MILITARY TOP OF MIND FOR CFL
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.
