Didn't Alberta get the royal shaft last year too?  I faintly recall they did.  No televised PS games.

And was it SSK that got 2 games televised last year?  I remember 1 team did.

For us, this sucks worse than last year, because they are televising the game that's here in WPG.  What I want to see is our away game.  If we have an away in SSK (do teams get 3 PS games??) then we'd have to make the drive to see it.  If it's only 2 PS games then we may have to drive (fly) even farther... or rely on a local forum member to go and report back!  (That means we'll be ok if it's in BC or CGY.)
Never go full Rider!

Is it impossible to schedule so every team sees their away game? Since there's nine teams, maybe make the pre-season schedule three weeks long?

It's just pre-season, but why does it always seem like the CFL is just shotting themselves in the foot over and over?

Riders will be good to watch to see if anyone they brought in will be good including the QBs

Could also be a complete tire fire as they try to filter out talent worth keeping. Hopefully. ;D

Ya, you & PJ are right.  It's going to look like Chris Jones is back in town with how many players SSK will need to eyeball to get a decent AR.

It being the Riders road preseason game, we probably won't even have heard of most of the players, and I wouldn't be surprised if they have a couple players with the same number on the game day roster.

Its not going to be a fun game to scheme against, and with the price of Vanilla right now, not even sure we want to call it that... (just kidding, had to buy Vanilla yesterday, we go through a lot for pancakes, and a 40ml bottle was $9.  And yes, real vanilla, not that artificial crap)

Unabashed positron.  Blue koolaid in my fridge.  I wear my blue sunglasses at night.  Homer, d'oh.

I finally dug it up:

Yup I was right, Alberta was snubbed in 2022, and they are being snubbed again this year.  If I was a EDM or CGY fan I'd be mighty miffed because one year is a fluke, 2 years is deliberate.

And lo and behold I was also right that 2022 had 2 TV SSK games (and 2 OTT).  "Canada's CFL Team" getting preferential treatment??

Hmm, so if us WPGers want to see our PS away game we'll have to get our butts to EDM.
