Outclassed? Not so sure about that one. . . other than Fantuz calling out his QB from time to time, I see the Riders as being a pretty classy team. No peeps of sour grapes from them after it was over, just an admission that the better team on the day won it.
But was it this:
Or was it more a case of Montreal's defence shutting down the Riders' offence?
Trestman said in his postgame speech that the Riders always bring out the best in the Als. I think the last five or so games the two teams have played against each other support that statement. No shame in losing games like these. Far better to know that you are very close to being a champion than to get blown out and realize that your year-long success may have been a fluke. No fluke for the Riders. They deserve to be where they are, and they can hold their heads up high knowing they left everything on the field. Sometimes, the other team is just better on the day.
...gotta get you a publicist one of these days, someone helps keep your foot in your shoe and away from your mouth....you created this post with good intentions I'm sure and good on you for it, and the admission that the Als were a better team yesterday must have been painful to write, so I commend you for that....but why take all that maturity and flush it with what I quoted above dude?...the Als weren't cocky, they were excited, like little kids, that's got to be expected...and I'm sure if the score was reversed the riders would have been equally as urgent about flooding the field...c'mon man, be realistic...
didnt the riders flood the field after the "miss" last year? it happens. the only reason its upsetting you is cause it hurts watching your team lose, i know that lol. but how can you say the als outclassed your team one post than accuse them of being unsportsmanlike the next? i feel like those are two very contradicting ideas.
