If any forum members attended tonight's playoff rally, please let us know what you thought of the event...

I attended and thought it was pretty good.

I arrived about 6:40 and there was a good boisterous crowd, both on the floor surrounding the stage and on the second floor overlooking the stage.

Great to see some of the cheerleaders and all the players listed (plus the coach). They seemed to be enjoying themselves.

Baggs seems quite the character and it was a treat to have the players stick around to sign autographs afterwards.

Also thought 30 minutes was adequate otherwise it would have dragged on and the enthusiasm seemed forced as all was said that had to be said.

Only critique was Pigskin Pete was too loud (IMO)... no need to shout into an already amplified mic.

Thanks for putting it on.

i took some video which i’m uploading tonight and i’ll post here tomorrow. :smiley:

Enjoyed it a lot and got some autographs for my retro leather helmet. I hope the smiles I saw on the players face tonight last until well after Sundays affair!

I took my youngest and we both thought it was great. I was quite impressed with the turn out especially since a lot of people didn’t know about it. It was also great to see a large number of players there. My daughter is officially in love with Stevie Baggs lol. I have to say he is just as nice in person as he is in interviews. He made my daughter’s day. It was great for her to get a chance to talk to the guys and get an autograph. I’m pleased to announce that she is now showing a lot more interest in football (if only her sister would give up the fight already lol). My favourite part was watching Dylan Barker chant his own name as he was coming out… Classic!

Seriously though, it was great to hear what some of the guys had to say and to have a chance to show our support and chat with them. I expect another one (bigger and better) after we win on Sunday!!!

I took my wife and 10 year old daughter.

I thought it was a good crowd. I particularly liked the looks on the faces of unsuspecting shoppers who had no idea what the hell was going on. Especially when Pigskin was screaming into the mic. Hahahaha. It must of been rather frightening for some.

Wish I could've seen that! Great idea by the team. Hope to see more stuff like that!

That was the best Pep rally I've been to in years !

I loved the atmosphere, the good choice of music, the introductions by Rick Zamperin and the overall setting with the two levels of fans due to the upper floor overlooking the main floor and stage area.

I loved the great singing voice of Baggs (lol) and found the Head Coach's speech very inspirational.

The Tiger Towels are pretty cool also. (yellow is better than last year's black in my opinion)

All in all Limeridge Mall proved to be an excellent choice of location.

Thanks to the Tiger-Cats for a really fun time ! :cowboy:

I thought is was awesome also, the ticats gave away a lot of free stuff. That poster of Pig Skin is GREAT !! I also got the set of cards in a poster, AWESOME!

The atmosphere was amazing.

I am 41 years old and felt like a kid again !!
