I agree except Sask beats Ottawa and then beats Toronto and Winnipeg beats Edmonton and then beats Calgary

We need an all West Banjo Bowl Grey Cup in Ottawa

The Riders have the best record of any team in the East. No team has successfully crossed over but this year could be the 1st. Riders beat Ottawa this weekend, stay out East and beat TO in front of 3000 faithful Argo fans. Riders, East Conference Champs.

Edmonton is the hottest team right now and the Bumblers are a little nicked up. Think Edmonton is going to take Winnipeg to the woodshed. Calgary hasnít played meaningful football in about a month. Edmonton goes to Calgary and wins a close one over the Stumps. Esks, West Conference Champs.

Itíll be a nightmare for the CFL front office but an all West Grey Cup would be epic. Riders vs Esks. Coach Jones vs his old team. The story writes itself.

I gotta go with my Bombers...but yeah...they always seem to get injuries at key positions at this time of year, especially in years when they've had a good season. (yes..I'm making excuses already)

Hate to say it but...Riders over Red Blacks...not a Rider hater, but I'm not a fan of that coach.

Riders over Stamps for Grey Cup.

Can't see Calgary losing. Yea, they lost the last three games but had nothing to play for and the second stringers were starting some of those games.

Cheeky cheeky 3000 argo faithful.

I did not know riders could count to 13 LOL let alone 3000. I know they dont need to count past 4 to count grey cup wins.

Were you wearing rose coloured glasses? Losing 3 straight with first or second string, is not good for the confidence. Besides over the past 9 or ten years that organization should have way more championships then they have. They tank in the big games. BLM is to full of himself, when balls aren't caught he starts taking it out on the receivers. When he gets pressure he starts to blame the O-line or his running back, or his coach. BLM needs to grow up and share the responsibility.

Typical Rider hater, living in the past. I'm no math whiz but I believe that 2013 was several seasons past 2009....

Could be the last year for the Eskimos they may be changing their name
Green and gold pumpjacks maybe?

Edmonton mayor urges Eskimos to move quickly on name change

I also dont think u figured out that count to 13 was a shot about getting caught with the 13 players on the field and giving David Duval another shot to kick a grey cup winning field goal after he missed in 2009

Actually as a die hard rider fan I knew exactly what you were referring too. That will always go down as one of the most painful moments in rider history. However I donít live in the past and paint a new team of guys with the same
Brush as you are 2009 team. Plus being in the stands at Mosaic in 2013 to see them win it at home was redemption in my books. Either way win or lose I will still wake up tomorrow and go back to my life.

I concur. The first time they played the Eskies had TWENTY guys on the I.R, and 21 players the second time. Now the Eskies are healthy and playing loose, firing on all cylinders. Sasky has a legit shot at going through the east right to the big dance. An Eskie-Rider Grey Cup would be awesome, and a league nightmare. Good time to be an Eskie fan!

ESKIMOS all the way....(I hope...)

And if that name changes I will never watch another CFL game again. If they want to inject politics into sports then suffer the consequences. The name has no derogatory connotation and if I were an Eskimo living way up north I'd be proud that a classy sports organization was named after my people.
