Re: petition TSN to change all-time Lions team

i lived in winnipeg for a number of years....... don't want to comment publicly on this forum, but mentioning WM's name in winnipeg certainly generated some interesting responses. LOVED his father Al, the former bomber and redskins linebacker. the king of my condo hot-tub :) on lion's who made all-w...

Re: Speculation is over. No season in 2020.

petition TSN to change all-time Lions team

i was thinking we should petition TSN to change the all-time Lions team. there are 2 big omissions, although one is a little fuzzy 1) Korey Banks - 7-time all-west for Lions. Seven straight seasons....... the all-time Lions secondary has 1-time all-west and some of Banks teammates..... i have a hard...

Re: TSN all-time Lions team

i was not knocking jim evenson......... i am a huge lions fan and am surprised i'd never heard of him... some years before my time........... more like i was honoring him and pointing him out to others.... the all-time team selection seemingly is always going to be biased towards good teams and mult...

Re: TSN all-time Lions team

did a deep dive on BC Lions and players that have made all-western and all-CFL teams. THERE IS ONE GLARING OMISSION ON THE TEAM....... i would pretty much assume they forgot about him..................KOREY BANKS. he was all-western conference 7 straight years. so Korey Banks 7 straight all-western ...

Re: TSN all-time Lions team

there are some giant time gaps (or maybe one player) in the greatest lions team. the comment was made "winnipeg being perennial loser wasn't on milt"..... but it seems like the lions picks correlate with winning teams having said that, i don't have a specfic player in mind. one player from winning t...

Re: 2020 U.S. Presidential Election Thread

i went with trump/pence for 2 reasons: 1) i think it's important that there is a mentally-deranged person as leader of the free world.. especially important that said mentally-deranged person has 24 hour access to the nuclear button 2) i also think it's important that children everywhere can look up...

Re: Introduce yourselves

the more i think about "bow-mac, white spot, CKNW, dal richards etc." culture, the lions were a part of that. and that culture doesn't exist any more for a number of reasons. i would say it wouldn't exist if vancouver hadn't had all kinds of immigration. you could add "red robinson" and the hotel va...

Re: Introduce yourselves

i pondered quite awhile as to whether to include the "white spot/dal richards/CKNW/Bow-Mac/UBC/etc." vancouver family......... i am concerned that's some sort of deplorable code for "white family". having said that, it would be hard to analyze BC Lions demographics/marketing/attendance without looki...

Re: Speculation is over. No season in 2020.

as per rich MLB and spending 7 months away from family, i was thinking they don't have to do it. so a very top player will make $250MM from his career, not $350MM. it shouldn't matter. but i'm not sure that's how people think

Re: Speculation is over. No season in 2020.

CFL contracts don't seem very long in general............ naive question but does everyone's contract shorten by a year? or is like 2020 never happened? for players who don't opt out...... i think reilly was 3 year contract. fulfilled two of the years and i think passed some deadline to partially gu...

Re: Speculation is over. No season in 2020.

bubble = no home field advantage. does anyone remember how loud BC Place was in 1982/1983 during the playoffs?. my ears hurt during the game. i remember hufnagel (and zorn?) at QB for winnipeg. couldn't get the snap counts coordinated at all.......... is seattle that loud? i'd need data that it's lo...
