I was just flipping through the results of some of yesterday’s CIS games and two things jumped out at me.
1 - Western are annihilating all competition. Yesterday they blitzed York 76 - 3. In their 3 games they have outscored their opponents 146 - 32.
2 - Attendance issues in some places. Some crowds were OK. For example Mac drew over 4,000 yesterday here in Hamilton even though the Ti-Cats had an afternoon home game too. In Saskatoon Saskatchewan over 5,100 Friday night, while Regina at Mosaic drew just 2,094. Other crowds seem disappointing to me too. At McGill - playing another Montreal based team (Concordia) they only drew 1,200. Waterloo playing crosstown rival Wilfred Laurier only 1,700. Manitoba at Investors Group Field drew only 800 in that 30,000+ seat stadium. How sad looking would that be.
Too bad the crowds aren’t good in so many places. There is some good football being played.
