Re: 2021 CFL draft

grunching... good discussion. i don't think there's any way that Hubbard or Holland ever step foot in the CFL...... i am generally in favor though of drafting marginal NFL prospects. did Rysen John stick with the Giants? i think he did, but not sure. if we go heavy on canadians on defense, and we ha...

Re: 3DownNation says 2021 Season May Not Happen

did Bob Young really offer to bankroll the entire CFL losses last year?... why didn't they take him up on it? why would he do that?... would they have had to pay him that money back over time? i saw reference to someone saying that maybe the CFL should just have one league-wide owner. for some reaso...

Re: Lions in the local media (REVIVED thread 6-10-20)

terrible to mediocre ratings is arguably ok if your content is cheap. I didn't think TSN1040 had good content...... and their name guys were making good money, I'd think ($150K+ would be my guess).... why not just do local sports content with recent BCIT grads? work cheap, more knowlegible and the T...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

this is complete thinking out loud, but Seahawks (and Jets before that) did incredibly well blitzing Jamal Adams from safety spot (not sure if JA is strong or free safety. I'd think strong safety). I would think many more teams will look to do this, although I know that JA is a unique talent. wonder...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

I was thinking NFL vs. CFL........ seems like in CFL that the QB/coach is even more important than NFL... 3 down vs. 4 down. one similarity in the leagues: I think pass rush is by far #2 think after QB/coach passing... and I think DLine is more important than OLine. of course, OLine is heavily Canad...

Re: Lions in the local media (REVIVED thread 6-10-20)

what happened to CKNW? in the 80's and before, it was a powerhouse station.

now it just seems to be another station..................... self-inflicted or times changed?... I'm thinking more "times change"

Re: Lions in the local media (REVIVED thread 6-10-20)

Bob McCown was a brilliant radio show.. I know it from national feed. but I also lived in Toronto a long time... pat Marsden and gord stellick were really good too. but again, they had substance. very knowledgable guys.

Re: Lions in the local media (REVIVED thread 6-10-20)

I have to agree on many of the comments regarding 1040... they talked Canucks almost all the time. and they were into 4th line type trivial matters. or Jake Virtanen 24/7. and if not Canucks, they talked non-sports. if they talked NFL it was often with mediocre knowledge (my knowledge is not even me...

Re: Comparison of player costs NFL to CFL

great comments by everyone. probably need some sort of revenue-share sooner rather than later. CFL football is a huge deal in saskatchewan. kinda like "University of State" NCAA football in the USA. and it's a big deal some other places too.............. ironic and obvious comment is that ...

Re: Comparison of player costs NFL to CFL

interesting subject and I saw an inflammatory article in last few days saying CFL players are getting screwed. certainly, a lot of moving parts............. not sure a small league should have player costs remotely close to a big league as % of revenue................. basic non-discretionary costs ...
