one of the best things the league could do is to get rid of the separate divisions.
it's a 9 team league. have one division where the top 6 get to have playoffs.
In the Edmonton sun, Gerry Moddejonge also asks if Reilly should really be playing this weekend.
Theres no way that the crossover team should have to be BETTER than the East team.
West teams are of course penalized with this transaction. Its one more in a forever series of the CFL catering to the remaining east clubs in anyway they can.
You can bet that if the Eastern division was stronger this crossover rule would be changed to team that has better record in head to head matchups wins tie in crossover.
Some of us who are old enough remember when the West clubs in the playoffs would play 2 game total pts or even 2 out of 3 matchups, lol, while the East teams had less playoff games and would head into the Grey Cup(usually played in the East) as the well rested team while Western Clubs were bruised, injured, and battered.
Anyway, we're the west, we're used to getting screwed by the East, why should the CFL be any different?

Crompton listed as starter with Reilly dressed as back and Joseph No 3 on Eskimos depth chart.
Joseph was #3 on the depth chart last game, too. look where that got us.
that means nothing when Kavis is the coach.
I respect the fact Crompton will be the starter. (if it happens)
but I have a sinking feeling he'll only last half the first quarter before Joseph goes in.
Guess we'll find out soon enough.
I was thinking I better find my gloves, which led me to think that with the way Reed coaches he still needs his mittens with a string. Depending on his play calls tomorrow, I might just start referring to Kavis Reed as Mittens.
31-3 and Reilly is still in the game. Glad to see the Eskimos still care about his health. Maybe kavis wants to see him pad his stats in the second half against the Allouettes second half prevent defence.
