This is a list of very significant players involuntarily lost from last year’s team. Either through retirement, injury, free agency or other. This would be a set back for any team, and the Calgary Stampeders are no exception. It meant not clinching by Thanksgiving as usual, instead having to wait for week 21. This was our worst regular season in 6 years, yet it was still better than any other team, including the Saskatchewan Roughriders who had their best regular season since………well ever!!!
You can all shout and scream, you can put your foot or fist through your rec room drywall, but this is reality. The Calgary Stampeders are still here and they aren’t going anywhere.
DEAL WITH IT.
I can't predict the future, but I can tell you Calgary has 15 1st places in the last 28 years. An has hosted playoff games 25 times since 1989.
Regardless of playoff outcome, you tell me you wouldn't be thrilled if you could have that the next 28 years!
in the big picture, I would be happy to be a stamps fan if I was a stamps fan. I would be worried though about how this yr ends. Wouldn't complain about it though because other teams got to win some as well.
This is probably the worst Calgary has looked heading to the post season in a number of years, I’m sure they’ll be some nerves with whoever they end up playing in the West final. That being said, they’ll probably win the Grey Cup just because they’ve looked terrible over the last month.
First place means nothing, yet I get the feeling Sask would have been partying last night had they clinched.
We had a 25-0 lead at halftime, against BC's starters.
Yes our first half of season was better (although hardly injury free!) but the league made it perfectly clear that the games would counting on June 14th. Not at some point convenient for the riders!
Maybe if your egotistical coach/GM wasn't hell bent on converting a receiver to cornerback, things cold have been different. Oh well.
Reality is what reality is.
Reality is, the Calgary Stampeders continue to be the best team in the league, nearing 4 decades.
The receivers looked better last night. Huf has had a tough situation but it looks like hes found some decent scabs to take a shot at this thing. Really hope they make it because commonwealth would be an trip!
Appearing in 3 of the last 4 Grey Cups and winning one of them = more to mock than to celebrate? I mean three other teams have won as many Cups in that time but none has done better. I'd take that for the Argos.
Now, if you want to talk about more to mock than to celebrate, I submit the Argos 2018 season for your consideration.
