The CFL Week That Was...

Another week, another wacky batch of results.

Toronto 0 AT Montreal 25: Quality entertainment again? Not! The Argos are the CFL's representative in the league's biggest market. Let's hope they soon find something that resembles a consistent, professional football club. Montreal on the other hand, is absolutely the CFL's best right now. This result was no surprise. The shutout was.

Saskatchewan 20 AT B.C. 35: Last week, I felt there was just no way the Lions would lose a third straight game at B.C. Place Stadium. A Wally Buono led football club just could not lose five of its first six games. The bumbling, injury-prone Riders were just the tonic. And it also says here that the most bizarre touchdown scored in recent CFL memory is likely to catapult the Lions into the Western Division's parity-filled battle. Of course, making things even worse, the CFL reported today that the on-field officials made an error on the dubious play that led to the momentum changing TD for the Lions. Oh well, a loss is a loss. The Riders weren't good enough anyway.

Edmonton 21 AT Hamilton 28: It is always good for the CFL when the TiCats are winning games. They are the small town heroes in a blue collar market that can create a true community rallying cry. Played for the most part in driving rain, this was the most entertaining game of the week, a notion varified by an online poll at the CFL website. Hamilton looks very good. Edmonton does too.

Winnipeg 23 AT Calgary 31: The Stampeders made one offensive play in the second half and it was good enough to propel them to the win. Winnipeg delivered a barrage along the ground in the second half, but couldn't punch the ball across the goal line when they had to. A better game than the matchup on paper initially presented.

Last Week: 3-1. Season: 12-12.
