Brenda was on with Lawless Monday afternoon and Lawman was asking him about the Rider woes, panic setting in, possible trades, etc. As per the form chart, Brenda was rather humdrum and droll about the riders 4 game losing skid - saying that most CFL teams have periods where they are ineffectual and weak (whether its from injuries, inexperience, poor execution, forced efforts, etc.) Real great comment on the CFL, isn't it? Basically Taman is stating that most CFL teams turn in a flock of 'DOG GAMES" during the year - some of them turn in a handful (4 or 5) while others choke it down in most of their games. Doesn't exactly invoke confidence in the product. Basically, what Taman had the guts to say (Huffer or Lapo won't) is that all you have to do is keep your team viable (near .500) with 3 games left in season (if you win all three then you probably get a home game, if you win two you probably make playoffs, and if you win one or zero, its pretty much lights out at the ballpark) If thats how they do it FINE.... But does Joe Phan have a choice by mailing in his $55 - you get charged full bore whether the game dogs or not. Just the way it is! Perhaps thats why attendance is slipping badly in Calgary, sellouts are no longer guaranteed in Winnipeg, Toronto is treading water and Montreal is showing obvious slippage despite still having a decent squad. O, Edmonton is slipping, too. Regina is still killing it despite a typical CFL dog team. BC is showing significant fan upwards support and rewarding them with decent play. Hamilton is steady as she goes, wait til next year when they play in a college stadium.
