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.

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.
