Since it started Thursday(Lions won 24-22 agaisnt the Argos..)So far, i still think Calgary/Bc lions have a shot for the Grey cup..

So far, my team The Montreal Alouettes have lost against the Roughriders...Calvillo 3ints, i think Jim Popp is the only person so far who doesn't realize how Calvillo is finish.Caputo,GameOver finish.3ints first game!He has no mobility, he does lot of Flop passes....

I think we can have an other defeat in the Cfl Finals..(We'r like the Bills of the 1990's )

Gl for the season to everyone!

I wasn't serious about CFL threads... :D I think you and I may be the only ones talking here.

I think the Argos win that game if Bishop played the whole game. Why they are throwing points away by repeatedly putting Damon Allen on the field is beyond me. He should have retired in the off season. Everyone seems to know that he's lost the ability to play EXCEPT him.

As for Calvillo.... he's been so good for so long.. and he's nowhere near as old as Allen. I think he's going to at least play out the string.

I watched the Stamps vs Hamilton last night and it looks like the Tigercats are going to have just as bad a season this year as they did last year. They were awful. And Jason Maas was horrible... if he's still injured then let the other guy play. Okay, you are scared that back-up is going to steal your job... but going out there, playing hurt, and having everyone lose confidence in you isn't the way to go either... There was like 1 pass attempt over 5 yards. How are you going to win a football game throwing 5 yard passes? That could work in the NFL where they have the extra down, but that is a recipe for disaster in the CFL.

It's starting to look like every team in the Western conference deserves to be in the playoffs and everyone in the East deserves to be out of the playoffs.

I watched the end of the game..

Chang was getting better,But then he threw an Interception..And Tigers-Cats defense isn't that good..But i really like what i saw from Chang.

And..Yes , Western conference is x100 better than the Eastern one..
I'm sure Argos/Blue Bombers/Als will win the East divison and going to loose in the Grey cup.But, i think i'll give an other chance for Calvillo, because Marcel Bellefeuille changed everything in the Als attack, So i'll wait..And there's lot of Key injuries ala Dave Stala/Mathieu Proux...

If the Als can improve their Offense, then i'm going to be happy..Since their defense is good.

Oh and Btw, i'm happy to see i'm not the only Cfl fan :P

Ha! The Argos just signed Steve Christie. He's from Oakville, so he counts against the CanCon percentage.

I remember Christie from WWWWAAAAYYYY back with the Bills. What is he? 300 years old now?

I just read that on rds...He's signed for a practice..Noel Préfontaine is a great kicker, so why signing him? :noclue:

And btw, who is your favourite team?

I've been an Argos fan longer than I've been a Devils fan (25 years vs 22 years). Yeah, there were the Ottawa Renegades, but the ownership was never really interested in putting a winning team on the field. They were so worried about the bottom line that the fans never bothered showing up, including myself. *ponder* I guess the only Ottawa team I have ever really been a true fan of would be the 67s. :)

I thought maybe they wanted to trade Noel so they could bring in another American player. But I just checked and that doesn't make sense.... Noel grew up in your neck of the woods. So both Prefontaine and Christie count as Canadian. So you are right... it makes no sense.

The man is multi-talented! He can call a damn good football game and a damn good hockey game!

(So of course CBC let him go... what a bunch of inept morons)

Tomorrow night the Argos shall throttle the just as inept TigerCats.

Well, TZ, if your Allouettes don't win next week, then they never will. It looks like Hamilton are on their way to a perfect 0-18 record. So far they have been outscored 67 to 14. Four field goals and a safety. That's their total offence for TWO games.

BTW - to answer your original question, it was revealed that Prefontaine *IS* injured. Needing an emergency replacement, Pinball called an old buddy Steve Christie to come in and play in Noels absence. Christie was terrible, missing his first to attempts and botching the third leading to a turn-over. But I guess I should give the guy a break - this was his first game back since retiring three years ago.

I see they also brought in three time NFL-failure Mike McMahon to be the back-up, relegating Damon Allen to third stringer. Oh, how the mighty have fallen.

And..How he chokes with the Stampeders to win a single playoff game :rofl:

Well..If my Als loose against the Ti-Cats, our season is done.Ti-Cats offense is terrible, and i just can't see us losing against them..And yeah, i read Prefontaine was injured , so Argos signed Christie..But the problem is Christie is really horrible.I watched the first Quarter (Ti-Cats vs Argos..) And i think he missed 2FG, 40yards (....) And 47-48yards...
I just hope this season doesn't turn out like last season..Great defense, but no Offense..And , i remember last year we started 7-0..But they played the Bombers/Ti-Cats 5times...And i felt they were too overated.Then they started to lost...7-6..

Since Popp took the commands of being a Head Coach..That really made me :puke:, He's a Great GM but as a Head Coach..He's bad.The only thing he can do is: Ok, guys, we do this this this.Then in the game, its the Coordinators who are the Head Coachs, and the only thing he does is motivating...

Well...I'M sure Argos/Bombers will win the Division, and the Als will finish 3rd/4rth..

Haha, Damon didn't take it..I think he didn't talk to the Toronto reporters..But gosh, he's 43..There's a time where you swallow your pride and you retire..I mean Bishop has a great arm/mobility and i think he was a finalisy for the Heisman Trophy in 1999(Ricky Williams won it..)

Wow. Just Wow. The analysts were saying that Calgary was going to be a Grey Cup contender this year and how vaunted their offense is... but their offense SUCKS. Especially when Burris throws three INTs in a game. Brutal. Brutal. Brutal.

So another blow-out for my Argos. Though Bishop got injured.... fortunately the Argos have 3 starter-quality QBs.

48-15...

I said the Argos will win, but i was wrong about 30-27...I mean, i think this year these teams will be in the playoffs:

West:

Bc lions(Headed to the Finals)
Edmonton Eskimos vs Rougriders(Semi-Final)
Stampedes(Eliminated)

East
Argos(Headed to the finals)
Blue Bombers vs Als(Semi-Finals)
Tigers Cats

West final : Lions vs Roughriders
East final : Blue Bombers vs Argos

Grey Cup: Roughriders vs Argos Winner: Roughriders.

Hey, we were at that game and pretty loaded! The Bombers are playing at home tomorrow and I know that Stegall will break the record only because i won't be there! :doh1: I hate weddings...ughhh Hopefully Westwood is done his moping and pouting...



Yeah, i thought he would maybe break the record vs the Als...I know, you can maybe try to injure him before the game, so he'll miss the 2next games before returning home and breaking his record :D :boogie:
