  1. Confidence grows. Good questions btw Drew.

  2. I was surprised and impressed with the play of Erlington. But Winnipeg’s inept offence played a large role.

    Thanks for this.

    This ticat win made the weekend even better!

  4. Bomber fans should be cool. If the game had been five quarters Strevaler would have found a way. Very impressed.

    • I don’t think making the game longer would have helped the bombers. They were outmatched. That little run the Bombers had at the end was a product of the leading team protecting against BIG plays and laying off the shorter, time consuming plays. They didn’t have any real pressure on the Cats in the second half.

  5. Everybody forgets Masoli had an outstanding 4 year college career in PAC 10 and SEC. Rose bowl loss against Ohio State. Heisman candidate. He was never an NFL prospect though because he is 5’10 and had several guilty pleas in Oregon. He and Manziel are clones.

  6. In the coach video The obvious voice of Drew asked if coach June does not consider nationality in choices. Why even ask? Coaches have to win or get fired. They could care less if a player us from mars if he can score touchdowns. These two RB,s are further proof the ratio is unnecessary and damaging to the CFL. It damages fan confidence that the best players available are on the field. A no ratio league will look like a the NHL for Americans does with about 25% of slots all on merit. Canadians will teain in NCAA and Cana colleges will upgrade prog just like NCAA hockey did.

    • Why ask? Because everyone was so high on Green, who played well last year, but instead of replacing him with an unknown American signee (or a known one, such as the still-not-quite-ready White) the Cats have opted to go with their Canadian draft picks. If the two nationals can do the job instead, it’s a nice bonus.

      I don’t see how this in any way makes the ratio unnecessary. Nor that a “no ratio league” would look like the NHL. Without the Cancon rules, I think you’d see some teams starting 7-8 Canadian players, and others only 2-3 (or less!). This isn’t the same as hockey, where Canada’s programs and player development system are still the world’s standard, despite all the good players that come from the US, Europe, and Russia.

    Coach Jones said he almost put Manziel in there because Masoli’s ribs got dinged. They’re just sore he said. We could see Manziel earlier then later with Masoli still the starter.

  8. Coach Jones said, “I screwed up a call…” WOW that is so refreshing to see a HC who has humility and takes responsibility for his calls…
