So there is a big game coming up this weekend between the Esks and the Leos that has implications in the standings. So if I'm Edmonton, who would I rather play in the playoffs at Commonwealth stadium? Saskatchewan or B.C. ???
A BC win this weekend means they will clinch 3rd in the West. So does Edmonton go into their game against BC this weekend and say, "hmmm... I would rather play Saskatchewan, so we need to beat BC at all costs" or do they rest some key players (or keep them on a short leash), and play some next ups if they are wanting to play BC in the playoffs?
I would think that Calgary or Edmonton don't really care who they play in the playoffs, but management would prefer to Play the Riders for the extra ticket sales that a Rider draw would generate
