2018 CFL Season: The March for 106

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if adding a 10th team would help resolve the issue.  Having only 9 teams and an 18 game schedule does make things tricky.

Speaking about trades in the CFL: this one happened.

Toronto's not doing anything this year, so, whatever. That said, I don't like the policy that they don't name the player on the negotiation list. I guess it means nothing if the player doesn't sign but I'd like to know for who/why Toronto moved one of their better players.

Jerome Messam has been charged with Voyeurism and has been released by Saskatchewan. He will not be able to sign with any other teams

Manziel not having a good game so far. 3 picks so far. One overthrow, one not identifying the LB and one off the hands of a WR. He made a good tackle though.

Saskatchewan has released Duron Carter. It makes me wonder if it's so he can pursue NFL opportunities

Another reason I love the CFL, summarized not even in one play, but in what happens after the play...

 

The Edmonton Eskimos Touchdown Tunnel

Wow, I guess Whistle Sports has American viewers banging down their doors to steal their CFL footage...now that's just kind of sad!

What's not sad though is that this morning, the CFL announced that effective immediately, touchdown celebrations like that one, or the ones in Winnipeg, would no longer constitute Objectionable Conduct fouls.

 

Another rouge in favor of watching the CFL.

It's been a month since anything's been posted here, but I thought I'd resurrect the thread to ask a question that I've wanted answered since the start of the season.  What is on the back side of the field goal posts at BMO?  Is it advertising?  Is it cable?  Despite seeing (I think) every Argos home game this year, I've yet to see a shot of the goalposts tight enough that I could tell what they've got going on there.

Do you have a pic? I think it's cable but i'm not certain that I can picture it despite having been there a few times this year?

No, but there's a game going on right now.  Just watch it and you'll see what I'm talking about.

Okay.  My two preferred (I don't have a true favorite) CFL teams - Montreal, and now Toronto - are essentially out of playoff contention.  I'm torn between as to root for between Edmonton, Hamilton and Ottawa the rest of the way.  Any suggestions, CFL'ers?

Hamilton's last Grey Cup triumph was in 1999. So go with them. 

 

By the way, it does look like part of the cabling that helps hold up the netting.

There is no netting.  Whatever this is, it runs down both goalposts, across the crossbar, and down the center post.

I guess I don't pay attention enough to the CFL to even notice that they don't use nets. Oh well.

You should.  The Hamilton Tiger-Cats and British Columbia Lions played an absolutely wild game tonight.  They began the fourth quarter with one team leading 17-11.  At the end of the fourth, it was 29-29 thanks to (i) a touchdown scored with :00 on the clock, followed by (ii) a two-point conversion that they had to spend 5 minutes conducting a replay review on (which you'd think would be boring, but trust me - it wasn't)... and without giving away the ending, it wound up going into double overtime.

Hamilton is a huge rival of Toronto, and Ottawa is same division.

 

 

Leaves Edmonton as the only choice. However, if you factor in the controversy around their use of the name Eskimos, that also might be an issue for you.
