Home Field Disadvantage?

Home Records to this point:

Toronto 1-5
Montreal 1-5
Ottawa 1-3-1
Hamilton 1-2

Calgary 4-0
Edmonton 3-3
BC 2-2
Winnipeg 1-3
Saskatchewan 1-4

What the heck is going on?

No idea.,

The Lions are the big question.

So far they have sucked at home but are great on the road.

If you play lousy, do it on the road.

Gotta win at home. Keep the paying customer happy.

I think there is such parity in the CFL, that home field perhaps no longer is as big as it was.

BTW, this is slightly OT, but just a note about Stamps home field .

Mcmahon is the quietest stadium crowd in the CFL. :roll:

Any other stadium with our record would be exploding.

We get very good attendance, but just dead silence. :roll:

They gotta leave their stash at home, not risk going through airport security. So they play better on the road but have more fun at home. :wink:

Montreal and Saskatchewan shouldn't be a big surprise as both are last and have major problems. Also, hasn't Toronto been a 0.500 team at home the last few seasons?

The others are a surprise.

...I don't see anything wrong in those stats...

Are they great or is everyone but Calgary average to terrible at home???

:lol:

Part of it is injuries. Hamilton had Masoli for their 2 losses. Argos had Kilgore for 2 of their losses. The rest of it is just luck I guess.

And Montreal lost at home again.

Does the Riders losing at Mosaic on a last second field goal count as a home win?

Again the Lions will have a very small crowed Friday for there game with Montreal.

First time this season that all the home teams won this week
