If there's one thing the Hamilton Tiger-Cats are good at, it’s finishing last overall in the CFL.

The Tabbies have been rather toothless over the past couple of decades, ending up in the basement a whopping nine times in the last 23 years. That’s almost once every other year.

The Ticats finished dead last in the CFL last season with a 6-12 record. They had the same record as the Bombers, but got the first overall draft pick because they lost the season series to the Blue and Gold. So at least there was that.

Now the Ticats have gone from worst-to -almost-first, getting to the Grey Cup a year after living at the bottom of the pile. Since they’ve spent so much time looking up at every other CFL team, they are naturally the leaders when it comes from going from last place one year to the Grey Cup the next.
