No one associated with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats is willing to look beyond Sunday's East semifinal and begin to imagine the potential if a win against the Montreal Alouettes is able to be achieved.

In a business that demands focus and dealing with the present, it's understandable why Sunday's challenge must be embraced.

But imagine Hamilton playing the Argos in an East final and one can see an event that is like the Grey Cup in feel and intensity, a rare moment for two historic rivals to go toe-to-toe with a berth in the CFL's big game at stake.

Standing in the way of this dream scenario are the Als, a team that matches up well against Hamilton, a team that could have easily played host to the semifinal had it protected the football better when Montreal last visited Guelph.

Hamilton-based Ticat fans haven't exactly warmed up to the idea of their beloved team being forced to play in Guelph as a new stadium gets built.
