Kinda funny how the 9-5 Stamps clinched a playoff spot before the 9-4 Lions. I don't understand why - even if Edmonton and BC both finished with 9 wins, BC would win the tiebreaker.
Edmonton needs 3 more wins than Winnipeg to get the crossover spot - if the crossover is even in effect this year?? - or 2 more wins than Sask to get 3rd in the West. I guess the crossover is in effect, because cfl.ca here still hasn't given playoff spots to Toronto or Montreal - even though they will finish in the top 3 in the East, Edmonton could end up with more points than either of them. Next game that Toronto or Montreal wins, or Edmonton loses, will clinch spots for them.
BC's magic number to clinch first is 3 - and they play a home-and-home with Calgary.
Calgary's magic number to clinch second is 2 (they hold the tiebreaker over the Riders).
Saskatchewan's magic number to clinch 3rd is 3.
To clinch playoff spots, Toronto's and Montreal's magic numbers are 1, but to host a playoff game, their magic numbers are 3 for the Argos and 2 for the Als.
Winnipeg's magic number to clinch a playoff spot is 2.
By losing, Hamilton officially cemented themselves into 4th place.
Edmonton has to win 2 more games than Saskatchewan, 3 more games than Winnipeg, or 4 more games than Montreal or Toronto (yeah, right) to get into the playoffs. God I hope that doesn't happen ...
