Tiger-Cats vs. Lions: July 22, 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. Unfortunately, it seems posts keep appearing out of order at this time, as the timestamps of posts are not always accurate now. Hopefully, as little as that as possible will happen as the game is on. So anyway, here we go.

After getting that first win against last week, the Ticats look to build on that this week. If they win, there will be those who will say that this team has only been able to defeat winless teams so far. But if they lose, they'll have a 1-3 record and there will be disappointment after being defeated by a team that started out 0-3. The Lions also need this win as they look to avoid going 0-4 to start the season. They haven't been able to get many rushing yards, and have given up quite a few rushing yards. Those waiting for Cobourne to have a great game could see what they want to see tonight. But wins over BC have not always come easily this year, and so having said that, I say...
