With all the comments made earlier this season about how much better the west is than the east, I find it interesting that after this weekend the possibilities of who will make the playoffs is still wide open.
Yes I know it's early but if Hamilton had beaten Winnipeg yesterday, it would have been fairly safe to say the Bombers were toast because the organization would have blown things up.
I'm not sure if I can remember a season where, at the half-way mark any team still had a good shot at the playoffs.
Even though they are 2-6, Hamilton has played teams tough and Winnipeg has too much talent to be down all season. Perhaps last night was a wake-up call for them. It would be great to see every team with a shot at the end of the season.
