Just enough final-week drama to keep things exciting. Hamilton gets the shutout against Montreal, while Winnipeg coasts to victory in Calgary. Edmonton takes care of business in Saskatchewan, and Toronto does the same in Vancouver.

Reever picks the Edmonton win and that's the difference: he walks away with the 2017 title. Congratulations, Reever!

At the other end, despite a late surge, bender's been in last place for the entire second half of the season for a well-deserved Costanza. Kudos, bender!

Congratulations, Reever! For my next trick, I will attempt to repeat last year's CFL Pick 'em double-reverse: regular season pick 'em Costanza followed by a playoff pick 'em title.

I didn't do too badly for someone who has very little knowledge of CFL football. Win or lose, it's a lot of fun. Congratulations to Reever, and many thanks to Dr. John for once again running it.

Congratulations to Reever! I only failed to repeat as champion by 23 points.

I believe Bender also deserves recognition for a hard-fought Costanza. I failed there too, but left everything on the field. The longer, wider field.

Dr. J you did another fine job of running the show, and throwing in some humorous comments. Kudos!
