Re: Menard has re-signed with the Lions

Hervey seems to be following the Wally routine. Methodically get the guys you really want to keep under contract. It's why I don't get overly excited about who the pending FAs are until about a week before the deadline. That's when I start worrying about who isn't signed and start looking at other t...

Re: Darian Durant - Signs 1 year deal with Bombers

My fiendish dream is that Durant has to come off the bench in the Labour Day Classic to lead the Bombers to a come-from-behind win over the Riders at Mosaic. The reaction over on RF would be epic! ;)

Re: Sports & Stuff boarded up ?

Rick posted in here earlier that they were unable to negotiate a new lease that worked for him so they were closing at that location but will be reopening as soon as they come up with a new location. :good: We always make a point of stopping at SportsNStuff when we go through Chilliwack on our way ...

Re: Jennings contract re-structured

Ross has not had any significant playing time so far in his brief career. He now has one year under his belt with incredible mentorship from the likes of Lulay and Jennings. He will be one to watch closely in TC and pre-season to see if he respond meaningfully in his sophomore year. In training cam...

Re: Glenn signs in Edmonton

Glenn in the CFHOF? I think that's lowering the bar from guys who were truly great or dominant at their position at some point in their careers to being merely average to good for extended periods but fortunate enough to play a long time. Kevin Glenn's career: CFL Years - 17 and counting Grey Cups -...

Re: Jennings contract re-structured

Speculation over that has pegged just about every loose QB as going to the Lions. Some hinted that the Riders pulled the trigger on Collaros because BC had expressed interest in him according to one of their regulars who claims to have "connections" in Calgary. They figure Adams could wind up here....

Re: Jennings contract re-structured

If Lulay returns in time for training camp, then all is well for 2018 at least. But if it is halfway through the season, we better have a better backup than Alex Ross. Even if Lulay does return, it may only be for a year, and Jennings is no sure thing. Not sure if you listened to TSN1040's intervie...

Re: Jennings contract re-structured

There is some speculation over at Riderfans that the Lions might have some interest in Vernon Adams. Personally, I think this could be a good fit. I don't think we can count on Lulay being ready to start the year, and we don't have anyone else on the roster who could step in for Jennings if needed....

There was another linebacker that the Lions converted into a rush end. I can't recall his name at the moment. Greg Stumon ?
Stumon actually did both. He was named both CFL West and CFL All-Star DE in 1987. The next year he took the same honours for OLB.

Re: Durant released by Montreal

It would make Kavis Reed look good if he can get Durant back at a reduced price. Otherwise his first big signing as GM will have been a complete bust. He didn't just trade for Durant, he gave him a new extended contract. Well he kind of had to give him a new extended contract since his old one was ...

Re: Pending Lions free agents

Any chance Lulay will "retire", take a coaching position with the Lions, and then "un-retire" once he is healthy enough to be on the active roster again? It would allow the Lions to sign a healthy back-up in the interim without wasting cap space or a roster spot on Lulay, who according to James Syb...

Re: Durant released by Montreal

It's entirely possible Durant still winds up in Montreal. The only way for the Als to get out from the roster bonus obligation was to either renegotiate and register a new deal before the bonus was due or release him which doesn't necessarily mean renegotiations aren't still continuing. After a week...
