CFL Week Eleven

What's considered the CFL's real season launches with the Labour Day Battles, with some of the leagues most fierce rivalries set to take to the field over the final weekend of our now fading summer.

And while not a rivalry like the rest of the week end will provide for, the week eleven schedule opens in Montreal where the Alouettes will be looking to keep on their newly found winning ways. Heading into Montreal finds  the BC Lions hoping to reverse some of their losing skid of the last two weeks.

CFL fans get a two day break over Labour Day before the heart of the rivalry games get underway, with the Bombers and Riders taking to the field on Sunday at Mosaic Field.  Saskatchewan will find an interested home audience this weekend, anxious to see if the dismissals of Brendan Taman and Corey Chamblin have an immediate affect on the fortunes of the home side.

For new GM Jeremy O'Day and the newly promoted field boss in Bob Dyce, the task of rebuilding the team is one thing, but showing progress for the always engaged RiderNation means that you have tens of thousands of bosses watching over your shoulder.

Winnipeg heads into that hornet's nest looking to keep their playoff ambitions alive in the CFL West, a new addition at QB in Matt Nichols finally delivers some potential permanence for the position for now, buying the Bombers some time to put together a longer range plan.

Monday provides for the double dose of rivalry, the Argos are off to the Hammer, where never a warm reception is found and the Double Blue take on a Hamilton team smarting from last week's loss to Montreal, focus no doubt won't be a problem for the Black and Yellow.

The weekend wraps up in Calgary where the battle of North and South Alberta will play out, the high flying Eskimos will be looking to knock the Stamps off the CFL's top spot, a win not only pushes the Esks into a first place tie, but will also provide for some momentum heading towards the back end of the CFL season.
