Re: 2017 All Things Lions Marketing & Promotions

Back in 1995 they had kids priced season tickets. Kids season tickets were $1/game with the purchase of an adult season ticket. I agree with you. No excuse not to offer that deal for season ticketholders. Especially with how great the TSN TV deal is, right now is the time to drop ticket prices and ...

Re: 2016 All Things Lions Marketing & Promotions

I was given the same survey and for the question, "On a scale from 0-10 where 0 is not at all satisfied and 10 is very satisfied how would you rate your overall experience with this game?" I rated the experience a "6" out of 10, with the comment: I am a DIEHARD Lions fan, but from the opening whist...

Re: Leos/Calgary Post Game Thoughts

Do bums in seats really matter that much any more? On a terrific night for football against a good team, with the promise of an exciting game, merely 21,341 attend. I honestly believe players take their cue from the surroundings (butts in the seats) and the energy in the building (noise level) - sm...

Re: 2016 All Things Lions Marketing & Promotions

Yeah, the whole "Summer Time" argument is garbage. The issues are clearly with prices and where people see the CFL in relation to other pro sports. The Lions see themselves one way and it's clearly a much different way than most people do. The Lions might believe the team makes more money from small...

Re: 2016 All Things Lions Marketing & Promotions

In most markets the CFL seems to be shifting from a gate driven league to a TV driven league. I hope they are smart enough, and they do appear to be, to realize the future of the CFL lies in a large part with the internet as a online product. That's all well and good, but they have to find a way to...

Re: 2016 All Things Lions Marketing & Promotions

Really wanted to go to the game this past weekend but no way in this world was I going to pay these ticket prices for me and my partner. What the hell happened? Sure, I could sit in the endzone and save some cash but why would I want to do that and watch half the game on the screen. I may as well st...

Re: New BC Lions Jersey for 2016

I have "sent" a tweet to the Lions and Adidas Canada asking if they could confirm or deny the rumour I heard that the Lions will be unveiling a third jersey this year. So far, radio silence... But I see the Als used their third jerseys last game, even though it began life as a Reebok product. No do...

Re: 2016 CFL Thread

Yeah, thought that interference call was weak. Personally, thought the receiver should have gotten award for the most dramatic attempt to fall and make it look he was interfered with. But no one is ever really happy with the officiating. They got their gift tonight which I guess is fair enough give...

Re: Nick Moore Gone for Season

Absolutely ridiculous. Not happy about this one bit. Wish players would act like they've scored before instead of acting like they've just won the Grey Cup after every score. What a useless injury.

Re: Lions at Riders, Game Journal and Post Game Comments

I guess I wouldn't are a good coach in the CFL. If I was running that game I would have pulled Jennings after the half. That's why Wally is so successful. Good call Wally , carry on. I think Wally and his staff have clearly outcoached the opposing coaches in most, if not all games this year. The pl...

Re: Lions at Riders, Game Journal and Post Game Comments

The expansion draft had nothing to do with Reilly going to the Esks. He is 2 years younger than Lulay who was the MOP, MVP, franchise QB, and Reilly was due to become a free agent and ready to be a starting QB. The Esks had Nicols at QB and were the best team for Reilly to compete for a starting jo...

Re: Lions at Riders, Game Journal and Post Game Comments

Riders must be regretting the day they released Jennings. No doubt. But every team goes through that. We basically gave Mike Reilly away for peanuts and look how that turned out for us. What goes around... as they say The Lions really had no choice with Reilly. They could have kept him around to ba...

I would like to see the Canucks. Period. They were missing all last season. ha
Chances are good that the Canucks will be missing again this season.
