It’s a good problem to have, one no one could have envisioned when the season began and the euphoria of the Argos winning the Grey Cup subsided.

But when two historic rivals are pitted against each other with a berth in the CFL’s championship game on the line, it speaks to the appeal of three-down football when the stars align.

In the following days, the Ticats will wrestle with different schemes on how to contain Ricky Ray and the Argos’ lethal passing game.

In the days leading up to kickoff, the Argos will have to scheme against a very explosive and versatile Ticats offence that won’t have to deal with the elements.

In the Argos’ boardroom, a decision will ultimately have to be made on whether to open up the 500 level at Rogers Centre.

“That’s the debate we’re having right now,’’ said Argos executive chairman and CEO Chris Rudge. “We don’t do it unless the lower bowl is basically sold out. We’re moving in that direction.”
