One commentator appears to not quite know the crossover rule. He believes that the 4th place team in one division can only cross over and bump the 3rd place team in the other division by having more wins. My understanding is the team has to have more points, like one more point. Montreal can cross over if it has one or more total points than the 3rd place team in the west.
The one that really got me going was hearing the two commentators during the overtime segment between the Eskies and Lions. It was the first mini-game and the Eskies move the ball down to around the Lions 10 yard line. It was about 3rd and 1, maybe 3rd and 2.
One commentator kept saying the Eskies coach had a decision to make. He had a decision to make. What decision?? The other thought it "might be worth going for it". Hello? What was there to think about? What decision was there to make? Why would any coach in his right mind gamble on 3rd and one in overtime? If the Eskies gambled and failed, the ball goes over to the Lions and it is their turn to start at the 35. All the Lions kicker would have to do is boot the ball through the end zone and the Lions win the game.
Am I missing something when it comes to the overtime in the CFL?
Man, it is bad enough being a Lions fan and watching the Lions come up with every conceivable way of losing a game but then to hear the commentators saying the stuff they say?? Sheesh!
