CFL gives fans new window into #CFLCombine



As part of the CFL Combine this past weekend, the Digital Team took to new ground, live streaming multiple events via the new live streaming app Periscope and brought fans right into the action at Combine weekend.

Released just this past week, Periscope is a new app that allows anyone to live stream through their mobile device and then archive the videos for later.  Naturally, this was a perfect fit with the Combine festivities kicking it off with a stream of the OL and DL Bench Press where we witnessed a 41-rep performance from Montreal LB Byron Archambault which was the second best All-Time at the Combine.




On day 2, “Scopers” had a chance to witness a combination of OL-DL 1-on-1s which brought fans RIGHT into the action!


  This was followed up by RB and LB 1 on 1s which were very exciting and competitive!  


We then went to the WRs and DBs 40-Yard Dashes where we saw DB Tevaughn Campbell set the Electronic Time Record with a time of 4.355.




Finally, the main event of the CFL Combine, the WR vs. DB 1-on-1s.  An action-packed showcase of athletic talent.



We all want to thank everyone that tuned in for our first broadcasts on this new platform. It was an incredible experience and a great way to you closer to the game.  All those that chatted and offered suggestions, we will  be taking all of those into account and hope to improve our use of the platform next time out!
