Tiger-Cats Vs. Alouettes Play-by-Play Game Thread: 6/22/2011

Tiger-Cats vs. Alouettes: June 22, 2011

After only four days since the last gameday for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, it is gameday for them again. It may be only be a preseason game, but it's an actual game that we can discuss as it is happening. So if you want to post about what happens during the game as it happens, this is the thread for that. So here we go again.

WHAT – Tiger-Cats Gameday: Tiger-Cats vs. Alouettes.

WHO - The Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the Montreal Alouettes.

WHY – To find out which players on each team will be more likely to make their teams, and to see which players will succeed in trying to make an impression.

WHERE - Ivor Wynne Stadium in Hamilton, Ontario.

WHEN - Wednesday, June 22nd, 2011, at 7:00 p.m. EDT.

HOW - Radio: CHML (900 kHz AM) or Y108 (107.9 MHz FM) broadcasting from Hamilton.

Television: TSN.

Click here for tonight's weather forecast. At the time I'm posting this, there is a 60% probability of precipitation this evening and southeast winds of 10 km/h are expected. There is a chance of thundershowers, and 2-4 mm of rain are expected. And at time this was posted, it was expected that the temperature will be about 22 degrees Celsius, but it's expected to feel like it's 30 degrees. Anyway, those going to the game might want to refer to this article: http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Trash-Bag-Poncho

The first preseason game did not go quite as well as some of us wanted it to, but certain players who are reasons the team lost are not on the roster anymore. Here in the second preseason game, we'll see more of the starters, and it has been said that Glenn and other starters are expected to play at least one half in this article that you can click here to read. The rivalry between the Ticats and Als could be more interesting this year with Cobourne being here, and DeAngelis being with the Als (and I can already imagine the heckling he'll get at IWS this time.) However, the players may be playing against the Larks, but some will actually be competing with their teammates for the final spots on the roster. This game might not count in the standings, but for the players whose roster spots are on the line, this game matters very much to them. Four days ago (less than 100 hours ago in fact) offensive tackle Jason Thomas took an unnecessary roughness penalty, was pulled from the game, and never played for the team again according to what was said here. There are moments such as these that can make or break these players' chances of making the team. And there will be moments like these that we will look for as our coaching staff looks to make the 2011 Hamilton Tiger-Cats as good as they can be. And so having said all that, I say...

Go Ticats!

Thanks for today's game thread, BYF. This might be the first time we've had two active game threads as last week's is still going strong, albeit in a peeing contest over who's coach can beat up the other. Due to work commitments I can't make it to IWS tonight. It's a weird feeling watching a home game on tv.

I can't make it tonight, i'll have to watch it on t.v. :cry:

Who's the rocket surgeon that came up with a Wednesday night tilt anyway?

Cats by 10 if the starters play most of the game..

From Drew

[b]Kevin Glenn will get the start at quarterback and is expected to play the entire first half before giving way to No. 2 man Quinton Porter. Jason Boltus, who played three quarters on Wednesday, will finish up.

On defence, linebackers Markeith Knowlton, Jamall Johnson and Rey Williams will see their first action of the pre-season, as will defensive ends Stevie Baggs and Justin Hickman. That should a help defensive backfield that was burned repeatedly on Sunday.

The Cats may also unleash the hounds: Hamilton didn't blitz against Toronto but defensive coordinator Corey Chamblin offered up a big smile and a coy answer when asked about his intentions against Montreal.

“We're moving to the next phase of our defence this week,? he said.[/b]

GAMEDAY! Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!! So happy football is back at Ivor Wynne :smiley:
