All I know is I made the playoffs last year in the pool run by BigDave and made the final four. This year has been vastly different, and only a miracle would get me a playoff position now. The games are closer this year and I've been coming up on the short end of most of the close games this year. I'm not complaining, just frustrated by my lack of expertise this year. A few weeks back when there were two one point games, I came up on the short end of each of those games. Not a good sign for making the playoffs.
Therefore the notion about betting on CFL games, I don't think I would do so this year. Also about parity, I think that's part of the equation, also some guys have come through that may not have been expected to in such a big way, and guys who you would expect to lead their teams have been somewhat disappointing this season. In other words, welcome to the wonderful and truly unpredictable world of professional football.
