Canadian Football League Week # 19 Picks


Als Vs Bombers

This could be a preview of the East Division Semi-Final. The Bombers have the Als
number this year. The weather is not expected to nice. No Tom Canada, Juran Bolden
and Charles Roberts will make difficult for the Blue. Still this game means everything
to them and nothing to the Als.

Bombers by 15

Argos Vs. Riders

The Riders will probably rest a few players and this could be the biggest game of
the year for the Argos if the Bombers win friday. Kent Austin though would love
some revenge by preventing the Argos from finishing first.

Riders by 4

Eskimos Vs Ti-Cats

In game that means nothing in the standings, could still be interesting with guys
fighting for jobs for next season.

Ti-Cats by 6

Stamps Vs. Lions

Another game with not much on the line. The Stamps need a win more then the Lions
do at this point heading into the playoffs.
Stamps by 3

Last Week 2-2 Over-All 49-19

Finalists announced for Canadian Football League Awards

For the first time in more than 30 years, a Saskatchewan Roughriders quarterback is a finalist for the Canadian Football League's Most Outstanding Player award.
'Riders quarterback Kerry Joseph was named today the West Division nominee for the league's top award, while Winnipeg pivot Kevin Glenn was the East nominee, as the league announced its finalists for the 2007 Rogers CFL player awards,
Heading into the final weekend of regular-season action, Glenn tops all quarterbacks with 4,918 yards passing, including 25 touchdown passes and 12 interceptions. Joseph, who led Saskatchewan to its first home playoff game since 1988, is third in passing with 3,910 yards, 24 majors and just eight interceptions.

The last Saskatchewan quarterback to be a finalist for the league's MVP was 1976 when Ron Lancaster won the honour.
The voting panel is comprised of members of the Football Reporters of Canada representing the eight CFL cities, and the league's head coaches.
Joseph's nominee spoiled a sweep by the B.C. Lions, who picked up all the West nominees in the other five award categories.
Lions slotback Jason Clermont is up for the top Canadian award, while Winnipeg defensive end Doug Brown got the nod in the East Division.
Lions defensive end Cameron Wake is up against Toronto defensive end Jonathan Brown for top defensive player honours, while B.C.'s Rob Murphy and Winnipeg's Dan Goodspeed will vie for the offensive lineman award.
Wake, who led the CFL with 16 quarterback sacks, is also the best in the west for the top rookie honour. He'll be up against Hamilton kicker/punter Nick Setta from the East.
B.C. running back Ian Smart, who led the league in punt return and kickoff return yardage, is up for the special teams player award against Toronto running back Dominique Dorsey.
The winners will be announced on Nov. 22 in Toronto during Grey Cup week

Former Canadian Football League player indicted on rape charges

A former NFL running back was indicted yesterday on multiple rape charges involving a 12-year-old girl.
John L. Harvey, 38, of 6 Dunlap Court in the village was accused of having sex multiple times with the girl, who was not related to him.
A grand jury yesterday indicted Harvey on six counts of first-degree rape and one count each of first-degree criminal sexual act and second-degree sexual abuse. He also was charged with a misdemeanor count of endangering the welfare of a child.
The indictment came on the day Harvey, who played three years of professional football, was set to appear in Justice Court for a preliminary felony hearing.
Such hearings are held prior to an indictment to determine whether the prosecution has enough evidence for a judge to set bail for a suspect.
The indictment cancelled the hearing and moved Harvey's case to County Court. He has not entered a plea to the charges.
He was being held in the county jail in New City on $25,000 bail.
Orangetown police arrested Harvey last week on a warrant issued in Spring Valley. He was arrested on Franklin Avenue in Nyack.
Harvey has friends and relatives living in Nyack from his days of playing football for Spring Valley High School. Harvey graduated from high school with all-Rockland and all-state honors as a running back. At the time, he was Rockland County's career rushing leader with 3,118 yards, from 1982 to 1984.
Harvey went on to play college football with the University of Texas-El Paso and was drafted by the NFL's Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
After one season with the Bucs in 1990, he signed a two-year contract in February 1992 to play football for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the Canadian Football League.
