How does Canadian football work?

Only the officials `work` the game, one of which, known as the Referee takes primary charge over the game and all other officials. He will position himself behind the offensive team. Second in command is the official known as the Umpire behind the defence. There are also sideline officials and deep defensive officials whose numbers depend on complexity of the game and age of players. Player safety is the number one concern of each official and is paramount to all else.

Typically there are a minimum of 3 officials, the third is the Headlinesman

additional crewmembers are increased by the following assignments:

Line Judge (4 officials)

Back Umpire (5 officials)

Back Judge (6 officials)

Side Judge (7 officials )

There are also a number of minor officials working the game required are

stick crew of 3 of which one will handle the downsbox under the direction of the headlinesman and referee.

a timekeeper

optional minor officials comprise a backup timer and a picket (4th stick) which will line up on the opposite side of the downsbox, a penalty card marker and a score keeper.

In a wrestling shoot when shooting in for a take-down does the front or rear knee hit the mat first?

In amateur wrestling, like in a high school or college, it depends on who's teaching really. I was taught to lead with your leading knee to save on time. This is known as the shot, and is usually for a double leg or single leg take down You can also touch your back knee first, which is typically for a move known as the high crotch.

In American football there are 11 players on the field at one time but how many players make up the entire offensive side?

As far as the professional game is concerned, there can be a maximum of 45 players dressed for a National Football League game. Of these players 11 start on the offensive side and 11 start on the defensive side. In today's game, no player starts on both offense and defense. So that would leave 23 players on the team that do not start. Two of those players are the punter and placekicker. That leaves 21 players and of those players the breakdown of offense to defense is usually very close. So, of the 45 players that dress for a game, it would be safe to say that 21-22 of them are offensive players and 21-22 of them are defensive players.

How many players on field in the CFL?

In Canadian football, teams are allowed a maximum of 12 players on the field. The positions of the players are the same as in American football, with the exeption of an additional player in the backfield. There is also unlimited motion in the backfield behind the line of scrimmage prior to the snap of the ball. All backfielders are eligible receivers, and it is not unusual to see all receivers (other than the ends) in forward motion prior to the snap on a passing play.

Are referees allowed to be related to players that are playing in the game?

Most associations will not allow this - any that allow it do so at their own peril. It may be required at a very low level of ball in isolated communities where officials are hard to come by as an example where parents may find themselves fullfilling these duties. Where necessary, it is up to the league to alllow or disallow this practice.
