B.C. LIONS

- OT Cory Mantyka suffered a badly broken arm against the Stamps. "There was blood everywhere," David Heasman told the Vancouver Sun. "I thought he needed a bandage for a cut, but it was the broken bone coming through the skin."

CALGARY STAMPEDERS

- Lost in the controversy of Friday night's final play was head coach Matt Dunigan's decision to concede a safety while leading by three points. The first-year coach/GM/offensive co-ordinator is taking some heat in Cowtown for the call.

EDMONTON ESKIMOS

- SB Jason Tucker, who finished with 1,632 receiving yards, had the fourth-best season in Eskimos history. Brian Kelly had 1,812 yards in 1983 and 1,665 yards in 1981, while Craig Ellis had 1,654 yards in 1990.

HAMILTON TIGER-CATS

- The Tabbies have some work to do if they're going to advance to the East Division Final against the Montreal Alouettes; they haven't beaten the Argos in 12 straight games. That stat, however, includes pre-season play.

MONTREAL ALOUETTES

- Believe it or not, if the Alouettes beat the Argonauts on Thursday night, their 14 regular-season wins will represent the most in franchise history ... QB Anthony Calvillo needs 313 passing yards to reach 6,000.

OTTAWA RENEGADES

- Their nominee for outstanding player could very well be WR Yo Murphy, who hauled in 57 catches this season for 1,055 yards. "I just wish it would have been under different circumstances," Murphy told the Ottawa Sun.

SASKATCHEWAN ROUGHRIDERS

- CB Omarr Morgan is glad the Bombers are out of the playoff race. "We lost to Winnipeg three times," he told The Leader-Post. "If I had a choice I'd rather play Edmonton because we just beat them."

TORONTO ARGONAUTS

- The Boatmen wined and dined former Heisman Trophy winner Eric Crouch last week, and the former Nebraska QB will make a decision this week whether or not to begin negotiations with the club.
