Re: 2016 Grey Cup Game Day Thread

I've mentioned this before, but the Stamps and Lions have always alternated GC wins with each other. Neither team has captured two Cups without the other winning one in between, and that "streak", if you want to call it that, continues with this outcome. Seven different teams have now won the last s...

You'd never say this was the same team that creamed us last week.

Re: 2016 Grey Cup Game Day Thread

Transition graphic from replay back to live action is annoying. Big shield clears away too slow for a good look at the pre-snap formation; sometimes even post-snap.

Maybe TSN are the ones most in need of halftime adjustments.

Re: Leos/Bombers Post-Game Thoughts

My immediate impression on live viewing of the late Harris "fumble" was that the fumble itself was irrelevant because there was a quick whistle on the play. In whistling the play dead where there is a live ball carrier, the officials need not wait until he is tackled to the ground — if they feel in ...

Re: World Cup

As far as this novelty team format of Team NA and Team EUR, I can't see the USA allowing that if there is another WC. If USA had Gostisbehere, Matthews, Eichel, Saad, and Gaudreau in their lineup, they would probably have made it out of the round robin. (Of course that depends on how badly managed ...

Re: World Cup

The only issue I have with it would be how unlikely kids of that age in 2016 would be to do this. I am old enough to remember seeing all the goals depicted live (I was just becoming a hockey fan in 1970) but I think Crosby Olympics 2010 would have made a lot more sense for today's kids. But I think...

Re: Lions vs. Argos Game Day Thread

This is the first time in Lions franchise history winning back to back games in Ontario. Mind you there haven't been a lot of such opportunities to convert — the last chance came in 1992 when they were swept in Ott & Ham. Hats off to our D — after allowing a TD on the Argos' opening drive of the bal...

Re: Lions vs. Argos Game Day Thread

The TSN play by play crew -- which I consider among the worst broadcasters I have ever encountered -- strikes me as being systematically biased in their commentary. But there is no place on the TSN website to make such an observation. I know, the answer is to use the radio broadcast for the sound t...

Re: Lions vs. Argos Game Day Thread

Penalty agains the Lions. Why isn't there another play ? My understanding is that you can't end a quarter on a penalty I was thinking same at first but Bazzie's OC was a dead ball foul so I don't think that applies in this case. I mean, to take it to an extreme, what would happen if a flag was thro...

Re: Lions vs. Argos Game Day Thread

Thanks Wally. No chance for FG with your horrible clock management. Timeout never used. Inexcusable. I wonder if this mid-season rule change of losing a timeout for a first failed challenge is making teams rethink when to use them. You now need to have one to mount your first challenge, which wasn'...
