Re: Eskimos vs. Lions June 24, 2017

Intrigue in the palace, Wally's royal court. When this fan was a little closer to the action, one recalls Benny and Jacques evaluating their chances at succession to the top job. JC clearly thought Benny had the inside track. Mark W might have been perceived as a threat at the top by Benny. Who kno...

Re: Eskimos vs. Lions June 24, 2017

This is like Christmas Eve for me. One more sleep 'til the season opener!!! Did anyone catch Benny on TSN1040 yesterday? Heart (worn on sleeve) still firmly entrenched in BC. Said he still dearly loves his guys like Solly and Manny but there are some he doesn't have the time of day for, which I thou...

Re: The 2017 Season - Your Predictions

As much as there is to like about the Leos this year, assuming everyone stays healthy, the West still runs through Calgary, but you could easily argue everyone except the Riders in the West has a chance. Yup. As much as our Leos are media darlings this year - and I do believe we have a really good ...

Re: Lions vs. Roughriders June 16, 2017

Funny, I liked the sack dance. Quick, memorable and effective. But maybe because I am a big Roh fan. For a league that recently went on record as saying they want to reduce flags, especially those that don't have any effect on player safety, they could start there. More innocent than a Saturday morn...

3 Down Radio Show on now. Scotty, Giulio, and LU previewing the season. They're teasing some kind of position change for Saturday. Safety? http://www.iheartradio.ca/tsn/tsn-vancouver-1040?autoplay=1.1748196 DH :cool: Not sure if many of you caught the show last night, but there is talk that we coul...

Re: 2017 All Things Lions Marketing & Promotions

To the Lions' credit they're hyping Saturday's game against the Esks. Full page (outside cover) with "Who Is Jonathon Jennings in today's Province." That is outside cover as in before any news headlines. Just the mast and Jennings. Then turn the page and it's another full page with details on the ga...

Re: Lions ownership discussion thread

This past weekend I spoke with a few American tourists who recognized my Leo's togs and they started talking CFL. They were all "yeah, we watch CFL. We love it! It is so fast paced, exciting" etc. Maybe those young Canadians resistant to the charms of 3 down football need to listen to the American ...

Re: Lions ownership discussion thread

Haha, I'd love to know the point at which Canada went soft on Toronto. It used to be despised (envied?). Hogtown. Centre Of The Universe. The epicentre of Canadian commerce. In the white collar world, all good jobs led there, and if you stayed in your hometown, you did so at your (career) peril. The...

Re: Lions ownership discussion thread

No, by "connecting" I don't just mean attendance, although in a gate-driven league that's a huge part of it. I am talking about buzz generated, and it's one of those intangibles you'd have to experience by living here. Lions' games were the 3rd highest rated in the league on TSN last year, so by tha...

Re: Lions ownership discussion thread

"my friends don't acre anymore" ...said the dyslexic farmer. :wink: Sorry, couldn't resist. Excellent points as usual Cro. There are likely as many answers as to why attendance has waned as there are players on the field. Likely a confluence of factors: * cost of living on the Lower Mainland * esca...

Re: Lions vs. Roughriders June 16, 2017

So the trade shakes down as this: QB Drew Willy (currently looking for a team) for DL Faith Ekakitie (the #1 pick in the 2017 CFL draft) and DB T.J. Heath, who was a CFL All-Star last season and tied for the league lead in INTs with 7. Sounds fair. :roll: Oh yea, the Bombers also get the Argos' 3rd ...

Re: Lions vs. Roughriders June 16, 2017

Also, special teams tackling looked good last night, but we're now going to have to make up for the huge production from Ontko and Arakgi. Awe will get his ST tackles for sure, but other guys are going to have to step up. Chandler Fenner was flying downfield last night and had three tackles on spec...

Re: Lions cuts

I don't like seeing anyone lose their jobs, but in saying that I'm still surprised at how Shaq Murray-Lawrence remains on the team. I haven't seen much in him from his limited playing time. He hasn't looked good returning kicks either. I don't know why we keep him around and let other guys (from ot...
