There are 13 reasons why the Hamilton Tiger-Cats are having their best season ever. Every single one of them is a win!
Where will they finish?
The question now is where will they finish this season. We already know they will host the East Division Final. The road to the 2019 Grey Cup runs through Hamilton.
Hamilton have a chance to burnish their place in history too. They have the chance to equal the second most wins in a CFL season with 15 if they win their last two games.
Between them those teams appeared in 8 Grey Cup games and won on 5 occasions.
A word of Warning
Nothing is ever decided in the regular season of course. Calgary had 3 straight 15 win seasons in the 90’s but only appeared in one championship game and lost it.
The most wins ever in a CFL season went to Edmonton who rolled to a stunning 16-2 season in 1989.
They then promptly lost 32-21 at home to a 9-9 Saskatchewan team. That led to one of the greatest Grey Cup games ever. Not that Edmonton fans, players and personnel will have enjoyed it. Surely they were sat at home wondering what happened.
Whatever record Hamilton finish with they will host the winner of the Eastern Semi-Final not wanting their season to become a footnote.
Winning the regular season is nice, but championships are what teams are ultimately remembered for.
