This week, the top two underperforming teams will meet in a clash of Tita... err.. a clash of Tritons.
For both teams, this might be the last chance to get a run for a playoffs spot going. The Hamilton Tiger-Cats are 0-6. To get a playoffs berth, they need to outperform BOTH the third place eastern team (while all three eastern opponents are capable of winning regularly) and the fourth place western team (where the fight may be tight until the end).
The Blue Bombers are 1-6, but sit in the most crowded division, so they also need to best two teams to get a playoffs berth.
Facing each other, they both have a last chance of getting something going. Going 1-7, or 0-7 ressemble pretty much to the end of hope. Not to mention, losing to the other over-struggling team also is catastrophic for self-confidence.
The CFL already feature marquee match-ups like the Labour day Classic, the Banjo Bowl, the Rona Cup, etc.
I hereby propose the establishment of the Last Chance Bowl, a yearly mid-season collapse... err, I mean clash... of the two bottom-feeders. The winner wins hope, while the other only gets shame.
Who will win the first edition of this soon-to-be classic?
