We're on the same page when it comes to the Labour Day matchup in Saskatchewan against Winnipeg. Team win/loss records go out the window on Labour Day. I expect a battle royale.
Montreal should also win... unless something happens to Harris since the luxury of having VA in their bullpen just vaporized with yesterdays trade.
Poor Ottawa. Calgary is looking darned near unstoppable with Jake Maier in for BLM. Even returner Dedmon with his usual one TD per game contribution can't save LaPo from yet another defeat. I'll still pull for Ottawa. I just can't pick them to win this one.
I know that Toronto can lose if they really try. MacBeth has yet to put together a full game to match last week's second half performance. It's too bad for the Cats that Dane Evans won't let Hamilton hang onto a 4th quarter lead. Still, who cares about the regular season when you're the TigerCats? They've gotten to the Cup the last two seasons in a row regardless of how badly the Argos have mangled them. I'm just hoping for a good game to watch here with no cringeworthy mistakes made by either side.
It's hard to disagree with any of that. Especially that bit about the "Riders will defend their joint."
They've always had the Bombers' number for this mashup. We've lost 14 out of the last 16 meetings. Zack Collaros on the other hand, has NEVER lost a Labour Day Classic which for us is as confusing as it gets.
On Labour Day the Bombers fall,
But Zack Collaros wins them all,
how can this be? We're always wrecked,
Except for Zack... he's friggin' perfect.
The Elks can't get any worse?,
Ha! Don't let that bubble burst.
Bo traded north, maybe.
Please, luck be a lady.
Lions making good qb trades.
Elks making more failing grades.
Bombers really luck out with Zach.
His was the greatest CFL come back.
Fans of Elks, and Redblacks, do not fear
The end of miserable year is near.
Enjoy the weekend. As a Bomber fan, I’m really looking forward to the 2 Lion games remaining with Calgary. Whoever comes out on top of those is coming to Winnipeg for the West Final (just my prediction). The CFL is ramping up, the fun has just begun.
The fun has just begun indeed. The only reason I would pull for the Riders today is because the Lions have the season series and it keeps the Bombers close.
Those two up and coming games against the Stamps will be huge… wouldn’t it keep things interesting if the Lions can keep up with the Bombers and the last two meetings with the Bombers would determine first in the West. Right down to the wire…
Interesting. I'm pulling for the Bombers because with Rourke out, I'm willing to concede 1st place to the BB & feel an urgent need to keep the Stamps & RR as far behind us as we can, & cling to our 2nd place standing for as long as possible.
