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.

    Dickenson Wants CFL Contracts Guaranteed → Guaranteed contracts are considered harmful to sports leagues. Real life says employers should be able to let you go at any time based on performance (if someone younger, better, cheaper comes along, I’m out of a job too). If you can still play, you can find work with another team. If you can’t, it will be time to start the second part of your life. A guaranteed contract that forces a team to pay you whether you are performing or not only encourages mediocrity, something that should be eliminated from all aspects of our society. A player has no right to guarantee his employment in a certain city because he likes it there. Sports is performance driven, get used to it. #
