If winning isn't everything,why do they keep score


« Reply #30 on: June 10, 2019, 04:21:06 PM »

Calgary
Winnipeg
BC
Edmonton
Saskatchewan

Hamilton
Toronto
Ottawa
Montreal
I kind of see it this way - very hard to project and IMHO it all depends on injuries to key players throughout the year. IMHO it seems that Calgary always finds a way to replace key players faster than the other teams seem to be able to do - therefore I see them finishing on top regardless of the injury situation throughout the year. BC may be the dark horse this year.

Calgary has always done a great job finding replacements, but I think that this year, they struggle a bit more with that. This will also be the first significant roster change and coordinator that Dickenson has had to deal with. It's much easier to coach when your team is elite than when they are being pushed, and I think that the Bombers can push them and nudge them out of P1 in the West. I think BC is comfortable in P3 (not contending for 2nd or 1st, and not really challenged from below). Edmonton and Saskatchewan will battle for the crossover spot. I have seen some Reilly fear in some posters. Nichols' team finished higher than Reilly's team in each of the last two regular seasons, and I believe that Reilly had a better team in Edmonton (certainly in 2017) than he does in BC.

If Hamilton doesn't finish P1 in the East, something will have gone terribly wrong there. I see Toronto as the best of a bad lot in the rest of the East, and likely hosts a playoff game with a record that will be worse than P5 in the West. They will win the derby between them, Montreal and Ottawa.

If we score more points than them, we will probably win.

1. Winnipeg. Team=complete.
2. Calgary. The losses skid them out of first place contention but Calgary gon' Calgary.
3. BC. Reilly will win them lots of games but they are certainly incomplete.
4. Sask. Defense will win them games but no QB means crossover at best.
5. Edmonton. Rebuild officially begins Nov 2019.

1. Hamilton. By default. Although I expect them to be a legit strong team.
2. Toronto. By default. Despite lack of caring in the GTA, they have some tools to win some games against the other losers in their division.
3. Montreal. Just a fun guess and very bold prediction that they finish second last rather than dead last.
4. Ottawa. Someone said "pay the piper for losing so many players", and I'll add, "pay the piper for getting 3 cup appearances and one championship after a grand total of 5 seasons in existence". Time to LOSE.

The east has been weak for a while but man it is seriously weak this year. You can interchange any of the bottom 3 teams as all will be sub 500 clubs and free spots on the bingo cards of all other cfl teams!!

I'll change my order slightly from before, but only in the E:

W
WPG
CGY
EDM
BC
SSK

E
HAM
TOR
OTT - picking Dom is a bad decision
MTL - morale problems can't be overcome by just a few star players; continued back office troubles and lack of fans kill morale even more; the birds are circling Molson to pick at the carcass

Well a month ago I picked the Bombers and the Cats to meet in Calgary come November....so I'll start there again:

WEST                                   EAST

1) Bombers.                          1) Cats
2) Stamps.                            2) Argos
3) Lions.                               3) RedBlacks
4) Esks.                                4) ALS
5) Riders


The Esks could be a playoff team pending Harris performance as he has tools

So it seems like the general consensus that Ottawa and Montreal are not making the playoffs.... the 3rd team out is still up in the air  Cheesy Wink
