Calgary is rocking a two-game losing streak, but the Stamps stay in first. Saskatchewan is riding a two-game winning streak, but the Riders drop to last. Edmonton beats the Argos, and the Esks jump from 8 to 4.
You'd think with 13 weeks of data that the rankings would start to make a little sense... Guess not. :lol:
well you know, if you continue to have more and more fans criticize and get on their case about this stupid, retarded ranking system, maybe they'll finally swallow their pride and give in and get rid of it.
hell, I don't even care anymore because I don't give it one millimeter of respect.
That's what happens when an objective formula is used to rank teams. If you could really rank teams with an objective formula we could dispense with the season and go straight to the Grey Cup. Obviously, the weighting given to certain performance aspects doesn't actually match-up with what is leading to wins/losses and needs a revamp. But, then again, I suspect no formula will reflect reality for more than a season or perhaps 1/2 season.
That's hilarious. I read the explanation of the rankings and fell off my chair. That is the dumbest thing I've ever heard. What will they include next year, wind direction and team horoscopes? :lol: :lol:
I'm pretty sure at this point they have written off their rankings for this year. After all in the first eight weeks they tried to address the complaints but now, after hearing the same complaints over and over, they're just basically posting them to finish up the season. I'm either expecting a lot of changes to the rankings in the offseason or a continued decline in credibility.
For once I think TSN knows what there talking about!
 Montreal (Last Week: 2)
 Saskatchewan (Last Week: 3)
 Calgary (Last Week: 1)
 Hamilton (Last Week: 4)
 Toronto (Last Week: 5)
 Winnipeg (Last Week: 6)
 B.C. (Last Week: 7)
 Edmonton (Last Week: 8)
Wheather it has a fancy formula or not they make the most sense out of the 3.... :thup: to TSN, :thdn: CBC rankings, :thdn: :thdn: :thdn: :thdn: :thdn: :thdn: :thdn: :twisted: :? :roll: :roll: :? to cfl.ca rankings
I disagree with TSN. Montreal barely beats a team tied for worst in the league and gives up 40 points in doing so while Saskatchewan beats a team that by both TSN and CBC's rankings call the best of the rest. Flip 1 and 2 and I'll live with TO in 5th only because I'm an Argo fan, otherwise I would want to see them at least behind Winnipeg.
Overall best of the bunch. TSN has shown a huge overall improvement in all aspects of their coverage since taking the contract from CBC. The last year sharing with CBC was not good but since then very good.
