    “When I entered pro football, I had no idea that I would be leaving almost 15 years later, said Pringle. ”After three teams and many highs and lows I’ve been blessed to play football for 30 of the 37 years I’ve been alive. To my teammates, coaches and fans throughout the CFL, thank you for your support and your friendship, I will miss you all.”

    “I’ve known Mike for many years and we’ve enjoyed great success together,” said Eskimo Head Coach Danny Maciocia. “His career should be seen not solely in terms of the records, but also for the incredible dedication he brought to the stadium every day. Mike Pringle was a very special player.”

    He's from Cal State-Fullerton.
    Should have known, way back in 1960 when we drafted Richie Lucas Number 1, that this would be a long, hard ride. But who could have known it would be THIS bad?

    He was originally drafted by Edmonton and they told to enjoy this (his first season) season as it would be his last. One coach, can't remember who, told him he was the kind of player that wouldn't last long in football.

    From that moment on Pringle made it a point to be the best damn RB he could.

    Too bad he missed out on the all time TD record. His was the same situation as Alexander. They didn't put him in for the last drive, thus costing him the record. At least he's tied with George Reed.

    Actually the CFL is older than the NFL ergo it is real football.

    The NFL is styled after the CFL.

    I can't stand the CFL, but it is a much better game than the NFL style of ball.

    Section 130 Row 26: Watch your language, this is a family board. If you don't like the topic, don't bother posting in the thread.

    Whoa dude....calm down...no use arguing with an ignorant Canadian about the merits of the CFL vs. the NFL. It is OBVIOUS that the CFL is a much inferior product, with much inferior players in a much inferior market. That is why it is aptly named the Canadian Football League.

    You can say what you want, when you want...the bad stuff is censored anyway, but going off on someone regarding them not being your father etc is not going to prove anything other than the fact that you are an insecure little kid.

    Take a breather and lets get back to business.
