Agree. I cannot see the Tabbies losing the next match against BC. The lessons they learned on that last fiasco (for the Tabbys, not the Leos!) have no doubt left a bitter taste in their collective mouths and thus, they will come out better prepared and swinging. Plus they need to pay the game down to the last second.
Tolliver is listed on the depth chart, so he’s either back or a game-time decision; but this team is way better with Brandon Banks than they are without him. Add to that a home crowd and not having to play until 1:30 in the morning, and that last-second squeaker the Lions won last week becomes a cakewalk for the Ticats.
Some may call me stupid for cheering on the Tabbies. Strategically-speaking, I should have been cheering for BC but the Tabbys are my number 2 team.
I don’t object to team rivalries, some trash talk and a bit of taunting and good-natured back and forth but the Lions’ dancing on the Tabbys logo, showed a serious lack of class. One of the reasons why I love football is that the players and teams, while they are rivals, at least respect one another. What the Lions did by dancing on the Tabbys logo, was disrespectful. You don’t go into someone’s home and p*** on their carpet.
Bravo Zulu to the Tabbys for surrounding their logo at the start of the game and not allowing the Lions to step into it for the coin toss.
The football gods and the wrath of the Tabbys punished the Lions for their hubris. Looks good on them. Wish the damn score had been 60 to nothing and it might well have been but for the Tabbys taking so many stupid penalties.
Good game guys. You defended your house and your honour and handed the Lions a much-needed dose of humility.
