Re: Re:

Wait. You mean that soccer isn't actually going to overwhelm the sports marketplace in Toronto and render the Argos an afterthought that would have to slink out to London or Moncton or fold up the tent completely after all? Shocking. Who ever said that? I think that Ping might have but he has obvio...

Re: If You Could Change 1 Rule For Next Year, What Would It

If you throw an interception why should you be rewarded with a point? But then seeing as you get rewarded for missing a field goal that might actually make sense. Regarding the rouge, you are properly rewarded for moving the ball down the field. That is an excellent rule that should never be change...

Re: Trestman going to NFL ?

I will be pulling for the Bears next year for sure, I wish Marc lots of luck and hope he can turn Cutler into a elite NFL QB. It's going to be weird not seeing Mr Trestman on the sidelines in Montreal. I would like to see Marcel Bellefeuille get another shot at HC in the league maybe he will get a ...

Re: Future Grey Cup Location Speculation Thread

I dunno, seems too close together considering the normal lack of interest in the cfl from those cities. I don't mind waiting every 8 years. makes it more special. You know what? I'm agreeing with this, give Montreal a few losing seasons and watch the interest drop if it was the same 3 cities repeat...

Re: If You Could Change 1 Rule For Next Year, What Would It

You guys are missing the point about the single point. The way to look at it is that you get a point for kicking the ball into the endzone and limiting the return and you get two bonus points if you kick it through the uprights. One rule change I would make is to force teams to kickoff from their ow...

Re: New jerseys across the league

Hate the boring retro stripes on Hamilton, Toronto, and Edmonton. ... Yeah, those three kind of went with the 70s/80s cookie-cutter, throw-some-stripes-on-the-sleeves-and-call-it-a-day design approach. The best uniforms IMO are the ones from the 1970s and 1980s. I am not totally crazy about Edmonto...

Also ... TFC got 45,000+ on a Wednesday. The Jays home opener will fill the place on a mid week game I believe. Yet we'll hear from Argo fans that the schedule is bad because they can't draw a crowd for a weeknight game. Well it's proven in Toronto ... if you give people a reason to come they come....

Re: Watch out Argos, TFC becoming tast of the town.

TFC also restricts the sale of season tickets because of the huge demand. I don't buy this. TFC had a fair number of empty seats last season as people became bored of their constant losing. It is great for them that they are doing well in this tournament but they have yet to prove that they are any...

They ended up with over 33k which isn't bad at all for a semi-final IMO.

Don;t know if an O-lineman has ever won the rookie award. Can anybody think of one?

I believe that Nick Benjamin was at least the East's nominee for top rookie back in the mid 1980s. He might have even won but I can't recall.

Re: What's up with Jyles not being healthy??

I gotta say that I feel duped. When Jyles and Barker did the interviews after the trade they said that Jyles was ready to go! But now he's not. They're taking it day-by-day. He'll be ready when he's ready. I have heard no reports that Jyles re-injured himself between now and then. What's up with th...

Re: 100th Grey Cup Gloom and Doom from Perry Lefko

I am not sure what Perry is going on about here either. The last Grey Cup in Toronto sold out fairly easily and this one will likely sell out even faster. I really don't think that he has anything to worry about with Vancouver this year either. The issue of having Grey Cups with attendance problems ...
