Re: Simulated CFL Games

No sim love for the Bombers this year. Last in the west and a 29 - 0 blowout loss in the LDC to cap it off. Could almost buy in but Hamilton sitting last in the East says it all about taking the numbers overly seriously. Would love to see sim O'Shea get fired. Kyle Walters stepping in ala Jim Popp i...

Re: Speculation is over. No season in 2020.

Is it sustainable? Not sure, but I don't see huge upside in him. As Hambone says, 'journeyman.' Why did the Argos pursue Matt Nichols as a FA if they thought MBT was the answer ? Don't get me wrong, there are parts to his game I really like. But he may be that guy that throws for 350 passing yards ...

Re: Speculation is over. No season in 2020.

Love Travis but Hervey had to do something to get off the QB carousel that has hounded the Lions pretty much since Dickenson replaced Allen. Take away Dickenson's 1st year in BC and Lulay's 1st 3 years as starter and the position has been in a steady state of flux save for Jennings' flash in the pa...

Chinese super league football on Premier Sports for anyone with access and interest.

Could be a potential Ricky Foley sighting.

I agree 100%. I would have paid good money to Elemimian and others and got some other less expensive QB.
Someone like Travis Lulay ?

Re: petition TSN to change all-time Lions team

Maybe in Winnipeg the Bombers came to realize the same thing Buono recognized in BC? What led to Banks' departure in BC was that as he had done every previous year he wanted to re-do his contract to be paid money up front. Wally was OK with that as he recognized Banks was virtually a lock to make t...

Re: Speculation is over. No season in 2020.

MBT???? You don't mean the sometimes starter Argo QB, do you? Mike Reilly, while a bit past the peak of his career, is going to get consideration for the HoF when he retires; MBT???? Half the price, twice the value imo. Could be that I am the only one thinking that though. I liked what the Argos di...

Re: Speculation is over. No season in 2020.

With the past 37 Grey Cups under my belt it is attractive to me because of that association with the Grey Cup. It will be cool to have my name linked to the Cup in the CFHOF and to the Lions at BCP. I'll be signing up. With a track record of 37 in a row they should be adding your name for free as a...

Re: Speculation is over. No season in 2020.

So they didn't get the $150,000 from the government, now they go after the fan to cough up $400 a shot to have their name etched onto something that is probably not the actual Grey Cup. I think the chances of success with the program are about the same. I am amazed by the lack of good ideas the Leag...

Re: petition TSN to change all-time Lions team

on Korey Banks, i worry somehow that my facts are wrong........ but i've checked/re-checked many times. On January 31, 2014, Banks was traded to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in exchange for non-import wide receiver Kito Poblah.[4] On February 19, 2014, the Bombers signed Banks to a contract extension ...

Re: Speculation is over. No season in 2020.

CFL contracts don't seem very long in general............ naive question but does everyone's contract shorten by a year? or is like 2020 never happened? for players who don't opt out...... My understanding is the 2020 year counts as a year of the contract. Hopefully it means only nine more years of...

Re: Speculation is over. No season in 2020.

MBT going to free agency is a big one. I liked what I saw from him last year. Like him better than Mike Reilly to be honest. Believe most opt outs were one year deals with Ricky Collins being an exception. His deal requires him to go back to Edmonton if he doesn't make the NFL. CFL didn't really com...

Re: Speculation is over. No season in 2020.

Any rumblings yet on CFL players who might opt out of their contracts when that door opens on Monday? Good explanation of the system on 3DN. If you go there is a $6600 payout for vets. Nothing said about first year guys with a contract that obviously is not guaranteed. If you stay, medical coverage...

While arguably Milt Stegall is better than James Murphy in terms for Blue Bombers receivers, one huge difference between the two is that Stegall never won the elusive Grey Cup in his 14-year CFL career while Murphy won three.
That was never on Milt.
