Re: COVID-19 : How it could impact Lions/CFL

I know the premier of Alberta was on board with waiving the 14 day Quarantine period, unlike BC. But in my view, no way Edmonton will be selected a Hub City. The NHL is not going to play their major tournament in a small Canadian city. If any Canadian city is selected it will be Toronto. As for the...

Police in schools?

when did this start happening in BC. I never heard of such a thing in 60s and 70s. I think the first I became aware of such a thing was in 80s tv shows and movies about schools in cities such as NY, Boston, Chicago, LA, etc. Surely,I thought, it would never happen here.

Can you imagine

with all the statues being torn down and streets, schools, army bases, etc being renamed, I am so glad I can not yet find any hint of scandal regarding Captain Vancouver. Would we have to rename the city and all business and teams and such. Could be a nightmare.

Re: Canucks treat last week

During those playoffs my son was born near the end of the second round. We watched first the leafs win and then the canucks win back to back games and my wife was cheering for both teams and jumping up and down. For some reason her water broke. Then since some say everything come in 3s, the lions di...

Canucks treat last week

What a treat it was to watch all 5 of the 1994 Canucks/Leafs series on TSN

My favorite roster wearing my favorite version of the uniform.

I just have not found the Canucks as interesting since then. Specially since they switched to those boring Orca Bay based colors and uniforms.

Of course it's about the money. Maybe not ALL about money, but it's a big factor.
If money was so important, they wouldn't buy into the CFL in the first place.

Re: why is CFL interest so tepid in toronto?

Look, you've got a great product with tremendous history. It's a Canadian staple. Blaming immigration? That's an excuse. Immigrants want to do "Canadian stuff." The NHL is doing just fine, and last I checked there isn't a lot of hockey in China, India, Iran, etc. Difference is that there ...

Re: Favourite Lions Uniform

I like any version of the silver and black.

Flutie uniform is my fav, but that might have something to do with Flutie himself.

Re: 2020 U.S. Presidential Election Thread

President Putz continues to put his foot in his mouth.

It amazes me that so many still support and make excuses for him. Either that or downright denial of the facts.

why doesn't the CFL hard-core promote 7 on 7 football. even 5 on 5... take that to china/india etc. and do a reality show on it with good prizes (everyone can try out off tv)
I want nothing to do with china, and that has nothing to do with the virus.

Re: COVID-19 : How it could impact Lions/CFL

Agree that pro sports won't be missed if it goes. bite yer tongue just because there are way more important things and issues doesn't mean pro sports don't matter. I am missing NHL playoffs.

Re: COVID-19 : How it could impact Lions/CFL

I think they should all write off playing this year. NHL should try to take up exactly where they left off this yr next march. Finnish this years schedule and proceed to playoffs. The thing I am going to miss the most is upcoming NFL because I was really looking forward to what might be Brees last y...

My vote for the most "despicable" Lion (both players and coaches) would be La r ry Kuharich One 'r' for Lary Kuharich. clear cut for Joe Galat. If I was to pick the most "despicable" Lion it would be former owner, Murray Pezim. Friendly reminder as I stated in the OP. Please sti...

Re: Who are your Top 5 Despicable B.C. Lions Players?

non player. clear cut for Joe Galat.

If I could remember disliking 100 players, still would not add up to my downright anger at this guy
