Prediction Time: writers make their Week 1 picks

TORONTO — The start of a CFL season, whether it’s kicking off in early to mid-June like we’re used to, or 20 months after the Grey Cup was last presented, oozes of optimism. Talk with any member of any team across the league and they’ll tell you why they like their chances and that anything this season is possible. The hot summer sky they stand under right now is the limit.

Thanks for the advice and because COVID happened… Orange is the new Green.

Week 1 Hamilton - no Harris, no Adams. Riders - Reilly plays but not 100%, no name front 4, Argos - yes, Stamps East are good, Elks - even if Nichols plays.

For the record.:


  1. Edmonton - multi PRONGED attack. Should RACK up the wins.
  2. Winnipeg - ticking time BOMB if Harris out long. Then label them 3.
  3. Calgary - OK Corral - nope. Too many stallions STAMPEDE(d) East.
  4. Saskatchewan - Commander CODY & his Lost Planet Airmen left with depleted personal guard & thinning storm troopers. ROUGH RIDE for Cody.
  5. BC - PUSSYCATS no more but no roar on D.


  1. Hamilton - These CATS have claws
  2. Montreal - LARKS singing a happy tune.
  3. Toronto - AR(e)-BUCKLE(d) up for a crazy ride.
  4. Ottawa - Color them BLUE.

Hamilton because Bombers don't have Harris or Adams
Sask because BC will be overwelmed by the noise and Reilly is nursing a sholder
Calgary because they are Calgary and Although, the Argos have a lot of big name players, will they be a team or just individual stars. Plus Arbuckle and Dinwiddie are new to their respective responsibilities and need time to adjust.
Edmonton because Ottawa has predictable Nichols whereas Harris is more likely to throw a big game with receivers he is more or less familiar with.
Any outcome will be more or less a surprise since all teams are over a year from playing the game. And nearly every team has lots of changes in players and coaches with no preseason games to adjust their rosters.
