I agree about the defense overall this year, but in this game at least they were better at stopping the run until the last Alouette drive.
My name is Argolio, and I approved this post.

THAT call was BS! The Argos were lucky to get that.

It was DOWN BY CONTACT!!! Even Cuthbert, said it was. But, the Refs overuled it. I don't want to hear any whining, about the refs or luck any more.

Being a Saskatchewan Roughrider fan this season would make you an expert on lucky calls or BS calls favouring your team. :popcorn:

Don't worry, you'll be seeing more posts from me in the upcoming weeks when the Riders start to swoon. An exaggerated lucky 6-1 record has actually given your team a false sense of security of believing that your invincible. Keep drinking that Kool-aid for now, :marg: Once the losing streak happens, all the Rider bandwagoners will be hopping off and feeling like this :puke: after too much of this :marg: .


The Riders can start their swoon in earnest after they play the Bombers twice.
There is one thing that no Argo fan should ever forget - Rob Ford, Doug Ford, Paul Godfrey, Phil Lind and Larry Tanenbaum are all pure evil!

I am getting sick of the blown calls after a review, we had one against BC and one other iirc, what the heck is wrong with this picture, if the calls would have been against the Riders the league would have stepped in due to the flak they would get (which is how it should be), unfortunately Als fans are not near the numbers and passion about it, so the thing gets swept under the rug. Really not impressed by some review, even with the video they suck this year.

Yeah, and who was missing? :wink:

3 pages without me, double or triple that more with me, but I'm so bad for gameday threads according to some here. :devil:

Not even Terencious with his endless whining about missed Holding calls on the Riders and insults to other teams can carry a thread.

FULL CREDIT to the Als in a dominating win. You guys really are the class of the east, no denying it. :clap:

Any who said the Als would suffer under Trestman, myself included, were totally WRONG. They avoid their long overdue tour of the East basement for another year.

Looks like Als fans will have a double treat this year, they will Host the Final, and probably see their team in the GC, making up for 2001.

My poor Argos are gonna be in hard to make 2nd if they keep playing like this. Something must be done in the break. Good thing the Ticats can't beat anyone else.

It was great seeing Eric again and meeting D for the first time last night! Thanx to GCG for bringing him down to the tailgate and not hogging him all to yourself. :wink:

I would not bet anything on the east being locked by Als including the GC, teams do rebound quickly in this league. I can easily see the any eastern improving by some key move and upsetting us or even grabbing the first place we currently hold.
I was geat seing all the Argos fans at the tailgate, you guys seem to have a nice little thing going there.

1. It can easily be denied.

2. They'd be in the basement if others were aiming for first place

3. Als fans will host the East Final and watch their team lose. It's all by design (ala, 2004)

4. Argos already have 2nd locked up and a birth in the East Final. They should have no trouble beating Saskatchewan in the East Semi like they did before.

5. Eric was here? All I saw was a movie star that we stalked on his way back to his hotel. :cowboy:

6. We also know for a fact that Jonathan Brown didn't get a sack last night. (right Alex?) :wink:

Oh Eric, such false modesty! You know the Als are a lock on the east, admit it and boast all you like! Sit back, smoke a cigar and enjoy first place, it's all yours... :canada:

It's football, and the CFL on top of it, the differential to be first is not big enough to claim such a thing, and locking a race this early is un cfl ;)

A nice 30,000 crowd takes in yet another Argos clunker. You could count on one hand how many plays they made. Hopefully, one day, 50,000 will.
