the ugly part of the game... they were tied in wins/losses going into the game. So no matter who won they were playing for worst and second worst in the league adn with 6 more games to go they could still end up at the top of the league before the year is out. God we really need more teams or more games in this league.

I'd LOVE to see more teams in the CFL. I'd say Victoria, Quebec City, Halifax and London would be good new cities. Add Ottawa back into the mix.

We'd probably have to change the ratios a bit, but it could be done IMO.

We couldn't afford all the new stadiums, what with the Feds having to kick in for all of them to remain fair. Wink

OR, JTF... consider this.... they play at existing stadiums until such time as they make enough money to build their own stadiums and build a following from fans.

I know I know crazy concept eh?

Thats crazy talk. Things like that only worked in the good old days. Back when men were men and sheep ran scared.

Suspicious Substance Found

Winnipeg, Manitoba

Winnipeg Blue Bomber football practice was delayed on Monday for nearly two hours at Canada Inns Stadium. One of the players, while on his way to the locker room, happened to look down and notice a suspicious looking, unknown white powdery substance on the field.

The head coach immediately suspended practice while the RCMP were called in to investigate. After a complete field analysis, the RCMP determined that the white substance, unknown to the players, was the goal line.

Practice was resumed when the RCMP decided that the team would not be likely to encounter the substance again.

I don't have numbers on hand, but a stadium like the bombers play in probably isn't as costly as a hockey stadium. Perhaps a referendum in the possible cities to see if there's enough buy in to build the stadium....

Note: There is no 3-way tie for the final playoff spot.
For the crossover to work, the 4th place team from the West must have MORE points than the 3rd place in the East (or visa versa).
Since Edmonton, Winnipeg and Hamilton each have 12 points, the crossover system won't apply. (Both Winnipeg and Hamilton, will make the playoffs)

Kelly said that he hasn't changed anything. The players are just buying into the system. I hope it's true.

Things have changed though. The Bombers started to win once Kelly stopped calling the plays and they finally started to use 5 receiver sets.
