There may not be as many posts here, as many of those who post to these forums will be there at IWS. But those who can't make it to IWS and will have to watch the game on television can discuss the game with their fellow Ticat fans here. So here we go.

The Ticats have won two consecutive games, but their opponents were winless at the time the Ticats played them. And now they go up against the team that's considered the league's best. Defeating the Als is what needs to be done for this team to prove that they can win the Grey Cup and that they are not just a middle of the road team that can only beat teams that aren't very good. Victory of course will not come easily, as Calvillo will play, though our AC will hopefully do well against a D that has not give up many rushing yards. And an advantage that the Ticats have is that this game in in our house. And as Glenn said in the game preview, that could make a difference, as hopefully the decibel level will be raised when our defence is out there. And so now I say...
