Tie Breaker

seems like a long shot right now but what are the tie breaker rules for a 3 way tie for first?
if we somehow win last 2 and bc wins last 2 and calgary wins 1 of last 2 we are all tied if my math adds up.
how are the rules set up to decide first, second and third?

Good question... I would say just flip a coin, but a coin doesn't have three sides.

Though it does seem unlikely (i'm pretty sure the universe would collapse on itself if it did) I am sure there is something they do.

I wish i could be more helpful, but I am as baffled as you.

I'll look around, and let you know if i figure it out.

When two or more member Clubs are tied in the final Division standings at the
conclusion of the regular season schedule, preferential ranking for playoff purposes
shall be determined on the basis of the following priorities and shall be awarded to
the club that:
a) has won the greater number of games played against all member Clubs of the
League or,
b) has won the greater number of games played against the other tied Club(s)
or,
c) has scored the higher net aggregate of points (i.e. points scored for less points
scored against) in games played against the other tied Club(s) or,
d) has scored the higher net quotient of points (i.e. points scored for divided by
points scored against) in games played against the other tied Clubs(s) or,
e) has won the greater number of games (or percentage of games) played against
all member Clubs of the Division or,
f) has scored the higher net aggregate of points in games played against all
member Clubs of the Division or,
g) has scored the higher net quotient of points in games played against all member
Clubs of the Division or,
h) has scored the higher net aggregate of points in games played against all
member Clubs of the League or,
i) has scored the higher net quotient of points in games played against all member
Clubs of the League or,
j) has won a coin toss against the other tied club.

Found it, taken straight from the CFL rulebook.

The only tie breaker rules to be applied this year will be BC - Calgary and possibly Sask - Edmonton. BC and Calgary have both beaten Saskatchewan and retained the season series against Sask. The only way Sask gets first, is BC splits their next two games (loss to Toronto) and Calgary loses both of theirs. If Edmonton beats Sask this week they could force the carry-over.

We would lose out on tiebreaker b.

so in that case what is the season series with edmonton?

I think they are going to use the internatioal tie breaker. Rock, Paper Scissors

Under Tiebreaker B (3-way tie)

Calgary Stands at 4 wins
Sask Stands at 3 wins
BC Stands at 2 wins

Currently. But after the BC/Calgary game (which BC has to win for a 3-way tiebreaker), BC will have their 3rd win.

The other scenario for a 3-way tiebreaker is if we have one win and one tie, and Calgary has a loss and a tie, and BC has a win and a tie. In that 3-way, BC would not have their 3rd win against Calgary, and the Riders would take 2nd under rule B.

Under Tiebreaker C

Calgary is +55
Sask is -39
BC is -16

So, any way you slice it, the 3-way tiebreaker comes down Calgary, BC, Sask.

there are 3 sides to a coin. If it lands on its esge BC wins the toss, LOL

Good old rock. Nothing beats that.......

Nevermind 1st. Calgary has to lose for us to get first.

We need BC to lose to Toronto and/or Calgary.
Then Riders need to beat both Edmonton and Toronto.

I say Toronto will beat BC and So will Calgary.

Then I say We will beat either and/or both Toronto and Edmonton.
