Re: Shutdown of XFL Could Be Permanent

In-game player/coach interviews? Not a fan. I prefer how TSN does it now by getting player/coach thoughts at half-time and not bugging them during the game. They used to interview players during a game a long time ago, usually after they've scored or made a big play, both on TV and radio/CKNW. I th...

Re: Sammy Greene

I was watching the final regular season game of 1983 on YouTube (it was against the Ottawa Rough Riders, not the Roughriders): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XqUc_ybyIrc and they mentioned Sammy Greene no longer being with the team a couple of times. Curiosity led me here :-D . The original link to...

Re: Toronto at B.C. Oct. 5, 2019 - Game Day Thread

Burnham had his toe out on his almost-a-TD tonight (Oct 18 vs SSK), but it's affirmation that the guy can catch it with one hand. They made the correct call above.

Re: Toronto at B.C. Oct. 5, 2019 - Game Day Thread

That wasn't a TD, awesome catch but not a TD The guys on TSN TV agreed with you and it would be true if you believe that Burnham didn't gain control until he curled his arm and secured the ball to his chest. However I believe he made a one handed catch at which point his foot was in bounds. The Com...

Re: Dollarama has a few Lions flags....

In case anyone is still interested ... :). Saw a flag on a stick, and there's also just a regular flag at the Seymour Dollarama. Same price of $2.50. There's about 10 of the regular flags, and maybe 6 of the stick ones. The stick ones are something like 18" x 12". http://imageshack.us/a/img842/952/g...

Re: Anyone record the Grey Cup 2011 game?

Thanks. I wondered about TSN or the CFL selling a digital download. While I understand there's probably not a huge demand for a DVD/BD, a digital download would cost them next to nothing to offer. Regarding the PVR, it may have to be re-recorded to another external device, via composite cables. My f...

Re: Impressive Grey Cup TV ratings

I'm all for the playoff games being broadcast on CTV. They can do all pregam...

Anyone record the Grey Cup 2011 game?

Okay, dudes, I need your help.

My DVR decided to stop recording near the end of half-time, and I didn't notice until there was about five minutes in the game. I'm hoping someone can help me out with a recording of the game or of the second half.

Thanks.

Re: As good as 2006?

My choice is the 2006 team. Their defence was incredible. A brief stat comparison: 2006: 13-5, Points for: 555, Points against: 355 2011: 11-7, Points for: 511, Points against: 385 Maybe I'm remembering incorrectly, but I have the impression that the 2006 team were considered heads and shoulders abo...

Re: Who remembers...

Here are the Super Valu NHL pictures (they're neither stamps, nor stickers) that were distributed back in 1974-75(?), which you guys were talking about a couple of years ago on this thread :). I'm not sure exactly what year they were from, but Henri Richard is included, and I think it was the year W...

Lions kid's socks at Dollarama

The downtown Dollarama (Seymour, between Georgia/Dunsmuir) has a 3-pack of kids socks for $2.00. Fits *shoe* sizes of around 2-5. They're white, with a Lions logo, and an orange and black stripe. They're probably a one-off, so hurry if you want them. I would roughly estimate that they had 48 packs o...

Braley was also the guy who said "Pardon me?", like he didn't want to see Printers in a Lions uniform again, when asked on a 1040 interview about Printers coming back.

Re: Time to give Printers his due

Full credit to Printers for his excellent game. I would like to see him take off and run when the defensive backs are dropping off to cover. There were several instances where he could have easily run for first downs. This gives the defence more to worry about. Agreed. Printers isn't running as muc...
