directed by Larry Weinstein – premieres Monday, Oct. 8 at 7:30 p.m. ET on TSNThe
unique love affair between the Saskatchewan Roughriders and their fiercely loyal
fans – known as the “13th man” – lives far beyond what happens on the field.  On
the cusp of winning the 97th Grey Cup, the Roughriders suffered a 13th man
penalty that triggered a dramatic defeat. The unprecedented twist in CFL history
shattered an entire province and left millions of Canadians heartbroken. In the
wake of the teams Grey Cup defeat, the faithful fans in Riderville staunchly
stood by the Roughriders – proving why they have forever been the teams symbolic
“13th man” on the field. STONE THROWER: THE CHUCK EALEY STORY, directed by
Charles Officer – premieres Friday, Oct. 12 at 10:30 p.m. ET on TSNThe revealing
and emotional story of how gifted Ohio-born quarterback Chuck Ealey found refuge
in Canada and the CFL in the face of racial intolerance in the United States. 
Ealey, who went undefeated at the quarterback position throughout high school
and university, signed with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in 1972 and led his team to
a Grey Cup victory in his rookie season – becoming the first African-American
quarterback to win the CFLs championship trophy. Along with giving him a place
to play the game that he loved, Canada became the place Ealey chose to raise his
family, and where he proudly remains rooted today. Ealey recounts his early
struggles and successes while his daughter Jael tries to peel away at a reserved
man to uncover missing pieces of his story. THE KID FROM LA PUENTE, directed by
Shelley Saywell – premieres Thursday, Oct. 18 at 9 p.m. ET on TSNAnthony
Calvillos inspirational journey from the gang-ridden slums of east L.A. to la
Belle Province, where he builds a family and emerges as one of the greatest
quarterbacks in Canadian football history is examined in THE KID FROM LA
PUENTE.  Narrated by Calvillos younger brother Mario, this classic
against-all-odds story examines how he pushed through repeated obstacles – on
and off the field – to lead the Montreal Alouettes to its first Grey Cup in 25
years in 2002. For the first time ever, the three-time Grey Cup champion opens
up about passing lifes hardest tests as a kid in La Puente to becoming a devoted
family man in Montreal – earning the title of footballs all-time leading passer
in the process. PLAYING A DANGEROUS GAME, directed by John Walker – premieres
Friday, Oct. 26 at 8 p.m. ET on TSNAs tensions heightened during the Quebec FLQ
conflict in 1969, CFL commissioner Jake Gaudaur not only planned to hold the
Grey Cup in Montreal for the first time since 1931, but he invited the FLQs
arch-enemy, Prime Minister of Canada Pierre Elliot Trudeau, to perform the
ceremonial kick-off at the beginning of the game. Gaudaur, a passionate Canadian
nationalist with a vision of football as a unifying force, may not have fully
understood what he was getting himself into. Russ Jackson, the Canadian-born
quarterback hero of the Ottawa Rough Riders, oblivious to the dangers plaguing
Montreal, knew exactly what he had to do. This was the last game of his
illustrious career and he was determined to beat Saskatchewan in what was
destined to be one of the greatest games in CFL history against a complicated
backdrop of political unrest. THE CRASH OF FLIGHT 810, directed by Paul Cowan –
premieres Friday, Nov. 2 at 8 p.m. ET on TSNBefore the birth of the modern day
Grey Cup in 1958 there was an annual East vs. West All-Star game. In 1956,
Vancouvers Empire Field hosted the annual game, which was followed by arguably
the greatest tragedy in CFL history. A flight carrying five All-Star players
crashed into a mountain in BC, killing everyone onboard. The tragedy sent
shockwaves through the CFL and ripped the heart out of the league. For Calgary
Stampeders Edwin Harrisons family, the impact of the crash is still felt to this
day.  Harrisons grandfather Calvin Jones was on his way to becoming one of the
greatest offensive linemen to ever play football when he tragically died in the
crash. Now, more than 50 years later, Harrison embarks on an emotional journey –
from Calgary, to Texas, to Ohio, and finally to the crash site – to piece
together a family both connected and torn apart by football. THE PHOTOGRAPH,
directed by Manfred Becker – premieres Friday, Nov. 9 at 10 p.m. ET on
TSNFootball was an important distraction for Canadians during the dark days of
the Second World War. When the Toronto Royal Canadian Air Force Hurricanes won
the 1942 Grey Cup, it boosted the morale of a country deeply affected by war. 
After their victory, many Hurricanes were sent overseas to fight, but the
brotherhood forged during the Grey Cup would live on.  The Hurricanes Jake
Gaudaur, a flight instructor who stayed behind in Canada, was devastated when
many of his teammates became casualties of war. Determined to honour their
memory, Gaudaur dedicated his life to the CFL and became the leagues longest
serving commissioner. Growing up, his daughters Jackie and Diane Gaudaur always
wondered why their fathers prized possession was a tattered photograph of his
old team. Now 70 years later, Jackie and Diane embark on an emotional and
revealing quest to discover why the Hurricanes and the old team photo were so
important to their father and ultimately to the rest of the country. WESTERN
SWAGGER, directed by Barry Greenwald – premieres Friday, Nov. 16 at 10 p.m. ET
on TSNWESTERN SWAGGER is as much a story of political drama as football.  While
the discovery of oil in Alberta solidified Canada as an energy superpower during
the 1970s and 80s, the provinces prowess on the gridiron was being ignited by
the Edmonton Eskimos unprecedented five consecutive Grey Cup titles.  With the
mighty Eskimos dominating on the field, former Eskimo and Alberta Premier Peter
Lougheed battled Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau in the boardroom over the
National Energy Program, which risked putting Albertas economy in a dangerous
tailspin and tipping the country on a brink of constitutional chaos. WESTERN
SWAGGER demonstrates Albertas unshakable determination on and off the football
field and the beginnings of an East vs. West rivalry that can still be felt
today. THE GREATEST TEAM THAT NEVER WON, directed by Christie Callan-Jones –
premieres Tuesday, Nov. 20 at 8 p.m. ET on TSNIt was a magical moment in time.
