Does Jaelon Acklin have to have such a fantastic season after leaving the Tiger-Cats? At the end of the game, Acklin mentioned that he really will enjoy playing the Tiger-Cats at the end of the season which sounds ominous for the dishevelled Tigers.


Heck of a year he's having, but personally I would like to see him do a little less of taunting the fans. Not very classy.


Ottawa seems to be one step ahead of Hamilton in getting a great quarterback like Nick Arbuckle, yes it's early, but Nick is looking really sharp and a decisive leader to boot. The RedBlacks management moves may determine who makes the playoffs more than onfield action. :football: :football: :football: :football: ... play ball !

Yes - the Argos (who kept the ridiculous MacBeth) and the Elks with Jones went with the equally inept Cornelius - SHAME on both teams !!
Arbuckle will come back and bite these teams on their proverbial asses.

Also Mtl kept Harris and traded an up and coming star to BC.

What a dismal performance by Mtl, especially coming off a bye week. Very little creativity offensively and no real enthusiasm it seemed from the players. The GM should fire the Coach (himself) and possibly replace himself. Prediction---Mtl 3rd in the East, at best.
