    You may have heard by now that there has been a slight imbalance this season between the two divisions in the Canadian Football League.
    From a pure numbers standpoint, the story goes like this:
    West teams have a staggering 24-3 edge in head-to-head action against the East
    The West-leading Stamps have as many wins (nine) as all four East teams combined
    The last-place team in the West has twice as many points as the East Division co-leaders
    The four highest-scoring teams in the CFL and five of the top six play in the West
    The five best defences in the CFL from a statistical perspective are all in the West

    Calgary Stampeders notebook -- Sight of snow lights up quarterback Bryant Moniz
    Monday’s snowfall had many Calgarians cursing.
    Calgary Stampeders third-string rookie quarterback Bryant Moniz wasn’t one of them.
    Born and raised in Hawaii, Moniz reacted to the summer snowstorm with more wonderment than resentment.
    “I’ve seen snow — I’ve been snowboarding before,” Moniz said. “But I’ve never seen snow fall. So that was definitely a new experience.

    Cornish closing fast in CFL rushing title race

    Stamps notes: Players sympathetic for rivals after losses of Lulay, Durant
    For 60 minutes between a series of white lines painted on a plastic carpet, they’re rivals, pitted against one another for high stakes.
    They’re also lodge brothers, susceptible to the same frailties, the same dangers. And in that, develop a unique bond.

    Well here is my take on their response to the apology by Watkins. I am sure many may not agree with me but this is how I feel.

    Well I am a bit dismayed (pissed) at Cornish and BLM for their reaction yesterday after Watkins apologized. First these two players must over the many years they played college ball and now pro have heard everything on the football field. But their reaction after the fact of the apology pisses me off. This whole thing is way over blown and their reaction makes this whole thing a political correct BS. Screw political correctness. The point is football is played on the field the players always yap at each other and always has but to stand in front of mike after an apology and cry like whiney babies pisses me off. Cornish and BLM need to grow some balls! This is football not a university library! I hate political correctness as it is a censorship of freedom of speech. Very very disappointed in these two players.

    Cornish and BLM stick to doing what you do best playing football keep the politics out of the game.
