Re: Lions Receive Bylaw Fine

Better explanation here: Rick Dhaliwal‏ @DhaliwalSports 1h1 hour ago (1) If he did not sign in the NFL, the #BCLions had a signed contract to bring Adam Bighill back on the roster on an assigned date. (2) This signing did not make Bighill a true free agent in the CFL's eyes. #BCLions . 1 reply 0 ret...

Re: Lions Receive Bylaw Fine

Thanks for posting that Bosco. Farhan offers some insight about it here. Nothing egregious IMO. No cap violation or anything. Farhan Lalji‏Verified account @FarhanLaljiTSN 1h1 hour ago #BCLions fined $2500 for verbally agreeing to give @Bighill44 a window to explore #NFL opportunities (& putting...

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

What do you think they are talking about on TSN 990 Montreal this week? Alouettes mini-camp or Habs post mortem? Ditto for the Senators playoff run on the Ottawa station. And both those stations are the rightsholders for those CFL teams. What part of "I don't expect Lions coverage to mirror th...

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

I respectfully disagree Matt. No one on here would reasonably expect Lions coverage to mirror that of the Canucks, or really, even come close. Hockey is Canadian sports talk radio's security blanket. Station execs and hosts know (as you're well aware) that they can bring up hockey discussion 12 mont...

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

Rogers have announced today they have purchased CISL 650 and turning it into an all-sports station. So that's where the Canucks have landed and Bell's competition has arrived. What happens to the Lions broadcasts rights now? What on air personalities jump over to 650? Interesting times. Being a Rog...

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

Twitter is the favourite platform of journalists, news junkies and U.S. presidents, but more people rely on Facebook for news and information. Here are the comparative numbers for Facebook and Instagram Never sure how accurate these "follows" are to begin with. I am surprised/not surprise...

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

I don't know if what we're seeing is a decline or if it's an industry being reshaped by technology and the way people consume their media content in the 2010s as opposed to the way most of us grew up getting our information. Back in the day I couldn't wait to get the paper to read columns of Jim Ta...

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

NOTE - I have changed the name of this thread (née "Rintoul is toast (grab the pitch forks and storm TSN 1040)" to a kind of all-encompassing "shifting Vancouver sports landscape" thread, the latest casualty of which is Postmedia's Mike Beamish. Not sure if Mike left on his own v...

Re: Orridge Steps Down as CFL Commissioner

Let me toss in my :2cents: worth: While we're considering former CFL players, how about someone who played in over half the 9 CFL cities over 23 seasons and set records everywhere he went - Damon Allen? Not absolutely certain about this, but you miiiiight just get a slight objection to this idea fr...

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

Some interesting details today from 3 Down Nation's Justin Dunk on Foucault's contract with the Leos HERE. "Recently-acquired Canadian offensive lineman David Foucault signed a three-year contract with the BC Lions last Tuesday. The 28-year-old received a $25,000 signing bonus as part of his 20...

Re: Throwback Thursday

I think perhaps too much was expected of Moorhead when he came up here. Despite playing in the Rose Bowl and setting 24 school records at Michigan, he played under Bo Schebechler's mostly running/option style offense. He actually did have a couple of great passing games in his first season (1971) - ...

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: 2017 CFL Draft - What Players Will Our Leos Choose

So what are you saying, Blitz? That Marco Iannuzzi, Dino Valli, and Richie Leone were all given favourable treatment around here from Buono and Dorazio because their last names end with a vowel? :)

Re: Throwback Thursday

I agree with you B.C. FAN. A big part of the bleak period from '65 - '76 was sub-par quarterbacking. They just couldn't replace Joe Kapp. I also think that apart from Jim Young, the club didn't really possess many standout receivers during that stretch. Sure, there was Highbaugh whom we mentioned ea...
