Sure, they're batting .200 at just over the halfway point of the season, but if they can run at .875 for the remainder they might still make the playoffs.
What a joke.
Applause and kudos to Blob for.....

[/quote].....couldn't agree more. In the CFL you can run a hail mary from the gun when scrimmage is on the defense's 10 yard line. Although one has to say that the CFL does provide the added challenge of the uprights by situating them IN the end zone.
And btw, in the CFL, with 2 minutes left in the game and a touchdown the difference the winning team can, if they have the ball, still run off nearly a 1:30. The 20 second clock in the CFL is started by the officials, the game clock can sometimes be running while the play clock sits idle for as much as 10 seconds or so while players shuffle and sub in and out etc. There is no real consistency there, it's an arbitrarial thing decided by the ref in question. At least in the NFL you know that the play clock is ticking, barring occurences which warrant that it be stopped (ie. a time-out). And why shouldn't it. Way more often than not, the team up by a touchdown in the dying minutes has earned the right to be where they are. I hate how in the CFL a team can play shitty for 3 quarters and then storm back in the last frame to take a game with a few lucky plays, or worse still, a team can win a game by MISSING a field goal attempt or by punting the ball through the end zone. WTF is that??? Miss on a scoring attempt or be forced into a 2 and punt situation and you can still earn a point? What a joke.

sorry I meant BC place or Telus place or whatever they are calling it. Not having been in-country for 4 years I tend to think of it as new

Ahhh that's the one. Sort of like the cute 14 year old girl in grade 9 who rocked the acid wash jeans but she had a huge white headed zit on her dome. So you run into her almost 30 years later and you pop the goiter on her head and hook her up with a new sweater and some hot pants.

When they started the season with all those losses I was pretty sure it was going to be another year in decline, but the one thing that kept my hopes up was that they lost by such small margins and really seemed unlucky rather than bad. I remember back in the old empire days with Vic Rapp, the lions would play great in July and August but they would falter down the stretch having to go out to play on the frozen fields Prairies in the fall. This year they seem to be getting hot as the stretch run unfolds, bring on Edmonchuck would just love a home playoff game or two!
