The last 4 of the last 5 Grey Cups won by Ottawa have been on CNE Grounds.
68 - 73 - 76 - 2016.
There is something special about Ottawa playing in Toronto for the Cup.
For those nostalgic types CFL Classic Tuesday is playing the 76 game today.
Or you can see the full version anytime on youtube.
As for 2016, here is what is unfortunate from my view as a Stamps fan.
Not the loss, but the excuses and finger pointing.
In 2001 the Stamps defeated the powerhouse Bombers.
Stamps received no respect. Stamps did not win , Bombers lost.
There was all these excuses from Bomb land.
Now the shoe is on the other foot.
2016 " greatest team of all time " just took it on the chin.
There is all this " Stamps blew it" crap.
"They were overconfident. "
That is from media and other "fans"
Give the Reds credit for playing better and deserving the 2016 crown.
What I am having a problem with is our " leader " BLM who has received props from media and fans all season long is having an issue with " the call ".
In the post game media scrum he states " the ball should have been in my hands or Mess's hands. I thought I would celebrate"
In other words, he is against the DD decision.
I respect guys who are honest, but he should not be calling out his coach.
Staring down receivers was not called for either. Talk to them on the sidelines like a pro.
What cost the Stamps the game was getting into a 20 pt hole and having to crawl out.
BLM needs to take this like a man and accept that he played the worst start he has had since being a Stamp .
Give the Ottawa D credit for that BTW.
