Re: Lions name Jarious Jackson offensive coordinator and QB coach

I must have missed it, but I see that RP21 is now a regional scout for the team. A good move keeping Ryan involved with the team in some capacity. Another class guy.

Re: 2017 All Things Lions Marketing & Promotions

And the Red Zone tickets should start in the sections at the 30 yard lines i.e. that's 4 more sections that should be Red Zone rather than Coach's Sideline. Or create another price point for those sections between the 20 and 30 yard lines at no more than $60 per ticket. Casual fans, young people wil...

Re: 2017 All Things Lions Marketing & Promotions

The other strategy I don't get is the constant "charge as much (or just a tiny break - in some cases more) and get "X" or "X and Y" with it." The Lions do these value adds with almost every promotion. NO! Just try a promotion with a steep discount sans the extras. I don't want a car flag or a hat. ...

Re: 2017 All Things Lions Marketing & Promotions

Just went to the Lions website, same old pricing/seating zone structure. Good grief. $198 for 3 game pack for the Red Zone, which for me is the first decent seat. After taxes and fees, that's pushing $70 per ticket per game ... should be like $50 to 55 given the state of current demand. $261 for Coa...

Re: 2017 All Things Lions Marketing & Promotions

As many have said in this thread, in the past 5 or 6 years the Lions have totally missed out on the youngsters who are now in their 20's. They are the customers and fans of the future. When I was in my 20's (the 80's) in university the Lions were a big deal to all of us. My 21 year old son is only a...

Re: Lions and RP21 part ways

I suspect that will be it for RP21. 12 years playing professional is a very good run. Class guy, one of the great long-time Lions. If he does not catch on with another team hopefully we see him at BC Place sometime this summer. Might be future coaching material.

$25 to 30M selling price should get it done. Drop in the bucket for the Aquilini's.

Re: Lions ownership discussion thread

I'm totally o.k. with the Aquilini's owning the Lions, especially if Sidhoo is also involved. Important to have a football guy involved. Deep pockets also important in terms of investing in the team i.e. practice facility, marketing. I can see Wally sticking around to some degree for 2 or 3 more yea...

Re: Rintoul is toast (grab the pitch forks and storm TSN 104

Couldn't agree with you more re the overexposure of the NFL vs. CFL. I enjoy all football talk, but way too many NFL insiders. And agree re Mitch Berger ... comes across extremely arrogant. If they got rid of Pratt and Bro Jake hopefully that would also be the end of Berger. Hopefully Rintoul gets h...

Re: 1985 Western Final Full Game

Thanks for posting that. I was there, I remember it was a mob scene on the field after the game. Those games against Winnipeg in the 80's were intense. It was a great rivalry and a great time to be a Lions fan. Also cool that someone who was just an infant at the time would look back at games from t...

Re: Lions ownership discussion thread

Sidoo was in my Economics 100 class at UBC 37 years ago. I remember him well. Friendly guy. May have not been the best student at the time but he sure has done well. I believe his Dad passed away while he was in school, playing for the T Birds. Would take a lot of perseverance to move on from that. ...

Re: Stampeders 42 - Lions 15 Post Game Comments

Bottom line: Calgary has better and more talent than any other team in the league by far. All the X's and O's in the world wouldn't change that, although they are better in that dept. as well. They have lost one game since early July, a mean nothing last game of the regular season. By far the bigges...

Re: Leos/Bombers Semi-Final Post Game Thoughts

So true. If a QB was hit late, high and dirty like Manny was, the guy would have been thrown out of the game, fined and suspended. There is no place in any sport for that kind of hit. Just glad that Manny was able to get up from that. It could have been so much worse, and for what ?? :dizzy: :thdn: ...

And I'm now a bit pissed off that I bought my tickets on Wed. when lots of way better seats are now clearly available for the same price.
