Honestly, I think that the CFL team would get blown out just about every game.

When you look at this scenario, you have to consider the NFL's roster size. It is ****ing huge, not to mention every team has a scout team as well. Your looking at sixty or so odd players, of which probably less than 40 will ever see much, if any game time.

Truth is, every NFL team has a ton of room for prospects and developmental players (one of the reasons why NFL Europe was never very successful, an NFL "farm team" will never work).

If you have any talent, I mean any talent or marketable skill, be it size, speed, arm strength, ect ect you're going to be somewhere on an NFL roster or scout team somewhere.

Look at who gets cut in NFL camps, its' never someone who is expected to produce, it's always someone who isn't good enough to play special teams (the place where guys who are "too small" or "too slow" end up), doesn't have the talent to stick around as a developmental prospect, and doesn't have any real skills to speak of.

Remember, these guys get to try out NINETY guys now in camp. Unreal. The NFL takes a look at just about everyone coming out of college, if you end up in the CFL you just aren't very good.

If we want to make an NHL comparison, it's not NHL-AHL, it's NHL-ECHL. The NFL has an AHL on it's roster/scout team already.
