Ambrosie was just on TSN 1040 with Donnie & the Moj (Rick Dhaliwal filling in). Good interview, not all softball questions. Ambrosie declined to comment directly about the Reilly contract issue.

Unrelated--there is a JJ Adams Vancouver Sun article that says the schedule will be released tomorrow. It's unintentionally funny, since now LeLacheur is using reasoning like the season being so far away, they can safely assume things will be okay by then BUT "we just don't know" (and not have CFL games end up being a scoreboard cancelled punchline like it was all this year.)

I agree that (given the appearance by Reilly) the Lions are probably working towards resolving the issue (without it going to arbitration).
Without knowing how US tax laws and years work or if Reilly pays everything under Canada but I'm thinking he would rather report that as 2020 income as opposed to adding it to his 2021 income.

Lelacheur on with Halford & Brough this morning. Great interview, they covered all the challenges facing the Lions (some of which Lelacheur did not really want to talk about.) It turns out that the Reilly arbitration hearing will likely be happening in January-February.

Thanks for posting BC 1988. The big news for me from this interview is that Ed Hervey won't be replaced by another GM. Rick Campbell and Neil McEvoy will jointly take over duties for the foreseeable future. No word about Geroy.

Geroy is listed below Neil McEvoy, Torey Hunter and Rob Ralph on the Lions’ football operations staff chart. Ralph has taken over Geroy’s previous role as CFL draft coordinator. Geroy’s primary role is now evaluating international players for the global draft. That seems like a demotion.
