It was a similar story in T'ronno. The visitors from Susquatchland were stomped on a bit in the first half but it was a lot more even in the second and another away win at the close.

A team with a 6-match losing streak faced one which had lost 7 matches on the trot. It was Canadian Thanksgiving Monday and it was chucking it down with rain in Montreal, just to cheer everyone up a bit more.
In a Liberal-Democrap world, it would have been a tie so that one unhappy side didn't become happier at the expense of an even more unhappy side.
In a Communist world, the Eskimos would have lost because all workers have to be equal.
In the real world, it was the Alouettes who lost because they're not very good at the moment. But before anyone gets too dismal, look what the Redblacks did last year after a horrible year before that.
You never know in the CFL. [But really? The Als winning the Grey Cup next year? Come on!!]

And the last shall be first . . . FNF replay: the Ticats in Winnipeg [recorded from ESPN]
I tried to record the live broadcast of this match but two crap baseball teams got stuck at 8-all for an hour and a half, which meant that the recroding was minus the whole of the first half and over 50% of the second half. Recording the edited version was the alternative to getting up at 6 a.m. on Sunday after going to bed at 3 a.m. after watching the Redblacks play the Lions.

This was a weekend for wins by visiting teams, which means that as the TiCats have fired every coach in sight, and presumably kicked a lot of butt in the playing staff, they started the whole thing off by never looking in any danger of losing to the Bombers and not establishing themselves as the runners-up in the East.

The [phrase withheld] running BT Sport, in their infinite wisdom, chose not to give us even the edited version of the Stampeders in Hamilton but when I started viewing a recording of the next match, which should have begun at 3 a.m., we were still in Hamilton, there were 57 seconds on the clock and the Cats had saved their challenge to the last minute to get the Stamps for DPI in their goal. On to a TD and 25-all.

The Stamps had 30 seconds to get a FG. The Cats were done for DPI with 00 on the clock, FG, 28-25 final but the Stampeders are not looking all that mighty if they have to squeak one against lowly Hamilton.

That was a real sickener for the Roughriders! But then, no lead is safe in the CFL and the Redblacks had winning their division on their minds. 33-32 final in Regina.

Had the RBs done the Eskimos a favour? They were playing the Argos at home, where they hadn't won since August, according to the amazed comments of the comms. The way their receivers were dropping passes, it's not surprising. Zylstra earned his MoP rating for the match, and Walker managed to hang on to one when it counted. So the Esks are in with a crossover chance, at least.

That was a rather curious Friday night massacre in Calgary, which became a snow match. (well, almost) Are the Riders suddenly good or were the Stamps hanging back for bets now they're sure of the No. 1 spot in the West? Whatever, they got a good clobbering and 89 Duron Carter of SK was a worthy MoP.

We had a real thriller in BC on Saturday night. Apparently, Mike Reilly's problem is that he has all these weapons but only one football.
Bowman was back on form for the Eskimos, Rainey was still on form for the Lions and it was a FG missed for a single point which let the Esks make it 29-all at the end of regulation time.
Oh, joy when OT was over!
