Re: 2020-21 NFL/Seattle Seahawks Season Thread

The Seahawks came out of Sunday's game with some new injuries. Jamal Adams (who's played great) has a groin strain, and Chris Carson suffered a knee strain from the dirty hit he took in the game. Pete Carroll has said that neither of these injuries are really serious--meaning long-term--but could ke...

Re: 2020-21 NFL/Seattle Seahawks Season Thread

Seahawks defence has been cursed with injuries since the Legion of Boom was disbanded and just two games into the season, both linebacker Bruce Irvin and safety Marquise Blair both suffered ACL injuries and are expected to miss the rest of the 2020 NFL season. :bang: Yes, that's too bad. The loss o...

Re: 2020-21 NFL/Seattle Seahawks Season Thread

It was nice for the Seahawks to get the win at home, and for another superb game by Russell Wilson, but defensively, they weren't very good; Patriots rack up 464 yards of offence tonight. Again, absolutely no pass rush. If they don't fix that part of their game, they won't have a successful season. ...

Re: 2020-21 NFL/Seattle Seahawks Season Thread

Yes, a nice start for the Seahawks today. The offence looked very solid, and Russell Wilson had a career day with four TD throws, no interceptions, 322 total passing yards, and a QB rating of 143.1. It will be interesting when Phillip Dorsett is back and when Josh Gordon comes off suspension. At tha...

Shutdown of XFL Could Be Permanent

At the time of cancelling the rest of the 2020 season on March 12, the XFL stated that they would be back in 2021. Today's news suggests that this is now unlikely and that the XFL is now gone permanently. https://www.fieldgulls.com/2020/4/10/21216590/xfl-lays-off-employees-suspends-operations-covid-...

Re: COVID-19 : How it could impact Lions/CFL

I think many couples are struggling with newly discovered issues: feelings of confinement and lack of boundaries, disruption to routine, division of labour issues, and of course the inherent stressors and anxiety of losing one's job, the unknowns of the virus etc. DH :cool: ...and all that can lead...

If the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo proceeds as schedule, Canada will not send a Canadian Olympic team. That's devastating for all the Canadian hopefuls wanting to win an Olympic medal. :-? :bawl:
The IOC has confirmed that the 2020 Summer Olympics will be "postponed" to 2021.

Re: COVID-19 : How it could impact Lions/CFL

not 20/20 hindsight with me. Trying to save economy up front has now led to bigger hit on economy anyhow. They needed to have the balls to be properly proactive on this, even if ignorance caused many to *beeotch* about it. That other countries like USA are worse does not matter. That's their proble...

Re: COVID-19 : How it could impact Lions/CFL

I am really pissed off at the various levels of Govt that have responded too little way too late. When I first heard of this virus going outside China, I was wishing that the feds would have immediately closed all borders and airports and ports to non residents. As for residents, everyone should ha...

Re: COVID-19 : How it could impact Lions/CFL

I wonder what happens to player and coach contracts under the present state of affairs. What of the guys signed for 2020 already? And I guess the television contract with the CFL goes away too or perhaps is pro-rated for the length of the season, assuming that there will be one (which looks less an...

Re: COVID-19 : How it could impact Lions/CFL

Peoples behaviours and attitudes towards large events may be forever altered or a least will be for some length of time. I could easily see some anxiety around the idea that it might only take one late to the party infected person to start the whole process over again. At this point it is going to ...

Re: 2019-20 NFL Season Thread

Consensus on SF was that they went off their strengths and bailed on their game plan and did so unwisely leaving the door open to the big Chiefs comeback. Yes, in the 4th quarter, they went away from their ground game that had been doing so well earlier in the game for a series of bad pass plays. P...
