Rider fans posting on this site have stated numerous times that the Riders always find a way to lose, so in my surfing I came across some interesting Grey Cup Statistics.
The Riders have appeared in 15 Grey Cup games in thier long history, but have only managed to win 2. That’s 13.3% winning average.
The secondworst team in Grey Cup History? Winnipeg at 10/25 or 40%
Toronto is 15/21 and 71.4%
Ottawa is 9/15 and 60%
Montreal is 7/15 and 46.7%
Hamilton is 15/29 and 51.7%
Edmonton is 12/23 and 52.2%
Calgary 5/11 and 45.5%
BC is 4/8 and 50%
That’s quite a heritage of losing once making the big game. Saskatchewan was the first team in history to appear in 5 consecutive Grey Cup games, but managed to lose all 5 of them.
This is no slam on the Riders, or thier fans, just some numbers I found that I thought I’d share.
