Is there a website where I can bet on them losing in the finals?

I think the Als are going to win it all this year. The Offense's the best in the league and they've just beaten the Stamps in Calgary(Which they haven't done last year, beating a West team not in Montreal.)

Plus, the East division's looking very weak. Three new Head Coachs.. Winninpeg's just rebuilding, Toronto well.. Hamilton they're still rebuilding.

18-0 !!

hey dudes i'm driving up from Ottawa for the game on the 23rd, do i have a chance at getting tickets for a reasonable price on game day? scalpers or otherwise? i realize i should probably buy tickets now but i don't know how many i'll need, my friends both here and in Montreal are kind of last-minute about these kind of commitments.

if you can find it in your heart to help not just a Leaf fan but a Ti-cat fan as well it should count for two days' worth of good deeds!

You can expect around $40 each in the endzone's, but they're god-awful seats. Then about $60 in the corners, and anywhere from $80-125 each if you wanna get closer to the 55 yard line.

I've been a season ticket holder for 2 years and have been going to games since 1997, I'm pretty confident my estimations are accurate.

Jim Popp never ceases to amaze me. This year's diamond in the rough rookie appears to be Shea Emry, he's playing huge! And moving Chip Cox up, bit of a surprising move but wow!

Als are looking awfully strong...

hey thanks for the reply. so i'm clear, these are scalper prices?
and how bad are the Z01 seats in the corner? i can only pull up tickets in that area when i choose 'best available' on the website. i wasn't expecting anything this complicated, in Hamilton you just buy a ticket and sit wherever!

The Als look really strong so far - hopefully they keep it up and this isn't one of those usualy "start strong - finish badly" type of seasons.

Als coaching is so good, bringing in all these NFL guys. Coaching circles around the usual buffoons in the CFL.

Cavillo looking great, all these great new pickups, should be another entertaining year of Als football, I just hope they can cap it with a cup this time but even if they can't it's still a pleasure watching them.

Riders will be tough. IMO, the two best defensive units are facing off this week. It'll be very close, and I think it'll come down to the QBs - Calvillo and Durant.

Late season complacency heading into the playoffs, let Trestman remedy this **** already.

'09 start's been damn nice. Saturday should be a gooder.

Yes these are scalper prices. The Als are sold out for the season with the exception of end zone seats. Just how bad... absolutely god awful. You have about 6 inches of leg room in front of you, they are 8-row wooden risers, and right on field level. It's great when the play is on your 5 yard line, but on any third down gambles down the field you'll find yourself watching on the big screen. To me, that's not why you attend a live sporting event.

Spend $40 more each and watch the game from the side of the field, anywhere - just not the endzone. I promise you, I had season tickets in the endzones my first year and despised them.

Just curious, which NFL guys do you speak of?

Well Tressmen for one, and I know the offensive coordinator is a NFL guy, Milanovitch or something. Not sure about the D coordinator.

Ya Trestman was completely new to the CFL, I'll give you that. Milanovich played in the CFL. The DC is Tim Burke, a guy who has been in the CFL for years.
