Re: Who are your Top 5 Despicable B.C. Lions Players?

KG finished second in passing yardage for 2014 behind Ricky Ray and ahead of Henry Burris, Mike Reilly, and Bo Levi. Drew Willy was third. He commented later that BC was not a good fit. KG was a good teammate and a class player throughout his career despite all the negativity. His teams won a lot o...

Re: LaPolice picks best all-time CFL minds (all former Lions)

Bud Grant wasn't a great X's and O's tactician. He was more of the old school General, strong leader but not a screamer type of leader who relied on his trusted long term assistants both in the CFL and NFL IIRC. What Grant excelled at was picking players - mostly from the interior of the US who were...

Re: LaPolice picks best all-time CFL minds (all former Lions)

Wally Buono was the winningest all time coach for a reason - now of which were his ability to do these three things: 1. offensive creativity 2. defensive creativity 3. in game decision making. He set a tone and culture that worked for his time and the generations of players he had. Players who fit b...

Re: Where's the money?

In the crash of 2008 that was the greatest transfer of wealth ever imagined. The rich - especially in the USA - got massively richer. The concentration of wealth in the USA really spiked up with that 1%. Canada doesn't' come close to wealth disparity like the USA. If you have cash to invest now is n...

Re: Who are your Top 5 Despicable B.C. Lions Players?

You guys got it wrong Josh Boden breaking Paris Jackson's jaw. It was Jerome Messam. "In 2010, he broke former Lions' teammate Paris Jackson's jaw in a dressing-room fight and received a suspended sentence and fine for an altercation in a London, Ont., nightclub." Wally defended his guy when he arri...

Re: Who are your Top 5 Despicable B.C. Lions Players?

Not sure "despicable" is the word that we should use to describe people here. "Deserving of contempt or scorn; vile. That may be or deserves to be despised; contemptible; base; vile; worthless: applicable equally to persons and things: as, a despicable man; a despicable gift." Jason Jimenez or Khali...

Re: Shutdown of XFL Could Be Permanent

XFL files for bankruptcy and is naturally up for sale in case some very rich billionaire wants two things: 1. to own his own league - not sure that is as good as owning an operating team if prestige is part of that desire. 1b. Along with the no. 1, get a nice tax write off. Given the pandemic - a sa...

Re: COVID-19 : How it could impact Lions/CFL

Our provincial leadership has presented a somewhat unified response to the crisis, and has effectively mitigated the impacts on the health care system to this point. However, our economy is in total meltdown and there is no coherent strategy to deal with this, other than waiting helplessly for a va...

Re: COVID-19 : How it could impact Lions/CFL

We have to be happy with how it's working its way thru British Columbia if the key stats that the experts and researchers focus on are meaningful. They're saying hospitalization rates, ICU patients and deaths are more important than the actual number of cases. We're extremely lucky that our kid's s...
