Toronto Star sports columnist, father of four, regular on The Reporters on TSN and TSN Radio. This is my brain in a jar.

CFL will survive or die on strength of its quarterbacks: Arthur — WINNIPEG-Every CFL quarterback is a miracle, in his own way. Anthony Calvillo used to practice in a Las Vegas parking lot. Ricky Ray's first start was with the Fresno Frenzy, in the Arena Football League's developmental league. Henry Burris' first NFL start came against the then-dominant Tampa Bay Buccaneers defence.

CFL commissioner Jeffrey Orridge doesn't inspire in Grey Cup address: Arthur — WINNIPEG-The Canadian Football League's new slogan, accompanied by a logo so blocky that it could spring an accountant for a 75-yard rushing touchdown, is presumably not meant to reflect on its new commissioner.

Jeffrey Orridge gave his first address as CFL commissioner. Maybe he'll get better.…

Ottawa’s CFL nightmare now distant memory: Arthur — Ottawa loved the Rough Riders for over a century, and then the decline: no winning seasons after 1979, the last Grey Cup in 1976. And horrific ownership turned them into a joke. But the Redblacks are in the Grey Cup, and no one's laughing at them now.

NFL: Bruce Arthur’s Week 12 picks — Look, I'd love to write a complete NFL Picks this week, but the Grey Cup is occupying rather a lot of my attention, what with the costumed crazies and the accessible athletes and the bitter, though not embittering, Winnipeg cold. You should come to a Grey Cup sometime. They're pretty fun.

Good Hank, Bad Hank still searching for approval: Arthur — WINNIPEG-So the coaches were asked the annual Grey Cup question about whether they'd let their players have sex before the game, as is tradition. Rick Campbell, the coach of the Ottawa Redblacks, went first.

NFL: Thanksgiving Day game picks — Other than American Thanksgiving being held at the wrong time of year - Canadian Thanksgiving is held while the autumn leaves haven't all fallen, and the temperatures are milder - it's mostly the same.

Newton, Brady and the NFL QB dance: Arthur — It is a big week for talking about quarterbacks in America, which means it is a week in America. Aaron Rodgers? Maybe he is struggling because, as reported, random people wonder whether the fact that he is dating actress Olivia Munn is a factor, as opposed to, say, a shoulder injury.

We cheer, we boo, we play, we win: Arthur — What did it have to do with sports, really? There was a soccer match in Paris on Friday, of course, and a sad hateful young man whose life had been reduced to delivering death and pain to strangers showed up 15 minutes after the match began with explosives strapped to him, and was turned away by security.

Argonauts hit end of long, lonely road: Arthur — HAMILTON-Afterwards the Toronto Argonauts felt all alone, them against the world. "That might be the worst call I've ever seen in football," said one to Martin Wright, the defensive lineman who was called for roughing the passer late in the fourth quarter. "Hey, can we still get fined for saying s--- about the refs?"

Super Bowl 2012: Ghosts of the past hover around New England Patriots and New York Giants — When it was over, and the sweat and blood and questions had all been scrubbed away, Justin Tuck could finally rest. It was a couple hours after Super Bowl XLII, in which Tuck had vaulted from relative obscurity to be the best player on the field, crashing though schemes, wrecking plans, shaking the pillars of the previously undefeated New England Patriots.
