CBC reporters from across the country get you caught up on what to expect this year in the CFL

Quarterbacks, a new commissioner, a loophole in the league's drug policy, and a lot of reporters picking Hamilton to win this year's 103rd Grey Cup.

If you missed Friday's live chat with CBC reporters from across Canada, you can catch a replay of the streaming conversation above.

Malcolm Kelly of CBC Sports hosted Friday's chat with Douglas Gelevan in Montreal, Adam Hunter in Regina, Karin Larsen in Vancouver and Jeff Green in Hamilton.

The panel covered the tenuous quarterback situations in Vancouver and Montreal, asked if the new rules will increase scoring or create a parade of flags, and dipped into the drug policy that has come under fire for a loophole that enables performance enhancing drug use without penalty for university players entering the league.

The panel also made their picks for the Grey Cup, with all members picking Hamilton to emerge from the East Division, two of which believe the Tiger Cats will break the trend of bridesmaid at the CFL's big show.

Watch and listen above.
