    I might say stephone jones.

    I still have those great Edmonton sun glossy posters they gave out years back and one of them is Malcolm frank taking a pick 6 to the house in Calgary.

    The one and only labour day game i went to in calgary we beat them 34-0.

    MoD coming back would greatly help them, the OL has held up incredibly well with all the injuries but they desperately need some bodies back.

    My only LD game was when Stamps had 3 TD's and we won. Just saying

    According to Dave Campbell MOD should be back, Kelly and Colquhoun are out.

    Ffs, who then plays at RT in place of Kelly? Does Bond move out there & MOD go back to his normal position at RG?
    And then there’s the question of who plays for Colqhoun at the corner? I suppose that Josh Johnson could move there & Glass takes his position at the HB slot?

    But isn't no Kelly good? With all the complaining people about him and his penalities you'd think people would be happy to have him out.


    The D side scares me. With Colqhoun out. Interested in how they change stuff up.

    Hopefully if O'Donnell slots in for Kelly, they use the extra International starter on defense.

    Will be going with my Dad as we have done since I was a kid in the mid 90s. Have only missed two, once when my grandpa passed away, and once when my daughter was born.

    Seen an awful lot of losing lately, would be nice to get rewarded with a win for once!

    I'd say try and leave as much of the line intact as you can and just swap MOD for Kelly.

    Re: Battle of Alberta - season starts on labour day

    Depth chart is up & only 2 changes—Glass & O’Donnell in & Colquhoun & Lofton out.
    Kelly starting at RT & MOD at LT.
    Johnson starting at corner for Colqhoun who is now on the 6-game IR, you just knew he couldn’t stay healthy for the whole season....

    Looks like Mitchel is listed as the starter for whatever that's worth.

    Bo Weevil doesn't like pressure or being hit. Do it often. 'Course we know the refs will constantly turn a blind eye to any Stampeder infractions...so the game is tougher than it should be

    Quoted for truth...

    To me it was never about what I accomplished on the football field, it was about the way I played the game.

    I thought I heard those wont be available this year. Maybe something to do with the new jersey maker. Or was it the helmets ?

    The Esks' team store sells New Era third jerseys. Probably what the Esks will wear in the rematch as usual.

    Re: Battle of Alberta - season starts on labour day

    Arrived in Calgary today for the game tomorrow. Nervous but optimistic.

    Will be a test of this coaching staff to see if they can out-scheme Calgary's staff.

    While talented, Cgy's secondary is young and inexperienced in places and we have to find elements to exploit. Our offence played well in the last meeting once we started playing more aggressively in the second half, but struggled when we were very conservative early. Need to establish the run, but I am okay with doing that after we've softened them up with stretching the field a bit more first.

    Need a big day from our special teams to ensure we don't lose that phase, and focus, focus, focus when we hit the red zone. We have remained our own biggest enemy but that should be fixable.
    Life is Good.
