Re: petition TSN to change all-time Lions team

Bottom line these sorts of lists are intended to generate discussion. You can be guaranteed none of fan bases of the 9 teams would proclaim TSN nailed it on their club. Every fan base will be talking about players they felt deserved to be on the list and those who they think didn't deserve to be.

Re: Speculation is over. No season in 2020.

Off topic but probably as good of a person to ask as any. Is there a better burger anywhere in the interior than Herbies in Cache Creek? Curiosity took me to the end of the road in Kitimat last summer and the Herbie was probably my top rated burger of the entire trip. Always nice to find the hidden...

Re: Speculation is over. No season in 2020.

So they didn't get the $150,000 from the government, now they go after the fan to cough up $400 a shot to have their name etched onto something that is probably not the actual Grey Cup. I think the chances of success with the program are about the same. I am amazed by the lack of good ideas the Lea...

Re: petition TSN to change all-time Lions team

on Korey Banks, i worry somehow that my facts are wrong........ but i've checked/re-checked many times. On January 31, 2014, Banks was traded to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in exchange for non-import wide receiver Kito Poblah.[4] On February 19, 2014, the Bombers signed Banks to a contract extension ...

Re: Speculation is over. No season in 2020.

good discussions, thanks :) as per "working away from family for many months being common", that is almost always voluntary. and usually the motivation is make much more money than you could locally (oil workers, whether oil sands or foreign. i know a guy who works half the year in indonesia. comes...

Re: Speculation is over. No season in 2020.

honestly, is there going to be a 2021 season?........ big money sports will have 2021 seasons but will they look that different from now. AND will players want to bubble for 7 months? seems unlikely i think we are minimum 3 years from 95% normalcy.... but 2 years away from 85% normalcy Valid questi...

Re: Speculation is over. No season in 2020.

Any rumblings yet on CFL players who might opt out of their contracts when that door opens on Monday?

Marty York tweeting that it's a go. Speculated on a Tuesday announcement.
What's a go or is that a facetious shot at Marty's penchant for being wrong?

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

The situation for the NCAA is extremely complicated. Football gets all the press but they also have several other sports running concurrently. In the fall, in addition to football, they also run men's and women's soccer, women's volleyball and field hockey and men's and women's cross-country. And of...

Re: If No Season will the CFL fold

Not sure how to take the MLSE news and look forward to learning more details. I see this morning on 3DN that Dale Lastman, son of former Toronto mayor Mel Lastman, and member of MLSE board of directors is also Chairman of the CFL board of Directors. Would be too good to be true to think he is a vol...

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

Good trivia Hambone. Few would have known that one. Relieved to hear the WE deal was just an innocent mix up. Curious about that jet black hair though. Not many original thoughts from the rectangular province. Their colours came from a surplus store in Chicago. They grabbed their nickname when the ...

The XFL’s assets are all up for sale, including the league and team names, uniforms and equipment. There are odds on several potential buyers, including the CFL at +1,000. https://www.google.ca/amp/s/sportsbetting.legal/news/xfl-sale-betting-odds/amp/ Maybe the Rider can get some new colours again....
