CFL Week Ten

The CFL kicks off week number ten by saluting a Titan, as the Hamilton Tiger Cats prepare to retire Number 68, the iconic number of black and gold that earned Angela Mosca adoration in the Hammer and outrage pretty well everywhere else that the Ti Cats would wander into.

The long overdue salute to one of the CFL's greatest characters will provide the backdrop to a Thursday night showdown that puts the TiCats home field unbeaten streak to the test against a Montreal Alouette squad steeped in a bit of controversy with the surprise dismissal of Tom Higgins as head coach.  The Als turn once again to GM Jim Popp to try and position Montreal towards a playoff berth by the time the regular season comes to an end.

Friday night Football brings the Argos into Edmonton, with Toronto currently one of the CFL's hottest squads led by Trevor Harris who since taking the reins from the injured Ricky Ray has had a remarkable time as the Toronto pivot.  For the Eskimos, a bit of redemption for the home town fans will be on the agenda after taking a thumping from the TiCats at Commonwealth last weekend.

The Stampeders will look to make the Blue Bombers season just a little bit worse on Saturday as John Hufnagel looks to keep the Stamps on the winning path as they take to the field at Winnipeg's Investor's Group Field.  The Bombers who despite two weeks of losses, still hold close to a shot at the upper reaches of the CFL West, though it is a task that will be a tad tougher without the injured Drew Willy and facing down the CFL West leading Stamps.

Week Ten wraps up with the Ottawa RedBlacks hosting the winless Saskatchewan Roughriders at TD Bank Place, the RedBlacks who took one on the chin in Toronto last week, aren't about to let the Riders horrid record creep into the back of their minds.  Focused on the fact that many of the Riders losses have been last minute affairs, which could have found a significantly different statistical review ahead had the ball bounced the way of Saskatchewan a few times over the previous nine weeks.

At some point Saskatchewan one imagines will pick up their first win of the year, the RedBlacks will be looking to delay that destiny by at least one more week on Sunday afternoon.
