Re: first place, good or bad?

No brainier. Go for first. Sometimes if u have finished 3rd just getting to the Western Final feels like a success. That can lead to complacency and an "oh well" attitude for the western final. You forget what it took to get this stage. Once you finish 1st u get the bye, but you also have the motiva...

Re: Alouettes @ Lions Game Day Thread 20111105

I'm just hoping for a big crowd to send the boys into the playoffs. It is possible that this could be the last time the boys play in front off the home fans until Grey Cup if they don't win. The energy in the building will play an important role tonight in determining the outcome. Football has to be...

Re: Geroy right or wrong?

Be careful what you wish for...

One other highly touted QB coming to Canada comes to mind. Sorry Als fans but it has to be said.... Vince Farragamo. He didn't exactly save the franchise in Momtreal and I would be worried that a rush decision by the Argos could bring about similar results.

Re: LION82's final game tonight

Lion82 was and has been my favorite Lion since his arrival to the west coast. I truly believe the Lions lost a little something when he left. It really was unfortunate that he wasn't played often in Saskatchewan and never really given a real role out there. Lion82 always was and is what I think of a...

What does messam do? cornish is a better, wiser blocking back. ...

Re: Still no Grey Cup Tickets

I've contacted the lions office trying to get those transit passes but the people I've spoken to don't seem to know how to order them. Hope I haven't missed the boat on them.

Re: Calling Armchair coaches

In the end we finished second. We were in the game until one of our receivers didn't cover the ball properly and was stripped of the ball which the opposition ran back for a TD. We ended up losing 18-6. the first half ended with us only down by 12. Which wasn't bad considering the early morning wake...

Re: Calling Armchair coaches

I haven't actually had much of a hand in the offence as i have left that to the head coach. I have focused on Defence. I have a real good Nose tackle. As such I have been basing my defence on a 3-4. I keep my DE's lined up outside of the tackles and force them to have containment at QB depth. My NT ...

Re: Calling Armchair coaches

time for another update as the season draws to a close. We played our semi-final play off game on Wednesday. We took control early with some great plays by our offence and before we knew it we were up 24-6 at the half. However, just before halftime is when the opposition scored its touchdown on us. ...

Re: Stadium Journey BC Place

there was free popcorn at the second game in BC Place? I believe I paid for mine. But I really wanted the jumbo tub with the Lions logo on it. Yes Popcorn is my weakness.... sue me.

Re: Calling Armchair coaches

Well here's an update on the season so far with only 1 game remaining (this Saturday). I've gone quite abit this year with the 3-4-2 namely because my NT has been getting a lot of push off the centre and I have some speedy LB's. i have my OLB's lining up outside the DE's and two fairly strong ILB's ...

Re: Roof debate - open or closed?

I still like the dome and the indoor feel but always have and know that David and I are at "polar" opposites on this issue. As such, keep it closed. But as I am coming down for this game, I would like to see the roof in action... :wink: so maybe open it for a bit and then close it. LOL One thing I w...

Not a single Team hospitality suite is listed on there, including the Lions own Lions Den. Touchdown Manitoba not listed, Rendezvous Regina missing, no word on the grand daddy of ...

Re: Where Do We Go From Here?

At the start of the year, I thought Calgary had by far the best receiving corps in the league, but B.C.'s receivers have produced almost the same number of yards and touchdowns as Calgary's through the first 9 games, despite having a less experienced quarterback. Right now I wouldn't trade B.C.'s r...

Re: End Of An Empire - close to a sellout

So looks like the Lions will have managed close to 2 sellouts in the "cozy" confines of outdoor football if this holds up. I really think someone in the Lions front office and high up needs to look at this and say "what went wrong?". When it was initially discussed about moving to Empire it was anti...
