Tiger-Cats vs. Alouettes: July 29, 2011

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 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.

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

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

WHY – To see if the Ticats can prove that they can defeat the team that's considered the team to beat, improve their record to 3-2, and to move into second place in their division.

WHERE - Ivor Wynne Stadium in Hamilton, Ontario.

WHEN - Friday, July 29th, 2011, at 6:30 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 10% probability of precipitation this evening and winds of 20 km/h are expected. And at time this was posted, it was expected that the temperature will be about 25 degrees Celsius.

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...

Go Ticats!

Great job as always, BYF.

No rain tonight.

This will be the clearest indicator as to where the TiCats are, specifically how well the Secondary performs.

Great job BYF...

After a wet morning, there's only a 10% of rain the rest of the day. Should be a nice night at Ivor Wynne :thup:

Thank BYF ,
Hoping I am wrong and kick Montreal's A Double S

5 minutes and counting!!

This game will be determined on how well GLENN plays!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If he throws pics we lose!!!
IF he is off the mark we lose!!!

Average job BYF :smiley:

It's the game of the year so far for the Tiger Cats. With Winnipeg winning yesterday this game is for 2nd place

Let's Go Cats

Thanks for the compliments on how I started the thread.

As Chris Schultz said, it's hard to imagine this Montreal team having consecutive bad performances. Going to have to be as close to sixty minutes of mistake-free play by this Ticat team.

Looks like it might be a "quiet night" in this thread, and understandably so, with the at least some of the usual posters being at IWS.

Kickoff coming up.

Everyone needs to bring their A game to win tonight..... Go CATS!!

Greetings folks -- going to watch the game in RDS HD.

Oski Wee Wee,


Ok… here is the test… 2 and out!!

Game on!

Medlock kicks into wind, Ferri gets good return to their 45.

Hi Russ.

Time to turn up volume… go defence!

Howdy Russ.... BYF et al

FUMBLE. .almost covered by the Cats.. damn!!


Nice job by Shivers to force fumble, Williams came close to recovering. Looked like he'd get that.

Good stop by the D.......

Bo should have had that INT

FG is good 3-0 bad guys!

Bo knows coverage! Looked like he coulda picked that though. End of drive.

Whyte good from 44. Why is Sandro still on their roster? 3-0 for them.

Alright, now would be a good time to at least tie it. We know Medlock's range is at least half the field, and hopefully his last attempt was just a fluke.

Als 3
Cats 0

Let's see what Glenn can do. Answering that field goal with a touchdown will be a good first step in winning this game
