From lovely IG Field, 8:30 EST Bit of a brisk wind (under 15kmh), partly cloudy at noon, expected to have 22,500 to 23,800 of the usual suspects in the house. Mitchell a NO-GO as Stamps retain salary cap coin by not lifting his 6 game IR embargo. Bombers an injury mess although O'Smirk always claims there are no injuries, just guys who don't dress. Basically, O'Shea is an inveterate liar & BS'r, near Trumpian levels. On face of it. Arbuckle the less experienced but far more mobile QB than Le Grand Diaper, Mutty Nichols. Nichols is terrified of getting hammered and routinely tosses balls into the ground, the stands or tries to baseball slide for soft sacks. Arbuckle has almost as good a receiver fleet as Nichols but ain't afraid to use them. Nichols seldom gets that extra 1/2 second, allowing his WRs to finish their convoluted routes (NB: All Paul "PLOP" LaPolice routes are convoluted, PLOP's nickname should be Ally Sherman, Jr. Nichols will wear out Andrew Harris to the point of exhaustion. Stamps will crack down on Harris sometime in the second half, if not prior. Thus with two middlin' QBs this sets up as a defensive battle. Therefore, like the Stamps by 4 to 9 pts. Nichols will tell the media one game never matters, go get 'em next week. Same with Smirkmaster O'Shea. Two of the best place-kickers in CFL history. 89% boy Parades vs. 85% Medlock - - - - winds might effect kicks over 42 yds. Lets hope Rod Black is still banned from Thursday football. Holding Black down to 1 game a week was a great decision by TSN tall foreheads.
