Re: Eskimos: change your name

sir john a's starvation plan to clear the west to make room for white colonization, was remarkably similar to Hitler's starvation plan for eastern Europe to make room for German colonization. by now, it's not uncommon to hear ppl mention that south Africa modeled their apartheid system on Canada's r...

Re: Johnny Manziel to the CFL?

so fed up with this sideshow... hate the way his violent past is being spun as mere "accusation" by media - he was indicted by a grand jury, which saw medical evidence of him rupturing his girlfriend's eardrum, which while not a criminal conviction, is by comparison, more serious than just being cha...

Re: Lions ownership discussion thread

here's a few points im taking from this audio: -relationship b/w buono and braley is becoming strained -braley will likely not just be absentee owner but absentee president for foreseeable future -this is void of common sense and is a test for the new commish -sekeres says braley is so stubborn he w...

Re: Marco Iannuzzi to retire at the end of this season

these leos are mighty luck to have someone like marco as stoked as he is to get involved in the business side of things. with the incompetence and lack of interest on display, it's not like things could get much worse. i realize there are differing opinions on that, but now is the time for fresh blo...

Re: 2017 All Things Lions Marketing & Promotions

The Lions have put themselves in a real tough position because of the pricing structure we've been seeing for over 10 years now. They are going to have a real hard time putting buts in the seats when they, in my opinion, have lost an entire generation of new fans because of the way they started pri...

Re: The decline of Vancouver sports media & its effect on Lions

Bob Lenarduzzi got featured in an interview segment on cbc radio's afternoon drive show the other day, ahead of the whitecaps playoff game. can't recall similar happening before any recent lions playoff game. that's the #1 rated station in town BTW.

Re: 2017 All Things Lions Marketing & Promotions

I have never heard this ad but can’t believe it exists. What if Solly were to actually rupture his Achilles? Would they still run it? Let’s run an ad that postulates that someone’s career coming to an end is entertaining..... :dizzy: How about “is Wally about to add to being the winningest coach in...

Re: Lions ownership discussion thread

And yet it might be an improvement on the present situation. Do we really know what kind of philosophy Mark W would have as HC? He is younger, no doubt more energetic, with his own ideas. Might Wally be ready to let go, something he has said is difficult for him to do? Might Wally, in view of all t...

Re: 2017 All Things Lions Marketing & Promotions

being "staffed up" doesn't necessarily mean they are doing a good job, or being paid well, or given adequate budget to work with and the right vision and guidance to be successful. not that it would be possible to successfully sell this horrendously priced ticket scheme or the drudgery that watching...

Re: Lions ownership discussion thread

a somewhat interesting idea from cfldb. if this is the kind of thing that makes braley tick and get off his goddamn arse and sign a deal then so be it. can't see how it sweetens an already sour pot for the prospective new owner though. if anything it seems like a bit of the "poison pill" approach to...

Re: Bombers 26 - Lions 20, Post-Game Stats and Comments

Was Jones strictly a pocket passer when he was a player? it's been quite a while but i do seem to recall him as a pocket passer who relied heavily on the deep ball to receivers like milt stegall especially. he put up a lot of yards and threw plenty of TDs but also plenty of INTs, and his completion...

Re: Bombers 26 - Lions 20, Post-Game Stats and Comments

at this point pretty much our only hope to not miss the playoffs for the first time in 20 yrs is if the lions coaches have an epic prayer circle to their beloved god and they better hope he hasn't tuned them out as much as their players have. you really have to wonder how much the pastor wally side ...

Re: Johnny Manziel to the CFL?

I'm guessing that the CFL did this to give the Ticats a graceful way to exit from this. in giving the ticats a graceful way to exit, the league has tied itself in knots... that is one of the most bizarre and awkward press releases i've seen in a while... basically "we are trying desperately to spin...
