Re: I'm taking time off from the site -- WestCoastJoe

Where did Blitz go. Between him and WCJ that's a lot of contributions off the board and it's far less fun without them. The football knowledge component is significantly reduced here as a result of these guys not posting. Fortunately there is still good football knowledge here versus rants and craz...

Re: I'm taking time off from the site -- WestCoastJoe

They say the hardest part of leaving is..........leaving. Do yourself a favour and cold turkey it. You will rejuvenate and come back stronger. Site needs good hard analysis. You contribute that. So start the process. Cheers Oh yes. Agreed. As stated in the post, it is cold turkey. The comments in t...

Re: I'm taking time off from the site -- WestCoastJoe

Very sorry to learn about this West Coast Joe. Your keen football insights have been an integral part of this site. I don't know if people recognize all of the efforts you put into your posts, from finding links and screen grabs to breaking down line play to detailed post-game analyses. Unfortunate...

Re: I'm taking time off from the site -- WestCoastJoe

You are a valuable and respected contributor to this site WCJ. I hope you are back soon. I enjoy your posts. Ditto for me. You've always been a positive, helpful contributor to this site and your understanding of the game is superb. You've also been supportive of those attacked by the overly person...

Re: I'm taking time off from the site -- WestCoastJoe

Joe I have a suggestion for you. Why don't you just post occasionally after Lions football games or after big news like a firing or major player cut or traded? Posting once a week probably will give you the time away you need and still give you a bit of a football fix. I have a feeling the rest of ...

Take care, Joe, and thanks for all your contributions to the site over the years. I hope you can come back refreshed when the time is right, and I hope there's some good football to talk about or at least some good discussions to be had. I echo B.C. Fan's comments. You have been a key contributor a...

Re: I'm taking time off from the site -- WestCoastJoe

http://www.lionbackers.com/bc_lions/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=27274 I found the thread where WCJ left in 2013. (My first post is on page 3 of the thread). Maybe history will repeat itself? I for one, am grateful he decided to return back then (but no pressure!!). Thanks, BC 1988. No pressure. Ha ha Much ...

Re: I'm taking time off from the site -- WestCoastJoe

To steal a line from the kid talking to "Shoeless" Joe Jackson during the Black Sox Scandal "Say it ain't so Joe!". I'll miss your contributions. I may not have always agreed but absolutely always respected the passion and thought put into them. I respect that a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do...

Re: I'm taking time off from the site -- WestCoastJoe

Thanks, Guys.

The comments and sentiments are much appreciated. Everything is fine. Normal life stuff.

At times one has to narrow the focus. There are priorities.

Thank you, Guys. Your posts mean a great deal to me. I am fine, liberated in fact. All the best. That is a good one, Dano. Ha ha. It has value. I did a quick search.

I'm taking time off from the site -- WestCoastJoe

Lionbackers, I've got some family stuff I am dealing with, including some with health issues, although my own health is fine. And I am not dealing with conflict well, or willingly, at this time. I am no spring chicken either. Although I am retired from the work force, I spend a lot of time on extend...

Re: Riders 45 - Lions 18 -- Post Game Comments

7 games in. This one must have been the worst. And not really unexpected. We are last in points for in the West. We are last in points against in the league (uneven schedule of course). Lankford had two amazing returns. He is a bona fide burner. We had 0 sacks, and gave up 4 sacks. Reilly was hit a ...
