We have a few fans from other teams posting in our very active Grey Cup related threads and I think they’ve all been respectful. We can be a glum, negative bunch at times (Sit with me at a game and you’ll find out). I read the comment from @rider01.1 as a “cheer up” kind of comment - no ill will intended.
Hamilton did a great job of hosting the Cup, I think we can host a few fans from other teams here on the forum in our Grey Cup threads.
Most certainly the Cats are better shape to contend than let’s say the riders of the Elk. The Ottawa team is not in the running.
The Stamps had bad season unlike them to do so so the jury is out of they can get better fast. But I still give them better chance to do so before the Riders and Elk come to terms with the issues needed to be corrected.
Same with the Cats, not more needed to become a contender than at least three other teams needing the same attention possibly 4 if we count the Stamps in there too. Stamps got in by default because the riders pooped the bed so bad in the last 7 games…the Elk were never really in the running this recent two seasons
Was at the game as an ALS fan and really enjoyed the experience. Loved that Ti-Cats fans in solidarity seemed in large part pulling for the ALS.
On the QB thing, I’m super happy for Fajardo. He seems like a really good person and leader. I’d say it all came together in term of his game, a stellar effort from the OL and a really good offensive plan. I don’t think Winnipeg’ expected us to throw as many deep shots as we did.
I don’t think Jake Maier wins that game as an Alouette. Fajardo threw well, but he also had some super key runs and rolled out on passes really well. Vernon Adams, sure, but so long as he wasn’t overwhelmed by the moment.
Van Zeyl, I’m struggling to understand why he was brought back. But since I think he spent virtually the whole year on the 6-game, I don’t think he took away cap space?
BLM was a gamble. And IMO the jury is still out. He had two serious injuries and just didn’t get enough playing time this year. It’s possible he can regain his old form with an offseason of training and a focused mindset in training camp.
