Re: The rich get richer - Esks aquire Chick

It seems a sign of dumping an older guy and $$$$ whose not lighting it up (0 and 8) for futures. Esks can afford to get a short termer here as they're beaten up a bit.

Chris Williams doesn't seem to have the blazing speed since pre-injury ?

Re: Lions vs. Stamps Aug. 18, 2017

Nice signal. 46 comes in and they run to start.. VEry innovative guys... Sets a poor tone after a decent finish to the half

Re: Lions vs. Stamps Aug. 18, 2017

It is too bad that a healthy Lulay is not playing. Jennings hasn't looked so good at all this year. I disagree with WBs insistence on going with Jennings unless Lulay is still not well. Thanks KIA. That throw to a WIDE open REC should get them moving. I doubt given Lulay a series would harm Jennings

I'm watching but go to 1040 for comments at times and no Moj but Farhan calling the play. Where's Moj?

Re: Question about a Rule

Yes. I think it only applies to the last 3 minutes of a game. Otherwise teams can still opt to scrimmage at the 35 after a field goal. :whs: SECTION 2 – KICKOFF Article 1 – Points Of Kickoff The ball shall be kicked off by a place kick from any point between the hash marks on Team A’s: (a) 35-yard ...

Re: Riders 41 - Lions 8, Post-Game Stats and Comments

...and here's hoping-and-praying that new regime you look forward to DanoT is not headed by either Mr. M. Washington or Mr. K. Jones. I know it's useless to worry about things beyond your control.... but, I worry. Silly me. It was rumoured that Mark Washington will be Buono's replacement when he re...

Re: Leos/Riders Round 2 - Game Day Thread

Lions should forget about this game and start focusing on Calgary. Given the fast turnaround, yes. Learn the lesson and prepare for the Stamps but serve notice this ain't happening again. If Gainey didn't get the 4th INT, Duron Carter playing Corner was sure to snag it. He also had a decent run. So...

Re: CFL Games of Week 8, August 10 - 13

Chris Carter is undoubtedly highly skilled but is a loose cannon. He's talking trash after scoring a touchdown in which his team is trailing by 30 points. Well he seems to have trouble with consistency at the plate but he can hit big time when he does connect with the ball... Oh, you mean Duron Car...

Though I am still not quite sure what Proulx was explaining with the illegal kickoff? Was it a simple case of the ball not travelling the required distance?
Out of bounds, I believe.
I think he said the Rider player who touched it landed out of bounds so ball to BC.

Re: Eskimos 37 - Lions 26, Post-Game Stats and Comments

Travis Lulay said pre-game they had to avoid 2nd and long situations or they could be in trouble. Lions opening plays IIRC had them where he said they didn't want to be. Similar half time comments. I thought the offensive opening versus Edmonton's set the wrong tone for the Lion's offense. It's not ...

Re: The decline of Vancouver sports media & its effect on Lions

How TSN can let Scott Rintoul go to a new sports radio in this market is freaking ridiculous. Not only is his pxp excellent, he's an astute football analyst. But given how they let him go, you can't blame him. Nothing against the Moj - he's great but with 3 in the booth it's nuts. I used to like the...

Re: CFL Games of Week 1

So Calgary Ottawa, was it a fumble or was it not on the last Calgary TD drive, the drive that tied the game. I thought it was a fumble. Commentators thought it was a fumble, CFL command, not a fumble. That is twice in 2 games and two days where it seems like they were looking at something else comp...
