Re: 2021 CFL free agency

Not sure it was all good but Jennings and Campbell were together in 2019 and believe he made it through the season. Just saying.

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

Would be a nice story if the Lions were to bring Jon Jennings to camp. Still only 28 and brings increased mobility to the team. Possible good short yardage guy. Blame Ed Hervey for his fall from grace and see what happens. Taylor Loffler is another scary name who never did disappoint on the field un...

Re: PAID MY DUES TIME AFTER TIME - LEOS NEW 2021 OFFENCE

That's another good post. To call it thorough is an understatement. Nicely themed acts. Thank you for taking the time and sharing your insight and knowledge. Many watch the game although not everyone sees the plays. Good luck to Jordan Macsymic. His time with Jason Maas will serve him well. It all c...

Re: Braley Wants to Sell Lions

Unless the estate is willing to dump the team at a fire sale price a fraction of $10M I doubt there will be anything new to report until the CFL has the green light to start playing with fans in the stands. Realistically why would anybody want to buy the Lions or any other CFL team for that matter ...

Re: Braley Wants to Sell Lions

Anything new given the developments?

Curious if a $10 million offer would be considered.

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

True Dat what you say. And yet we all know the game that the CFL can be.

Curious how it is going to work with the new single game betting legislation. I notice the LeoVegas advertising up on the cfl.ca website. Sky is the limit once that kicks in I would guess.

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

NFL television rights are being discussed and up for renewal in 2022. Rights to Monday night alone expected to increase from the current $2 billion. 4 different packages all over $1 billion. TSN has a very inexpensive source of programing with the CFL. 180 games deserves far more than $50 million Ca...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

I see (Matt Baker no doubt) has created a handy 'free agency' page, to scroll through signings/articles at a glance, on the Lions' website. https://www.bclions.com/2021-free-agency-central/ Side note; see that Adam Bighill has re-signed in the Peg for a rumored (Farhan Lalji) 115k. Huge adjustment!...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

Elimimian was reported at $165,000 with Sask last year. Duh. If the Lions wanted to sell some tickets it's a move that the fans would love imo. One last year. Plus it would hurt Sask who are putting a strong team together. Why gift them such a good player? Maybe just a coincidence that Andrew Harris...

Re: Ed Hervey leaves Lions for "personal reasons"

Hey groooooovy Lionbacker colleagues. I believe Ed Hervey was fired from our B.C. Lions and he was allowed to say he was leaving for personal reasons. Hervey could have asked for a leave for personal reasons. It would be rare for anyone to give up a well paying and rare job during a pandemic and in...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

Typical of what happens when player personnel guys move around. Rigmaiden was likely the guy that brought Sayles to Winnipeg along with Anthony Gaitor and Craig Roh. Now that he has switched teams the players follow. Sayles was an important part of a weak Winnipeg secondary. For every action there i...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

Per sources, his new deal in Edmonton will see the 29-year-old earn $180,000 in 2021. The contract is structured to include a $98,000 base salary, a $12,000 housing bonus, and a $70,000 roster bonus that will be paid when he takes his first snap in the regular season. That helps explain why Greg El...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

I could see Calgary going after Micah Johnson in what would be a seamless fit. Might have to hire the mother in law as a receptionist. For Edmonton, the potential downfall of signing Derel Walker could mean less money for Almondo Sewell or Mike Moore. Sewell likely won't be any less expensive than J...

Re: TSN all-time Lions team

Came across this juicy bit of trivia this morning. Heard jim Barker talking recently about how there were only ever 50 of the XFL rings made. Didn't want to start a separate thread. Guard BOBBY SINGH is the only player to win professional football's version of the Triple Crown. Singh won a Super Bow...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

Better save some room for Greg Ellingson. Has the required Edm / Ott history.

Walker signing will set a bench mark for receivers. Would be curious to know the number. One year deal again.
