All Sports But Hockey / 105th Grey Cup Game November 26, 2017
« on: November 20, 2017, 05:36:30 AM »
The 105th Grey Cup game is the CFL's championship showcase, which will be between... 
         
         vs                           


Calgary Stampeders         Toronto Argonauts     

The last time these two teams met was in 2012, in Toronto at the Rogers Centre (formerly Skydome), in that year's 100th Anniversary of the Grey Cup championship, with the Argos firmly winning that one.

Quarterbacks Ricky Ray of the Argonauts, and Kevin Glenn of the then Calgary Stampeders, (now a Saskatchewan Roughrider), were part of the matchup from that time.

The Argos fended off the Saskatchewan Roughriders in Toronto at BMO Field, Sunday Nov. 19th in the Eastern Final, in a last-minute victory appropriately led by Ray.  Final score was 25-21 in favour of Toronto.

Meantime, the Calgary Stampeders outsmarted the Edmonton Eskimos at Calgary's McMahon Stadium, Sunday Nov. 19th in the Western Final, in a 35-28 win.

105th Grey Cup Game  Sunday November 26th, 2017 hosted in Ottawa at TD Place. Kickoff at 6:30pm ET. 

Halftime show to feature Canadian songstress Shania Twain:

Quote
“It’s an absolute honour to return to the Grey Cup stage in the nation’s capital during Canada’s 150th birthday,” said Twain. “I’m thrilled to be coming home and being a part of the country’s biggest annual party.”

Quote
“Shania is a massive Canadian icon and a global superstar, so we are so excited that she will help us cap off such a significant year for our country at the 105thGrey Cup in Ottawa,” added Randy Ambrosie, CFL Commissioner. “This promises to be a fantastic event and a special performance for our fans and viewers across Canada and all around the world. I can’t wait to get the party started at my first Grey Cup as Commissioner.”

Welcome everyone!


The TMLfans Pick'em Challenge returns for a new & fun season! :) :)


Note:  For those unfamiliar with this game, here are the rules: 
http://www.tmlfans.ca/community/index.php?topic=195.msg4369#msg4369

SAMPLE ONLY
This game is pretty basic and easy to understand, you get a list of 6 games that are happening on the weekend (Sat-Sun, Fri games are thrown in sometimes too). You then select which teams you think will win and assign a point value to each team, 6 points to the team you are most confident will win, 5 points to the next team you are more confident and so on, you can only use each point value once (6,5,4,3,2,1) here is an example:

Leafs 6 - Sept 24th - Leafs @ Sabres 19:00 EST
Sens 1 - Sept 24th - Sens @ Habs 19:00 EST
Panthers 4 - Sept 24th - Lightning @ Panthers - 19:30 EST
Oilers 5 - Sept 24th - Flames @ Oilers - 20:00 EST
Jets 3 - Sept 24th - Jets @ Predators -  20:30 EST
Ducks 2 - Sept 24th - Ducks @ Canucks - 22:00 EST

Picks are due before the earliest game starts, so in this example you have to pick before the Leafs/Sabres and Sens/Habs game. No changing of picks once the earliest game has started. Any poster submitting their picks after the earliest game starts, won't have their picks tallied for that week and any poster modifying their submission after the earliest game starts, will have all their picks for that week not count.


                                  ---------

Are we now all set for the Challenge? 

Deadline 7PM Saturday.  All times Eastern.

Good luck to all!

Sat.Oct.7th

NYRangers @ Toronto     - 7PM
Nashville @ Pittsburgh     -7PM
Montreal @ Washington   -7PM
Dallas @ St.Louis             -8PM
Philadelphia @ Anaheim   -10PM
Los Angeles @ San Jose   -10PM
