Wow what a game, and what a game to be at as a Rider fan. My voice was hoarse by the end of the first quarter from cheering.
Anyways I sat in section K which was predominantly Rider fans, with a few Stamps fans mixed in. It was very loud and we stood for most of the game. It must have also been surreal for the Stamps to get booed by a lot of the crowd when they were introduced.
The main chant of the section (other than the obvious go riders go) was Heeeennnnnnnnrrrrrrrryyyyyyyy, Heeeennnnnnnnnnnrrrrrrrrrrrryyyyyyyy....., especially after throwing pick after pick. It's great that he was still able to help the Riders out and help them make the West finals.
If I had to guess the stadium was 40% Rider fans, with the Rider fans making half the noise. Since I was in the main Rider fan section this is only my observation. I'm sure Red&White (and other Stamps fans) can give a different perspective from their section.
In the last 2 minutes I would say there was 80-90% of Rider fans in the stadium. A lot of Stamps fans left the game early, leaving a lot of empty seats in the middle sections.
I wish I could go to B.C. next week-end but I have prior committments.
Also some of the fans (Rider and Stamps) need a football tutorial. I saw at least twice both sets of fans cheering for a punted single, instead of being disappointed the ball wasn't within the 20 yard line.
Also some fans thought the Stamps could kick a field goal near the end and then do an onside kick to try and win the game with a td. Obviously not realizing that in the CFL the team has the option of taking the ball at the 35 yard line, therefore negating any chance of an onside recovery.
