Re: Jovan could be on his way out of the Den

They want Foucault as depth/1-2 punch to go with Steward at one NI OT spot? Could have kept Jovon and instead drafted a good OT prospect to back-up Steward. They could have also waited on 2015 draft pick Brett Boyko who, despite finding regular employment on NFL practice squads, has not seen any re...

Re: Jovan could be on his way out of the Den

Wow. In the words of the great chanteuse Peggy Lee, "is that all there is?" No disrespect to David Foucault 'cause I haven't even seen him play, but I was expecting a lot more. So this essentially comes down to one of the greatest linemen to ever don orange and black, in the prime of his c...

Re: Old BC Lions Games

Does anyone know where i can get old BC Lions games from the late 70's to early 80's preferably empire stadium games. I have a full game from 1978 at Empire on DVD. It was played on a crisp, clear night on 10/21/78 in which we beat Ottawa 20-17. There are 2 other games avaiable from that year, but ...

Re: 2017 CFL Draft - What Players Will Our Leos Choose

Of course the draft rarely turns out to be as many project. Correct. Sometimes teams take say, an inexperienced defensive end "project" with the #5 overall selection despite being projected as a 2nd round pick by the Canadian Football League Scouting Bureau, then cut him the following spr...

Re: Jovan could be on his way out of the Den

If the Lions can secure the services of a starting Canadian offensive lineman for an import lineman it's a good deal. Only if Foucault turns into the next Josh Bourke, then yea. But Wally is really rolling the dice here by jettisoning a proven All-Star who has a home in Pt. Roberts and loves being ...

RIP Larry Highbaugh

CFL Hall Of Famer Larry Highbaugh just passed away in the state of Georgia, where he'd been teaching. He was 67 years old. STORY HERE. Although known as a perennial All-Star DB with the Esks, Mr. Highbaugh got his CFL start with the Leos in 1971. He came to the club on August 16 on a 5 day trial. He...

Re: Jovan could be on his way out of the Den

Blitz, I am in total agreement. I guess we can say 'no news is good news' as I have heard nothing from Jovan's camp. Or Wally. Or anyone from the Lions for that matter. By all accounts, Swayze Waters is a charming young man. Community minded, devoted to his family and religion, and a good quote. But...

Re: Lions looking at tailgate parties this season?

I suppose it is a step in the right direction, but it's only a baby step and likely the only step. Bringing sandwiches and buying overpriced beer is NOT tailgating. Can't say I blame them for trying to monetize the pre game experience but let's call it what it is ... whatever that is *lol I agree 1...

Re: Jovan could be on his way out of the Den

There is also the potential to get a pretty good return in this trade. Sure, there is potential for a decent return for Jovan, but I believe there's a better than even chance of Wally ending up wearing a 'fleece' sweater, courtesy of Kavis Reed. 1) We're limiting our trade partners to Eastern Divis...

Lions looking at tailgate parties this season?

The Lions just sent out a season ticket holder survey that asked how I get to games. They seemed to want to know if I was interested in some form of a tailgate experience (presumably ripping a page from the Argos book from last season?). One of the questions was: If there was a pre-game tailgate exp...

Re: Jovan could be on his way out of the Den

Rick Dhaliwal is tweeting that Montreal is the interested party. Rick Dhaliwal‏ @DhaliwalSports The #BCLions and Montreal talking trade about OL Jovan Olafioye. Work to be done before deal done. The problem is, if Wally is to get fair value in return, the player(s) he receives are going to count aga...

Jovan could be on his way out of the Den

Two rumours recently surfaced about Wally shopping Jovan Olafioye. The 2nd report today provides more details, so I am posting a link HERE. It seems we overspent on free agents (really?!? I think we came up rather light compared to some other teams. Perhaps it was inking all those veterans to extens...

Re: Rintoul is toast (grab the pitch forks and storm TSN 104

According to one source, the Canucks’ owners have made an offer which, depending on who you talk to, was either rejected or is being considered. The $64,000 question: If Braley had accepted the Aquilini offer instead of letting him twist in the wind, would Aquilini have just kept things status quo ...

Re: Final wrap on free agency: Offence and Defence

Our defense needs to play more man defense in 2017 and to play some press man. It also needs to run some combo man/zone coverages. Perhaps the off-season signings of 6'3" 205lb Robert Brown and 6'1" 190lb Buddy Jackson signals a philosophical change from predominantly soft zone coverage t...

Vintage Lions jersey #66 up for auction on Ebay

Interestingly, the owner of this jersey is playing up the fact that it's Emery Barnes's jersey, as well as the 1964 Grey Cup win. There's just one problem. Emery Barnes never wore it (he never played in the 1964 Grey Cup game either, but that's another story). http://www.ebay.com/itm/rare-1964-BC-Li...
