Re: CFL Games of Week 9, August 17 - 19

I went 3-1 this week by picking underdogs in all four games. The Lions were the only team that failed to pull an upset, and the game was there to be won.

Re: Calgary 21 - BC 17, Post-game Stats and Comments

Good read, Blitz. I tend not to be as hard on Wally as you but there's always lots of criticism to go around after a loss. I'd like to clarify the timing of the release and re-signing of Shaq Murray-Lawrence. He had a good opening week of training camp and looked like the player many people had expe...

Re: Calgary 21 - BC 17, Post-game Stats and Comments

The Stampeders were sloppy and beatable tonight and Mitchell completed less than 50% of his passes, but the Lions failed to take advantage. It was a missed opportunity to make a statement to the league and stay with the elite teams in the West. At the start of the game thread, I posted my three keys...

Re: Question about a Rule

Yes. I think it only applies to the last 3 minutes of a game. Otherwise teams can still opt to scrimmage at the 35 after a field goal.

The Lions confirm that the new CFL diversity shirts will be on sale at the game tonight. https://twitter.com/BCLions/status/898679229604175872 I don't see where it says anywhere that they will be on sale at the game. Then again, I am not at all use to twitter They are on sale but seem to be in limi...

Lions vs. Stamps Aug. 18, 2017

After putting up a stinker in Regina and holding a players-only meeting to discuss their lack of effort, the pressure is on the Lions to bounce back at home against the always-tough Stampeders. There is some history on the Lions' side. According to the CFL's weekly Game Notes, the Lions are 8-1 when...

Re: Riders 41 - Lions 8, Post-Game Stats and Comments

I've a naive question about the make-up/personnel of the special teams: Other than the obvious components for each, i.e. Rainey & Iannuzzi on returns and Long & Benson on kicks, is the 'general herd' (my term) made up of the same fellows thundering downfield either way? I've always assumed so. Just...

Re: Riders 41 - Lions 8, Post-Game Stats and Comments

've a truckload of bad language seething in my brain these days regards Marcello Simmons. Rightly or wrongly I've concluded he's in over his head. It's a bloody crime to see this wastefulness. This squandered talent game after game. It's shocking. And it's not only wasting Rainey's talent, it's was...

Re: CFL Games of Week 9, August 17 - 19

If I could get long odds on a four-team parlay, I'd be tempted to pick against the writers in every game this week. Edmonton is due for a loss and is playing on the road against a Winnipeg team that is finding ways to win close games. Ottawa has too much talent to lose another close game and Hamilto...

Re: Lions cuts

A pair of ex-Lions have been added to the Alouettes' practice roster. They could both help the Ticats, who are desperately short of nationals, but I hope they find playing time somewhere in the league. Montreal, August 16, 2017 – The Montreal Alouettes announced on Wednesday that they have added th...
