CyberCat, you just nailed it.
The weather doesn't matter a lot. its a "fenonimen" (sp?) that cannot be escaped in sports, but both teams are faced with the same thing, just as we were with Saskatchewan last weekend. We showed we can counter "wind" last week, the Spies play in it all the time.
Neither does the "noise" get as important. Wpg Stadium is way more open, and the fans much further from the field, sound is reduced as a factor as a function of a cube, (ie the third power), so it gets down to a few different things.
"Heart" not "coaching". The Bombers are in "rebuild" and a bunch of their players understand they are being let go
Injuries, more than weather play their part. Their guys got pretty banged up against the Larks in a "nothing" game, and you must wonder if the key guys will return, or be re-injured at any giving point. The Cats seem pretty healthy, and the light blue jobs seem troubled. Their top reciever is questionable, and their QB is prime game for a hit
Their secondary is questionable with injuries, their big return guy is hurting.
I hope that "Fred X" is going to come to understand that its just not going to get there, or that the Tabbie DLine knows how to contain him.
Beat up on Bishop, as he's their only hope, the backup is hopeless.
Secure passing for our O. Their secondary are ballhawks, depending on who is fit to dress and play...the flu swept through Saskatchewan last week...it could hit either team this Sunday.
The Weather? Too easy to get through.
All the other issues?
A pretty complex pile. Is MB up to it, let alone the team?
I think we need to bet the mortgage on it.
Kevin Glenn and Greg Marshall know where to exploit that team, and Otis Floyd is just raring to show what they can do.
Carefully select "HAMILTON" on the Sports Select ticket this week, and bet heavy and often
