Well at least I’m still bitter, he knows Calgary wins the Grey Cup if he gets the ball on the 1. Never make that mistake again.
Losing two in a row is not part of the Calgary Stampeders MO. It’s been three years since they’ve lost two games in a row. Coming off their most recent loss against the Edmonton Eskimos on the second install of the Labour Day classic, the Stampeders faced another western division rival in the BC Lions. Although the game looked close on paper, the Lions offence accounted for only nine points.
THe Stampeders took 2/3 sides of the football, and for their part, the Lions had 6 turnovers, and with those two facets of the game you don’t stand a chance to win.
Calgary Stampeders have locked in Henry Burris to a new four-year deal with the team. The 34-year-old pivot led the Stamps to a Grey Cup championship last season and is a two-time Western Division CFL All-Star (2005, 2008). The deal takes him to the ripe age of 38.
The 6’1, 190-pound Burris had 381 completions on 591 attempts for 39 touchdowns in the 2008 campaign en route to being named MVP and his first Grey Cup with the Stamps.

The east v the west come showdown Sunday. Turns out the east media loves a story more than a player. Depiste a couple of stats better than Burris (playing the bulk of games against Hamilton and Toronto) Calvillo was deemed the best in the league. We’ll see come Sunday, when, we hope, that the Stamps will show the idiots out East how pathetic their choice was and the huge discrepency between east and west football play.
Mediocre Saskatchewan Beats Lackluster Stamps
Attention drunk hicks who pass as Roughrider fans, Joseph screwed you not Burris. (Although if I were a drunk hick like you I would jeer Burris too since it apparently caves the entire team.)
In one of those days where Calgary sports fans were in a conundrum, the Calgary Flames were in pre-season action on TV as well, the Stampeders continued their run of first place dominance in the West Division in Saskatchewan.
Playing in Saskatchewan is one of the hardest home turfs to play namely because the of the screaming drunk hicks who scream and chant all game long. Truthfully it’s great to see a pro-sports team so passionate about their only pro team.
Calgary fans get their chance next week in the home-at-home series, but it remains to be seen how many real Stamps fans show up to cheer the home team and heckle the opposition. What the home team hopes is that the coaches call a better game, are more prepared and can make worthwhile adjustments.
Coaching Staff Abandon Run – Blow Crucial Calls
Calgary was dominated, embarrassed, manhandled, whatever word you want to use, in the Battle of Alberta Labour Day Classic in Calgary. Imagine, the most important game of the season and what do you get? A boring outing by the home team. How would Calgary respond? They said all the right things but would they put their talk into action on the field?
Would the real Stamps show up? First series, first play, BANG, bad snap, live ball, Edmonton recovery, endzone trot, touchdown Edmonton. Great, that kind of Stamps. Luckily the offence came back and methodically marched down the field and scored three. All in all the Stamps dominated the first half 10-8 (the only points the offence made were off a single). However, things would turn completely around after the first.
