It's that time again. 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. You can think of this thread as being like a virtual living room where fans discuss the game with each other.

And now, it looks like this is the game that could make or break these two teams' chances of making the playoffs. The last time these teams met, it was in the Ticats house, and the Ticats were on a five game losing streak. Now, the roles have reversed. While the Ticats did blow out the Esks at IWS earlier this year, they have not been able to do so well away from IWS. In fact, they have not won at Commonwealth Stadium since 2006. But this team was able to get its first win in Saskatchewan since 2000 earlier this year. This Ticat team also need this win to prove that it can win outside of IWS more than just occasionally.
