Sights, Sounds and Social: Week 7

Here is how Week 7 played out on social media around the Canadian Football League.

Calgary 17, Ottawa 16

The Stamps walked off the REDBLACKS thanks to a Rene Paredes field goal as time expired, in what proved to be a memorable night for Calgary’s kicker.

Stamps DB Robertson Daniel also drew some eyes from south of the border for his unique facepaint for the Thursday nighter.

Edmonton 26, Toronto 0

There was a special guest on-hand in Edmonton for #TNF, as UFC President Dana White was in the house for the Esks’ dominant win over the Argos.

The Esks also rolled out new family-friendly ticket pricing (Under-17s free!) on Thursday, with great results.

Hamilton 23, Winnipeg 15

The Ticats’ win against previously-undefeated Winnipeg was largely overshadowed by the season-ending ACL injury suffered by QB Jeremiah Masoli.

Players also took to the Instagram comments section following the newsbreak.

Saskatchewan 45, BC 18

Riderville was out in force on the Pacific coast for Week 7’s finale on Saturday, and the green faithful were rewarded with a strong 27-point win.

It was Family Day in BC, so QB Mike Reilly and his teammates ran out of the tunnel pre-game with some special guests.


Once the game kicked off, though, it was virtually all Riders — and they had some vocal travelling support to back them.

Saturday’s game also featured a nice video montage at BC Place for former Lions Solomon Elimimian and Manny Arceneaux.
