    This Week In The CFL~Division Finals

    Dome sweet Dome. After watching the West Division Semi-Final being played outdoors, I expect many of the players and fans will be thankful that the Division Finals will resemble indoor track meets instead of highschool games. I for one, enjoyed the panic that ensued in that emotional stalemate...

    This Week in the CFL #20 of 20 !!!

    This is like Bob and Doug's version of the 8 days of Christmas where it was too hard to sing the last four they just chugged beer. Sorry for my truancy....when the weather starts changing on the prairie, my schedule becomes more erratic than the Argonauts performance in sub zero...

    Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

    As I type ..... It's a balmy but dry -1 here in old pile o bones with an east wind at 20 k's gusting to 30. When we get an east wind, it usually means precipitation. The forcast is for a high of +1 on Sunday with a similar wind strength and direction....and 1-3 cm of the white stuff overnight...

    C...onfounded Football League

    Strap on your seatbelts. The 2004 CFL season has taken more twists, turns and spills than a Jamaican bobsled run. I actually had enough time to watch most of the Hamilton / Winnipeg game tonight and I am almost speechless. Sorry for my absence lately, but life and work are totally insane and...

    Riderville weather & props

    21C @ 2:15 pm Wind is 35 gusting to 44 from NW. The kicking games and punting will be affected if the wind keeps up until game time and it usually does here. Last game Sask. kicker Paul McCallum had his shoulder dislocated after an errant field goal attempt. He was creamed by Schmoe reciever...

    Labo(u)r Day is music to my ears. Hi neighbors! Although it signals an end to the "Crazy, Hazy, Lazy Days of Summer" ... the labour day weekend ushers in my favorite time of year. The sounds of children back frolicking in the school grounds, geese honking overhead and rowdy football fans are...

    This Week in the CFL #11 of 20

    1st Half Performance Report Card time: Calgary 2-7: (F) They aren't called F-Troop for nothing. Only player aquisitions like John Grace, Tommy Jones and Nick Lewis have prevented them from absorbing an F-. Matt Dunnigan has worked his tail off, but cannot do it all by himself. His playcalling...

    This Week in the CFL #10 of 20 ... condensed version.

    The CFL should change it's name to the "Confounded" Football League. Just as our perception had realigned in concordance with the week eight standings ... Week #9 threw a few more screws into the works, leaving us scratching our heads in amazement. On any football team, especially in this...

    This Week in the CFL #9 of 20

    As the solitary figure trudged across the embattled Astroturf of McMahon Stadium towards the visitors dressing room, anyone mindful of the pre-game circumstances could certainly envision "The Final Act"... "Et Tu Brute?" Some of Dave Ritchie's team played valiantly, almost to the point of...

    This Week in the CFL #8 of 20

    As Autumn aproaches, two constants occur in the CFL. The running aspect of the game tends to proliferate and so does the attendance. Several of the teams put their next best foot forward and gave themselves a better chance at winning by running a more balanced offense. BC, Edmonton, Saskatchewan...

    This week in the CFL #7 of 20

    Week #6 is packed in ice. Ouch! It was not a good week to be a reciever. It was not a good week to be a home team either as three of four road teams went home with "W". This week ... I was impressed by a gutsy performance by 40 yr. young Argo QB Damon Allen (Cal State Fullerton), amazed at the...
