Re: 2019-20 Vancouver Canucks/NHL Season Thread

I try not to watch them because I am convinced I am a jinx and so far that seems to be helping. Haha, I'm in the exact same situation.... I do not want to watch or listen and I avoid any knowledge of the game as when I have watched or listen to their games, they have sank like a stone. I'll catch t...

Re: 2019-20 Vancouver Canucks/NHL Season Thread

While I do not follow hockey or the Canucks, I do wish them well in the playoffs. No matter if it is Football, Hockey, Baseball or Soccer, the playoffs or whatever the road to a championship takes becomes a fun time of the year with an increased jump among sports fans. And often in hockey, the harde...

Re: About the Whitecaps

Not really. It was a surprise that they got into the knockout round. The team did not have the full complement of offensive players attending and it showed.

Re: Simulated CFL Games

I watched one of the earlier virtual games and it seemed like BC was still using Jackson's offence even though the player names are updated. Predictable, with lots of short pass attempts for little yardage. It makes sense that the programming would be based on last years schemes, but I lost interest...

I'm a big fan of the cat's paw logo and wish there was more gear with that logo available these days.

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

I am MUCH more hopeful for CFL football in 2021 than I am in 2020. I think that most of us that have bought 2020 season tickets (or game packs) will want their tickets to move over to the 2021 season. That will provide a base for the team to operate next year, assuming that there are some helpful do...

Re: Lulay leaves front office

I thought that Travis was brilliant on the radio during the pre and post game broadcasts. My first reaction is that he will certainly be missed on the broadcasts...... and then realized that its unlikely that there will be any broadcasts.... bummed out for both.

Re: 2020 CFL draft

I expect that Rick Campbell had a lot to do with BC's desire to get Williams. He would have been involved assessing him at the camps and in offering a PR spot.

Essentially, we switched picks with Calgary as I expected we would have picked the same player in #3 spot that Calgary did.

Re: Shutdown of XFL Could Be Permanent

If permanent, it will be interesting to see what happens to the coaching staff, some of which left the CFL for the greener grass of XFL. If the NFL does start in the Fall, I wonder if a few XFL coaches will be hired into that league. The CFL spots are already filled. If there's any NFL vacancies at...

Re: BC Lions Free Agent Rumours & Signings

IIRC, one of the reasons that Walker had chemistry with Reilly was that Duke Williams was also part of the receiving core. It likely caused coverage concerns which may have resulted in Walker being isolated one-on-one as the safety had to slide over to cover Duke. I see the same potential happening ...

Re: Teams Can Start making Offers to Free agents.

Presumably a player's agent can use this 7 day period to canvas other teams to figure out the interest level for player. I wonder if this will lead to more extensions near the start of "official" free agency than in years past.
