"I'm going with Calgary. Tough to bet against Ricky Ray, but after the West final, tougher to bet against Dave Dickenson."
DAVE NAYLOR, TSN
"Stamps win a close one. In an evenly matched game, I'm going with the team that's been more consistent over the course of the season."
TERRY JONES, EDMONTON SUN
"Follow the storyline. Ricky Ray traded from Edmonton to try get the Toronto Argos in the Grey Cup and make the franchise relevant going forward... Toronto 36 Calgary 30."
BRUCE ARTHUR, NATIONAL POST
I keep going back and forth in this game, but I suspect the game will go back and forth, too. Home-field and Ricky Ray make the difference, and the Argos win by a field goal.
WINNIPEG FREE PRESS
"Swayze Waters becomes the Grey Cup hero with the coolest name ever, hitting from 50 as time runs out. Argos 27-25."
ROGER MILLIONS, SPORTSNET
"In a year that the Argos are seemingly destined to win, I think Hufnagel and the Stamps will win by a point."
"I think the Stamps may be more talented, but there's a certain karma around the Argos, as there was when they won in 2004. Argos by three"
DAVE ROWE, QR 77 SPORTS CALGARY
" Don't want to be a homer but it's hard to bet against the Stamps given all the adversity they've fought through just to get here."
630 CHED EDMONTON
"Picking the Argonauts: I don't know if Kevin Glenn can string together back-to-back solid outings. I know Ricky Ray can."
"Calgary will win by less than a touchdown and will spoil the party. Kevin Glenn will be a champion at last."
"Eskimos. Ricky Ray can still play. Right, Mr. T?"
"Arrrrgooooos! Ricky Ray shines in the Grey Cup, where he is 2-1 lifetime. He'll sparkle again on Sunday."
DOUG DIRKS, CBC CALGARY
"Cornish is top Canadian. Owens is Most Outstanding Player. Cornish wins tiebreaker on Sunday"
ARASH MADANI, SPORTSNET
After what Calgary's unheralded defence did to Travis Lulay and the Lions, there's no reason to believe they can't shut down the Argos in the red zone either. Stamps, in a close one.
630 CHED EDMONTON
"Ricky Ray and the Argos to win the Grey Cup. Its been a tough year for Eskimo fans, this won't help."
"Calgary 31, Toronto 16. Calgary's toughest obstacle was B.C. Grey Cup is a formality.''
IAN HAMILTON, REGINA LEADER-POST
"I'm picking the Argos. Ricky Ray again gets the better of his former Battle of Alberta foes."
CHRIS O'LEARY, EDMONTON JOURNAL
"Ricky Ray has played too well and has too much momentum behind him to lose. His trade saga ends spectacularly on Sunday."
IAN BUSBY, CALGARY SUN
Five years ago, Kevin Glenn missed his chance to taste glory. He savours it this time and is focused and ready for the moment.
"The Calgary Stampeders have caught the proverbial wave and will win 27-17 over a determined Toronto team."
"Stamps by 10 on their coaching."
