After the game a Ticats fan allegedly spit his beer in one of the Argos players faces. This led to an altercation in the stands, but we don’t want that to take away from the great performance we saw from both teams.
Naturally, this is great news for the CFL. Starting out the year it wasn’t sure if they’d hit the field. Prior to this season they missed their entire 2020 season due to COVID, and they were already having financial issues.
Fast forward to 2021 and for all intents and purposes, it seems like things are going well for the league.
Furthermore, the CFL Western Final was the 2nd highest rated sports event televised Sunday, sitting only behind Hockey Night in Canada.

Again, if I was a league executive, this is exactly what I’d want to see. Additionally, it’s promising to have some strong numbers prior to your biggest game of the season.
With the Eastern and Western Finals we turn our attention to Hamilton, Ontario, Canada where the Tiger-Cats will have a home team advantage over the Blue Bombers. Will it be enough, only time will tell.
The 108th Grey Cup will be televised Dec. 12th in Canada on TSN as usual, but fans in the United States will be able to tune in on ESPN2 or ESPN+.
Who do you think will win this years Grey Cup; the Winnipeg Blue Bombers or the Hamilton Tiger-Cats? Let us know down in the comments below or join the conversation on Discord.
