Recommended Posts

Week 21 bye. That's a lot of time off before we host the West Final. 

Back-to-back against Calgary. Recently, we seem to get them late in the season. 

Didn't Calgary have a lot of time off at the end of the season this year..... they did okay.

I don't mind this schedule at all. Nice and balanced. Not a big fan of back to backs to end the season, but understand it. Could be some exciting football at that time of year.

Why do we play the riders three times again this year in the regular season ?...... how do they work that stuff out from season to season ?

it's almost like the league enjoys promoting rivalries...

I get the rivalry thing to a point..... I was just thinking that over a certain span of time we would have played each of the other teams the same amount of times is all.... and rivalries can happen between any teams

An the rivalry with the riders is getting stale.... like many of those fans can drag you down to their miserable level..... I would like to see a rivalry start with Calgary,  because we bumped them out of first and beat them all season.....

Just so extremely thankful for the Thurs Aug 1 game. Getting married on Sat Aug 3, and a Bombers game the same day would have caused a LOT of problems... 

Congrats!

How is it getting stale? It's arguably the most heated rivalry in the league and next season should be no different.

There's only so much that can be done with the schedule in a nine-team league.

There's alot that can be done with the schedule, but honestly the league basically works with all the rivalry games first then fills in the rest.


Historically we always play Calgary late in the season, and historically that sucks for us. 

 

3 games vs the Stamps, 3 games vs the Riders.

Those games are really going to decide whether we make the playoffs, or whether TBurgess gets to say I told you so and be miserable all year long like the old coot he is. :)

Agreed. Third year in a row we've got three games against them, with a preseason game thrown in for good measure. Four games against one team is too much.

Switch up who in the West we get those 3rd games against each year, and make our preseason games against the teams we only play twice.

You're the only person I've ever heard say that. It's a heated, historical rivalry. And is arguably the best rivalry going in the CFL.

Week 2 bye and week 21 bye is simply unfair.  You don't need a bye after the first game because you're not warn down yet.  The team basically has one beneficial bye during the season. 

Someone has to be the one who has it.

No kidding because even if they sell 10,000 tickets they will have more people in the stands than usual. LOL!

Yeah, but will they still want a franchise after seeing those two teams play? :24_stuck_out_tongue:
