Re: Who Will Rise and Who Will Fall in 2017

Our Leos go into this season with high hopes. Their is a lot of excitement about our offence and potential scoring with Jonathan Jennings back for his second season as a starter, with both Manny and Burnham back, the signing of Chris Williams, and the concept of using four International receivers. J...

Re: Jovan leaves the Den. Confirmation on Page 8.

Just for fun, lets say we did want to go with five Nationals on the offensive line and we did it this way. LT: Steward LG: Fabian C: Husband RG: Vaillencourt RT: Facoult We have Jas Dhillon and Alex Pennell (6'7", 315 pounds) backing up the National center and guard spots. What we would need is...

Re: 2017 CFL Draft - What Players Will Our Leos Choose

Wally and other CFL "thinkers" who believe/pre-determine that only 7 National players should be starting for them will often use the draft to address "depth" or back-ups or special teamers, when there is often instead the opportunity to use the draft to maybe get a guy who can a...

Re: 2017 CFL Draft - What Players Will Our Leos Choose

There is a decent chance that our Leos will draft Maine linebacker Chris Mulumba in the first round. But we do already have a big of a log jam there for essentially one position that is almost exclusively held by an International. Our Leos went hard after Bombers linebacker Tony Burnett in free agen...

Re: Jovan leaves the Den. Confirmation on Page 8.

The Jovan Oliifioye trade for David Facult was an attention getter this off-season. Trading Olifioye, who had played 7 seasons for our Leos, had been a CFL All-Star each season as a Leo, had never been injured, and never even gave up a quarterback sack during some seasons came as a shock to Leo fans...

Re: Jovan leaves the Den. Confirmation on Page 8.

It will be interesting to see who ends up playing right tackle for our Leos this 2017 season. Last year, we started the season with Antonio Johnson, with free agent Levy Adcock injured at training camp. Adcock came highly recommended by Dan Dorazio, who coached him in Regina the season before. Adcoc...

Re: What the Hervey firing means to the Lions

I doubt that Neil McEvoy or Geroy Simon would get serious consideration for the Eskimo job. The Esks like to hire from within the Eskimo "family." I don't know who might be considered but a candidate with a history in the city, having played for or worked for the organization, would likel...

Re: Who Will Rise and Who Will Fall in 2017

As mentioned a number of times in previous posts on this thread, the team that I see improving the most this season are the Saskatchewan Roughriders. The major reason why is the talent they are assembling. The reason why that talent is going to Regina is Chris Jones. His coaching staff followed him ...

Re: Orridge Steps Down as CFL Commissioner

Orridge was the CFL’s ninth full-time commissioner since 1984. The NFL has had an equal number of commissioners in its entire history, dating back to 1920. Since 1960, only three men have held that position in the NFL — Pete Rozelle, Paul Tagliabue and Roger Goodell. Orridge’s replacement will becom...

Re: What the Hervey firing means to the Lions

Rhodes believes that he can pack 40,000 fans per game into Commonwealth. The fall guy was Hervey, who would not allow media access to the locker room. But will access to the locker room be the key in the future to the Eskimos filling up the stadium? I highly doubt it. But if the Eskimos start to los...

Re: Orridge Steps Down as CFL Commissioner

Of the CFL’s 19 commissioners, only three (Sidney Halter 1958-66, Jake Gaudaur 1968-84 and Mark Cohon 2007-15) served for more than four years. The reputation of the league’s board of governors when it comes to not being so adept at empowering its commissioners won’t help the CFL lure the best-in-c...

Re: Who Will Rise and Who Will Fall in 2017

Got some good prospects there, Blitz. This fan would be happy if we are able to draft two of: Ankou, Ekakitie, Gray, Woods, Bladek, Luke, Boateng or Spooner I think this is a year where we have to try to land 3 top linemen. WR, LB, TE, DB not so crucial IMO. Do you like Boateng WCJ? I worry that he...

B.C.FAN wrote:Iannuzzi and Adekolu have been everywhere this offseason, representing the Lions in the community. That probably helps solidify their roles on the team.


It does but Olifioye did a lot of community work too and he is now eating poutine and learning French. :wink:
