do. They failed. If the other team (Toronto) were to kneel, they would also forfeit a point, and thus lose the game. So they had to get it out. And he tried, then the Montreal player kicked it back in, then Toronto tried to kick it out, but failed, and Montreal recovered for a touchdown. In the CFL, you have to give a kicker 5 yards of space when he touches the ball, otherwise it is a penalty, and that's what the second bit of the video was all about. If a penalty were to be called against Montreal, the play would have to be restarted.
