It still irritates me that the Blue Bombers are in the West Division.
But that really has nothing to do with the topic at hand.
We’re here to discuss what should be a great race in the CFL’s West Division this year. The Division’s bottom three teams last year, i.e. Winnipeg, B.C. and Saskatchewan, have all made moves that *should* make them more competitive, setting the stage for what could be an excellent playoff spot battle after Labour Day.
For many years, the CFL’s East Division was often referred to as the LEAST Division – especially by yours truly.
But the 2015 season proved to be a season where the word ‘parity’ was tossed around a lot. And for good reason. Three of the East Division’s four teams finished with better records than three of the West Division’s five teams. The REDBLACKS had 12 wins, while the Argos and Ti-Cats had 10 wins a piece. In comparison, only Edmonton and Calgary managed to amass more than 10 wins in 2015.
Weird. VERY weird.
