The 2001 CFL season, along with the 1999 CFL season and the 2010 CFL season, would be one of the closest times (even the closest of the three seasons) where an East Division team could have cross over to the West Division for that division's last playoff spot since the introduction of the Cross over in 1995. The Toronto Argonauts had to only win one more game to go 8-10-1, to beat the BC Lions final standings by a overtime loss advantage, or the Lions had to lose a game for the same result. This was settled in the last game of the season for both teams. The opposing team, which surprising was the same team for both, was the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, long time rivals of Toronto. The Tiger-Cats were defeated by BC, but defeated Toronto, ensuring no cross over.--220.127.116.11 (talk) 05:11, 6 November 2010 (UTC)
Close wins and losses by both teams against the Saskatchewan Roughriders also play a role in the ultimate final standing outcome.--18.104.22.168 (talk) 21:47, 6 November 2010 (UTC)
