Tiger-Cats vs. Roughriders: July 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 and will have to watch the game on television can discuss the game with their fellow Ticat fans here. So here we go.

This season has not quite started out the way the Ticats wanted it to, with that 0-2 start. And they are looking to avoid an 0-3 start, against another team that has that same goal. The Ticat offence has disappointed, but the Rider defence has not done well at all these first two games. If there is a defence that this offence needs to go up against, it may well be this Rider defence. In the game preview on Ticats TV, it was said the team was focusing on itself and on what it needed to do. This team needs to focus on what it has done wrong, and what can be done to correct it. But they must also know their opponents, as they look to prove that they are not as bad as those first two games may indicate.
