The Semi Finals

The 2012 CFL playoffs get underway on Sunday, a one game elimination that will send two teams further into November, signalling the off season for those that come up on the short side of the scoreboard.

For the first time since 2008, the Toronto Argonauts will host a playoff game, the Eastern Semi Final, which they hope will be their path towards hosting the Grey Cup in Rogers Centre on November 25th.

The Argos will face the Edmonton Eskimos, crossing over from the West owing to the woeful nature of  football that both Hamilton and Winnipeg provided this year in the east.

The Argos will be looking to keep the Eskimos on a losing skid, giving them the berth in next weeks Eastern Final in Montreal.

Out West, it's the Roughriders making the trek to McMahon Stadium for a Western showdown with the Stampeders. Considering the large volume of flatlanders currently calling Calgary home these days, casual observers may be hard press to know which team is the home team.

The always vocal Rider fans of Calgary will no doubt be joined by a caravan of travellers from Saskatchewan, ready to cheer the Riders on to Vancouver and the Western Final of November18th.

Our previews, reviews and other information on the Eastern Semis can be found below.
