Of course these two match up well, of note there are 4 areas where there is a noticeable difference.
1) kicking... need I say more, but they say McLoughlin will suit up... confirmation tomorrow, vs. fleming who hit, what, 5for5 last game.
crowd noise... under the dome even tho we'll draw only 40000+ it gets loud under there and the fans that end up going have a desire to release alot of pent up frustration and grief at the Eskimos. The frustation and grief, by the way, is because of the Leos last 7 game tailspin... it will be loud (BRING :evil: NOISE!!)
momentum, good ol' mo... Edmonton has it, keep the game slow advantage: Edmonton. Leos get a quick start, advantage: Leos. Watch both D's to get in the QB's faces. Lots of talk onfield too. It's gonna' get nasty, baby! Stanky-assty nasty!!
incentive... you really think there is a remote possibility that any one single Lion, waterboy included, wants the Eskis to represent the West using THEIR dressing room? Put the two losses to the Esks aside, this is plain and simple pig-headed pride.
You have a chance to host The Show in your House... if you give up the House... son, you have just been emasculated.
... oh yeah, I forgot about the last one:
uniforms... the Leos look sharp, baby. Lookin' good enuff to host The SHOW!!!!
