Re: Randy Ambrosie optimistic about 2021

Thanks for posting that BC 1988. Love listening to Dave. He is "must listen" radio. Bright, articulate, and always speaks the truth. Not afraid to wade into controversial topics either. When asked which CFL rules he'd keep/ditch, he wasn't about to get into 3 downs and the ratio (but I inf...

Re: Rick Klassen Highlights

Awesome. Thank you!! I really miss the days of having so many of our Non-Imports from our own back yard. Gave me an extra reason to cheer.

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

Edmonton has signed former B.C. DE Mat Boesen, who started the first five games of 2019 and led all B.C. defensive linemen in tackles before suffering a knee injury and spending most of the season on the 6-game injured list. Would like to have kept him as he showed good hustle as a rookie as we're ...

Re: Randy Ambrosie optimistic about 2021

One advantage of having an older fan base is they're more likely to have been vaccinated when the season starts. Whether they are comfortable spending 3+ hours at a sporting event compared to younger fans remains to be seen.

Re: Throwback Thursday

I have the 1971 Classic from Empire recorded. It has the entire pre-game and commercials. I don't believe the 4th quarter exists from this game. I think it got destroyed. In its place is a narrated highlight piece (that of course, shows the infamous Leon McQuay fumble). I was able to send a copy to...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

This is a tough one as I always liked Rutley. I appreciated his tough, bruising running style and ability to run back kicks just like Monroe Eley did for us years ago. I think we're fairly set at the RB position. We have Shaq Cooper and young Reggie Corbin from Illinois whose tape looks impressive a...

Re: Braley Wants to Sell Lions

In most cases, I would agree with you maxlion. However, Braley's family knows how much the club meant to David. I don't think they want to sell for $1 just to get rid of a depreciating asset. The money set aside (and I'm hearing it should see them through 2-3 years of operation) is to find the right...

Re: Randy Ambrosie optimistic about 2021

It's February 25, certainly no reason to push the panic button (yet). But we're being fed seemingly empty and optimistic promises by Trudeau and Ambrosie on vaccine distribution and the possibility of a 2021 season respectively, yet every morning I wake up and very little seems to be changing. Accor...

Yea, it will be like playing the Habs of the 70's. :rotf:

Homegrown talent. Not a bad strategy for the Als I suppose.

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

Mildly worried about our depth now with both Foucault and Boyko gone (say what you want about their contracts relative to their play, but that's quite a lot of experience we're losing). I imagine the starting 5 L-R will be: J-Fig, Steward, Godber, Chungh, and Mathews. We still have Knevel who can pl...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

Campbell (& Desjardins) brought in and handed playing time to, a whole slew of young import D-linemen the past couple of seasons in Ottawa; not many panned out good to even decent IMO - Tavai was amongst the best of them, but he is a DE. Different scouts though. We have Ryan Rigmaiden and his l...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

Team are going to run 150yds a game on us, given the NTs that are left. I think you're assuming that there are zero US FA recruits at the interior of the line which I don't believe is the case. I am hearing the club is high on a couple of DTs (Kamalu, Neal) with NFL experience. Would I feel better ...

It's the runaway leader in this market with a 14.8 rating (the next highest is CBC-am with a 10.8 rating. SOURCE: Numeris ratings book Aug. 3...

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

To be brutally honest, much of the on-air roster at 650 is weak compared to what 1040 had. This I agree with. Also, if Bell really gave a crap they would make the hard changes, perhaps forcing higher-priced talent into retirement, raising advertising fees, or airing more hours of low-cost syndicati...
