Yeah, I'm not afraid of either of them, but I distinctly dislike the Bombers and one can't help liking the Bellefeuile led Ticats.
On the other hand, I am a bit nervous about the Lions. More than any other team, they seem to have our number. If Winnipeg wins, the Lions are out, so I'm kind of conflicted as to who I want to win today...
If the Lions made it to the Eastern Final they'd be even more banged up than they are now...I wouldn't mind a banged up team coming into Montreal. Reality is that I don't think that will happen...if they do cross over they won't make it through the Bombers/Ticats. But I'd rather have a strong Eastern competitor knocked out of playoff contention.
Actually its not a fair sytem! But more on that in a sec
The grey cup is East VS West, the crossover could end that
In ever other league, NHL, NFL, MLB, NBA you have teams with better records miss the playoffs while teams with worse records make them and no one complains.
3)If you are in one division, win in that division, lose and you are out!
Now for the unfair part!
How is it fair that BC bumps Wpg out of the playoffs because they have 1 more win?
BC only had to play Montreal twice while WPG played them 4 times! Montreal dominated the league this year, WPG is penalized because they play in the same division, BC is rewarded because they play in the other.
I was rolling on the floor laughing when Ti-Cats intercepted Bishop and TDed it. Then they jumped on the boat and having their little fishing cruise. Imagine my laughter when they did it again, jumped on the boat again, only several minutes later!
