    Other teams pull dynamic return guys out of their asses. The Eskimos have been looking for a guy for 10 years and can't find anyone.

    Yeah... agree. She's very talented but doesn't have that crap attitude that a lot of younger performers have.

    She has a beautiful voice. Did a really good job. Only critique — the drumline one (can’t remember song title) should have been either first or last.

    Never heard of her, and not in her demographic to say the least. But I enjoyed it too
    Out of my mind; back in five minutes.

    Alessia Cara (from Brampton) was just horrible at halftime. Why did the organizers not invite Tegan & Sara who were born and raised in Calgary?

    Complaining about the slippery surface when you could have played in daylight and above zero temperatures!

    At beginning of show, aerial view showed Clarke next to Commonwealth.
    Kinda a huge difference.
    Went to Clarke with my Dad. Seemed big when I was kid.

    Why is the field so slippery?
    Just asking.
    Freezing doesn’t have to mean slippery does it.
    Maybe the Redblacks ought get out the construction staple guns.

    Well yeah, I suppose. But their music is listenable and the fact that I hate the Stampeders doesn't prevent me from taking Stamps in Fantasy when I think it's smart.



    Besides, one now lives in Vancouver and the other in Montrιal.

    1. Tegan and Sara are mid-sabbatical.
    2. Alessia Cara is more current from the perspective of mainstream commercial success.
    3. As much as the CFL talks ‘diversity is strength’ and ‘you can play’ .... they prefer not to have that overshadow the game itself. Judging by a lot of the talk I heard out & about the last few days.... “they not ready” ... it’s what happens when the average fan age is over 50. No diss, just truth.

    Seems that the organizers never bothered to tarp or heat the field these last three weeks.They were too busy making sure the concession stands were fully stocked with beer I guess....

    If true, isn’t that irresponsible?

    Tarping and heating doesn't work, you have to remove the tarp and the moisture just freezes anyway.

    If you saw Tegan and Sara and the opening ceremonies of the Women's World Cup in 2015, you wouldn't be suggesting that. They were not good.

    So is there any way to keep a field from turning to ice?
    Have to say, though, Edmonton nov 25th - could be -20.

    Nice coverage as usual, TSN. Spend the entire time in between plays showing a coordinator in the sidelines instead of a replay of the penalty.

    Tough to make moves on the field. He's been dangerous by trying to hard to make something happen.
