Virtual Grey Cup Challenge, Week 8

The bye weeks are over. Thank goodness. They proved to be quite a challenge for most of us, with only prairiedog72 and Rattler guessing all four games correctly. (Way to go, you guys!) The standings are posted here.

Now everything is back to normal, with four games each week until the playoffs.

For those new to the forum, here's a rundown of the rules:
To join in, just start making picks.
Reply to this thread with your picks for the games. You're encouraged to elaborate, but only the predicted winners are taken into account, and your picks must be clear at a glance without having to read a big long post. There are no conditional picks allowed.
Picks must be in by the scheduled kickoff time, or they will not be counted.
To change your picks, post a new message to the thread. Do not edit your original post.
The complete rules are posted here.

12-12 :roll: :? I might as well have been flipping a coin all season. A coin flip is not gambling and is not fun. In Vegas when I lived there, whenever the odds were 50-50 it was no dice for me because I might as well have been flipping a coin.

I'll be damned if I go 2-2 again, so I am going to abstain because Hamilton and Winnipeg have pissed me off the most in my picks.

And for those of you who want to whine about the infamous abstain, well go cry first to all the guys who did not make picks for 24 games who had also abstained already. :slight_smile:

Hamilton @ Winnipeg
Montreal @ Edmonton
Toronto @ Calgary
Saskatchewan @ B.C.

I guess it just flies over your head that the point is to make picks... :roll:
