I was at the game. There was never really a sense that Montreal was a threat. Pretty glad as a Stamps fan that we get to see them again in 11 days, as I suspect Montreal will get their stuff together sooner than later, so Week 3 is a good time.

Last year, Calgary was plagued by not being able to finish off scoring drives. Based on this game, it seems as if Hamilton now has the same affliction. Hmmmm.

2012 Predictions

OK, I'll be the first to go out on a limb with my predictions for who will finish where in each division. West 1. B.C. (12-6) 2. Calgary (10-8) 3. Edmonton (9-9) 4. Saskatchewan (6-12) East 1. Montreal (11-7) 2. Hamilton (9-9) 3. Toronto (8-10) 4. Winnipeg (6-12) I think the Cup is B.C.'s to lose. S...

Of course you are right. Something else big in sports happened in the Fall of 1972. :) The Stamps didn't win again until 1992; looks like I transposed those final digits.

For me, the 1972 Grey Cup with the infamous Leon McQuay fumble around the 5 yard line which would secure the cup for my Stamps for the first time in my lifetime (and for a long time thereafter). Keeling, Harris, Linterman — good times. My only memory before that is of the opening theme and visuals t...

Flames Majority Owner of Stamps

Not a great day yesterday, what with Ken King and the Flames ownership group taking over majority ownership (some say as high as 75%) of the Calgary Stampeders. Most disquieting were some of King's remarks, referring to the Stamps as a "brand" and that the Flames organization wanted to own the Stamp...

2011 Predictions

Although some have already discussed who will challenge Montreal for first in the East ( http://www.13thman.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=36693 ), I haven't seen anyone make full standings predictions for the league. So I'll start: West 1. B.C. - after an embarrassing first half of 2010, the Leos look for...

The rule change only applies to passes downfield. If the pass is caught behind the line of scrimmage, you can block below the waist.

Rule Changes for 2011

Here are the details from CFL.ca: http://cfl.ca/article/2011-cfl-rule-changes-approved The short version: 1. Increased use of replay in two specific situations which now allow the ball to be awarded to the opponents after review. 2. No blocking below the waist after a completed pass downfield 3. Pun...

Re: Replay Needs To Change… Again

I too thought that it was inconclusive, Al, but somebody posted a screenshot on esksfans.com that showed that Cates' elbow was indeed down just before the ball came out The screenshot ( http://www.thewritingwizard.net/images/play2.jpg ) is a little blurry and the red circles added obscure some thin...

Re: Congrats Montreal.

As soon as you find a legit starting QB, you'll be challenging us for first next year. If you believe the fans on the post-game radio show here in Calgary, the Argos should trade for Henry Burris. Hey, how about Chad Owens for Burris? Calgary hasn't had a breakout return guy since, uh, uh… OK, we h...

Replay Needs To Change… Again

Readers of this Board may recall that I am generally opposed to the use of replay on the grounds that it changes the way the referees call the game (and not for the better). I am resigned to the fact that replay is here to stay for the near term, but either the way it is administered needs to change...

Esks / Bombers end of game fiasco

It's about 10 minutes after the completion of the game when I write this and I think I have figured out what Paul LaPolice and Kavis Reed were going ballistic over. The game clock should have been running during the disputed play which led to a time count violation. If the TSN clock was hooked in to...

Re: Sept 17 Stamps @ Riders GDT

Sure looks like last weeks 2 point game was a fluke for the Riders and a lucky break for the Bombers. We'll see about the Bombers half of the equation this weekend, but Sask's loss last week was no fluke. Sask has only won once on the road this season (an early season win in B.C.), so it was only t...
