    1. Eskimos (13-5)
    2. Lions (12-6)
    3. Riders (8-10)
    4. Stamps (7-11)
    5. Winnipeg (5-13)

    EAST
    1. Montreal (13-5)
    2. Toronto (11-7)
    3. Hamilton (7-11)
    4. Ottawa (5-13)

    Before you insult a man, walk a mile in his shoes. That way, when you insult him, you'll be a mile away, and have his shoes.

    Boy! Is THAT ever lame. What? Pissed off because you now have our reject "Gamble on 3rd and 22 in your own end" coach, and an over-rated overpaid QB who has proven nothing? I'd be pissed too I guess.

    heyy Rejean you snivelling inbred psycho! Remember when you said this?

    Hah, I liken that gem to you getting your ass kicked by someone bigger than you. "It's going to be fun beating you next time! *sniff*" you whine before running away with your tail between your legs.

    I've seen this jealous, bitter, and afraid tool with the rest of the scrub POS's from CalgaryPuck.

    Personally, I'm hoping the Stamps have a mediocre season, just enough to be fourth in the West, but better than 3rd in the East, then get on fire in the playoffs.

    C"mon.. who wouldn't want to see an Edmonton-Calgary Grey Cup?!??!

    Well.. okay.. maybe not the Stamps when we smoke 'em 38-1 (damn, that Rouge ) in the first ever all-Alberta GC..

    I don't think any of the teams will be so bad to not find a way to put a few in the win column...

    Reggie, you must be dreaming. Not a chance. However, I am cheering for the Stamps after a consortium I'm part of bought a controlling interest in the Stampeders a sports stock market thingy on the Net. It's cool to have Esks fans owning the Internet version of a Calgary team. If they do well, we'll get rich. Go, Stamps, go. But ahead of the Esks, won't happen.
