CFL semi finals / Grey Cup 2017
« on: November 19, 2017, 01:43:50 PM »

Sk only 3 pts at half time 18-3 Toronto.
Sk comes back in the 4th late in the game to take a lead.
Ricky Ray marches his team with 2 minutes aprox. & gets a TD !!!
Unreal.
3rd down conversions; passes than tread the needle. One near the end zone the TD receiver had 4 Riders very close by.
Another play before that Ray's pass drops over the Rider defender & into the hands of his receiver.
Talk about being cool under pressure. Jim Popp GM Tresman ? head coach have brought a good program players attitude to this TO team.
Matthews of the Maple Leafs was at the game.
Notice there was a lot of roughing penalties & Matthews at the game....something telling me Chris advised the Argos to be rough like the 1970's Flyers.  ;)
Sk had to retaliate to defend themselves & get their mind off the game plan.
It will be Argos vs Stamps or Eskimos in the Grey Cup in Ottawa next Sunday.
What was Dunigan doing standing near the Sk head coach during the game?
Knowing the SK head coach lucky Dunigan was not grabbed & thrown 20 yds into the stands  ;D
Last week SK head coach yelled "get that camera outta my face " during the game.

Great finish ! After dominating the first half, Toronto played conservative and it almost cost them. Riders scored 18 unanswered points in the 4th quarter to take the lead before Ricky Ray's heroics

Not cold but windy.

What?????????????????  The ???????????????? Hel_ ????????????????????
3rd & 4 with little time on the clock & Esks kick a field goal ????????????????
Get the first down & get the TD & get the game tied.
Dunigan says it's "mind boggling"
Other tsn sports guys said the coach " over thought " the situation.
It could not of happened to a better guy ; Jason M.
The guy all year has gone nuts & yelled at his assit coaches.
Now all of the CFL has just witnessed Jason M bone head dunce hat decision.
The Edmonton sports media are going to be on this topic "big time".
Argos vs Stamps
Stamps at the big dance again.
Maybe they will lose by one point.  ;D
Ya just know Chris is telling the Argo defense about goon play ( Flyers 1970s ) to distract the Stamps off the game plan. Hopefully Maple Leafs do not have to play at the same time as the Grey Cup game.
If so Matthews will phone in sick. Disguise & attend the Grey Cup,with Chris's blessings. ;)
Leafs do well without him anyways.
Big time pressure on the Stamps to win. All the pressure is on the Stamps.
Should be a great Grey Cup game.
Wonder why the cheerleaders were so dressed up? ( forgive me Lord ...only a joke. )

Agree with you A-BOATER, have never been a fan of Jason Maas. He's a hothead. Bad bad coaching decision. Calgary will be seeking redemption next week

Just seen Maas being asked about his decision.
He still thinks he was right !  ;D
What is this guy smoking?
A field goal still has them down by 4 pts & need of a TD.
Too little time on the clock.
Edmonton fans must be pissed.
Maas said that he had faith in his team to stop the Stamps & get the ball back.
Where is his faith in the team on 3rd & 4 ?
They were 3rd & 10 & got a 1st down plays earlier. Unbelievable.
Maas just does not think right under pressure.

He's got the off season to think about his decision. He gambled on 3rd and 10 earlier but when the game is on the line, he didn't have the courage. Maybe he should have drank some of A-BOATER's red to give him the courage.

After he gets home & thinks it thru he just may decide to consume a few glasses of red wine.
Look at this website & article:
thecomeback.com
CFL west division final saw TSN appropriately roasting Jason Maas' FG call, the most bizarre late game move...

The reporter really cannot understand the call.
Reminds me when the Seattle Seahawks got to the Super Bowl ( won it the yr prior. )
Seconds left on the clock & on the 1 yd line.
Their fullback was like a tank making big yds on running plays all game long.
Every sports fan including the kitchen sink just knew the RB would get the ball & plow into the end zone & game set & match ,Seattle would be repeat Super Bowl champs.
Snap of the ball & a short pass is thrown & defender ( Bible thumper )steps in front of the receiver & intercepts the ball.
New England wins the Super Bowl.
The head coach got tons & tons of flack & he still defends the call.
Another hard head.  :o

Yep that's the boys !
Imagine Seattle players lost some big $$$ in bonuses in their contract if they would repeat as champs.

Another fact is Kevin Glen had 3 intercepts. Bridge came in finally & the Riders get the lead but lose it on final drive. Glen it seems plays very good during the season but in the meaningful pressure play off games  / Grey Cup he normally than not has a sub par effort.
Kevin Glen reminded me of Kevin Durant QB with Als.  ;D in today's game.
Ex SK Rider. What a bummer Durant had at QB this season.
No wonder. He drops back & stares at the receiver & takes him forever to wind up & throw.
But that time he's pressured & the DBs know who he is throwing to 3-4 seconds before he throws.
Bridge should of gone in sooner & stay in.
Nevertheless Argos vs Stamps is a nice match up.
Just hope it's not a blow out unless it's a blow out runaway for the Argos.
Did you guys hear about the score in a university play off games in Canada. Yesterday a team scored I think 11 TDs  something like 80-3.  :o

University of Western Ontario over Acadia. Too bad my alma mater got beaten by Calgary on a last play 59 yard field goal.
Wow 59 yder. Must of had some help from the wind?
Back in the day Ted Gerela with his side kick style had 48 or so distance & missed wide a lot.
Then Edmonton had what's his name. Straight on kicker. He'd change shoes & tie a string around the front & around the back of his shoe.
Kickers are amazing today. In some cases nice indoor stadiums / artificial field ( no mud or worn out grass / ruts ) must help.
On third & 5 on the last drive by Argos today, they went & made a first down.
On this third down the Argos could of tried a 47 yd field goal  & if made it would of tied up the game.
If that 3rd down play failed possibly the Argos coach would of been called out.
But maybe not because Argos were facing a wind so guess they had to be closer. Maybe a 40 yd attempt.
Wow if one does a web search : Jason Maas FG call
A lot of results appear.
One post by Kent Austin ex Tiger Cat coach states that people should lay off Jason M.
Reason. Esks did not make plays when expected. Drop balls etc..
Nevertheless next posts said two wrongs do not make a right type of idea.
Tons of posts really blasting that decision.
One person posted that Jason has not the temperament to be a head coach & this terrible call should be a career ending head coach position.
