Re: Can Ed Hervey Turn Lions Around This Season

I like to ask the 3 people who feel Ed Hervey will be given a new contract to fix his mess why you feel he will get one? If Lions finish say with 2, 3 or 4 wins, why do you think he will be rewarded and given a new contract.? Will they trust Wally Buono's faith that Ed Hervey is the right man. I pe...

Re: Can Ed Hervey Turn Lions Around This Season

Where to start? What needs to change? How to fix this mess? I expect Ed Hervey to change some personnel. I think that will be mostly window dressing. Not much effect. Coaching change? That would be radical surgery. Defence? The players have not been able to make Stubler's defence work. Expect some c...

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

That's offside, Pauser. We can respectfully have differences of opinion on this board without instigating with inflammatory comments like "you're wrong." Instigating? First of all, when did telling someone that they’re wrong, when they’re wrong, become offside? Secondly, I didn’t instigate anything...

Re: OH Reilly...sigh

I think we all have the greatest respect for Mike Reilly. No one pays the price like Mike Reilly. He stands in there, taking the hits, trying to win games. I respect his sharing the mental health issue he has made public. That will be beneficial to so many others, in various careers, unwilling to sh...

That’s fine. It’s hard to comment when you’re wrong. I get it. That's offside, Pauser.

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

When a coach makes a decision to pull a player, run a certain play or kick rather than gamble in short yardage, players are not to undermine that decision. Quarterbacks get pulled, as do pitchers in baseball, goalies in hockey and position players in all sports. A player who disrespects a coach's a...

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

Yes, I think he undermined his Head Coach by not wanting to come out of the game. Was that selfish? Was it good for the team? Did it not put his health at risk? Did it prevent any opportunity for the backup to get needed game reps? You call a player not wanting to come out of the game "undermining ...

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

I have no problem with anyone faulting Reilly's play of late. It is assuming that his motives are all selfish that I take issue with. Character assignation if you will. There is nothing he has said or done that gives any credence to such assumptions. My Gawd. I should have left Saint Michael alone....

Re: Games of Week 8, August 1 - 3, 2019

WPG @ TOR. Winnipeg. HAM @ SSK. Regina. OTT @ MTL. Montreal. EDM @ CGY. Hmmm. Tossup for me. Don't like either team, as Western rivals forever. Take Edmonton on a coin toss. BC Lions have done an exceptional job of making the Riders look like a very strong team so I am thinking that the TiCats, eve...

Re: Riders - Lions -- Post Game Comments

This team is a tire fire. More and more, I think Reilly deserves a large share of responsibility. He undermined his HC. He only wants to throw long. He wants to show how tough he is. He wants 5,000 yards passing. He has allowed himself to get mixed up, to the detriment of the team. IMO. O'Brien get...
