Chances are good that the Redblacks will no longer be the League's doormat. Masoli to Acklin, Masoli to Johnson, hand off to Powell, things could fly in the nation's capitol.


The departure of Jaelon Acklin the Tiger-Cat's engine of receiving, and Fantuz-like ability, I fear will spell disaster for the Tiger-Cats next season as fans will suffer a dull and ineffective offence. The offence sputtered in 2021 but without Masoli and Acklin look for a big decline. Orlondo must be hardened to the concept that defences win championships.

REDLACKS? Was that on purpose?
