The standings after the Divisional Finals are posted here.
The top two people qualify for the Divisional Finals. They are:
Here's a summary of the Virtual Grey Cup rules:
PICKS MUST BE MADE BY MIDNIGHT FRIDAY NIGHT.
You must make a pick in order to win.
If fewer than two participants make picks, the next highest-ranked participants to make picks will qualify, up to a total of two participants.
In the event that both participants pick the same team, the lower-ranked will have their pick changed. This is to ensure that the game will have meaning to the VGCC.
On Saturday, I will list the qualifying participants and their picks. Report any errors to me as a reply to this thread before the scheduled kickoff time.
After the Grey Cup game, the participant whose team wins the Grey Cup is the winner of the Virtual Grey Cup Challenge.
The complete rules are posted here.
Now on to the Virtual Grey Cup. In case you've been in a cave, the teams are:
Ottawa @ Edmonton
I always make picks, so this will be no exception.
EDMONTON over Ottawa. The Esks are just too good, and showed it in the Western Final.
Grey Cup Challenge in Winnipeg. :roll:
I was at the Ottawa game. It was crazy! :rockin: Go Redblacks.
Wow Really though Edmonton would be rusty after 3 weeks off. I guess Calgary's injuries were just to much to over come.
Anyway EDMONTON for the cup
I will take Ottawa for the Grey Cup... its who I'm cheering for anyway...
Leorocks picked Ottawa, so the rules (fair rules by the way) dictate that I take Edmonton. Truth is, I would have taken Edmonton anyway. So, both Leo and I get what we want. Ain't happy endings grand!
Edmonton in a cake walk. :thup: :thup: :thup:
Edmonton. They’re too good and Ottawa couldn’t beat them early in the season when Edmonton was Jekyll and Hyde they’re not going to beat them at the top of their game on a 9 game winning streak.
Another 50-50 week - what a surprise. Just goes to support that CFIO really does stand for Coin Flip, Identical Outcome.
Not that it mattered....
And just because, here's my prediction for the Grey Cup Game.
Ottawa @ Edmonton - While I will be cheering for the Redblacks - even with his apparent dissing of our coach and GM - I expect the Eskimos will be able to shut Burris down by covering his receivers better than the Ticats did, and by getting more pressure on him than our depleted defensive line could. I think it will be close, with the Eskimos running away with it near the end.
GO GOLDBLACKS! I mean REDBLACKS!
Okay, so the picks are:
leorocks - Ottawa
Neil70 - Edmonton
So the participant whose team wins is the VGCC champion for 2015.
... :thup: ..congrats Neil70
