OK - could somebody explain to me why it is that one of the teams in the East - that did not request road games or bye weeks for the first 3-4 weeks of the season - due to new stadium issues - is now the team that has the ridiculous competitive advantage of having a bye week and then four consecutive home games - and five of their last six at home???
Yes I'm talking about the Argos.
There is no way this schedule should have passed scrutiny by the other teams. I know it balances out in the end but we all know that games down the stretch take on a certain amount of more intensity than early season games - because of play-off implications. And IMO it is simply not right that one team going down the stretch should have a schedule that has them get a bye week, followed by four consecutive home games. That is simply ridiculous and not right.
How did a schedule like this get approved? The schedule should be as balanced as possible for all teams between home and away games spread as evenly as possible through the season. Anything else is not fair.
