Toronto Arg­onauts de­fen­sive back Matt Black fig­ures it’s only fit­ting the CFL play­offs be­gin on the same day Canada re­mem­bers those who’ve made the ul­ti­mate sac­ri­fice. The Hamil­ton Tiger-Cats will en­ter­tain the B.C. Li­ons in the East Divi­sion semi­fi­nal be­fore the Saskatchewan Roughrid­ers play host to the Win­nipeg Blue Bombers in the West Divi­sion con­test as Canada marks the 100th an­niver­sary of the end of the First World War. The CFL will com­mem­o­rate the day by stop­ping the Hamil­ton-B.C. game at 2 p.m. ET for a mo­ment of si­lence. The league also will pay trib­ute to vet­er­ans dur­ing the pre-game coin toss in both con­tests and play­ers will wear a poppy de­cal on their hel­mets. Black re­ceived the Jake Gau­daur Vet­er­ans’ Tro­phy this sea­son, given an­nu­ally to the CFL player who best demon­strates the at­tributes of Canada’s mil­i­tary per­son­nel.
