The ALSternative — 2020 Training Camp Tidbits (sorta)

Well, this is not how I expected to be writing a column in May 2020…. In a perfect world, Montreal Alouettes training camp would already be a week old with this weekend hosting the annual scrimmage game. This blog would have already featured the usual in-depth season preview and we’d be getting to know all … More The ALSternative — 2020 Training Camp Tidbits (sorta)

The ALSternative: An in-depth look at CFLFA 2020 for the Montreal Alouettes

Once again, I’m terribly late with this particular column. Free agency has been ongoing for two months now. We’ll just chalk this up to a pandemic-fueled delay, as I hope all of you are staying safe during these difficult times we are living in. This was the first free agency period overseen by Danny Maciocia … More The ALSternative: An in-depth look at CFLFA 2020 for the Montreal Alouettes

Alouettes completely revamp their off-field look for 2020

What a difference a fortnight can make. When this year started, the Montreal Alouettes were still under the ownership of the Canadian Football League. The team halted its search to fill the vacant general manager position and they jettisoned incumbent president and CEO Patrick Boivin. After a season where the on-field product was brilliant despite … More Alouettes completely revamp their off-field look for 2020

Clock strikes midnight for the Montreal Alouettes’ Cinderella season

It seems almost poetic that there is a good chance that the next owner(s) of the Montreal Alouettes made their bones in Hollywood as film/TV producers. One look at the 2019 season for this team and you almost wonder if it was scripted by one of Tinseltown’s great storytellers. Imagine a script writer penning this … More Clock strikes midnight for the Montreal Alouettes’ Cinderella season

Alouettes top RedBlacks for their first winning season in seven years

Just once, I’d really like the Montreal Alouettes to just flat-out curb stomp an opponent versus playing a game that is the textbook definition of a nail-biter. But that’s clearly not their style in 2019. Not even versus an opponent that’s had a very miserable season and probably just wanted to go home and prepare … More Alouettes top RedBlacks for their first winning season in seven years

Alouettes lose rubber match to Tiger-Cats to end regular season home stand

The next time that a football game will be played here at Percival Molson Stadium, the stakes will be a lot higher and hopefully the play will reflect that. The Montreal Alouettes hosted the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in their last regular season home game and made it interesting at first, but then played it safe. A … More Alouettes lose rubber match to Tiger-Cats to end regular season home stand

Alouettes play it safe and survive battle versus the Argonauts

I wish I knew why the Montreal Alouettes seem to enjoy participating in football games that are a lot closer than they have any right to be. Like we have seen numerous times before this season, the Alouettes managed to pull a win from out of their behinds. In this case, it was a 27-24 … More Alouettes play it safe and survive battle versus the Argonauts
