Tiger-Cats gameday is here again. And so it is time to post the thread for posting about the game as it happens. If you want to post about the game as it's happening, this is the place to do so. There may be many posts here, as this game is not anywhere near where most Ticat fans can get to. And here we go.

After a game in which the Ticats did not look impressive at all, they go into a stadium in which they are winless since 2002 and they are missing a few starters in its secondary. Even though the Ticats can win the season series against the Als, not many are giving them a chance to win. But after the blue team won their game against Calgary on Friday, you have to believe that anything can happen in the CFL. If the Ticats win, they'll be back above .500, get a long overdue win in Montreal, and have a chance to host a playoff game. If they lose, they'll be below .500, and it'll be highly unlikely a playoff game will be played at IWS this year. This team has a chance as long as it is as good as it has been before, and so I say...
