We also touch on the news that the CFL will have a salary cap for coaches and front offince personnel, and we discuss the big-name cuts that occurred over the week and which ones surprised us and which ones the Ticats should try to sign. We then give our 2018 CFL predictions, from who finishes where to who makes the playoffs to who makes and wins the Grey Cup to who takes home some player awards. We also each make a bold prediction for 2018 and close things out by previewing Hamilton's season opener on the road against the two-time defending West Division champion Calgary Stampeders.
