July 2006 CFL Pool Segment Winner

Monday, July 31st, 2006 by Jon

We have kept secret until now our intentions to offer prizes to the Overtime Central CFL Pool Segment winners starting with the month of July.

Our first winner is bigmc returns, coached by Grant McKinnon, who finished with a July best of 91 points. His total, out of a possible 230 points, came close to breaking the magical 40% barrier, coming in with a 39.5% batting percentage.

Grant wins his choice of either a $5 gift certificate at Cineplex Odeon/Galaxy Theatres or a $2 credit on his account. Grant has until August 7 to email Overtime Central regarding his choice in order to collect his prize.

Players should note that their account balances are now due.

CFL Pool Preview Report – Week 7

Thursday, July 27th, 2006 by Jon

After a crazy Week 6 in the CFL, we only managed a two and two record. We were on the edge of our seats as it looked like Hamilton might send their game into overtime, potentially spoiling our pick. Later we were jumping for joy when Milt Stegall scored to win the game for Winnipeg, preserving that pick. After a misread (which we felt was coming when B.C. changed starting RB’s) on the Calgary-B.C. game, the last minute action returned on Saturday but Saskatchewan failed to complete the comeback on Toronto.

Our Record Last Week: 2-2
Our Record Overall: 9-13

World Anger Increases After CFL Game

Sunday, July 23rd, 2006 by Jon

There is too much anger and hate in the world today. From the political differences in the Western world to the Middle East, we all could use some more peace, love and understanding. Unfortunately, world anger increased after the events of the Toronto-Saskatchewan game July 22.

OC Jottings

No jottings in the last 7 days. Here is a random jotting.

    Expect CFL TV Deal Before Christmas → It will be interesting to see how this plays out with games either being sold off or kept. If I was the CFL, I would be looking for a contract whose value increased as more teams were added to reduce the dillution owners are worried about. Not an increase by another team’s share, but another $1 million a year perhaps. Expanding anywhere in the country would certainly increase viewership, so some benefit should come to the CFL before the next negotiation. Otherwise I can see the CFL stagnating on eight teams over franchise fees and reduced shares before they realize to grow the business they need to get into other regions of the country. #
