Tiger-Cats Vs. Bombers Play-by-Play Game Thread (6/20/2010)

Tiger-Cats vs. Blue Bombers: June 20, 2010

Tiger-Cats gameday is here again. It may be a preseason game, which some have understandably referred to as a "glorified practice" for the teams in it. However, we have an actual game to discuss. And so the time to post the thread for posting about the game as it's happening has come. Those of you who want to discuss what's happening in the game as it's happening can post during the game here. So here we go.

WHAT – Tiger-Cats Gameday: Tiger-Cats vs. Blue Bombers.

WHO - The Hamilton Tiger-Cats and that Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

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 - Sunday, June 20th, 2010, at 1:00 p.m. EDT.

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

Television: Cogeco and Cable 14. More information on television coverage can be found if you click here.

Click here for today's weather forecast. At the time I'm posting this, there is a 10% probability of precipitation and northwest winds of 20 km/h are expected. And at time this was posted, it was expected that the temperature will be about 26 degrees Celsius.

If last week's game was considered a glorified practice, then this one can be considered a glorified practice that more of our veterans will participate in. Still, it'll be interesting to see the veterans on the team losing the rust as they get themselves ready for what'll hopefully be a great year. And it'll also be interesting to the which rookies will impress enough to stay here. And will we see players possibly give us something to look forward to? Will we see one of our players do well enough on returns to convince he'll be our return specialist? Who will impress and who will not? And while the end result of this might not matter, I'd like to see this practice go better for us than for the other team, especially considering the number of former Ticats they have. And so I say...

Go Ticats!

Enjoy the thread Guys Thanks BYF..

I'm wasting two tickets on this game - this sucks. No ride, and nobody else to go.

Enjoy the game everyone.

Not a problem, and I'm sure we will enjoy this thread.

I live in an area where it will be broadcast on television and so I'll try to do what I can to describe what's happening to those who can't see it. But it is the pre-season for me as well. :slight_smile:

The following players won't be suiting up for this afternoon's preseason game against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers:

#13 DB Will Poole
#25 LB Markeith Knowlton
#27 DB Jerome Dennis
#39 LB Agustin Barrenechea
#48 LB Yannick Carter
#84 WR Adam Nicolson
#86 WR Maurice Mann
#87 WR Chris Bauman
#93 DT Matt Kirk

Most, if not all of those players are sitting this out because of injuries, according to Drew: http://scratchingpost.thespec.com/2010/ ... tches.html

Looks like it'll be quite in this thread, as I'd expect with the game being at IWS. But I plan on posting my thoughts as the game goes on.

I don't see Vega's name on the list of non-players.
So, it will be a treat to hear how he performs. From a distance, he seems to be regarded as a bright light for the future,

Hello Everyone
This gives us a "glorified practice" on the game day thread. We can get all our spelling and grammar mistakes out now before the season begins.

Go kats

Vega and van Sichem, who did not play last week because of injuries, will play. Vega is a rookie to watch, and so I’ll be watching for #78 on defence.

Cable 14’s coverage is underway.

Is the Cable 14 feed available anywhere to watch on-line?

Unfortunately, it's not likely that it is. If cable 14 is not streaming it, I don't think it's likely anyone else will.

But I'll see if I can keep you updated.

Kickoff coming up.

Thanks BYF
I know that Ticats.ca streamed it in the past I was hoping maybe they were doing it again,

Game on, Serna kicks it off, and Manson does not get that far on the return, just 9 yards.

Starters out on offence.

We start with 7 yard completion to .... BRUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCE! (Was waiting long time to say that.) :slight_smile:

And he gets FD next.

Come on Cats. Lets go. I want a win. I want to see our team dominate

Cobb gains 11, as big hole opened for him!

We know what Bruce can do. Let's get the passes to others.

After Glenn sacked, he tried screen to Cobb, even though he had WPG players in front of him.

Not a good punt by Palardy. A little worried about that. But we regain possession!

WPG offside, but Glenn runs and finds wide-open Carter for big gain! Nice!

We got lucky on that punt. I'm a bit concerned about the punting this season. We have unproven punters.

We need a new punter for sure.

M. McDaniel should've had that TD!

Drive went well other than that and James offside. I missed seeing Cobb run with it.

Sandro gets 30+ yard FG, now our D will be on field for first time.
