Re: Don Matthews Passes Away

Mathew's was an innovator who stuck up for his players and allowed them to have fun in practice so they laid it all on the line game day. Exciting offense plays, great ST plays, and D that dictates to the opposition. He brought swagger to the Lions team that captured this resistant sports town. Lion...

Orridge Steps Down as CFL Commissioner

He is leaving early from his contract according to CKNW News.

Interesting timing as the season is about to start.

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

Just listened to Wally on 1040 with Sekeres and Price. He didn't want to offer anything up on the reasoning other than salary. However at the end he did make a point of saying that the exciting team last year wasn't good enough to compete with the Stamps and players were getting beat. Then he change...

Re: Rintoul toast

That is too bad, Rintoul was a very good Lion supporter, bringing his football background into the equation. I guess we get more US babbling radio in his timeslot. As for the Lions broadcasts, it is becoming a revolving door which hurts the product in the end. No surprise with the T(oronto) S(ports)...

Re: Riders at Lions Nov. 5 postgame comments

Lions run D was really good. They will need that next week. The only thing Jones accomplished this year in Regina is turning a last place team into another last place team. I will go one better, all Jones did was take a last place team without Durant into another last place team with Durant. Quite ...

Re: Paul McCallum to sign with Lions

However, five days into training camp in 2015, without a proven field goal kicker was not the right time to do it. McCallum had kicked 38/42 yard field goals the season before. Leone had relatively no experience at field goal kicking. So the bigger joke was to try to convert him so quickly into a f...

Re: Leos/Riders Post Game Thoughts

Blitz, always good to read your assessments. Sinkfield is playing the coach killer role right now. Thankfully the Lions have enough quality receivers to keep the ball moving the yardsticks. If Sinkfield could live up to his 1000 yard receiving season, the pressure our opposition D's would open up fo...

Re: Leos/Eskimos Post Game Thoughts

Haven't posted much the last couple of games, just tired of poor reffing calls and even worse League Centre calls costing the Lions opportunities for hard fought wins. Today's game is no different, with the Reilly fumble that Wally lost a TO on. That should have been called by the League Centre unde...

Re: Lions vs. Eskimos Game Day Thread

They didn't do what they needed to do. They looked a little off all night and for some reason, they didn't do much of a job spreading the ball around tonight. Focused on Arceneaux a little too much and 2 picks killed us. Especially that last one. They needed to be better on offense to keep the Esks...

Re: Lions vs. Eskimos Game Day Thread

The Eskimos were fill value for the win. The game still came down to a jump ball in the end zone on the final play. From the second quarter on, Esks took it to the Lions. Zero adjustment at the and only when it was too late. The Esks D began to believe and their confidence propelled them to the end...

Re: All-Canadian (National) B.C. Lions Dream Team

You nailed it Blitz, outstanding list compiled by you and of course just a great history of Canadian talent have worn the Lion's Jersey over the years. I may have found a way for Jan Carinci to make that lust also, from a personal perspective albeit he may be better known as an Argonaut.

Re: Leos sign FA receiver Terrell Sinkfield

I recall asking Simmons what his fastest forty was, he told 4.19. If Sinkfield has that type of speed, he is exactly what Jennings needs to show off that arm and open the underneath stuff for Burnham (who is the best receiver the Lions have had since Mervyn Fernandez) and company. The Eskimo and Lio...

Re: Roughrider Rule Troubles

20 players over the roster limit isn't sustainable for most teams, so that gives/gave the Riders a decide advantage over other teams circumventing the league's attempt at a level playing field and the SMS. More importantly it involves money paid out that should be counted against the SMS that I unde...
