Ferguson: Which team won Labour Day?

Every year we as a collective CFL following say, ‘the season doesn’t start until Labour Day.’

IMHO, we had the luxury of being able to stick to the running game on Labour Day (and the rematch) because our defense was crushing it. As long as the Riders couldn't score we could afford to meander down the field with short high percentage plays that ate up the clock and ground down their defense.

Then of course the success of our short game led to the occassional long pass being wide open.

Our defense was making our offense look better than it was. :smiley: :+1:
