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

Iain MacIntyre has written a nice tribute to his longtime colleague. Lions fans have been spoiled by a generation of great beat writers. After 43 years at the paper, mostly covering the Lions in some way, Beamish will be missed. I didn't realize this, but according to MacIntyre, Beamish is 69, two ...

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

Gheez. Gonna miss Mike Beamish. A great guy. Love his columns, that have much more than the scores. Lots of human intetest stories and insight. Had many, many fun chats with Mike at practice over the years. :thup: sixbeamers :thup: All the best, Mike. Hopefully you do not retire the pen. Hopefully y...

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

Wasted first and second round picks? If we do not draft 3 linemen with our first three picks, this fan will be wondering, ready to pounce and criticize. LOL Do we need linemen more or a receiver? A linebacker? A DB? A RB? It seems clear to this fan that we need OL and DL. And this is a bumper crop y...

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

This fan would call this steps in the process of the Lions move towards starting NAT OL tackles (or at least one NAT OL tackle). Steward was the start. I expect he surprised Wally and Dan in some respects. He was very, very solid at left tackle prior to his injury. Wally has shown some reluctance to...

Re: What the Hervey firing means to the Lions

I think Hervey's firing is less about his stance against media access and more about Hervey being a contrarian who is constantly butting heads with his boss. Sometimes it is best to go along with your boss's wishes just to acknowledge that he is the boss otherwise you wake up one day, like Hervey, ...

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: 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...

Yes. Many memories. Jim Evenson was a Mack Truck. He could move the pile. He could find holes. He was a load to tackle. 6'3'' 230 by one listing. Article by Jim Taylor. "In churning magnificently through the mud of Empire Stadium for 154 yards ... " :thup: "With Fleming in '63 it was ...

Re: Throwback Thursday

Eagle had a shifty back named Bobby (Moore? something) in Regina. He was asked if he could get a back like that in Vancouver. Ashton was his answer. And then ... gone. But Eagle also found Monroe Eley. Lou Harris. Johnny Musso. Jim Evenson. Some absolutely great running backs. I think the player yo...
