Will the east be competitive this year

Its a small sample size but seeing the Cats blow a lead and Ottawa not finish off the B Bombers .

I was Looking for changes this year but will it happen .

Will the east teams be over all better than the west ?

Why does It feel every year the east is always behind the west competitively ?

In a nutshell , the Eastern teams most years do not need to be as good or as competitive as the Western teams and year in and year out it glaringly shows unfortunately.

Other than the Al's with Calvio, there hasn't been a truly dominant eastern team in the last 15 years

I thought this year might come closer to parity, but I'm not seeing it to date. The season is young.
