Video: The memorable 1971 Argonauts
(Aug. 25, 2018) The ’71 Argos was a team that captured the imagination of the city of Toronto like no CFL team has before or since. A team “made up of characters with character,” huge on talent and with the swagger to match. This team may have been the most popular Argos team, but we like to think of these guys as the most notorious bunch of characters that ever played in the CFL. The team had such mystique, that a film “Mavericks: They were a The Story of the 1971 Argos” by Christie Callan-Jones was made and featured on TSN during the 2012 Grey Cup period.
These guys all loved the game of football, playing together, the city of Toronto and for a coach none of them (or the rest of us) will ever forget.
Alumnus Bryan Crawford to head up Canadian Open
(July 27, 2018 – thespec.com) OAKVILLE — When Canada’s biggest golf event returns to Ancaster next June, Bryan Crawford will be able to walk to work. Like his grandfather did.
The former football star for Queen’s University played for the Argos from 2005-11. He officially began his tenure as Golf Canada’s RBC Canadian Open tournament director last week.
At this week’s Open at Glen Abbey, his title is virtually in name only as he’s heavy into information-gathering mode, inhaling the structure, logistics, nuances and contacts of his new job, while Bill Paul, Golf Canada’s chief championship officer, orchestrates what might be the last of the Abbey Opens.
Alumni featured at the Edmonton game
(July 7, 2018) Argo legends Damon Allen (2003-07) and Hank Ilesic (1983-89, 1990-93) participated in the ceremonies prior to the Argonauts 20-17 victory over the Edmonton Eskimos. Both played for the Argos and Esks in their distinguished CFL careers. Also in attendance in the alumni suite was Mike Campbell (1989-94).
At the home opener
(June 23, 2018) Argo legends Bob Bronk (1982-86) and Mike Eben (1968-69, 1971-77) greet fans at the Argo Shipyard prior to the 2018 home opener vs. the Calgary Stampeders. Argonauts alumni will be featured each game under the new ownership of Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment.
