TORONTO - Now that the auditions are over, the regular season complete, the Argos are left to wait to see who will provide the opposition for the Nov. 17 East final.

From a gate perspective, the prospect of Hamilton coming to town is as juicy as it comes, a sure box office hit, but one with a considerable price.

The Argos don't necessarily match up well against their arch rival, a quick team with an offensive game plan that has terrorized the Argos in all three meetings this season.

The Montreal Alouettes, who helped close out the season Friday night in what can be charitably described as a football game, don't match up well against the Argos.

Either way, the Argos will be favoured to advance to Regina and defend their Grey Cup.

The Argos defended their title in 1997, the last time the franchise won 12 games, a feat this year's edition could not achieve as the Als came back to win, 23-20.
