Tiger-Cats vs. Eskimos Play-by-Play Game Thread: 9/16/2011

Tiger-Cats vs. Eskimos: September 16, 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 can discuss the game with their fellow Ticat fans here. So 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 improve their record to 6-5 and keep up with Winnipeg and Montreal in the standings.

WHERE - Ivor Wynne Stadium in Hamilton, Ontario.

WHEN - Friday, September 16th, 2011, at 7:30 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 20% probability of precipitation this evening and winds of 5 km/h are expected. And at time this was posted, it was expected that the temperature will be about 12 degrees Celsius.

After looking anything but impressive in Montreal, the Ticats look to bounce back and get back above .500 again. A win will not come easily, as it has only been five days since the last game, and the Esks are not an easy team to beat. But the Esks don't tend to do well at IWS, and the Ticats will be out to prove that that wasn't the real Ticat team in Montreal last Sunday. It is quite important that the Ticats win, as it doesn't get easier with next week's game being in Moncton against a team that is undefeated outside of its own stadium. And of course, a loss would put them below .500, which is exactly what they want to avoid. And so having said that, the only thing left to be said in this thread-starting post is....

Go Ticats!

Thanks as always, BYF!

I will likely join the game thread during the second half tonight.

Oski Wee Wee,


Nice fall weather this evening it appears.

Go Cats ! 8)

Great job as always, BYF.

Some are calling this a must-win.

Oskie Wee Wee!

Defence has to play solid or we have no chance. Don't know what the Eskies will bring but they'll be ready I'm sure.

Pre Game is on now!

Hi Earl:

The offence has to at least have some drives because the lasttime they played the Esks the Cats defence was on the field way too long. So they have to have a solid performance as well…

Hi Half:

That hour between 6 and 7 is all so long!!!!!!!!!!!

Evening old fan... the last hour is always the longest...lol

TSN is showing the Chris Williams feature!!!!

15 minutes to go....I think the Eskies are under more pressure than the cats.

Great piece on C Williams.. MAN can he jump!!

5'8" and he can dunk a basketball!!

Happy Birthday Chris!!!

Looking for the defence to stop some drives and the offense to maintain some drives

Thanks for the compliments, Russ and Ock.

That was great. Drew said it all when he said Williams is not just fast, he's FAST!

And those slam dunks are YouTube material, which is what it looks like much of his career will be. Let's hope he can celebrate his birthday with a win tonight.

I thought Bakari would sit this out after all those drops.

Kickoff coming up!

Kick off!!!!

GO CATS!!!!!!!

:rockin: :thup: :rockin: :thup: :rockin: :thup: :rockin:

For short week, this one sure dragged waiting for this game.

Let’s go, Cats!

I know i should be there but....the crowd looks brutal

JJ offside on the kickoff, moves the kickoff back 5 yards.

If Marcel said about last Sunday's game "don't overanalyze, learn" that was good, I totally agree with him.

Armstead with better return than I remember him ever getting for us, EDM starts by their 45.

Smoes go 2 and out!

Whoa! Bo was looking at the ball on that play. :wink:
