The original Alouettes team won four Grey Cups and were particularly dominant in the 1970s. After their collapse in 1982 a Montreal CFL team was immediately reestablished, playing first as the Montreal Concordes and for a single year as the Alouettes once more. A second folding in 1987 led to a nine-year hiatus of CFL football in the city. The current Alouettes franchise is a 1996 relocation of the Baltimore Stallions, the lone success story of CFL's American expansion. The CFL considers all clubs that have played in Montreal as one franchise in their league records but do not recognize the Baltimore franchise, or its records, as part of the official team history.
The latest incarnation of the Alouettes have proven dynamic on the field and were arguably the best CFL team of the 2000s; they took home three Grey Cups in that decade bringing the total for all incarnations of the franchise to seven. Major stars of the recent era include Mike Pringle, the CFL career leader in rushing yards, and quarterback Anthony Calvillo, who leads all of pro football in career passing yards.
