Re: Throwback Thursday

I never saw him play, but in 1961 the Leos signed Tom Brown, an All-American Outland Trophy winner (top lineman in US college football). He was one of the club's biggest signings to that point. Tom was a formidable force for us at linebacker and played until 1967. He was elected to the CFL Hall of ...

Re: CFL Games of Week 18, October 20 - 22

I would not count SSK out vs CGY. Could not bet on them however.

Also, I would not count WPG out vs TOR.

We will probably play hard vs the Schmos.

No hope for the Alouettes. Yup.

Re: Lions ownership discussion thread

Some speculation here ... If Braley, for any reason, does not sell prior to next season, one might think Wally could delegate the HC role to Mark Washington. Aiiee yiee yieee And yet it might be an improvement on the present situation. Do we really know what kind of philosophy Mark W would have as H...

Eskimos @ Lions Some keys ... Defence Be nice if we are able to pressure Reilly. If not, he could light us up. Will their offence pick apart our soft, conservative zone? I expect we will contain Gable well enough. ........ Offence The Esks D Line is highly regarded. Will we have game prep that helps...
