So the Eskimos are also better than the same two teams, Hamilton and Winnipeg, plus to qualify for the crossover the Eskimos HAD to have more pts than either of those clubs. The Argos could have made in even if tied in the standings if they won the season series.
In the East its a luxury knowing you can be pretty ordinary and still make the playoffs with ease. In the West its a dogfight.
Don't discount either what 8games in the schedule consisting of dates with Winnipeg and Hamilton does for a team.
What easy opponents do we have in the West?
Please reread post 635 and explain why the Esks (if they are indeed a superior team) got their ***** handed to them by the Cats (51-8) and lost to the Bombers? Those should have been easy victories for the clearly superior Eskimos...no?
