Toronto, ON
Argos were completely outclassed by the Als tonight. The Als defence bent on occasion but stopped the Argos sputtering offence to just FGs. The Argos couldn't do anything on defence. When they made a good play the refs flew a flag. They were constantly burned by the same play over and over. It's a common play to beat the blitz and Montreal did just that.

The stupidest play happened with the Als at 2nd and 20. They did a drop kick for 1 foot and then they fell on it. This reset the downs to 1st and 10. This is a stupid play. Bush league rule. You should need to kick it to first down line to get first down.

I did say that the Riders should have gone with Shea Patterson and Mason Fine. Now they have lost Harris and can't go back to Fine because they don't want to look stupid for cutting him in the first place. Better to stick with the "he's no goode" than bring him back and give him a shot. Meanwhile perfect timing for Harris who had the team off to a good start despite not being particularly instrumental in the wins. Now it's up to Patterson with Jack Coan and Eric Barriere behind him. Now the story becomes can Harris return to save the season and be renewed for another two years.

I'm taking Toronto this week.

1 of 9 CFL experts picked Sask to beat the Argos. Nice for the team to know they can win games with Shea Patterson.

Toronto did themselves few, if any, favours.

I think they lost it with those 3 4th quarter INT/gifts.
Momentum swung on the Janarion Grant run called back due to a face mask violation. Dukes threw an interception on the next play.

It wasn't all bad for the Argos. Nick Arbuckle showed good presence in the short time he got. Dukes might have a shorter rope next time out.

Listening to the Bomber pre-game with Derek Taylor and they are calling for a suspension for the Calgary lineman who hit Collaros. Typical.

125 yds passing by each team sums it up.

CFL needs to stop letting former City of Winnipeg cop Al Bradbury run the Command Center video replay of Bomber games. Despite clear evidence to the contrary they were not able to overturn a forward pass called a lateral on the field. Huge play at the time and maybe play of the game.

Six field goals is not really something teams are trying to do but good on Castillo for making three 50 ydrs. Keeps the standings close if nothing else.

No way is Jake Maier a better QB than Bo Levi Mitchell. Maybe just an unbelievable lack of imagination with calling plays. 67 yds in the second half.

Tommy Stevens looked good. Still beat the 10.5 point spread.

Some nice signings in the last week with Lucky Whitehead, Derrick Moncrief, and Jamal Morrow all being added. Teams might be starting to realize they can use good help. I think all three will be impactful.

As they say "Keep it Unreal"

How many stamps do you need to collect to get a bomber?
Just one.

Or a lot of these:

The unit cost of a Lancaster was a little under £50,000. The unit cost of a B17 was about US$240,000. The GBP to USD rate was fixed at 1 to 4.03 from 1940 to 1949 which made the Lancaster unit cost about US$190,000.

The spreads for both the U.S. dollar and the pound sterling were narrowed slightly in October 1945 by reducing the selling rate for the U.S. dollar to Can$1.1050 (US$0.9046) and Can$4.45 for the pound. 73. The Canadian government placed controls on the importation of goods deemed to be non-essential.

890,000 25 cent stamps needed for a bomber in 1945.

To get one in blue is special order.

Bizarre development in Edmonton with the promotion of Jarius Jackson to Head Coach in addition to his position as Offensive Coordinator. Not one iota of being qualified. Same guy that called the QB draw for MBT.

Main problem in Edmonton is they have a Board of Directors that has to keep sticking it's nose into the football side where they have no expertise. Rick Lelacheur should have just had another rum and coke instead of trying to be important.

Same group of people are going to give the franchise away to a private owner who will then come to the City to build a new stadium for him or her.

Chris Jones did not kick the ball out of bounds. They lost 3 games on a last play field goal. Jones has been nothing but good for the CFL with the number of players he has brought to the league. Few if any work harder at scouting.
