The light at the end of this deep, dark tunnel the Argos have been travelling through is beginning to show itself.

It sounds odd even reading that about a club that is out in front of the Eastern Conference. All it means is the Argos aren’t the only team wrestling with some early turmoil in the East.

The Argos demons, though, are different from what the expansion RedBlacks are experiencing and the Anthony Calvillo-less Alouettes are going through. The Hamilton Tiger-Cats, this week’s opponents might be the only team that can relate to what Toronto is going through.

Hamilton has been homeless for a year and a half and just yesterday finally got into their new stadium, although still surrounded by construction and still a hint of doubt that they’ll even be playing at home on Monday for the Labour Day Classic.

The Argos practised at their third of what should be (just) three temporary homes before they eventually set up shop at Downsview.
