The clap of colliding shoulder pads echoes across the field at Citywide Field, where the London Silverbacks have rumbled into the 2012 season. One of only two Canadian teams in the GDFL—a league that encompasses more than 120 teams across the continent—the Silverbacks field the majority of its roster from London's local players and coaches, a show of pride for Canadian football surpassed only by naming one’s daughter Doug Flutie. On August 11, the team takes on fellow Ontarians the Steel City Patriots, looking to improve their standing in the Great Lakes Division.
