So, ah, all picks made here are not legally binding, right?

I believe that is correct, it's like practice picks here in the huddle before we make our actual selections.

CFL Pickem Week 20: Crossover Rule Edition

Isn't Tiger-Cats kind of a redundant name?

There used to be two gridiron teams in Hamilton, the Tigers* & the Wildcats When they combined forces, they became the Tiger-Cats. The Wildcats were the Flying Wildcats for 1943-44.

*Hamilton's NHL team were the Tigers as well.
