Live from antiquated McMahon stadium in Cowtown.

17-9 Stamps w/ a couple minutes left in the 1st half.

Rod Black drew the short straw tonite - paired with the vociferous Glen Suitor rather than the dour and reluctant Duane Forde.

Rod really on the ball tonite (sic) - continually missing I.D.'s of receivers, tacklers and penalty calls. Obviously he's sick bad on identifying injuries but that's an art - one that obviously can't be taught to this dudsack.

Key for Suitor is to ignore the idiocy of the guy beside him and just do what he normally does. Plod out a gameplan regardless of score or change of direction.

Now tied at 17 as I type - D'Onte Spencer busts a return for a massive TD return. Maher had the angle but ran out of leg speed as Spencer destroyed his tackling angle!
WAITING FOR A  MIRACLE - 27 YEARS, COUNTING!

Good game, tonight.  Lots of scoring so far in the season.  Nice to see.   :thup:

Stamp players dropping like flies (tonite's game for sure; but they lost some good ones prior)

However, the Stamps have a great formula for 'Next Man Up'; unparalleled in our league.

If bombers, riders, ticats, argos, als had this kind of player loss they'd be tossing in the towel 'HEY MICK' - cuz some of these teams, even the starters aren't as well-drilled as the stampede backups!

These two teams are as good as they get in the CFL. It's an amazing collection of talent.

Insane - most of the game looks like a Milt Stegall/Geroy Simon hi-lite reel . . . .  :cowboy:

This has been a crazy entertaining game ... but that extra point went through the uprights did it not??? Why didn't they review? Maybe they did silently like other scoring plays but to me that looked good even with tough camera angle.

Doesn't seem to matter now but that was a huge point to miss out on.

The Wretchblacks are finally running out of steam!

Now, everyone will focus on the Grey Cup champeens being winless entering Week 3 . . . .

Agree.  It went thru - thankfully, it won't make a difference.

Kinda rough, but hey. How many East Division teams will be able to peel a point off of Calgary this year?
