could be interesting

has there ever been a time when the worst team in the league had 5 wins? How about 6?

Go sask and tor :cowboy:

Oh look another random FYB thread. Really you just have your own thread stickied at the top for you to place whatever random minutae happens to enter your mind on any given day...

But to answer you question, league worst at 5 wins has happened multiple times over history. 6 wins is rarer, last time was 2001 when Saskatchewan had 6 wins, before that was 1990 when both B.C. and Hamilton had 6 wins...

in 1983 a 5-10 Ticats made the playoffs ( I am sure there is more ) and they only missed a shot at the grey cup by 5 points after winning the semi final.

in 1981 the Al's made the play offs with just 3 wins ( the riders with 9 wins and Calgary with 6 wins where left out )

unbelievable. :o This preceded the crossover rule I gather.. And the 1981 hapless Argos only had two wins, which provided the Als a playoff spot. Not to mention, the Als won only 3 games with the high profile NFL free agent QB Vince Ferragamo at the helm. (arguably the biggest bust in CFL history)

When did crossover come into effect BTW?

what exactly is your purpose for this. If you dont appreciate my topic(s), why not just ignore? Are you really so full of hatred that you cant help yourself?

OH LAWDY

Actually a 5 win team almost beat the powerhouse Eskimos in the GC game that year... the Ottawa Rough Riders led the Esks 20-3 at halftime... just goes to show that anything can happen in the CFL...

The Refs rode to the Esks rescue with a awful call on Gabriel in the dying minutes of that game!

Double PI calls in that game mind you...30 years ago; Dave Cutler the last of the straight on Field Goal kickers.

:lol:

Lets face it, you basically just clutter up the entire forum with threads of what ever random bit of thought happens to enter your mind at any given moment. Sometimes it's interesting, most of the time it's not. If there was a catch-all one-stop shopping FYB thread, it would keep the diarrhea of useless threads to a minimum.

I bet you are one of those old guys that chats the ears of random strangers that are too polite to tell you to stop talking... :lol:

Well on the bright side at least this thread is understandable without knowing what classic game he was watching when he wrote it? :lol:

there's 3 FYB threads on the first page.

clutter up the forums? oh boo hoo, we can't see the threads from two weeks ago anymore.. a couple of threads about Week 17 games are missing. must we complain about everything? you can post about what you want.

if reading his threads makes you upset, you have only yourself to blame for reading them.. don't like them, don't read them
