Another Tony Gabriel Moment

Shocked, devastated, nauseous. A great game with a horrible ending for the Rider Nation. This one will leave a mark on many. Is this how Rider fans felt in 76?

How the hell can you get caught with 13 men on the field? Don't you know by this time who is supposed to be beside you on the field goal team? Why isn't Armstead counting how many are on the field? This is a shitty way to lose!!!

Funny how I thought of Tony Gabriel immediatly after the field goal.

What a fucking punch in the stomach.

Yes it is! It took the team a long time to recover after that loss. It won't take us that long again. I have to go kick my girlfriends cat now.

I agree also. This is probably how Hamilton felt in 1989, and 1998 when they lost in Winnipeg, to the Stamps.

Mitch...somehow change the settings so that there can be NO anonymous posts. Big mouths need to take ownership for what they say.

this one is worse in some ways...although we were favored in '76...but blowing a 27-11 lead in the fourth quarter really sucks...a few more first downs here or there and the als never get a chance at that field goal...and how often does damon duval miss from 43 yards anyway...the 13th man normally wouldn't have mattered...it was the perfect storm...

76 was worse. Worse because we knew Ronnie's career was just about over and that we hadn't replaced George. As much as people didn't want to admit it, you knew some lean years were on the horizon because of the older guys. That isn't the case now. I wondered if guys like Geno, Zark and Davis might be ready to call it a career had they won. I am confident all three will be back. I also wonder if guys like Calvillo, Cahoon and Chiu may now call it a career knowing they go out on top.
