Probably more Insurance in case incumbent QBs aren't ready to go. Fajardo was fun to watch when Ray went down with injury last summer. More mobile than most these days. (Certainly more than Gale).

Re: Johnny Manziel Offered 2 Year Contract

Although that statement would seem to indicate an end to the Ticats' interest in Manziel, I'm not sure we can necessarily assume that. The spring league ends before CFL training camps. I know. it was just really funny the way the Ticats did it--HUGE CAPS headline then a tiny actual message below (a...

Re: Pending Lions free agents

I am quite happy that the Lions new GM is able to bring in a lot of players that he has had as players in the past. It speaks highly of what players who know Hervey think of him. He is doing lots to strengthen team weaknesses. I agree. It looks like his rep (at least with his players) is better tha...

Re: Johnny Manziel Offered 2 Year Contract

I like what HAM did there. :rotf:
It's what he deserves with his disrespectful attitude to our game.

Re: Questions for Ambrosie?

^^^^This.
That was my take on the 1040 segment as well. TSN-ESPN want it, and Ambrosie is pitching it for them.
I'll watch the Facebook videos over the weekend. This was the fifth and last of his "town hall" style meetings. Has anyone seen video of the other four?

Ambrosie is about to be live on 1040 right now (3rd hour of Donnie & the Moj).

Re: Super Bowl LII Game Day Thread, February 4, 2018

That was one of the most entertaining football games I've ever seen (and that includes both NFL and CFL). Just 1 punt has to be a SB record. Both defenses were sorely lacking, and the placekicking miscues (in a controlled environment) added to the surprises. I watched it at the Rio Theatre this year...

Re: Odell Willis headed to B.C.

Charleston Hughes for Vernon Adams? Are you kidding me?!? What am I missing with Adams? He seems like more of a 3rd down sneak / wildcat guy. I know Hughes is no spring chicken but I could see this as maybe....I dunno.....Adams and a draft pick....like a FIRST ROUNDER perhaps?? lol DH :cool: it`s a...

Re: Odell Willis headed to B.C.

Charleston Hughes wasn't in HAM very long. They turned around and dealt him to SSK for QB Vernon Adams, Jr.

With another QB addition, it looks like very little chance of Manziel ending up in HAM.

Re: 2017 NHL Thread

I liked after Boeser competed in shooting accuracy it took them a few minutes to fix the LED array he broke on one of his shots, and Crosby was congratulating him on being the time to beat in the event.

He will be giving the car he won as MVP to his sister.

Re: Darian Durant - Signs 1 year deal with Bombers

Good fit for Durant and Bombers. The Bombers are headed in the right direction and Durant still has skills. Rarely does a CFL QB stay healthy enough to start 18 games in a season and Durant could be the right guy to step in for 3 or 4 games and still deliver wins. Nichols is clearly the #1 guy, but...

Re: 2017-18 NFL Season Thread

I was a bit disappointed MIN didn't make it to the SB, as it would have been an historic first time with a home team hosting. The NFL apparently was concerned if they had as they want it to be always a neutral site game. https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/possibility-of-vikings-making-the-super-bowl...

Re: Lions ownership discussion thread

I have great respect for David Braley but it’s looking more and more likely that the Lions will eventually end up as part of an estate sale. I hope he’s made clear provisions for that in his will. Sadly, I tend to agree this is looking very possible. The only changes that could have an effect on hi...
