  1. Hmmmm. "While the Ticats ranked second in the CFL with a plus-eight turnover ratio in 2019, they failed to maintain a positive ratio over the second half of the season, finishing minus-three over the last nine games. Meanwhile, the Ticats threw the second most interceptions in the league, including 13 from Dane Evans." https://www.cfl.ca/2019/11/19/numbers-dont-lie-3-stats-will-define-grey-cup-3/
  2. Collaros is the wildcard for me - he's been very impressive and I don't think the Cats can stack the box on us anymore. I actually don't want Streveler in if he's not going to throw or hand-off with some regularity (or if we're up by 20 with 5 minutes to go). Too bad Calgary got their half-foot of snow today instead of this Sunday.
  3. When I did notice Jefferson on the re-watch, he seemed positioned to prevent CoFaj from escaping to his left with that spin move. I'm not convinced he didn't do anything despite being held off the stats sheet.
  4. Rewatched the West Final last night and one thing struck me. Shaq Evans looks like a beast, but he was so weak on his feet. Winston Rose looked to be giving up all sorts of pounds on him but was throwing him around like a rag doll and tackling him with one arm.
  5. I dunno, but I've noticed that Collaros has realized that Wolitarski is an option. Good to see.
  6. The home page of the Wall Street Journal (far from a leftist rag) earlier today doesn't look so good for Trump.
  7. So the Kenney War Room/Inquiry against environmentalists is really just a way to reward loyalists. Colour me shocked. Inquiry commissioner Steve Allan handed $905K sole-source contract to son's law firm CBC News · Posted: Nov 14, 2019 6:00 AM MT | Last Updated: November 14 The commissioner heading Alberta's public inquiry into allegations of foreign-funded reputational attacks on the province's oil and gas industry personally handed $905,000 in legal business to a Calgary law firm in which his son is a partner. The contract was issued 11 days after Allan was named by Premier Jason Kenney to head the $2.5 million Public Inquiry Into Funding of Anti-Alberta Energy Campaigns. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/edmonton/inquiry-commissioner-steve-allan-handed-905k-sole-source-contract-to-son-s-law-firm-1.5358866
  8. Playing the Riders after their bye week is much more preferable than playing the Stampeders after a bye week. I was relieved that the Riders won the West after we couldn't.
  9. I get that speculation is fun and all, but no one can accurately say how well or badly the Bombers would have fared if Nichols didn't get hurt.
  10. So I took a little time to check the box scores of the 3 Wpg-SSK games and I really don't care if Fajardo plays or at what percentage of 110% he will be able to play, as long as the Bombers win the turnover battle. The Bombers won T.O.P. in every game: 33:16/26:44 L 34:26/25:34 W 30:16/29:44 L 97:58/82:02 Total. (We had the ball an entire quarter more, over 3 games). Total offense for all 3 games showed a difference of just 14 yards (1058/1072) 347/370 341/303 370/399 So how did we lose 2 of 3? Labour Day was just a blown game, but even with Streveler, it could be argued that our offense was more solid based on the TOP. Streveler threw interceptions on the Wpg40 and the SK35. Fajardo threw picks on the Wpg12 and Wpg29, so both teams gave up good opportunities. No lost fumbles that game. Game 2's win was clean and dominant for Winnipeg's offense. Fajardo threw a pick at the Wpg14 and fumbled on the S40. TOP was not close. Game 3's loss: All I'm going to say is Streveler threw picks on the SK17, the SK goal line and fumbled at the SK 29. SK did not turn over the ball that game. Even with Streveler (and without Harris for 2 of 3) we controlled the clock. Just some unfortunate and untimely TO's did the Bombers in. Fajardo (while better than I think we give him credit for) and the SK offense do not strike a lot of fear in me.

  12. The climate chain reaction that threatens the heart of the Pacific By Simon Denyer and Chris Mooney Photos and videos by Salwan Georges Graphics by John MuyskensNOV. 12, 2019 "The salmon catch is collapsing off Japan’s northern coast, plummeting by about 70 percent in the past 15 years. The disappearance of the fish coincides with another striking development: the loss of a unique blanket of sea ice that dips far below the Arctic to reach this shore. The twin impacts — less ice, fewer salmon — are the products of rapid warming in the Sea of Okhotsk, wedged between Siberia and Japan. The area has warmed in some places by as much as 3 degrees Celsius since preindustrial times, making it one of the fastest-warming spots in the world, according to a Washington Post analysis of data from the nonprofit organization Berkeley Earth. That increase far outstrips the global average and exceeds the limit policymakers set in Paris in 2015 when they aimed to keep Earth’s average temperature rise “well below” 2 degrees Celsius. The rising temperatures are starting to shut down the single most dynamic sea ice factory on Earth. The intensity of ice generation in the northwestern Sea of Okhotsk exceeds that of any single place in the Arctic Ocean or Antarctica, and the sea ice reaches a lower latitude than anywhere else on the planet. Its decline has a cascade of consequences well beyond Japan as climate dominoes begin to fall. When sea ice forms here, it expels huge amounts of salt into the frigid water below the surface, creating some of the densest ocean water on Earth. That water then sinks and travels east, carrying oxygen, iron and other key nutrients out into the northern Pacific Ocean, where marine life depends on it." "For fisherman Nobuo Sugimura, 63, the changing climate is evident in his steadily diminishing catch. At home after a fishing trip on Miura’s vessel the Hokushin Maru, Sugimura brought out his logbooks and diaries, pulling records for his most recent catch in late September and for the same period seven years ago. In 2012, Sugimura’s records show he and fellow crew members brought in between 21 and 52 metric tons of fish per day. This year, the catch one day was a meager six tons." "Salmon are highly sensitive to changes in water temperature. As they swim into the Sea of Okhotsk at the start of their long migration across the Pacific, the warmer waters act as a force field, pushing them off their ancient track. Compelled to travel faster and farther to reach cooler northern waters, the young salmon use up stores of energy when they can least afford it. If they delay their departure date, they won’t survive at all." https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/2019/world/climate-environment/climate-change-japan-pacific-sea-salmon-ice-loss/
  13. I heard a radio interview with Penton a few months back and I could not believe how out of touch he was with the current CFL. I'm guessing his insiders are somewhere between Knute Rockne and Jackie Parker.
  14. The hardest working man in America, though.
  15. Daniel Dale is quickly becoming Canada's best export.
