What do I think? Well, as with the announcers for the CFL/TSN games, it's not very hard to tell that this list was drawn up by Toronto sports writers/announcers etc. CJ Gable at 19 and Fantuz at 32; I'm actually surprised they managed to remember that Hamilton is part of the league, never mind that they are one of the original teams that created this league. Oh well, all we can hope for here in Steeltown is that the Cats prove they belong on top this season and that they can take the cup regardless of how lopsided the officiating turns out to be this years. It's a big wonderment in our house at the start of each game, as to which colours the refs will be wearing, especially when it comes to any TO game against anyone. Some may say it's sour grapes, but it's honesty and that's my say so.

Six, count 'em...SIX Eskies! These guys definitely deserve to be in the Top 50! :-)

Good list. SJ Green will be good only if his QB can get him the ball. Cornish will be awesome if his o-line has a fantastic year. The QB's will be good only if they stay injury free.

Mike Reilly at #18, seriously??
Only thing this dude has proven is that he can survive a lot of punishment.

to each their own point of view!! some deserve to be in the top 50, some deserve not to be and some who weren't named should have been!!

it's nice to play 1/2 a season and get picked number 1. It should have gone to Cornish and #2 should be Cox.

No Big Ben Heenan? I'd take him over Jones or Keeping, though they're definitely solid players. Otherwise a pretty accurate list in my opinion.
