In the east corner. The stuggling Tiger-Cats, coming off a strong showing against Edmonton, are set to square off with division-rival Winnipeg. A win could set the stage for a dogfight for 2nd in the Eastern division, face off against the capacity of Percival-Molson stadium.
With a season average attendance of 20307, the Ti-cats are the odds-on favorites to take this one. Both the Ti-Cats and the Bombers are looking at new life, and bad blood between these two teams via trade should help to boost interest, but I don't see the Ti-Cats overcoming their position in the standings. At least the Ti-Cat game will CRUSH the Montreal game in TV ratings, now that TSN dumped it to their alternate feed.

In the west corner, the top team in the CFL from Sask pits their newly-expanded capacity against their bitter rivals to the West. This week the Stamps welcome Don Matthews and the Argos to town. A team that has struggled as of late and a defence that should let Burris and the Calgary offence showcase their talents. This one comes down to weather. And a forecast with highs of 17 and partly cloudy gives a slight edge to Calgary. But I still don't think they can make up for the fact that their opponent isn't worth watching.
