CFL Records - Decade

Good tweet from Danny Austin - makes for a good discussion i think.

The Cats have the 4th best record in the decade. I’ll bet if you polled this site everybody would have voted 6-9th.

Ottawa’s win total is last for obvious reasons - but their winning % is also dead last.

I couldn’t resist. I hope I got it right this time… ;D

Ottawa didn’t play 180 games in that 10-year period - Win% similar to TOR.

I wish Sask didn’t win a GC, but alas… They did.

Oops! I goofed with SASK - 2 appearances, 1 win… I fixed it above.

A great 2019 season hides a lot of average to below average seasons. So yeah, most people would have rated us 6th or below.

It was the best decade of the last 3 for the Cats.

1990 to 1999 3 seasons 500 or better post season 6 wins 5 losses
2000 to 2009 4 seasons 500 or better post season 1 win 4 losses
2010 to 2019 5 Seasons 500 or better post season 7 wins 8 losses
Need to fix the post season record

Does it really? Cause a 10 win season would have us 5th.

The 15 win season is about as unlikely as the 0-8 start. It all works itself out.

The most glaring stat is the big goose egg under the Grey Cup win column for a certain team who just happens to be the only team that hasn’t won it at least once this decade :-[ :’(.

We are no 2 in GC appearances - so take that! ;D… :’( :’(

Can’t wait for Expat to weigh in on the team with the second worst winning % having two Grey Cups.

And we are tied for most Grey Cup losses - so there ya go ! ;D… :’( :’(

Not much to add beyond the original observation from this Danny Austin guy. The Grey Cup really does seem to be a fresh slate where anyone can win. (Well, almost anyone.)

Except for one thing: the hosting conference has won nine in a row. Other than MTL in 2010 (played in EDM), the western teams have won all of the other six games hosted in the west. The eastern teams won all three games hosted in the east. This may be a fluke - but it’s a fluke that has held for nearly a decade.

This is what I find interesting about the win percentages as posted by ClosetCat.

If you applied them to a single regular season and rounded off the win totals, that season would look like this:

CAL: 13-5
EDM: 9-9
BC: 9-9
HAM:9-9
SSK:9-9
MTL: 8-10
WPG:8-10
TOR:8-10
OTT: 7-11

We’re mostly indistinguishable.

Was looking forward to a rant on how Toronto backs into two grey cups with average teams and we can’t seem to catch a break.

Well-worn territory. Still too raw.

Loving the ever increasing standards…

2002-08. "Can’t win, typical Ti-Cats

2009-11. “Who cares about making playoffs when you can’t win when you get there. Typical Ti-Cats” Why do I bother"

2011 - Present. “Regular season wins, making playoffs, winning in playoffs, who cares when you can’t win a cup? Typical Ti-Cats. Why do I get my hopes up?”

2020 ? .“Yeah sure they finally won a cup but…”

Wasn’t your whole shtick last offseason about how fans shouldn’t settle for mediocrity?

Except that particular brand of “fan” being adressed do not “settle”.

They use whatever the state of the team is in to justify their own negativity and defeatism. Which was the point .

The fact the point had to be explained to you means you probably still don’t get it.

I got this 1957-2019 TC summary from Wikipedia. I had to make the columns “thinner” to fit here.
Asterisks are OT wins. Scores in brackets are total points series…
