The first game is set for TSN3.

Thespec.com is the best source for TiCats news.

Thanks but it doesnt look like the TSN is available on Spectrum. May have to be a steam and an outlaw one at that for me.

"Smalley has stood out in his first few days of practice."

Check ESPN website. ESPN carried an assortment of games on cable and ESPN3.

Great tip, 68! Just checked ESPN3 and the TiCats are indeed scheduled for Thurs night!  Unfortunately Saturdays scheduled game is other than BC.

Great news on Matt making an impact!

I didnt get a chance to watch live,  but ESPN3 should have the game archived.

Can anybody summarize (in plain language) the CFL pre-snap motion rules? I still don't get it.

Only the slot backs may "waggle" (move toward line of scrimmage pre-snap). That said, bogie,  I've exhausted my knowledge of CFL rules.

Winninpeg's preseason games will not be broadcast. I believe the CFL allows every player behind the line of scrimmage to move before the snap.
Recall the days when the CFL tried to invade the U.S. with teams in Baltimore, Shreveport, Sacramento and Las Vegas.

And you can move towards the line of scrimmage pre snap. It is just nuts.

Smalley has returned two kickoffs for 35 yards total. He returned a punt for seven yards and has a special-teams tackle and a defensive tackle. It's late in the second quarter.

Reading through the CFL rulebook I haven't found where forward motion is addressed. However:

Wiki:
Canadian football: All backfield players are allowed to move toward the line of scrimmage before the snap, regardless of their horizontal position.

CFL rulebook glossary (prepared by CFL DataBase)

Slotback (SB), Slot
The inside receivers, closest to the quarterback. Slotbacks are allowed to “waggle” or move towards the line of scrimmage before the snap.
Wide Receiver (WR), Wideout
The receivers widest on either side of the field. Normally they line up on the line of scrimmage, but can be in motion before the snap.

Toronto Star 4/9/15:

The package of rule changes approved this week represent the most significant steps the CFL has taken since the late 1980s, when the league allowed motion in the offensive backfield. Since then, up to four receivers can “waggle” and hit the line of scrimmage running.

Winnipeg released 11 players this morning. As of now, Matt Smalley remains on the team. He made some plays Saturday and was called for the 34-yard PI penalty that set up the tying field goal.

Matt released today per Corky Blake.  Team had been contemplating signing a former top CFL return man who had been released by NFL team, not sure if that happened.
