The roller coaster season of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats came to a heartbreaking end as the Ottawa Redblacks snatched a win from the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 35-28 to advance to the Grey Cup.
- Jeremiah Masoli played a great game. Nothing to critique about this man.
- Slowed down Henry Burris in the second half.
- Tiquan Underwood, Luke Tasker, and Andy Fantuz played a great game.
- Great coaching by Kent Austin and his crew.
- The great loyal fans at Tim Hortons Field attending the party and those who went to Ottawa.
- Defence looked soft at many occasions throughout the game.
- Penalties were once again the defining factor of the game.
Medlock = MedClutch.
Justin Medlock put the final nail in the coffin as the Tiger-Cats defeated Toronto Argonauts (aka Choke City North) 25-22, to advance to face Ottawa in the Eastern Division Championship Game.
- Toronto has re-established their status as Choke City North.
- Jeremiah Masoli deserves our respect, especially for critics like myself.
- Great controlled ball game by Kent Austin.
- Defence refrained the Argonauts and potential HOF to 4 points in the fourth quarter. Clutch.
- Team overall struggled for large part of the game. Especially the offense.
- Simoni Lawrence got hurt. Hope he’s okay.
Hamilton Tiger-Cats travel to Ottawa to face against the Redblacks for the Eastern Division Championship next Sunday.
The Tiger-Cats will face the Toronto Argonauts in the Eastern Division semi-finals at Tim Hortons Field next week as they lost the crucial game to the eventual East Division regular season champions — The Ottawa Redblacks — by the final score of 44-28.
- Gutsy performance by Jeremiah Masoli. Played his best real-time game as a ticat. Earned a small dose of my respect after the turbulent past 18 months for him.
- Caused several turnovers by the Defense.
- Great crowd and atmosphere. Had the appropriate feel of a playoff game.
- Played only one good quarter of football. Had to play catchup for entire game.
- Missed opportunities. Refrained themselves on making the right plays.
- Defense was very obsolete for the majority of the game.
- Lot of Redblacks fans in the area where I sat showed lots of lack of class. Not everyone, but a collective bunch of fans.
- Lack of player safety after the game. TD Place is a great place to attend a football game or a special event, but needs more enhanced security detail for next home game (Division Final). Witnessed a few of the ticats players and staff under siege by the small outpour of inadequate Redblacks fans who showed ZERO respect for the opponents.
I would like to thank the great folks of Rideau Days Inn in Ottawa for the great hospitality over the weekend provided to me and to my friends.
The Hamilton Tiger-Cats dropped a great defensive battle today to Ottawa Redblacks 12-6, at Tim Hortons Field.

- Defence did their due diligence today.
- Justin “Med-Clutch” Medlock was good today.
- Simoni Lawerence spoke up against his critics.
- Jeff Mathews was soft today, albeit give Ottawa defence tremendous amount of credit on pressuring the youngster every series today.
- Offensive line didn’t do their due diligence today.
- Simoni Lawerence channeled his inner Steve McMichael.
- Henry Burris should have refrained himself from being irrational.
The Tiger-Cats head to Ottawa to conclude their season at TD Place next Saturday. First place up for grabs.
The Hamilton Tiger-Cats came to a trap game against a desperate BC Lions squad and lost 40-13.
- Great opening drive.

- Couldn’t able to protect Jeff Mathews consistently.
- Offensive Line going down like flies due to injury, most notably Bowden suffering an arm injury
The team returns home against a very good team in Ottawa Redblacks.
A good, but gutsy performance by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. With the win, Hamilton regains control for first overall in the Eastern Division.

- Jeff Mathews gets sacked five times.
- Sloppy finish to the game by the defence.
