CFL News in 1982[edit]

After the 1981 season, the Montreal Alouettes folded. However, one year later in 1982 the CFL granted the city of Montreal a new franchise called the Concordes, which assumed the Alouettes' history and player contracts.

The 1982 Grey Cup game between the Edmonton Eskimos and the Toronto Argonauts attracted 7,862,000 television viewers, the largest television audience in the history of Canadian television.

NBC broadcast CFL games in the United States for three weeks during the 1982 NFL players' strike.[1]

The Edmonton Eskimos won their fifth straight Grey Cup championship.
