Grey Cup; Character Teams

On a few occasions teams with the best CFL record in the league standings can't get to the Big game or simply just don't win it. I can think of 3 teams (.500 or less) that somehow on game day pull together, display character and go on to win the Grey Cup. The Ottawa Rough Riders came very close falling to the Edmonton Eskimo's 26-23 in the 1981 classic. In 1986: Hamilton Tiger-Cats over the Edmonton Eskimo's 39-15. In 1989: Saskatchewan Roughriders over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 43-40. The Year 2000: The B.C. Lions over the Montreal Alouettes 28-26. This year some say Montreal may/could go 16-2. :slight_smile:
