GUELPH, ONT. - It appears a lot of teams are going to get healthy at Winnipeg’s expense this season.

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats just got their exposure to this stumbling team over with a little earlier than most and they extracted every little bit of positivity they could get.

In a game that started out like Winnipeg might be on the receiving end of a beating of historic proportions, give the woeful Bombers credit for at least making this a game through the middle quarters.

But a strong start and an equally strong finish by the home side resulted in a 37-14 victory for the Ticats and propelled them to a .500 record though the first eight games of the season.

The fact that three of the Ticats’ four wins have come against this struggling Bombers team and the other against the similarly inept Eskimos does not take anything away from the accomplishment, at least from where head coach and GM Kent Austin sits.
