Completely agree.

Now what we really want to know is how many wins are the Esks going to end up with this year?

I'm sure Winnipeg can't help but be better this year, and we only play the Redblacks twice. Maybe a surprise win somewhere. Add a garbage time season finale win against a resting playoff-bound team.

I haven't forgotten how thoroughly dominated we were in nearly every game, before we'd scrape a few TDs against the ol' Prevent Nothing defense.

Any other CFL team, I'd buy a pair of season tickets, knowing I'd only make 5-6 games, and call it money well spent. The Esks...just an absolutely classless, clueless organization.
