Things couldn’t be going better right now for the Toronto Argonauts.
The defending Grey Cup champions only needed the first 2/3 of the season to take control of their fate, locking up the East Division this past week and improving to 11-1 in the process. When you’re as successful as this team and organization has been the past three seasons, good things — like the recent extensions for general manager Michael ‘Pinball’ Clemons, head coach Ryan Dinwiddie and his offensive coordinator Mickey Donovan and finally quarterback Chad Kelly — follow.

Wonder what speeches Clemons can come up with to keep this team motivated for two months: nobody respects us? Everyone hates Toronto? We are the Centre of the Universe and dont forget it? Pay no attention to the low crowds in our house: Toronto really does like us? Dont mail it in and expect a wake-up call on November 11th?
Its a nice problem to have.
I am a Cat fan, but last night they didn’t show up. I don’t know how that could happen - this was an important game for them and now their entire season is a question mark. It is time for both the coaching staff and players to look long and hard into a mirror - the Hamilton supporters have waited a long time for a winning team - now get on with it and no excuses!
