Tonight's CFL game between Calgary and SSK should be an interesting one if not entertaining. Calgary has 1st place in the West wrapped up and no doubt will play conservatively. They certainly don't want key players injured.
The big question mark is SSK. Who would they prefer meeting in the playoffs? Would they prefer being the cross over team and meet either Montreal, Hamilton or perhaps Toronto in the Eastern Semi-Final or stay in the West?
SSK is in the playoffs but they could end up meeting either B.C, or Edmonton in the Western Semi-Final and they would have to go head to head against the formidable Stampeders on Stampeder turf if they win the Semi-Final. If SSK makes it that far you have to wonder what will be left of the Roughies after the Western Final.
Going east would be a cake walk. The Als, Argos and Ti-Cats have all ramped up their game and given that the Semi and eastern Final is a winner take all, I would not want to place a bet on SSK coming out on top.
Last week the Riders tried to pull a rabbit out of the hat. In CFL years he was an elderly rabbit albeit a seasoned one named Kerry Joseph who just turned 41. Not surprising the Roughies dropped their 4th straight game and their last 5 of 6. They still have tonight and one more game to get things turned around.
I can just imagine the trash talk….
Calgary: Hey, bring it on. We can beat you even with our second string players! :thup:
SSK: Make our day! :rockin:
I'm hoping SSK goes into the game and takes it to Stamps with an attitude, " Watch out if we meet you in the Western Final".
I'm hoping that if Calgary does lose tonight I don't hear, " So what if you SSK beat us. We were resting our best players."
