For those of you who have read that. No way. Not even close.
He along with the entire QR77 broadcast team , are such homers it is sickening.
The 96 - 97 Argos would have thumped the Stamps. As well as the 95 Stallions , 09 Als,and 11 Lions
I am saying this while living in Calgary and a Stamps fan.
He is looking at a 15 - 3 record , and while looks impressive it was done against teams in what was a weak season.
In the 2014 season there was 3 levels.
1 - Stamps and Esks
2 -6 other teams-
3 - Ottawa
I remember an interview with the great Esk WR Brian Kelly. He was asked what the formula for winning 5 in a row was. His answer was " it was not so much how good we were as how bad the rest of the league was"
Same goes here. Calgary won this year by default. Although I was through the roof on how they destroyed Edmonton in the West Final.
Please Rider nation , do not jump on me about the Durant injury as I say Sask would have beet Edm in the semi had he been able to play. We will never know.
Anyway, my point is I was at the Grey Cup hoping to see a Stamps victory. I was less then thrilled as the result was that Calgary did not win the Grey Cup. Hamilton lost it.
Calgary scored 3 points in the second half and I would have been more satisfied had Banks got tackled or if Calgary scored another TD. It just feels like a hollow victory.
I am not saying Hamilton would have won as if the TD had counted , there was enough time for Calgary to kick a FG for OT.
I have watched the play over and over. I still have not been able to see if Banks would have been tacked on the first wave.
Does not matter anyway Taylor Reid had no business hitting the guy from behind. Sir , you know it will be a penalty , so what was going through your mind ?
This is eve worse then the 2009 13 man screw up . BTW, for those of you who did not hear the Paul Lapolice interview, Sean Lucus was the 13th man. It was a case that Mon did not win , Sask lost it. But at least it was an honest confused mistake.
Mr Reed should have kept his hands off.
Anyway I think the CFL will be much better in 2015 and good luck Hamilton. I hope you take it .
