Canadian Football League Week # 7 Picks


Argos Vs Ti-Cats

The battle of Ontario. Early in the season the Cats upset the Argos at Rogers Centre.
Not much has changed since that meeting. Both teams are hit and miss.
Could be a close one.

Ti-Cats by 6

Stamps Vs Riders

Okay so Matt D joins the Rider Injury list. They seem to find replacements so far.
But finally it comes to an end.

Stamps by 5

Als Vs Bombers

The Bombers will be with out Edwards and possibly Stegall again. The home field
should help.

Bombers by 4

Eskimos Vs Lions

Jason Tucker was a real inspiration for the Eskimos last week. This time the Lions
are at home and Wally does not lose back to back games to the same team.

Lions by 16

Last Week 1-3 Over-All 12-12

Canadian Football League States Officials Made Error

The Canadian Football League announced today that it has conducted a supplementary review of a player ejection made during last night's game between the Calgary Stampeders and the Saskatchewan Roughriders in Calgary.

During the game, Calgary linebacker JoJuan Armour was ejected from the game for making contact with a CFL official during the course of play. Upon review of video footage, it was determined that the contact between Mr. Armour and the official directly resulted from prior contact between Mr. Armour and a Saskatchewan Roughrider player. The ejection of the player was unwarranted.

CFL Director of Officiating Tom Higgins stated, "We sincerely regret that this officiating error was made and cost Mr. Armour the opportunity to play during last night's game. Our officials are professionals and do a tremendous job, but when a call is missed we take it very seriously and have an internal review system to deal with it appropriately".

Mr. Armour will be eligible to play in this week's rematch between Calgary and Saskatchewan in Regina on Thursday.
