What is "the Argo drama plan"?
Just making reference to the delay in filling the gm and coach position last season in Toronto. Do not have the dates but pretty sure they went into the draft without a gm.

It's all good. Suppose I was just trying to make the post interesting. Just a fan

Re: Football Operations: Ed Hervey - GM, Wally Buono - VP and HC

Hey guys, Liking the big statement move. In place and done by Dec. 1. Would have been a long off season with the Argo drama plan although apparently there is merit to that program. Bold decision maker is the description I feel applies well. Looking forward to the synergy with Geroy. All they need no...

Kudos for being a fan.

Would love to see a Ring of Honor for fans who have given so much to the game.

Attendance was no where near the announced 26,400. > 20,000 would be closer.

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

Typical of the Bombers season. Another 2 points that they were fortunate to get. Not as good as their record would imply. Thought Chris Williams had his best game of the year. Manny showed up as well. Surprised JJ24 is not used for outlet type pass options. The direct snap was kind of tricky the fir...

Chris Williams

Chris Williams was absolutely, with out a doubt, the most electric player in the CFL through the early part of the 2016 season. It is so easy to see how it could seem like a good idea. Is it too much brilliant hindsight to say the Lions would have been further ahead standing pat with Nick Moore. Peo...

Re: CFL Games of Week 17, October 13 - 14

Lions are catching Winnipeg at a good time. Strong chance of a win imo with or without Nichols.
Turnovers and field position will be key.
Not saying it saves your season.

Re: RedBlacks 30 - Lions 25, Post-Game Stats and Comments

Tough loss.
From looking so good. JJ10 played well. Sadly Chris Williams has not fit in
and has pushed Nick Moore out. The drop in the end zone was a killer.

Are you ready for some football?
Rested and ready to go. Believe the message will be that this is the chance to do something about the season today.
Thinking JJ24 goes over 100 in his old home town.

....coaching does make huge difference
so does losing your starring QB
Criticize Wally but at least he knows about having two quarterbacks.
Walters and O Shea overpaid Nichols and hoped for the best. Luckily again for the Bombers the injury did not look serious.
Could get interesting yet.

Re: Is Wally Staying around in 2018?

Thinking the plan at Free Agency was that it would be easier to sell a Grey Cup champ than an also ran which hasn't yet come to fruition although it could. If things are status quo it is time for the players to look to themselves for the answer. Not a fan of the idea of going with a defensive guy fo...

Re: CFL Games of Week 15, September 29 -- September 30

Pick: Edmonton by 3. If Swaze Waters hits the field goal! Should be a dog fight at commonwealth. Andrew Harris was unstoppable last time out. Bombers are due for a reality check. Pick: Tiger-Cats by 3. Cats are rolling but the division rivalry says not this time. Hard to see the Argo defenders doing...