The mavericks from the 1971 Toronto Argonauts captivated a city that was
shedding its “Toronto the Good” image and coming alive both on and off the
gridiron. After a 20-year drought, Canadas oldest football franchise was
determined to bring the Grey Cup home.  Legendary CFL coach Leo Cahill spent a
fortune on a young and wild roster, fielding one of the leagues most colourful
teams with characters like Tricky Dick Thornton, Dave Raimey, Jim Stillwagon,
Gene Mack, Leon McQuay and Joe Theismann. With the adoration of a city behind
them, the team made it to the 1971 Grey Cup – only to have their championship
dream fade away on a last-minute fumble. For the first time since the infamous
fumble, the stars of the 1971 Argos reunite to relive the game that changed
their lives forever and to remember those wild and heady days in Toronto. Tony Gonzalez Game Jersey .C. —Defending

Real Sociedad 5-1 with Lionel Messi scoring twice, striking first Sunday in the
likely two-way fight for the Spanish league title after Real Madrid had drawn
1-1 against Valencia. To sweeten the debut of Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova,
David Villa played his first competitive minutes since breaking his leg last
December and capped the win with a goal. While Cristiano Ronaldo was lacklustre
when Madrid opened its title defence, Messi picked up right where he left off
after scoring a league-record 50 goals last season. With the score level at 1-1
early on, the three-time Ballon dOr winner scored two quick goals to decide the
match at the Camp Nou. “I like scoring, but I like Barca winning even more,”
said Messi. “I am just continuing to play the same way, trying to help the group
and playing so our fans can enjoy it.” Earlier in the Spanish capital, Madrid
appeared set to carry on its winning ways from last season when Gonzalo Higuain
scored in the 10th minute. But Jonas levelled for Valencia in the 42nd to give
coach Mauricio Pellegrino a hard-earned draw on his debut. Ronaldo, who set a
club record with 46 league goals last season, was uncharacteristically subdued
and failed to manage a shot on goal. The Portugal forward acknowledged that
neither he nor the team played well. “I am not 100 per cent but I hope to get
into shape as soon as possible,” he said. “It wasnt a good game for us. We
played poorly in the first half, better in the second. We had chance but we
couldnt finish them off. “We just have to keep our chins up and continue
forward.” Barcelona hosts Madrid in the first leg of the Spanish Supercup on
Thursday. Also on Sunday, Real Betis defeated Athletic Bilbao in a 5-3 shootout
at San Mames stadium after the Basques had fought back from a three-goal deficit
to draw level. Atletico Madrid drew 1-1 at Levante. Vilanova had a perfect debut
for a coach called on to protect the legacy of Pep Guardiola, who led the team
to 14 titles in four seasons with Vilanova as his assistant. Vilanova opted for
Pedro Rodriguez and Cristian Tello in his starting 11, and both forwards had
stanndout performances. William Moore Camo Jersey. But it fell to
defender Carles Puyol to get Barcelona started in the fourth minute. The
defender showed no signs of his knee surgery that kept him out of the European
championships when he rose up to head in Xavi Hernandezs corner kick. Chori
Castro levelled for Sociedad in the ninth, but Messi dashed any thoughts of an
upset two minutes later when he received a pass from Pedro, went between two
defenders and looped a left-footed shot while falling into the back of the net.
Messi struck again in the 16th. Tello returned Messis rebound with a low cross
for the scoring ace to poke by goalkeeper Claudio Bravo. “On the first goal I
had a little bit of luck. We like to combine close to the area and it worked out
well, and Tello was great on the second,” Messi said. Tello then picked out
Pedro unmarked on the right side to slice home his cross in the 41st. With the
result beyond doubt, Vilanova sent on Villa for the final 15 minutes. Moments
after receiving a standing ovation, Villa brought Barcelonas fans back to their
feet when he fired in Andres Iniestas pass in the 84th to seal the victory. “I
am very happy but this has only just begun,” said Vilanova. Madrid dictated the
pace early on and Higuain soon put his team ahead. Higuain scored on the third
attempt after goalkeeper Diego Alves made back-to-back saves to deny the
Argentina striker. Just when Valencia appeared clueless in attack, Jonas
levelled for the visitors with a header. Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas and
defender Pepe collided in an attempt to reach the ball, with both lying prone on
the pitch for a few moments before restarting play with both looking groggy.
Pepe was replaced by Raul Albiol at halftime and was sent to hospital for
observation. The score level, Valencia regained its composure and succeeded in
frustrating a Madrid attack that last season established a league scoring record
with 121 goals. Madrid coach Jose Mourinho downplayed the draw. “We didnt play
well but we played well enough to win,” the Portuguese said. “We had enough
occasions to score, but throughout the season you always draw some games.” ’ ’ ’
