Yeah, don't even know how anybody could argue it. The Argos STARTED the game with 10 starters pulled. Not 3, not 5, but 10. To add to this they didn't even have the backup QB Jackson in there. they went to 3rd and then 4th QB lol. THEN soon as they find out Owens has the record they pull him. Really it started to look like whoever was having any modicum of success got the yank pronto.
The cold stark reality of yesterdays game was the Argos playing to have the Hamilton Ticats ridiculously futile D as a playoff opponent. Thats the table they were setting. Please take this W, come back so we can trounce you with out full lineup in the same place.
Instead the Argos might be seeing a much better D, and a club they haven't beaten all year and a club that Ray has done nothing against.
Of course the Argos would rather face the Ticats. They beat em up raw for fun. Ticats on the road are the closest thing to a guaranteed win.
Looks like the Ticats couldn't even bother sticking around. One of the most embarassing contests I've ever witnessed. One club trying hard to lose and the other team not letting it happen.
