Tiger-Cats vs. Eskimos: September 15, 2012

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. You can think of it as being like a virtual broadcast booth where what happens in the game is mentioned and commented on while it's happening. You can also think of it as being like Twitter but without the character limit. But there may not be as many posts here today, with regular contributors here being at IWS. But in any case, here we go.

WHAT – Tiger-Cats Gameday. Tiger-Cats vs. Eskimos.

WHO - The Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the Edmonton Eskimos.

WHY – To see if the Ticats can end that five game losing streak and defeat a team that they are competing with for a berth in the playoffs.

WHERE - Ivor Wynne Stadium in Hamilton, Ontario.

WHEN - Saturday, September 15th, 2012, at 3:00 p.m. EDT.

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

This week's game is yet another must-win. If the season ended at this point, this Edmonton team would be in the playoffs and the Ticats would not because of the crossover rule. This team cannot afford to lose a game against a team that they are competing with for a playoff berth. And this team needs to demonstrate that it can win after this long losing streak. This team cannot afford to have a losing streak last one third of a season. It has already lost enough must-win games. It cannot afford to lose any more of them. Can this team again look like that team that had a three game win streak earlier this year? Can they begin that turnaround that must begin now? Well, the only thing I have to say now after saying that is...

Go Ticats!

Well since I'm going to the game today, I will leaving soon and I won't be posting until I get home and the Burn the Witches thread has been started, I may as well get this out of the way early...

Oh for crying out loud!

Seriously? Fantuz is something like 7 foot 10, how can you overthrow him?

Drop the freakin' flag George!

Of course, yet another fumble...

Come on, it's freakin' Joseph, he's like 70 years old, how can you let him get away?

Guys, that guy with the ball? You're supposed to tackle him...

There, now that I got that out of my system, I can relax and enjoy the game. See you tonight... :lol:

You forgot "oh come on, how do you drop that pass?" :slight_smile:

We have seen many posts with comments like those in these game threads. And hopefully you did not document what was going to happen in this game in advance.

KO coming up!

Loved listening to a Dyakowski interview on Y108 talking about how fans should take their own little piece and burn Ivor Wynne down on their way out of the stadium after the Tragically Hip concert at the end of the season to help save on demolition costs! :lol:

Oskie Wa Wa!

I don't know about your timezone, but in my timezone, were still almost an hour away from kickoff. Dont give us any spoilers, ok? :slight_smile:

I'm a geologist by trade and I forced myself to accept that a million years is considered a "short time period" by us rock lickers so something that's an hour away is always very very close hahaha :lol:

Honestly, I read somewhere that the game was starting @ 1 pm CDT lol, so I know as much as you!

Hi folks!

Thanks to BYF as always!

Tigers, eat 'em raw!

It's 3:00 in the morning here, I just got out of bed. The Tiger Cats better make getting out of bed in the middle of the night worth while.

Not a problem, Russ.

I sure hope they will.

Anyway, here are today's scratches:

Kickoff coming up...

I've changed my setup here, so I should be able to post much faster today. :wink:

Nice loud Oskeeweewee chant there.

We win the toss and defer. That "Ticats Are Hummin" song is playing. It sure was released at an unfortuante time, in the middle of a losing streak.

Game on!

Bad start as Esks start at their 50. Hopefully not a sign of things to come.

If that means you'll post more of your insights, that's good. :slight_smile:

Despite very bad snap... complete from Kerry to Cary. FD. But they only gain four more yards on the drive after that.

Shaw misses again, this time from 48.

Williams thinks about getting yet another big missed FG return, but dropped in endzone. Rouge. 1-0 EDM.

Good stop D!

Grant Shaw misses from 48,

Williams concedes the single, I bet McNight gets to try a couple today!

Avon loses 1 yard, then more yards lost as Burris gets sacked.

We add to our league lead in two and outs...

Our O-Line looks like they’ll get smoked today…

Catch the freaking ball-no tip drill for Cortez

EDM starts at their 51 after we take 15 yard no yards call.

Rwabukamba shoulda had that pick! At least 2 and out forced.

And we're last in INT's too, could have had 2 today already

Yep. That tipped pass was quite catchable.

I did see that coming...
