Topic: Good and Bad Historical BC Lions Draft Picks

I wouldn't classify Meier or Beckles as poor picks. When I think of "poor draft picks" I think of guys who failed to live up to the expectations of their selection position. If anything both exceeded those expectations as both managed to fashion nice NFL careers. There's always a risk when drafting ...

I can't say as I really have one. It's not that I'm one of those fans who despises anyone not wearing Lion orange. On the contrary I have a lot of respect for everyone playing in the CFL. Aside from Pinball from the management side of things there's no player I can say stands out above the rest as a...

Quote from Wally this morning: "I think he understands now when the ball's kicked deep, you take a knee," said Lions head coach Wally Buono. "When the ball's kicked short, you maybe give it a go. You have young players, you've got to be patient with them. Obviously he feels bad about that but, fortu...

Probably Myers' biggest mistake was running the one back in exhibition. When you're a rookie getting your first touch on the ball in regular season your eyes are going to over-rule your head. With his exhibition success he probably had the far endzone in his sights. He likely had instructions to giv...

Quickly calculating the paid attendance at a conservative $25 per ticket, you end up with the $3.7M area, add in luxury box's, corporate sponsership and the TV revenue, it should still provide a loss, but I don't get the $2M. Now if they can increase that substantially, Ottawa can also turn a profi...

It's pretty tough to paper the house and not have anyone know about it, so the feeling is they were lying. I disagree. They did it here, and very recently too. I'd say there was even a more desparate reason to do so in Ottawa. As for the 5 thousand total, who knows. It's clear though that they can'...

I'm not thrilled about having them back also but what is the alternative ? The question I have is what is it about the CFL that attracts the Gliebermans? Can't be the money that they are going to lose this season in addition to the $2M they invested. A conservative number was pegged at $3 - 4M. I'd...

Well Heasman made it clear that he wanted to remain in his off season location of Calgary which seems to have hurt Wally's hand in the trade, although he hasn't just picked up a Calgary spot. Perhaps Calgary isn't interested in him, although even at a depth spot, I cannot fathom why not, as he play...

1) I don't own any ties now. 2) If I did I don't know how to tie one up. 3) Ties kinda look stupid at work when your normal office attire is a t-shirt, blue jeans and sneakers......unless you want to dress up and wear a golf shirt. Actually I lied in the statement 1) above. I do own one. It's been s...

Interesting to see the poll stats that at the time I submitted showed not surprisingly that the 80s followed by the 60s are the top two. In their 51 years of existance the Leos have really only had two "Glory Days" periods, those being the early 60s and mid 80s. I don't even know why I became a spor...
