B.C. LIONS

- Wally Buono doesn't feel sorry for the Roughriders, who feel they got screwed by the B.C. Place timekeepers on Saturday. "If you want to take the human element out, play Madden," Buono told the Vancouver Province.

CALGARY STAMPEDERS

- Reports are that head coach Matt Dunigan will keep special teams coach Trey Junkin around next season, but he's uncertain about everyone else.

EDMONTON ESKIMOS

- The last time QB Jason Maas started a playoff game was in the 2001 West Division Final against the Stampeders. The Esks turned the ball over 12 times and lost 34-16.

HAMILTON TIGER-CATS

- Understatement of the year, courtesy of rookie head coach Greg Marshall: "If you had told me at the beginning of the year that we would finish 9-8-1, I would have been very happy."

MONTREAL ALOUETTES

- The cream of the regular-season crop may be breaking up. Some of its free agents include WR Jeremaine Copeland, CB Davis Sanchez, LB Duane Butler and DBs Kelly Malveaux.

OTTAWA RENEGADES

- Free-agent signing WR Pat Woodcock never got going in his hometown this season, finishing with just 36 catches for 504 yards and two touchdowns.

SASKATCHEWAN ROUGHRIDERS

- They have just one win in their last 11 regular-season appearances at Commonwealth Stadium and are on a five-game losing streak there.

TORONTO ARGONAUTS

- They sat a dozen starters and got creamed by the Als. "If we played our starters and a couple got nicked up, then people say, 'Well, why would they play them during a meaningless game,'" said DB Adrion Smith.
