Since our beloved TiCats aren't there I'm cheering for the melon heads. Their loss last year is a fate I wouldn't wish even upon the blue team. They won't admit it but this is a chance at redemption. Their fans deserve a win.
All fans deserve a win, Rider fans while great and many of them, are no more special for the loss last year or for whatever reason than any other fans. Personally I'm routing for the Als but more just a good game that isn't a blowout.
The latter link is a David Naylor article re the CFL's expansion draft formula that is about to be announced. It appears to be a better opportunity for the new Ottawa franchise to hit the ground running than the Renegades had for its draft.
Alright, here we are. Grey Cup Sunday. And the two teams that played in the CFL season opener on Canada Day play again on this last day of the CFL season.
It doesn't seem that long ago that that July 1st game, which was very entertaining, was played. And while last year's Grey Cup game will always be remembered for how it ended, the other 59:50 of it or so was also entertaining. I expect this to be another good one.
My wonderful wife has said many times that if she meets someone for the first time and immediately likes them they usually are from Saskatchewan originally. For their support of their team, especially in the years where their record was poor and for their support of the league in general, I will be pulling for the 'riders today.
Actually I have 5 West and 7 East in my office pool, so I'm hoping for a a score of 25 to 17 for Saskatchewan. (I've kept my perfect oh for record too many years and I'd really like to win to get back some of the money I've invested over the years). :roll:
