--The Canadian Football League could be landing in Mexico next season.  According to TSN's Farhan Lalji, there is a "very real possibility" that the CFL will play two regular season games there in 2019 and one of those games could be a summer date involving the Toronto Argonauts. While no venue has been confirmed, Lalji adds that the groups trying to get games to Mexico - including the Liga de Football Americano Profesional - believe they could draw 40,000-50,000 fans in attendance.
Canadian Football League commissioner Randy Ambrosie met with LFA officials last month to discuss ways the two leagues might work together to develop players and grow the game globally.

--After winning the Grey Cup in Ottawa last year, the Toronto Argonauts finished the regular season in Ottawa as the worst team in the CFL. The Argos lost 24-9 to finish at 4-14.

Poor Pats, another game ..... another loss!!
Not much more to be said.
Don’t think we will be hearing Phil say
“What a game what what a win” too many times this year.
Sad situation to say the least. Oh well better luck next year.

Ya, it's looking like a completely write-off year for the Pats. Same with Swift Current, who the Pats have 2 of their 4 wins over. Make trades, do anything to make us want to go to the games next season please Pats.
