Play calling is brutal. O Line is brutal.

Reilly is on pace for a beyond brutal stat line.

Starting to think Nichols > Reilly

That right there is why you never concede a safety. A rare good call by Reed to kick that ball away.

There is a time for safeties but not in a 3 point game with over a quarter to play. Just about got another fumble recovery. Ball is probably bouncing like it has lead.

Its one of the stories thus far. Also that we have no return game whatsoever.

This game is close solely because of disparity in return games.
The Ticats aren't playing in their own Stadium. Who knows what scheduling issues there were.

Both teams play in the conditions.

Haha, your posts are truly comical. You will complain about ANYTHING. "If the game started when it should". 'Should' meaning? When YOU want the game to start?

I don't know if you know, but there's two teams playing in this game. Two teams being affected by the weather. Or does the weather only negatively impact the Eskimos?

I guess the CFL should banish Friday Night Football and play those games in the morning. I mean, thunderstorms take time to build up and occur later, rather than earlier; best not to take any chances.

That touchdown would have counted for 10 points if it wasn't raining. Stupid rain. That's what happens when the game doesn't start when it should.

I hope Reilly improves when the weather sucks. Cause come the fall he'll have to deal with snow instead of just rain.

Great playcalling on the last drive. Take what the defense gives you, and with Hamilton's defense, that tends to be a lot.

Hamilton's defense is brutal, Reilly is playing alright. Not sure if I'm liking the amount of running he does and taking hits. Would like to see less hits taken from running. Not sure if everyone is watching but when it was raining it was hard and the field didn't drain very well. Burris wasn't put up allot of passing yards either.

Had to shut them down on that drive.

Nobody puts up passing yards in that heavy of rain. It is fairly stupid to do anything besides run in those conditions. Hamilton seems to have no running game at all.

How fitting, a guy we cut just scores a TD for the Cats.

Time to convince the taxpayers to shill out the money for our own SkyDome or BC Place then!

Sweet strike for the Cats keeps this close for the last 6! Hopefully Reillly and Charles can work the clock a bit in this next series.

might as well have gone for it, before the penalty it is only 15 yard difference. But I would have been pissed if they did.

I'm getting it too.

Pretty sure Eskimos fans are just conditioned to feel it by now.

That looked like something the Eskimos would have called.
