i uno, look spretty tough near the end of the season

Toronto and Montreal won't be as good as everyone thinks they may be this year. But the opener in Calgary will be a tough one for us to win. I predict we lose the first game out west, then take the first two home games to go 2 and 1 to start the season.

Including pre-season playing the 'peg 6 times?......I guess it beats playing the blue team so much!

here's the full schedule

Woot... we are NOT playing the Argos in the pre-season. Apparently someone listened to that complaint!!

ya, but now we're playing Winnipeg SIX times this year. (could be seven if we make the playoffs)

PS, the schedule is also up under the schedule link on this site.

I like the common bye-weeks at the middle of the season. Very fair but that means we'll only get 4 CFL games in the 2nd half of August.

I guess the league knows they'll get the attention back over labour day weekend.

It's looking good for my work schedule thus far. I'm not using up a lot of holiday time like last year :thup:

Switch home field for the Edm. games - prefer one more mid-summer game.
3 of 4 last games at home. ...brrrr

The Ticats' 2007 home schedule looks very good. Four Friday nights, four Saturday nights, one Sunday afternoon, and one Monday afternoon. Also, having two home games to close out the regular season will add to the fun if the Ticats are still in the playoff hunt by then.

Did anyone else notice the start time for Labour Day? It's back at 1pm. Hope it's not a typo.

It’s interesting that the western teams get to play two different opponents in pre-season but the East seems stuck on the all-or-nothing approach. I’d be curious to know why. Everyone needs to host exactly one home date, regardless of the opponent, so it can’t be about stadium availability.

So...do we have a start date for training camp yet?? :smiley:

It may be for the benefit of the teams in question, rather than for that of their fans.

its easier to rate talent when all of your players are essentially on an even playing field. (ie playing against the same team.)

Just a thought... really wish we didn't play them four times during the season as well though....

Hey, who said we wouldn't have a home game in November this year????

We don't need the playoffs now. I can wear my new TiCat parka after all.

At first glance I am satisfied with the schedule. For the first time in a number of years we have the final regular schedule game at home.
That could play an important part as we fight for a better playoff position.

West game is at 4:00 :thup:

Funny....I was thinking the schedule looked tough from weeks 1 - 9 and 10 - 19. I like our chances of not losing in week 8 though.
