2010's All-Decade Team Unveiled

November 19, 2020 - Canadian Football League (CFL) News Release

TORONTO - After five months of fans casting their ballots, the Canadian Football League (CFL) announced and celebrated the premiere players and head coaches of the past 10 years (2010-2019) through the first-ever All-Decade Team presented by LeoVegas. The First and Second teams, each featuring 29 individuals, were decided by fans, a selection committee and a media panel.

Fans were treated with a special 20-minute show that showcased the first and second All-Decade team as well as interviews with players and instant analysis.


Also unveiled on the show was the Game of the Decade presented by Dr. Oetker Giuseppe Pizzeria. Fans voted in a tournament-style bracket with the final two games vying for the crown of Game of the Decade. The final vote was between the Montreal Alouettes and Saskatchewan Roughriders in 2010 on Canada Day, facing off against the 105th Grey Cup game between the Calgary Stampeders and Ottawa REDBLACKS in Toronto.

In the end, the game on Canada Day in 2010 was the fans' choice for Game of the Decade. The contest featured 105 total points, overtime and a highlight reel catch by Montreal's S.J. Green - that will go down as one of the most impressive catches of all-time. For highlights from that game, go to

"It's pretty cool," said Bo Levi Mitchell. "I appreciate everybody that did vote, I definitely feel blessed. Just to have Ricky Ray and Wally Buono kind of give me that nod was a compliment in itself. To be a part of it, to be the quarterback named for it is definitely very special and hopefully I can, you know, be in the conversation in another decade."
