    Guess we'll see how the CFL compares later today...
    I think that CTV should announce that they will be broadcasting the Grey Cup Game.

    Wow.

    Although, if there's a team that can survive without a QB, it's the Bombers.
    Out of my mind; back in five minutes.

    Wow. Tough for Matt. Hope he has a solid rehab and is throwing strong next year.

    Cue people whining that he isn’t Canadian or that they don’t like country!

    I'm not personally a fan, but that's quite a catch. I'd argue a better catch than the Super Bowl's in terms of relevance in music today.

    Good point about Streveler. He looks like a RB carrying the ball. Wonder if he gets orders to hit the deck now rather than fight for yardage. Might be interesting tonight with Hammy in Winnipeg, cheapshot artist Simoni Lawrence might be headhunting again.

    Re: Around the CFL - 2019

    So Bo Levi Mitchell came back to the CFL because Minnesota wanted him to be a back-up & he wanted to be the starter.

    Why is that such a big deal?

    Personally, I think he’s crazy for not taking the money for a few years - he can always come back to the CFL - but to each their own. Kirk Cousins has a fully guaranteed contract, $84 millions worth! He had to know when he tried out that that alone essentially pre-determined where he would be on the depth chart.

    Re: Around the CFL - 2019

    Really? He wanted to just walk in and take starter's job on Day 1? Hadn't heard that.

    If I'd been him, I'd have given it a shot too. Make the money, showcase what you've got. Earn the starter's spot. If it doesn't work out, as you say, the CFL will welcome him back.
    Out of my mind; back in five minutes.

    Who wants to make his money while he's still healthy and young enough.

    Don't blame the guy at all. The CFL pays peanuts.

    But then why didn’t he take the back up job in Minnesota? It would have paid more than his $700k or whatever, no?

    ^Because he's a dummy who doesn't realize the starter is an injury away from an opportunity?

    In other news, Jim Popp was fired today by the Argos.

    How did Popp last as long as he did is the question.
    Well, gentlemen, by all means, I think we ought to have an introspective moment of silence for poor old Tin-Tin.

    Popp did cut Poop earlier on though, so he apparently isn't a fan of Poop.

    Was thinking something was up with Popp's future when reading the 3DownNation article on Sept. 27th that Pinball was asked by the Argo president to assist Chamblin & Popp. Still can't believe Popp released Chris Van Zeyl before the start of the season. All star Cdn O linemen are a precious commodity. An hour later Van Zeyl is in Hamilton solidifying an already good Oline.

    I don;t think the pinball to gm will do much, other than just be a big name from the past to be honest.
