CFL Pick 'Em, Week 11: Labour Day is gone and so is half the CFL season. Nothing has been settled, neither in the CFL standings nor in ours, so you're strongly encouraged to make your picks inside.

Big road wins on Labour Day: Toronto seals it with a last-minute defensive stand, while Edmonton goes the more traditional blowout route. Saskatchewan and Montreal keep on winning the games they're supposed to.

Finally, some pulling away in the standings. tommy nails the Montreal win and hits the Rider spread for a fat six-point week. apoch is hot on his tail with five points, but they've both managed to put the tiniest bit of breathing room between them and the pack.

It's all downhill after Labour Day.


Calgary @ Edmonton (Friday, September 5)
Aye, them Stamps were embarrassed by a very confident-looking Eskimos squad last week. Revenge will be a tough task, though, especially going into Edmonton.

B.C. @ Hamilton (Saturday, September 6)
B.C. hasn't won in almost a month, so a date with Hamilton should be just what they need.

Toronto @ Montreal (Sunday, September 7)
Toronto finally proved it could beat Hamilton. Montreal, in Montreal, in September, is slightly different. And by "different", I mean "much more difficult".

Saskatchewan @ Winnipeg (Sunday, September 7)
Everyone who was forecasting a slump for Saskatchewan obviously didn't see the home-and-home with Winnipeg on the schedule.

Good luck!

A few months ago I had the pleasure of working with a Lao-Canadian. Edmonton by 12. She was born in Vientiane but moved to Montreal when she was two years old. BC by 15. So she speaks French with a strong Quebecois accent. Montreal by 21. Now she's back in Laos, she just loves winding up French tourists. Saskatchewan by 9. Who can't figure her out.

In honor of the recently departed* THX, I will base my picks solely on team colors. Me like vs. me not like.

The Calgary logo is cool but I can't do red, so the Packers colors win that one. Edmonton by 7.

Both teams sport big cats, and I dig that, but only one wears the same colors as MIZZOU. Hamilton by 10

Next one is easy for me. The Montreal team colors resemble that NFL team that we almost never hear about. I think they are from the NorthEast. Toronto by 21

In high school, we wore gold. We sucked. Saskatchewan by 10

*by "recently departed", I only mean "from SportsFilter", beyond that I have no idea.

If it's not too late (I've been with my mom who has been hospitalized for the last 2 days so I have had no internet access)

Late post is my fault, guys. But the games start on Friday this week, not Thursday, so we're all cool.

MrFrisby, apoch is sponsoring your fourth place this week.

Oh man. I was hoping that was a clerical error and I really had 62 points.

Who really cares?

Apparently the people in this pool do, and if you don't, then take a flying fuck. Have you even read the guidelines of SportsFilter? We don't criticize other members choices of what is a sport, or what they should enjoy. Perhaps you would be happier on a Chicago Bears fan site. If so, off you go, if not, please pay attention to the guidelines here. Thank you.

Shit. I checked late yesterday, and it wasn't up yet, and I've been at work all friggin' day. On my honor, and all that...

And what, exactly, is your problem? Your performance so far as a member of this community pretty much sucks. If you can't act like a grownup, go to the CBS Sportsline boards. They'll love you.
