Re: Free Agent Market and Free Agent Camps

The CFL FA market changed drastically with shorter contracts and I'd presume more FAs each year resulting in FAs being cheaper than during scarce times.

The Lions increased participation rate in signing FAs correlates to this new I suspect.

Re: Milanovich resigns

These next two hires for the Argos (assuming it's not one person to become head coach and GM - a serious mistake for someone not named Hufnagel or Buono) are absolutely critical. Not to overstate things, but with the state of this franchise being what it is, there is almost no margin for error. Tha...

Re: Joe McKnight Murdered In Road Rage Incident In New Orlea

AFAIK, Sheriffs in the US get elected so they are politicians. It kinda explains a lot. Yes, it does. I googled this guy when he first let the shooter go and found this rather unique video where he calls out the then Governor Jindal and his own Republican party and anti taxes. This might add some b...

Re: Leos/Bombers Semi-Final Post Game Thoughts

Dirty hit. By Taylor Loffler. He leaves his feet, aims his shoulder and helmet to make contact with Manny's head. Target hit. Just plain dirty. Some say a player does not know where his helmet is. Baloney. Professionals know such things exactly. Does an MMA guy know where his fists are? Does a golf...

Re: My moment of glory

Hambone comes across as a warm, friendly and humble person.

The common thread among all these folks is their love of the CFL, their team and the fans generally.

Those posted here sure are feel good stories.

Maybe I should just not bother. And I won't.

Re: B.C. Lions at Calgary Sept. 18 - Game Day thread

Nice personal attacks by Toppy instead of sound dialogue. Your dialogue amounts to nothing of substance except to attack my points that I've backed up consistently. Your views border on this issue and attacking me border on the delusional. If you've ever played this game at any level you will know ...

Re: B.C. Lions at Calgary Sept. 18 - Game Day thread

No one is saying that Manny (or anyone for that matter, except maybe Leone) isn't deserving of some criticism. When the team has played this poorly this season there's certainly enough criticism to go around. I'm just annoyed by some people (one in particular) who's been a broken record with his co...

Re: Lions @ Stampeders -- Post Game Stats and Comments

The HC said in his Rintoul interview that this game he'd be slimming it down for Beck. Make it simpler.

When Jennings came in, it's what Cortez then says is situational for him - meaning he got out of rut.

Re: B.C. Lions at Calgary Sept. 18 - Game Day thread

Honestly when a HC tolerates the kind of effort he's gotten from 84 and 85 up to now is intolerable to a team. Top players don't rise to the challenge when things are going great. 85 got a catch or two and made a nice TD stop with the tackle. I feel bad for Beck but let's move on to a QB who can ex...

Re: Lions @ Stampeders -- Post Game Stats and Comments

The great news for STs - is no penalties on the returns for TDs. They just let the guy make the play. All teams should do the same as penalties aren't worth the risk. Ask Hamilton's returner. 35 -23 is nothing to holding a parade about but if they keep exciting fans and themselves - they'll get wins...

Re: Lions @ Stampeders -- Post Game Stats and Comments

Wow Hufnagel's recorded post game short talk to his team was the way a HC has to focus and that is on the few key lessons each game (win or lose) gives a team. That is always missing from Jeff Tedford's talks. Hufnagel said something like 'I dont want to rain on your party but that's not good enough...

Re: Lions @ Stampeders -- Post Game Stats and Comments

A successful game, despite the loss. A leader emerges, making mistakes, sure, but LEADING. The team wants to play for him! Perhaps it is the "end of the beginning." So nice to see some spirit wearing Orange. Nice game Lions. Yes... leadership came in the form of Jennings. You can't credit...
